Toronto Raptors 104, Charlotte Bobcats 100 That was an extremely hard fought win which required our starters to play capacity minutes, anything less from them would’ve meant a loss. Chris Bosh, Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon and Rasho Nesterovic logged 46, 41, 36 and 28 minutes, respectively, as Sam Mitchell’s hand was forced by the ineffectiveness… Read more »
New Orleans Hornets 118, Toronto Raptors 111 I never quite figured out how the Raptors had won their earlier meeting with the Hornets so going into this one there was some optimism that we might be able to get a win against the West-leading Hornets who by all accounts are a vastly superior team. And… Read more »
NY Knicks 95, Toronto Raptors 103 Beggars can’t be choosers so we can’t be getting too picky about the type of wins we get as long as they’re wins. Despite missing Robinson, Marbury, Randolph and Curry, the Knicks put up a very commendable fight and if it weren’t for their bad FT shooting and blown… Read more »
It used to be that you’d circle the Knicks coming to town when the schedule came out, now it’s an after-thought even on game day. Coming off the Detroit win, this should be a walk in the park for any playoff team (East or West) but we’ll see if the Raptors can match their intensity,… Read more »
Detroit Pistons 82, Toronto Raptors 89 It’s good that Jose Calderon could see what Sam Mitchell couldn’t: that TJ Ford is best suited as a starter and coming off the bench for him isn’t exactly second nature. These sentiments were being echoed by fans well before the media had the temerity to even suggest a… Read more »
Let’s start things of with an interesting discussion going on in a remote part of this blog concerning race. It’s fascinating stuff! Once you’re done understanding what constitutes white and what doesn’t, let’s move along to Chris Bosh’s birthday bash held on Sunday night which privileged blogger Dinosty had the chance of attending. I can’t… Read more »
Toronto Raptors 100, Denver Nuggets 109 Déjà vu. Just like in Cleveland, in a tight game coming out of a timeout with 2:09 left, Jamario Moon finds himself open from 25 feet and clangs a jumper, Denver scores on the ensuing possession and a Bosh turnover combined with an Iverson three puts this one to… Read more »
I don’t feel like putting anything else up, let me know if you really want to see Drogba score twice on us and I’ll make it happen. We’re toast in the league, our only chance of silverware this season is the Champions League. Watch :: Download
Toronto Raptors 83, Cleveland Cavaliers 90 Depending on your Raptor beliefs you can look at this one in a few different ways: 1) All in all a good effort by the Raps, too much Lebron in the end 2) Jose sat for way too long in the third/fourth quarter during which time Cleveland went +6,… Read more »
Miami Heat 54, Toronto Raptors 96 This game was not a barometer to measure how effective the Raptors are but merely a simple test to check whether the Raptors are still interested in playing basketball this season. Turns out they are. At some point in this game you had to feel sorry for the Miami… Read more »
I hope that there is a coach here that can explain this:
Mid way through the first quarter and well into the second when you’re down double digits and you bring in Vaz and company and start the 3 guard set the team passed the ball a million times and guess what happened? Well you seen the game I don’t have to explain.
Then Casey starts the second half with his iso Lou game , now remember during the run in the first half Lou had about 4 assists, he was playing a hell of a game.
You could see as soon as Vaz came in (second half) what Casey’s plan was, give the ball to Lou (you know that little bounce pass is the sign..lol..) and then everybody put their finger up their respective rears because the play is the iso Casey extravaganza AND believe me I don’t blame Lou for this!
This all Casey’s master plan that busted right on his face in about 5 minutes, the team went from 58-53 deficit to a 71-56 one. Lou bricked four and a turn over, AGAIN I don’t blame Lou entirely for this, the guys were playing so well for a quarter and a half, Lou was driving and give it up and the other guys were making the shots they really looked like a good unit.
Then Casey changes the PROGRAM! I just don’t get this guys !
Oh well, something got to change here this is a little more then a slump. Hey Casey maybe that passing thing is ok, it may work! Actually it worked for the end of the first and the full second. I bet there were more passes on that second quarter than the whole game.
