TORONTO - It’s almost a nightly conversation now as Dwane Casey emerges from his office to speak with the media.

At some point some well-meaning scribe asks how Casey is going to keep his team from getting fat and sassy as they get deeper into January where some of the NBA’s lesser lights await on the schedule.

The question was timely last night given the No. 30th-ranked Milwaukee Bucks were in town.

Casey though refuses to play that game maintaining there is no team in the NBA the Raptors shouldn’t be able to “get up for” based on where they are in the development stage.

“You keep asking that question,” Casey said Monday night. “It’s not a legit question.”

And then, as if to prove both sides of this difference of opinion correct, the Raptors went out and steamrolled the Bucks for 38 points in the first quarter only to get beat by eight in the second.

Eventually, the first-quarter Raptors re-emerged and ran away in a 116-94 win.
