Morning Linkage – Oct 19/09

Toronto Star – Raptors’ Jay Triano sees good in the bad It may seem entirely counter-intuitive to imagine Jay Triano would be pleased with what’s transpired with the Raptors of late but coaches are an odd lot and sometimes they don’t really think like regular folk. So in the wake of a 101-82 pasting at… Read more »

It’s only pre-season I tell myself

By

Turkoglu’s play was one of the few bright spots on a very dismal afternoon. C**tics 101, Raptors 82 – Box C’mon man, try to stay positive, it’s only pre-season. That’s what I was telling myself after the game, to not lose faith so early and give Triano a chance, a chance at a full training… Read more »

C**tics preview + Triano, Calderon on the offense

By

I know pre-season’s all about preparation and practice but there’s something different about tonight’s game against Boston. Or at least there should be. They’re playing their Big Three 20-23 minutes a game so far this pre-season which means there’s a good chance we’ll see a competitive first quarter with the “real” lineup for both teams,… Read more »

Raptors vs Bobcats – It’s Time…

By

It’s time to step up and be men. It’s time to show some pride. It’s time for heart and character to shine through. Dramatic I know, but the chips are down, and these are the moments that separate the men from the boys. When everyone is healthy and the shots are falling, it is easy… Read more »

Down goes Boston! Down goes Boston!

By

Toronto Raptors 114, Boston Celtics 112 What a game! The Raptors take out Boston in a clutch and tense affair which put a premium on the proverbial ice in the veins. Jose Calderon’s two clutch free throws followed by a decisive drive to the rim for a three point-play put the Raptors up by two…. Read more »
