Raptors vs. the LeBronless(?) Lebrons, 7pm.

By

Deja Vu week comes to an end tonight when Cleveland takes the court in Toronto. The big story, of course, is whether Bosh and James will play. It’s pretty obvious that they need their superstar more than we need ours. This young season has been Lebron’s version of the one-man play: He does it all except… Read more »

If RaptorsTalk can say it, I can say it: Lame Post Alert! After a game like that, you’d think the Grizzlies might have been better off just showing up, collecting their bobbleheads, and heading back to their hotel. Mike Miller: 0-5 Rudy Gay: 2-9 Pau “I used to enjoy this” Gasol”: 4-12 To recap: Three… Read more »

6-7, Raptors vs. The Beat-a-Bulls, High Noon

By

The Raptors have a habit of ‘hanging around’ winnable games, unable to drive nails into the coffins of lesser teams. Well, you can’t hang around when you’re playing against Lebron – he’ll string you up by your shoelaces and leave you for dead, swaying from the rafters like a worked-over punching bag.

Yeah Sam, single coverage on Lebron is a great idea!

By

Toronto Raptors 108, Cleveland Cavaliers 111 Another day, another Raptors loss, another game that was just begging to be won through the first three quarters. But when you let a team hang around for that long, they’re bound to come back and bite you in the ass and bite they did. Chris Bosh’s monster 41… Read more »
