Raptors beat Pistons (again)

By

Raptors 102, Pistons 95 – Boxscore The first 4 game winning streak of this season was a hard fought one against the Pistons. All things considered it was a quality win. You can pick at nuances of the game, which I will, but you have to be happy with the result, which I am. It… Read more »

Raptors Roll Call Dec 27 vs Pistons

By

Filling in for the vacationing AltRaps and breast-feeding Arsenalist, it’s the “We swept a season series from a good team”edition. Banks – Bynum crossed him over so bad, no one wanted to sit with him on the bench. Bargnani – Hit a few timely shots, a timely block and a few boards. Had some lapses… Read more »

Gameday: Raptors vs Pistons – Dec. 27/09

By

There is a lot riding on this game. The Raptors are barely in 6th place in the East, they are on a 3 winning streak, and can sweep the season series with the Pistons if they have another solid showing. They were able to solidify the Nets win with follow up victories over the Hornets… Read more »

Raptors Roll Call Dec 23 vs Pistons

By

Once again, filling in for the vacationing AltRaps, it’s the “C’mon, it’s a back-to-back…for the other team” edition. Banks – The positive press got to his head. Came in and promptly turned it over twice, once on a childish double-dribble. Somebody check with Doug Smith and see if he still considers him a “trade asset”…. Read more »

RR Ratings – Nov 4 vs DET

By

They started it… Bosh: 7 Kept that offense chugging along with his 20 FT attempts. Hardly a fluid or dominant performance but got his nose dirty and didn’t let his head hang when he got beat on defense. His play slowed this game down and allowed the Raps to catch their breath. Bargnani: 8 Caught… Read more »

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

The Pistons are tired and shorthanded

By

The Pistons are in the same tier as the Raptors and are one of the teams that will try to make a playoff push at our expense. How do I know? Their blogger predicts 44 wins. They’re nothing like the feared teams of the mid-2000’s when Chauncey Billups, Rasheed Wallace and a fierce Ben Wallace… Read more »

50 = Bad

Even a half-french-half-nelson can’t stop CB4. It’s been a minute, but I’m back. Sadly, not a whole lot changed while I was gone.. The fortunes of this team have remained the same. Regardless of how we got here, the fact of the matter is that this team is worse off right now then when BryCo… Read more »
