The Raptors may be 53 games into the 82-game schedule, but it feels like they are just getting started.
For the next four days, the team will disengage as the league shifts focus to celebrate the best of the best at the all-star game. Only Terrence Ross will be there and his participation will be limited to the dunk contest.
The rest of the team will have the time, if they so choose, to look back on a year that has already been three seasons in one.
