They won tonight in OT, 78-74. Carter got hurt, Rose helped carry the team.

Toronto features 4 ex-Bulls: Rose, Marshall, Baxter, and Mason Jr. The first 3 started tonight alongside Carter and AWill.

Rose had 20 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists tonight, on 7-19 shooting. Rose guarded Baron Davis: 4-17 FG, 10 points.

Marshall had 16 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 steals.

Baxter grabbed 8 boards in 18 minutes.

Mason scored 3 points in 2 minutes.

Since the trade (not including tonight):

Rose is shooting 40% with 3.9 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 14.8 points per game. His last 5 games, he's shooting 45%, and has scored 16, 12, 26, 17, and 17.

Marshall is shooting 49% with 10.4 rebounds and 17.1 points per game. His last 5 games have been not as good: 41% shooting, 12.2 rebounds, 13.4 points per game.

Baxter is getting more and more playing time with the Raps as time goes on. He's averaging 17.1 minutes since the trade, but 24 over the last 5 games. He's shooting 50.5% and grabbing 4.3 rebounds per game since the trade, but scoring just 6 PPG.

Toronto is 4-3 this month. They were 8-6 in December. Since the trade, that'd make them 12-9.

I'd say that overall, Rose has been just integrating into the team. His numbers aren't spectacular, and they never will be again... any shot at Jalen Rose becoming an All-Star in the East have been shattered 1) by this trade and 2) by the advent of Lebron James, bumping everyone else off the roster by one. If Jalen was the guy just outside looking in, now he's one extra guy away.

But anyway, Toronto is certainly doing okay, although it kind of rose and fell for them. If they put together another run and can sustain about 500 ball for the rest of the season, they'll be hanging around for the top 4 seeds in the East.
