TORONTO - Greivis Vasquez was speaking to a large circle of journalists Thursday when DeMar DeRozan squeezed his way in through the crowd and affectionately draped an arm around Vasquezs neck. Custom Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys .This seasons Toronto Raptors are a tight-knit bunch. And on a day ESPN pegged the Raptors chances at winning the NBA title at a whopping 41 per cent, they scoffed. Anything said outside of their gym, they said, is all just noise.We dont care about nothing ESPN is saying, honestly, DeRozan said. Nobody cares what anybody says. We care about everybody thats got this Raptors jersey on. Everything else dont matter to us, man.Weve got our confidence, Vasquez added. We dont need anybody to talk about us, whether its good or bad.The Raptors practised the day after their 126-115 victory at Atlanta that kept Toronto even with Memphis atop the NBA standings (13-2), and boosted their win streak to six games.Thursdays ESPNs Hollinger Playoff Odds gave the Raptors a 100 per cent chance at making the playoffs, and a 71 per cent chance of making the NBA final.Theyre lofty predictions never before seen in Toronto, but Raptors coach Dwane Casey similarly shrugged them off.Im not a betting man, how many more games have we got to go? A lot of games to go. Im not putting any credence in that, Casey said.When someone asked if the predictions had at least put a smile on his face, he answered: No. Not at all. None whatsoever. I live in reality. All I know is we have a tough game (Friday) night.The Raptors host the Dallas Mavericks (11-5) on Friday amid a huge buzz around Canadas lone NBA franchise. What would have normally been a relatively quiet practice Thursday drew a couple dozen journalists.The players say theyre not looking at records, or getting caught up in the buzz. Theyre just enjoying playing.This is the best team Ive played with by far, DeRozan said. Not just basketball-wise either. Personnel. Everybody gets along, everybody has a great relationship with one another. That goes a long way. . . the chemistry that we have is amazing.That even goes for his high school teams, DeRozan added.Asked what hes thankful for — Thursday was Thanksgiving in the U.S. — DeRozan answered, his arm still slung around Vasquez: Having teammates like Greivis. Honestly. Having teammates like all these guys here. Because it makes every day easier, even on the tough days, you find something to joke about, laugh about, have fun about.Weve all been on bad teams, and what it feels like to come in and work, on the tough days.While the Raptors are off to easily their best start in franchise history, theyve had a favourable schedule at home that included a stretch of seven games in a row at the Air Canada Centre. Theyve also had some luck on their side, playing a Memphis Grizzlies team that was missing five players to a flu virus, and an injury-riddled Oklahoma City squad missing stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.I dont believe in luck. I dont, DeRozan said. I understand how hard I work, how hard this man works (arm still around Vasquez), how hard the other 13 players on this team work. And when people say the luck thing to me, I take it personally, because I know how hard we work to be as good as we are.Wasnt no fluke what we did last year. Wasnt no fluke, no luck.DeRozan pointed to Torontos strong performances on the road — their come-from-behind win over LeBron James and the Cavaliers in Cleveland, Wednesdays solid victory at Atlanta — as proof their red-hot record is more than luck.We like playing on the road, we like playing in other peoples arenas, we get a thrill out of going to other peoples houses and beating them, DeRozan said. If youve got that type of mentality, we can go a long way.Casey said the way his team has won games — pulling out a victory in tough situations — is also proof of the teams growth.The last three games we were in a pickle, Casey said.They fell behind by 18 points to the Cavaliers before roaring back to beat them. They gave up seven three-pointers in the fourth quarter to Phoenix before clinching the win with a final 60 seconds of sheer hustle and hard work. They allowed Atlanta to stay close on Wednesday before pulling away down the stretch.I think two years ago, a year-and-a-half ago, we would have folded the tent, Casey said. But there seems to be a resolve developing with our players, fighting through stuff, fighting through adversity, making adjustments at halftime mentally and physically. Thats a tough way to live throughout this live. As a coach Id prefer wed start doing it the first quarter. . . thats our next step.Following Fridays game, the Raptors head west for three straight, playing the Lakers in Los Angeles on Sunday, the Kings on Tuesday in Sacramento, and the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. Carolina Hurricanes Store . Reimer told TSNs Mark Masters on Tuesday that he doesnt know if he will be moved leading up to the March 5 trade deadline but added he wasnt interested in discussing it. "Who knows whats going to happen on the horizon here and right now I dont know if I want to talk about it too much. Fake Hurricanes Jerseys . This week, they discuss the NCAAs revenue sharing, Don Zimmer, soccer language and Super Bowl 50. https://www.cheaphurricanes.com/ . As if the individual strands of grey hair or the increasing amount of joint pain werent reminders enough, the impending end of Jeters career is a slap-in-the-face indicator of a generations fleeting youth.Mark Sanchez wont be out of work long. According to a report from ESPN, the recently cut former New York Jets quarterback is expecting to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles soon. Sanchez injured his shoulder last season and is still rehabbing; he would have to pass a physical before signing with the Eagles. Sanchez would join Nick Foles and Matt Barkley on the Eagles roster, and would likely compete with Barkley, a fellow USC alum and fourth-round pick last year, to back up Foles next season. Carolina Hurricanes Gear. Sanchezs tumultuous tenure with the Jets ended with 12,092 passing yards and 68 touchdowns to 29 interceptions in four seasons. He missed all of last year. ' ' '
