Raptors turning their season around? Raptors defeat the Celtics 104 - 93

CBC Sports

Peterson finished with a career-high 37 points and drained seven three-pointers to guide the Toronto Raptors to a 104-93 victory over the Boston Celtics in the finale of a five-game homestand at Air Canada Centre.

Bosh chipped in with a career-high 26 points and added 11 rebounds, recording his fifth consecutive double-double. The Raptors are 8-0 this season when Bosh scores at least 20 points.

The Raptors seem to have something going these days they've had success against the Kings, the Magic and the Celtics as well as the Golden State Warriors recently. They've won four of their last five and what seemed like an entirely dismal season is starting to trend in the right direction.

Moe Pete has struggled for a couple of years now, but if he can turn his game around consistently like he has of late then that will be a tremendous boon for the Raptors. While Chris Bosh continues to impress with five straight double doubles. Bosh is considered the "new" franchise player for the Raptors - considering Vince Carter's dismal performance before being traded my sentiment is "The king is dead, long live the king!"

One thing that's struck me about Bosh is that he plays offense, he plays defense and he plays hard. He runs the court and you can tell he's hungry for a win when he's out there. This impresses me since Vince Carter couldn't even be bothered to try.
