James Johnson is taking the Raps to the promised land! ha, not quite but good start nonetheless. No one can deny his size and physicality - I like it. Still wish we had the first round pick and him! 5 rebs, 3 blks, 6 FTA made 5, highlight dunk.
Bargnani and DD had 48 points between them. More impressive is the 8 assits between them - 4 each. More impressive again, 18/19 FT between them.
Amir was active as usual. Efficient game - 8 for 8, 3 blocks, 2 steals!
Jose played very well. Smart shots, 17dimes, 3 stls. Rose manhandled him late though getting to the rim at will. The only consolation for Jose is he does that to most PG's in the league.
I have to give Weems credit. Pretty good game offensively and played good possession vs. Rose at the end - still a bench player.
Why did Davis only play 12 minutes? 5 rebs, 1 stl, 1 blk, 3 for 4.... oh, 5 fouls, nevermind.
Bayless probably played his worst game as a Raptor, IMO. Enough said on him. Hopefully he bounces back.
The biggest shock of the night: Andrea played both sides of the ball! He held his own on D. I think I actually saw him hedging on screens. Is this a one-night only show or is it to be continued?
