The "Pick Up Where We Left Off" Edition

The Raptors picked up where they left off before the break and continued to show their effectiveness on the road, and picked up another road win.  Kyle Lowry made his case on why he should have been an All-Star and outplayed Washington's John Wall in a 103-93 win on Tuesday night.
