Down by 17 at the third, the Raptors came back to win 104-93 with much thanks to Jason Kapono. The big shooter racked up 29 points and essentially saved the Raptors during the fourth quarter with his seemingly unconscious threes. He was a monster in the fourth; 4/4 from behind the arc. There was one three-pointer towards the end of the game, the assist from Calderon, where Kapono didn’t even seem to catch the ball, but rather volley it into the net. The way he was nailing shots from behind the arc while being contested by Pacers was almost Nowitzki-like and Kapono was definitely showing gleams of superstardom in last night’s game.
