Raptors implode in Indiana

Raptors 101, Pacers 105 – Box I’m not even surprised the Raptors blew that lead, not in the least. If you expected them to sustain a 23 point lead for a whole half, you have them confused with a team with a killer instinct. They had Indiana at their mercy in the first half and… Read more »


A blowout without a blowout feel

Calderon’s play was instrumental in getting the Raptors off to a great start. Pacers 112, Raptors 123 – Box The trend of blowing big leads is becoming the norm. Last night we were able to hold off Indiana by executing brilliantly down the stretch, but this cannot possibly be a sustainable method for winning games…. Read more »


Podcast: Weekly Review/Preview

Not a good week for the club, we got clobbered in Denver and then put up little resistance against the Jazz with the defense going from bad to worse. We gave up 108.25 points per game and our league-worst defensive rating went further down a couple notches to 116.4. Thankfully Miami came to town and… Read more »

Pacers Exact Terrible Vengeance

Anthony, try to put those arms up. Raptors 101, Pacers 130 If there was a mercy rule in the NBA it would’ve been fit to invoke here. The Pacers laid down a beating to remember on the Raptors and unlike the last time we were in Indiana, there was no comeback to feel good about…. Read more »


Let’s wait till the 4th quarter to play hard

I’m thinking of buying a Raptors jersey and putting Granger 33 on it. Raptors 104, Pacers 111 Part of me didn’t even want the Raptors to make that run in the fourth because it doesn’t mean a thing. We got outplayed for three quarters and were down 24 when the Pacers decided to bring out… Read more »


A nervy win in Indiana

Toronto Raptors 102, Indiana Pacers 98 Sometimes a win can overshadow many things that went wrong in a game and such was the case last night. This was a little too close to being a L for one’s liking. The Pacers sans Jermain O’Neal and Jamal Tinsley frustrated the Raptors by putting up a fight… Read more »

Josh Smith, Amir Johnson


Toronto Raptors 104, Indiana Pacers 93 I’ll say little about the game because if you saw it you know it was a gutsy effort on the road that speaks volumes about the potential for this club. If you didn’t see it, maybe NBA.com can help you out. Down 17 in the third quarter this had… Read more »
