Raptors Look to Make it 3 Wins in 4 Games

90 points-in-the-paint. That’s what the Raptors gave up to the Suns on Friday. Fortunately for them, the Mavs are far more perimeter oriented. Dampier isn’t the threat that Shaq is in the paint, and the rest of the guys work outside in. Not that it matters, because ultimately the Mavs are playing for a playoff… Read more »

Raptors are BBQ Chicken

1 of 3968 dunks put down by The Big Aristotle Suns 133, Raptors 113 Q: What do you call the Suns when they are missing both Nash and Stoudemire? A: Good enough to beat the Raptors.

I thought you said we should try to defend the saint more” edition Banks – if he goes to bed tonight thinking about that kid in public school that teased him saying he wouldn’t amount to anything, Marcus should be rest assured that the bully wasn’t talking about him as a person…just his… Read more »

Good business model? Is this in answer to their critics or do you think they feel they have hit a wall with respect… Read more »

Raps run over TWolves

Timberwolves 110, Raptors 118 Taking my first crack at post-game analysis, I’m happy I’m getting to do so after a Raptors win. The Raps definitely needed this game to keep their 4% playoff hopes alive – as calculated by ESPN’s John Hollinger.

Roll Call – Feb 24 vs Timberwolves

The “anybody ever hear of this Carney kid” edition Banks – back spasms. didn’t play. wouldn’t have cared if he did. Bargnani – sweeter than tiramisu. smoother than maple syrup. as handsome as a mountie. He was running hard, he was slamming, he was laying up, he swore when he missed a chippy. Only thing… Read more »
