Well, that was fun.

In one of the most entertaining games of the season, the Raptors were able to squeak out a win over the banged up Nuggets. The fifth place Nuggets, playing without Gallinari, Iguodala and Chandler, displayed their incredible depth as even without three key players, they were inches away from getting the W.

This game was Toronto's version of all-star weekend. The first half was the dunk contest, as the Raptors jammed down dunk after dunk after dunk, and mixed in some alley-oops in as well. John Lucas' 3-point barrage early in the fourth quarter was our 3-point contest, as he hit four straight uncontested threes in a short span. And of course, Rudy Gay's game winning shot was our All-star game, as Rudy displayed some All-Star caliber talent.
