Amir Johnson may have overstated things a bit yesterday when he compared the Raptors bench to that of the 17-consecutive win and league-leading L.A. Clippers which goes by the name A Tribe called Bench, but we see where he’s going.

With Kyle Lowry running the point, a minute-by-minute improving Terrence Ross at shooting guard, Mr. Everything Alan Anderson at small forward, an undersized power forward in Landry Fields at the four and Johnson himself at the five, there is plenty to like about Dwane Casey’s second unit.

To be clear they are not as feared as that Clippers tribe which includes Jamaal Crawford, Eric Bledsoe, and Matt Barnes, but like those Clippers reserves the Raps reserves are having an impact.
