Good old Heat, you can always count on them for a win. The Raptors have absolutely OWNED them over the last few seasons, winning 8 of the last 10. Arse hit the nail on the head when he said that a win was more a signal of the continued resurgence than a feather in the cap. However, 5th is better than 6th, and the things that usually drive me crazy about Raptor games, didn’t even bother me one bit.
Tell me you aren’t still grinning from that Raptor win on Sunday. As bad as the Raptors have played, they are 2 games behind Miami for 5th seed, and are tied for 8th. Gotta love the East man. Tonight Raptors roll into South Beach and face a Miami team that has lost two games in …Continue Reading

“…Scottie Pippen defense my ass” – @RapsGurl Raptors 102, Heat 108 It wasn’t the game that Arsenalist was looking for (Joey vs Moon), in fact, both were small bit players in what was Wade vs Bosh. Not a head-to-head match-up, but we saw potential future teammates battle it out like titans. Normally I am extremely …Continue Reading
Serge Ibaka. If you haven’t heard that name before, remember this blog as the one that told you about him. On Day 1 of the Euro Camp he was the guy that people couldn’t take their eyes off of; this prompted a salivating Fran Fraschilla (European hoops guru apparently) to utter the generic hyperbolic complement …Continue Reading
