Luckily, the streak ends at 13 for the Toronto Raptors

Steve Russell - Staff Photographer

Even though I'm not a Leafs fan I still want to see them do well. It means that the photo department will have interesting things to do. A playoff run will put a photographer or two on the road with the team and two or three might cover home games.

The same goes for the Raptors, except I'm a fan! It hurt me to to see the team go through their latest losing streak. But I was glad I was able to be on the floor to shoot them snap that streak!
