    I'm getting to the point I can't watch anymore. There's only been one game this season that the Raps have shot more foul shots than the other team. So far this season they've shot sixty less foul shots then the other teams they've played.

    What's the point in watching? Last year was the same thing. The Raps ended up with an absurd free throw disparity. And nothing was done. I mean Taylor did everything but throw Demar in the Octagon and UFC him. In that last twenty seconds there was four clear fouls that I saw. Oh well, the American team won. Yeah, who cares about the Canadian team...Ethnocentricity rules!!

    At this point I'm just looking for an entertaining game win or lose, and that was an entertaining game.

    The refs did blow that call in the end, but they really gave up a lot of easy baskets to the Bobcats on the other end in the 4th. I'm still not a fan of the Lowry/Calderon duo in the fourth, but as long as we have Jose on the team that will continue to happen.

    Meh. You're never going to get that call specially late in the game. Specially Bargnani.

    Anyway, they lost this game because of that one play when they were up 96-93. Charlotte misses a shot and Raps had a chance to nail down the hammer, but what did Lowry do? shoot a long 3pt shot with 5 secs left in the shot clock. STUPID. Bobcats get the ball back, Kemba scores on a 3pt play. Valanciunas fouled out. At that time you know it's de ja vu all over again.

    So the five or six calls that Derozan should have got shouldn't count?

    They lost this game because of the referees.

    I don't think it really matters anymore. It's going to be good for the league when OKC gets the 4th pick from us. That's all $tern cares about.

    Nope. They lost this game because of poor execution when they were up 96-93.

    Lowry ruined a beautiful game he had going down the stretch with poor decisions and what one might call hero ball. There is a fine line between stepping up and forcing the situation then making poor decisions. It is a shame though, he had such a great game going.

    I hate excuses more then anything but anyone who wants to bitch about the officiating gets a pass from me. There were some god awful calls or no calls made tonight. I missed the 1st half and caught the game from the 8 minute mark of the third.

    Was glad to see Casey stick with Dre and JV when the other team went small and he even took out Jose late for defensive purposes. Gotta give credit when it's due and I've been one if not his harshest critic but he was good tonight from what I saw with the rotations.

    Exactly. I love Lowry and i know he's a confident guy but you gotta make smart decisions specially in situations like that. He seems to always want to be the hero late in game.

    It would be unhealthy not to mention JV.

    He is going to be very good. I am cautious to say great but that is what I want to say.

    I haven't been this angry since the packers/Seahawks game.

    This wasn't debatable though. A clear blatant foul on bargs.

    Ari - "You wanna buy it?"
    Harvey - "I do, for a dollar"
