Dwane Casey knew what his Raptors were up against.

He has seen this Thunder team develop from its infancy when it was brutal until the present day when the standings and everything else suggests it is the best team in the NBA right now.

“This team is probably one of the top teams in the league but this will give us a measuring stick of how far we still have to go, what we need to do and where we are right now,” Casey said before the game.

Hot on the heels of a gutsy win on the road over a Dallas team that has owned its home court, the Raptors took it up another notch knocking off the Thunder to become the first team this year to do so in a 104-98 win.

The Thunder had gone 13 consecutive home games without tasting defeat until the Raptors came calling.
