Andrea Bargnani is trying to accomplish something he has never before done in the NBA. Bargnani has appeared in all 69 games this season and is on course to play a full season for the first time. He missed four games last season and 17 in his rookie year.

Bargnani would be the only Raptor to play all 82 games if he manages to get through the season unscathed.

The Raptors began a season-longest five-game homestand last night against the Charlotte Bobcats. The team's current form would suggest it doesn't matter much. Toronto is now only 13-20 at the Air Canada Centre after losing to Charlotte and is headed for one of the worst home seasons ever.

Three times - in 2005-06, 2002-03 and in their very first year of existence back in 1995-96 - the Raptors won only 15 of 41 home games. Their second-worst home records came in 1996-97 and 2003-04 when they were 18-23.
