Are the Raptors and Celtics rivals yet?

Are the Raptors and Celtics rivals yet?

A modest investigation into the ongoing situation atop the Atlantic Division. Last night the Raptors beat the Celtics after a stirring comeback in the second half. At one point Toronto was down 16 points (in the second quarter); later they faced a nine point deficit in the fourth. There were stretches that looked mighty grim.

With one Woj Bomb went the hopes of an in-season acquisition of the third wheel Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan have been in desperate need of this season. In Tuesday’s 114-106 win over the ankle-nipping Boston Celtics, a potential in-house solution revealed itself.
