Down goes Boston! Down goes Boston!

Toronto Raptors 114, Boston Celtics 112 What a game! The Raptors take out Boston in a clutch and tense affair which put a premium on the proverbial ice in the veins. Jose Calderon’s two clutch free throws followed by a decisive drive to the rim for a three point-play put the Raptors up by two.   …Continue Reading


Note to Colangelo: F**k pride!

First of all, I have to give props to Raps Fan for actually doing a video podcast and revealing his mug on the internet. See, I could never do that, I was stepped on as a child and have the disfigurements to prove it. You may hear my high-pitch voice in the podcasts but my   …Continue Reading


The Philly loss means we wasted the entire week, so much for the easy schedule

Toronto Raptors 95, Philadelphia 76ers 99 As you finished watching this game the taste in your mouth was probably the Raptors’ fightback falling just short, but it shouldn’t be. It should be the miserable third quarter where we got outscored 34-16 and didn’t play a lick of defense or showed any intensity. Philly on the   …Continue Reading


Al Horford had no malicious intent, Anthony Johnson did

Atlanta Hawks 78, Toronto Raptors 89 If you’re going to be a big enough coward to hit a man on the head while he’s got his back towards you, the least you could do is not feign your innocence and openly acknowledge conflict. Instead Anthony Johnson pretended he had nothing to do with Jose Calderon   …Continue Reading


Raptors concede to Pistons in 3rd quarter…kinda…except Bosh came back in the 4th….but not Calderon, Parker or Delfino…WTF?

Toronto Raptors 89, Detroit Pistons 103 Did the Raptors just concede this game in the third quarter after the lead ballooned to 16? Fine, I can convince myself to live with that even though a 16 point lead isn’t exactly a mountain to overcome, but what gets me is the starters remaining on the bench   …Continue Reading


Bottom Line: When the Raptors need to score, they can’t. Same for rebounding.

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

Cleveland Cavaliers 93, Toronto Raptors 90 Typical Raptors. Do everything right early and then slowly but surely screw everything by reverting to your true form of a team that’s lost on offense and plays shoddy defense. There shouldn’t be any surprise that we blew a 20 point lead at home because we’re a team that   …Continue Reading


Chris Paul pulls a John Starks as Raps end swing at 3-4, time to come home and beat Detroit

Toronto Raptors 97, New Orleans Hornets 92 When I was shooting for a 3-4 road trip I did not expect the scalps to come in San Antonio or New Orleans. Like most I thought we’d pick up wins in Los Angeles, Seattle and maybe one of Portland or Houston, but these are the Raptors and   …Continue Reading


Phoenix West beats Phoenix East (kinda, sorta, not really)

Toronto Raptors 103, Phoenix Suns 122 I can deal with this loss because I wasn’t expecting us to win, if we can’t beat Seattle we definitely won’t be able to beat Phoenix the day after. That would be like finishing Drake’s Fortune on the Hard level right after you got your ass handed to you   …Continue Reading


Un-fucking-believable!

Toronto Raptors 115, Seattle Sonics We lose the one fucking game that everybody thought we could win on this roadtrip. The Sonics who are 12 games under .500 and one of the worst teams in the NBA look like the ’85-86 Boston Celtics and punish the Raptors for a 123-115 win. Yeah, that’s right, they   …Continue Reading


A 7 point 4th quarter lead on the road needs to be valiantly protected, not Darrick Martinized!

Toronto Raptors 96, Portland Trailblazers 101 This one hurt real bad. It hurt bad because we had a chance to win it and should have won it. We shot ourselves in the foot by playing bad fourth quarter defense and not putting our best players on the court at the right time. The momentum of   …Continue Reading
