Raptors' five-game win streak over
By MIKE GANTER, QMI Agency
The five-game win streak is a thing of the past.
The San Antonio Spurs made sure of that closing out both the second and third quarter with strong finishes to sap any momentum the Raptors had been building in a 100-80 win.
While there was a huge discrepancy in trips to the free throw line with the Spurs getting there 27 times to the Raptors' eight, it would be a disservice to the Spurs to suggest they did not earn this one.
Bottom line, this Spurs team is healthy and have a bevy of offensive threats. Every man on the floor is an offensive threat, none moreso (and it sounds strange to suggest it at his age) than Tim Duncan.
