Happy Holidays! All I wanted for Christmas was more playing time for Julian Wright. I received it, but unfortunately it was due to injuries and a bone head ejection. The end of the calendar year, is a pretty useless milestone for the NBA season (after 41 games, or during all-star break is certainly more natural),… Read more »
Ever hear of the “30-Win” trap? RR member Balls of Steel does his best to break it down in a nutshell. “Many teams that finish with this much wins is usually not good enough to make the play-offs (and in the odd chance that they did, they’s be blown away to smithereens in the first… Read more »

That was fun to watch. If you’re a fan of defensive basketball, then this was the game for you, and by “the” game I mean perhaps the only game you have experienced ever where the Raps played lockdown basketball for a full 48 minutes.

That was the winnable game on this three-game roadtrip. Too bad all the Raptors could muster was a decent quarter of play, after that the wheels came off and by wheels I mean turnovers. Twenty-five turnovers leading to 27 points, it’s like a disease without a cure. I’d like the NBA to keep a stat on the number of fastbreak points that were the result of turnovers, I bet that it would be really high for this one.
