Battle Brewing for Raptors Starting SF?
A battle could be brewing for the starting small forward spot. Struggling Rasual Butler had another ugly game on offence 1-for-8 shooting after coming in 8-for-31 in his previous five games. He showed well on defence, picking up a couple of blocks and a steal, but James Johnson was everywhere defensively and 2-of-3 from the field. While Butler missed a number of open threes that could have opened a gap for the Raptors when the game was tight.
