    All I gotta say about today is, welcome to the NBA DeMar. Kobe's going to make you wish you stayed in college a few more years.

    Chris Bosh needs Andrea Bargnani to have a chance at having a good offensive performance.

    The Lakers squeeze the floor extremely well and pack the paint with size and length. That makes it very difficult for players like Bosh who rely on their face up game from the midpost to beat them. A lack of space to operate. Resulting in too many heavily contested short shots + resorting to jump shots in order to get a good at the rim, jump shots over a 7-0 Gasol with a 7-5 wingspan.

    Chris Bosh is in for a difficult night unless Bargnani can pull Bynum or Gasol away from the paint and create some space for Bosh.

    Today is the battle of the two best PF in the league, Bosh against Gasol, both pure modern PF and the best in that position in the world, no doubt about that

    DeRozan looks upset as Kobe backing off of him and daring him to take a jump shot

    Good first half. Gotta find an answer inside on defence. Bynum and Gasol are killing us. Whatever Kobe scores its a given, we gotta find answers for the Laker big men at this point.

    WOW .... I can't believe it. This team frustrates the hell out of me. We beat teams like the Mavs and Lakers, but struggle against sub-par teams. I don't understand these guys, but I'll take this win. Beating the NBA's best feels amazing.

    I'm hoping Hedo's game winning free-throws will be a turning point for him this season. Probably the two most important free throws of this NBA career tonight.

    That was one of the best games I have seen this year. The refs sucked in the last five minutes but it didn't matter. Raps win, Raps win, Raps win! Let's hope they can use this huge victory as motivation in the weeks to come! The Heat and Bobcats both play the majority of their next 15 games on the road. Things are shaping up nicely for the Raptors.

    I don't think that was called for. Hedo still needs to start playing well. Hitting a couple key FTs was nice for that game but what about all the other games where he didn't bring it? What about his recent comments where he pretty much admitted to not trying up to this point? I think you're losing sight of something important here. We're all all Raptors fans and we all want to see all the players on the team do well. I don't think there are any "Hedo haters" in Raptors' fanland, just some highly disappointed individuals. I would love to see Hedo bring it with consistency, just like any other player on the team who has been struggling. It leads to more wins and that's all that's important.
