    Default It's nice to see the Raptors destroy the Suns by 50 (even if it is preseason)

    It's preseason yes, but it's always a good sign when you destroy a team by 50 in the preseason. Looks like Kleiza, DeRosan and Weems are ready to go. How about Joey Dorsey with a double double.....the only sign that was discouraging, Bargniani 1-9 with 3 turnovers not a good start. I am a little surprised with Reggie Evans starting. He has no offensive game at all, perhaps we could start Joey Dorsey instead, he's a beast on the boards. We held the suns to under 40% shooting which is great. Very balanced scoring....I'm excited...

    Correction, it was by 51.

    I want to see how Suns rebound when we face them on the 17th.

    BTW does anyone know what channel the next game will be on? I can't see on the TSN/TSN2 schedule.

    Great game, I was disappointed with how Bargs played, but at least we destroyed them. Kleiza was just as I expected, Dorsey was Shocking, and we just proved to the league how we might not have all-stars, but we have talent and chemistry! EXCITED NOOOWWW

    Don't get too excited. We still most likely wont make the playoffs.

    Should we be concerned that bargs had only 3 points? Nice to see Kleiza drop 20.

    after that preseason game I'm pretty happy with the raptor wings, Kleisa is gonna be the star on this team and DeRosan and Weems are gonna be big, I wonder how a Calderon or Jack, De Rosan, Weems, Kleisa, Bargniani lineup would do? I'm not too worried about Bargnani he'll get his points he's just feeling the pressure this year. I really feel like we should give Joey Dorsey more of a chance. 10 rebounds in 18 minutes, I him like for sure. He and Amir had 4 offensive rebounds each, Joey Dorsey is better than Reggie Evans and should get more minutes. It was also interesting that David Anderson was +30 and tops in +/- for the night. KEEP JOEY DORSEY!!

    www.nba.com/raptors/schedule says we have a game on the 10th and 12th :/

    edit: NVM they updated it. I guess I'll have to find a stream. I don't have NBATV Canada.

    I'm not about to get excited with just one game. I have said this before and I'll say this again, KEEP JOEY DORSEY!!! Forget Damps! I think that the offensive "rust" was very evident in the first 2 quarters. Also, for a guy that spent playing in the summer for Italy, Bargs looks out of sorts (I know, I'm one of those critical guys when it comes to Bargs). As predicted as well, Kleiza will be a number one or even two on offense for this team.

    If I'm the starting line-up, I should be very concerned as well. Rather than Triano focusing on individual "battles" for positions, he's actually using a starting line-up vs. bench format. Clearly the bench clearly out-hustled the starting five outside of Kleiza.

    Dorsey is an animal.

    Dude the Hedo booing was priceless, letting him know he ain't welcome ANYWHERE in Canada, and that was just a preview, this guy is going to get his ass wooped in Toronto I guarantee you that.

    i very much liked the defensive rotation for the most part but in the first quarter they let up some easy baskets. I also liked the new offensive sets, the one play where calderon passed it to bargs at the top of the 3 pt line the ran down to set a screen for Kleiza, who popped up for a nice easy open jump was beautiful to watch. The double screen for weems is nice too but they got to spread the court more when they do it. All and all I seen alot of good things.

    anyone notice Wright guarding the point guard in the 4th quarter? He has really long arms!

    Nothing to get too excited about as the Suns were coming off of a game the day before plus the Suns aren't that good this year- as is. Still it's better than losing by 51 points. I think that the best Raptor units will be sans Bargnani in 2010-11. Funny thing about the Hedo booing is that when he scored they would cheer (for the Suns).

    unfortunately this is not a good year to tank -- with a lockout looming, probably most top players would stay one extra year in college rather than just sit around, getting out of shape and not getting paid for the 2011-12 season.
