TORONTO - There is plenty to like about the way the Toronto Raptors move the basketball and their collective offensive game these days.

But stopping the opposition is becoming more and more of a hit-and-miss proposition which has to be a worrisome trend if you are Dwane Casey.

Casey spent the better part of the first half of the season trying to re-establish a defensive mindset with this group and for a while there it seemed like his message got through.

Lately, though, defence once again seems like an afterthought.
