The Nets tried to defend Bosh by either denying the ball, staying with his first move, or double-teaming on the catch to force a pass. Boone admitted that if Bosh gets that first step, he’s among the best in the league at finishing the play. And even when Bosh struggles, he remains capable of reeling off a stretch that reveals the reasons he’s one of the top three potential free agents this offseason.
That was a tough loss to Indiana, but after beating them two nights before, and winning the previous 5, I can live with it. We have to keep things in perspective, the Raptors are a team still trying to find their way, things could be worse … we could lose to the Nets tonight. Tonights game against the Nets (who are 1-23 on the road) couldn’t have come at a better time.

Trailing the season series 2-1, the Raptors head into Garden State hoping to tie things up and regain some pride that VC & Co. stole when they did this: I hate the Nets, dating back to Babcock… Read more »
First off, a big shout out to all the members of the Raptors Republic. Its great to be on board and I look forward to giving a voice to angry Raptors’ fans everywhere- each and every week! For starters, I’d like to revisit a couple of ideas that I have been writing about for the… Read more »
I listened to the Cleveland commentators the whole game (I do this often now since I find the it to be comedic gold). Some things that were said:
- WeNorth (commenting on the WeTheNorth campaign, apparently the can't read the giant letters on the giant banners in their own stadium properly) - One announcer forgot DeRozan's name, called him what's his name as he went to the free throw line - Commentators were saying the Cavs should start hard fouling Lou, "put him on his britches".
