Toronto Raptors Know Their Season Is in Trouble

They know they’ve lost six straight and are in danger of heading into this week’s all-star break on the worst skid of a season full of them.

All the talk about having time to turn things around and it being a long season is just that: talk.

"There’s an urgency," Anthony Parker said matter-of-factly after Toronto’s latest defeat, a gruesome 78-70 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night. "It’s definitely an uphill battle at this point."

There have been no outward displays of anger but the disappointment and frustration is palpable in the Raptor locker room after each defeat.
