Old Habits Reappear

Zach Randolph killed us. Yeah, that Zach Randolph. Raptors 107, Grizzlies 115 – Box Had a chance to digest this loss and as terrible and ugly it was, it wasn’t against a horrible team as some might think. We should’ve won this game, no question about it, but you have to factor in how well… Read more »

RR Ratings – Oct 30 @ MEM

By

They started it… Bosh: 7.5 Showed up, played hard. Did some damage. Actually, did a lot of damage 37/12 to be exact. Didn’t waste possessions, didn’t hesitate. BUT, Randolph had 30/7 too so I got to look at somebody for that and it’s Bosh. Still, the offensive game gets him a high grade, he shouldn’t… Read more »

Gameday: Raptors vs Grizzlies – Oct. 30/09

By

Things are going according to my plan. We’re only one game into the season, but the Raptors are gunning. I must admit, I was skeptical about the team during training camp since folks were injured and the game-play was lethargic, but the Raps found their on-switch, and took it right at LeBron et al.

Bargnani’s game evolves as confidence grows – National Post The evolution was apparent on Wednesday, as Bargnani's 28 points in the Raptors' win came in a variety of ways.

Andrea, are you for real?

Son, what did I say about bringing that garbage in here? Cavaliers 91, Raptors 101 – Box Expectations are still in check but that felt good. After the pre-season we had and all that talk of fatigue, chemistry, nine new players and what not, it was good to get our first quality win out of… Read more »

RR Ratings – Oct 28 vs CLE

By

They started it… Bosh: 7 Sometimes you don’t need to dominate, just don’t get dominated. Was overpowered early and started 0-3 but regained his confidence when Shaq went to the bench and grabbed some rebounds, 16 in total. Add a couple J’s against the slower bigs and you got a pretty good game from Bargnani’s… Read more »

Gameday: Raptors vs Cavaliers

By

Bosh hosts the Cavs tonight at the ACC. Let’s NBA! My life just got 30% better with the season starting today. The Raptors host the Cavs, who just came off a 95-89 loss at the hands of the C**tics last night. Seeing Anthony Parker in a Cavs uniform was unsettling for me. For those of… Read more »

Pressure on for Bosh, Colangelo to deliver – The Globe and Mail Are the Raptors bound for the NBA's upper class, ready to flex their uber-rich ownership's considerable financial muscle to add talent in search of playoff success with Bosh as the focal point on the floor and Colangelo the architect? Or is yet more… Read more »
