The Raptors are finding their legs now that their rotation is set

The Raptors have settled on a rotation, the players’ roles are being more clearly defined, they are defending like they want to most nights and, lo and behold, they are turning into a pretty good team.

A rocky start seems in the distant past after three consecutive victories and there are tangible reasons behind Toronto’s turnaround. The most significant is that coach Nick Nurse has found a rotation that works, a group that provides the versatility the team thrives on offensively and defensively.

Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Pascal Siakam and Aron Baynes start, with Chris Boucher, Norm Powell and Stanley Johnson as the three primary backups and someone from the group of Terence Davis, Malachi Flynn and Yuta Watanabe being used as an end-of-the rotation contributor, depending on the nightly matchups.
