    Great team effort this afternoon, one for the vault. Personally I thought Barbosa did an exceptional job coming in, pushing the tempo, and playing the point. He also hid some of Demar's offensive deficiencies early in the game. In order for the Raptors to continue their stride. They need better production from Weems and DeRozan.

    On a side note, since early this week, Bargnani has emerged as the focal point of this team. And boy has he done a great job. I'm glad we broke the eight game losing streak against Boston dating back to 2007. I'm sticking to my belief is that this Raptors squad is better than last years squad. It seems that with Bosh as our main option it caused the roster to become one dimensional. Therefore making it easier for other teams to know our game plan.

    Now we're playing like a team... AND I LOVE IT!
    Lets keep the streak alive... GO RAPTORS GO!!

    Great team effort. Bargnani is definately earning his nomination to the all-star game ballot. I thought KG would bully him but it just goes to show you Bargs has the tools and talent to play up the competition. He's consistently doing well so far. As for Amir, and all the haters out there on him, I wouldn't classify them as "haters". Moreso, it just goes to show you that Amir, when playing smart and not getting too many ticky-tack fouls, he can alter the game. He plays so aggressive that he can't help but get those fouls.

    The refs... though I thought they were an experienced bunched showed some questionable calls on both teams. Ah well, they do have one of the hardest jobs in professional sports, along with the Umps and Refs of the other sports league.

    GO RAPS GO!

    Wtf is this, we need to be tanking; we're only a game back from the 8th seed.

    That said, this was a glorious win. It doesn't matter whether they have Rondo out or not, they're still far more talented then we are.

    Bargs is looking like he's starting to grow a bit more, this must be one of his more consistent stretches of play. Bosh always pussied out against the Celtics, but today Bargs took it right at KG. He looked godly at times.

    What the hell does Amir need to do to get more PT? If he played more in the 3rd, that 17-3 Boston run would've been greatly lessened at the very least. They were completely ignoring Reggie as an offensive threat out there.

    DD was disappointing today, he's still inconsistent. I thought he'd be able to run circles around Jesus today. Can we get English to work with him on his shot too...?

    Most young teams get a first round exit the first time in the playoffs, can you say Thunder last season.

    If this were an older team I might agree with you.

    However it is a young team so they need to get that playoff experience, the sooner the better, no matter what the outcome the first time through.

    BC is committed to building around the young guys that is obvious.

    Experience is invaluable in making athletes better especially when they are young.

    Amir's playing time is fine for now.

    He still has to learn to play good defense more consistently without fouling.

    Triano now has him finishing games which is a big step up.

    Patience we shall see what happens

    Way to early to speculate on the 2011 draft.

    For example the Bruins have a guy who if he continues to develop he could become one of if not the best players in college basketball this season and I don't mean Reeves Nelson who will probably be a first round pick.

    Tyler Honeycutt has the ability to become the best player in the 2011 draft.

    He can do it all now that he has added an outside shot to his arsenal including play tough defense

    Right now he is averaging 16 PPG, 8 RPG and 3 + APG. He is a straight up SF at about 6'8"

    To put his assists in perspective Russell Westbrook averaged only 4 APG in his last season at UCLA.

    So for a SF to get 3 + APG in the Howland system which is pretty off the charts.

    Great game but Calderon's defence was tremendously exposed by Robinson. The difference this year it seems that the team can cope albeit not much when perimeter defense collapses as a result of Jose's inability to guard quicker guards. I know that to a certain extent, it's a bit overblown (Derek Fisher is one of the worst at that position and the Lakers are the defending champs). The key to continue their success is truly working together as a team. Gone are the big egos (see Jack, Hedo and Bosh), the Euro vs. the American factions of the team.

    If BC can parlay Peja into something come trade deadline then he's on track to follow Presti and what he's done in OKC. Young guys, fast guys, cheap guys. Also, this PG tandem will continue to chug along with Bayless running alongside Barbosa while Calderon runs along with Weems and DD. Speed kills. Even if we don't make the playoffs, this is the most "fun to watch" Raps team ever.

    Living in Los Angeles and being a Bruins alumnus, sort of if you count their evening Extension program from which I have an advanced degree, I try and watch all the Bruins mens basketball games and as many of their other sports teams as I can catch on TV.

    Best part of the game was Amir elbowing Garnett in the chin, too bad he didnt connect any harder... Nice to see somebody standing up forthemselves and not running away like bosh would have done.

    I'm really getting past Bosh now. Not much hate for the guy, more grateful. The games this season are awesome to watch (minus Washington and I didn't catch most of the west coast games - just highlights and write ups). Having him here this season would have been awful to watch (give him the ball, hold, hold, hold, jump shot) - especially considering he woudl have been on a max deal.

    KG got a solid elbow the to the top his head in their last game vs the Thunder. He had knot up there about the size of a big plum

    It seems that the players around the league have had enough of his trash talking sheet, after the CV thing.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see him continue to get some good pain laid on him going forward around the whole league.

    +1 again.

    It would seem word is getting around that his bark is far worse than his bite. In fact, if you smack him back he essentially turtles.

    Bargnani became the focal point of the team the minute Rupaul left. Now he is starting to silence his critics but of course unless he gets 15 rebounds a game all those haters/losers will never be satisfied...

    This team is continuing to prove that they can hang and even beat the big boys. Colangelo and Triano are building a winning organization and true team mentality. Slowly but surely the Raps will start to silence the critics that wrote this team off after Rupaul decided to leave and be Lebron and Wade's bitch. The new and brighter Era has begun and Bryan still has the TPE and draft picks next year plus expirings. Winning now is the only thing that matters...
