Gameday: Raptors vs Cavaliers – Jan. 19/10

By

The Raptors are back on a roll after beating both the Knicks and the Mavericks in convincing fashion on the weekend. Tonight they are in Cleveland on the first night of a back-to-back against the Mavs. I always thought that the win we had over the Cavs was a disservice to this team because it… Read more »

Gameday: Raptors vs Magic – Nov. 1/09

By

Wow, Friday against the Grizz didn’t work out at all. The Raptors looked likeā€¦the Raptors. They were getting burned from the perimeter, interior defense was suspect, team rebounding was non-existent, they weren’t sharing the ball, and weren’t hitting their shots. Perfect storm. Today, the Magic roll into town, and the unspoken rivalry is born again.

Andrea, are you for real?

Son, what did I say about bringing that garbage in here? Cavaliers 91, Raptors 101 – Box Expectations are still in check but that felt good. After the pre-season we had and all that talk of fatigue, chemistry, nine new players and what not, it was good to get our first quality win out of… Read more »

I was half wrong about Philly at the start of the year; I pegged them for a 50 win team ahead of… Read more »

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

What did you expect?

Cavaliers 93, Raptors 76 As unlikely as a playoff spot is, I’m still looking forward to this bunch at least try and make a push to prove that they’re more than a collection of overrated misfits and underachievers. The trade has breathed a little purpose into the… Read more »

When the King is in the House, OMG, Danger!

By

In awe of the King. Cavs 101, Raptors 83 Was I the only one embarrassed when the Raptors started the game showing zone? Or when Lebron dunked twice against a zone defense? Or when Szczerbiak hit 2 of his first 3 treys (the guy doesn’t jump, and it’s not like he’s a threat to drive… Read more »

Raptors take out frustration on Miami

By

Miami Heat 54, Toronto Raptors 96 This game was not a barometer to measure how effective the Raptors are but merely a simple test to check whether the Raptors are still interested in playing basketball this season. Turns out they are. At some point in this game you had to feel sorry for the Miami… Read more »
