    Default Bosh Not Playing vs. Nets (and vs. Wizards)

    Chris didn't travel with the team to NJ and will stay behind and rest his ankle.

    This via Eric Smith's Twitter:

    Bosh left practice to get his left ankle looked at. Appears to be a mild sprain but want to be on the safe side. He will not travel to NJ.
    Time for Amir to shine tomorrow night.

    Nets have played real well in the 2 game since the break. Bargs, The Mask and Co. better step it up up, can't lose this one. I think I jinxed the BoshMan on a thread a couple days ago...

    I'm a little bit scared for this game. No Bosh and the Nets have played tight games and just beat Charlotte. With the way this one slipped away in 30 seconds, I don't know what to expect here.

    actually, if there was a time for bosh to be injured, it's now. time to test how the team would fare without him, on a team that they have a good chance of beating without him. it would be an interesting game.

    Sounds like a loss to me. Nets are better on paper than us w/o Bosh.

    I already know the answer. You don't want to have this information unless its absolutely neccessary. Believe me!

    Triano will probably stick to the script he used before when Bargnani was out and start Rasho.

    I joined this forum specifically to quote this BS. You think that, without Bosh, that we become the worst team in the NBA? Isn't this a forum for fans of the Raptors? I don't get it at all.

    This, combined with people actually complaining about Calderon's performance against the Grizzlies, makes me wonder how fun it is to be a fan of the Raps for some of these members.

    I don't mean to sound all high and mighty in my first ever post, but I have a question for half the peeps who post here: Is this a team you love or a team you love to hate?

    Normally, I'm not such a dick. I love coming to this forum for the links and reading some of the posts. It's a great site.

    I agree that Calderon's performance against the Grizzlies was above reproach. He's the reason we came back from BOTH Memphis leads. His energy was spectacular!

    All fans have the prerogative to critique their team. If someone wants to play psychic and call games ahead of time losses, how does that ruin your enjoyment of "the links and reading some of the posts"? Ignore it. Or, give a rebuttal as to why you disagree.

    I agree. This site rocks!

    Without Bosh we are the worst team in the NBA. Throw in our general malaise on back to backs, the nets playing pride and really not being as bad as thier record indicates and I say it comes down to another Devin Harris buzzer beater.

    It's quite apparent that the best thing about the Raptors is their depth. Really, a top-3 team in the league, depth-wise. I'm a huge Bosh fan, but I also believe that a team with Bargs, Hedo, Jose, Johnson and Jack can win more than 5 games in their first 50+.

    Bosh is great, but the Raptors aren't terrible. Actually, without Bosh on the floor the Raptors become better defensively. Yes, worse offensively, but they sort of balance out better than one would think. First, Hedo gets more touches. Bargs is a solid scorer, and you get a combo of Rasho/Amir/Reggie to play center while Bargs slides into PF, which is far more natural for him. So, we get more shots for Jose, Bargs and Hedo and the defence improves. We still have the depth.

    I'm sorry, but we are not the Miami Heat (or even the Cavs). We could absorb the loss of Bosh. Sure, we might fall somewhere in the 7-11 range in the East, but it is complete horseshit to say we would become the worst team in the league.

    If we lose to NJ and Washington this weekend, feel free to criticize my thinking. I won't be shocked when I don't hear from you.

    Agreed 100%.

    As for the defense improving when Bosh sits... that depends on what part of the game. Did you see that monster help-side block Bosh provided against the Griz the other night? You don't get that from Rasho or Reggie. Amir, sometimes.

    Bosh plays defense very well when he's focused on playing defense very well.

    :P

    Scott.

    No one is losing is to the wizards. I'd argue thats the worst team in NBA history.

    I like Amir getting more time, but any offense that revolves around more Hedo touches I can't support. I don't see who scores, rebounds, commands double teams, provides leadership or who you rely on when you need a basket.

    This isn't and indictment of the team, just how valuable Bosh is the raptors.

    We will see tomorrow, I hope I get proven wrong.

    Would you like to change your opinion of the Wizards today mo?

    Beating the Nuggets isn't an easy task and they did last night. If we take them for granted they'll easily walk all over us tonight during primetime on CBC. Tonight isn't going to be a cake walk. Especially now that Bosh will sit out tonight now too.

    hahahaha....

    looks like I can skip breakfast this morning since i am far too full from eating my words.

    The wiz still suck. Who is even thier best player? Mike Miller? I didn't watch the game, but I'm sure it was just a classic Denver not showing up game. Was it Melo's bday on thursday night?

    I really underestimated how bad the nets are. They really don't care. Its quite remarkable to watch. Everyone is gunning for thier own stats, they all think they can/should shoot the 3, they treat the ball like a hot potato and would rather flail around aimlessly than rotate on defense.

    Let the John Wall sweepstakes begin.
