Be careful what you wish for wasn’t the saying of the day at Raptors practice, but it may as well have been.

Less than 24 hours after having their lunch handed to them by a veteran-laden Boston Celtics club the Raptors were back on the practice court trying to avoid a repeat of some of the finer points that made them such fodder for the Boston club.

And while certainly not all of the loss was on rookies Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross, there were enough teaching moments in the game to keep both with the coaching staff and in front of game film for an extended period of time Thursday morning before the actual practice.
