Teams have good memories, even bad ones like the Detroit Pistons. They remembered the embarrassment that was dealt to them on their home floor and delivered a dominating performance as they ran the Raptors off their own court last night. Their was one Piston whose memory was not so good, however. Tracy McGrady forgot he’s a washed up has-been and single-handedly put the Raps away in the second quarter.

Linas has been inconsistent as ever this season, but who hasn’t? Weems certainly has. So, even though we’ve struggled as of late and the SF position continues… Read more »
I listened to the Cleveland commentators the whole game (I do this often now since I find the it to be comedic gold). Some things that were said:
