Outpacing the Pacers on one night, keeping pace with their main rivals the next night, the Raptors continue to flirt with history.

With five games left, these Raptors have the chance to set a franchise record for most wins in a season.

They’ve already assured themselves of one mark no Raptor team has ever managed — most wins on the road.

To dub this group as road warriors would be pushing it too far, but winning is no easy feat in the NBA and winning on the road is even harder, even when the Raptors make it hard on themselves.

With their 102-98 win over the host Bucks Saturday night, the Raptors have now posted 21 road wins with two more remaining on the schedule.

The latest wasn’t easy, not decided until the very end as Milwaukee refused to go away, a testament to head coach Larry Drew and his players.

It was also a testament to Toronto’s lack of focus in playing a first half head coach Dwane Casey would refer to as 'crap'.
