Dalembert vs. Bargnani – Maybe the defining matchup of the game. Sammy is going to have to really do a good job on the high pick and roll, making sure not to leave Bargnani open for threes. He also needs to dominate the glass in his limited minutes.

Without Calderon’s penetration and range, as well as Bosh’s scoring and glass-cleaning, Toronto often settled for mid- or long-range jumpers. Once the Rockets picked up their defensive intensity, the Raptors’ shots stopped falling and their point total stopped rising.

Energetic, knocking down shots, getting production from various spots throughout their roster. This one had all the makings of a major upset.

Things are going according to my plan. We’re only one game into the season, but the Raptors are gunning.

Bosh hosts the Cavs tonight at the ACC. Let’s NBA! My life just got 30% better with the season starting today. The Raptors host the Cavs, who just came off a 95-89 loss at the hands of the C**tics last night. Seeing Anthony Parker in a Cavs uniform was unsettling for me. For those of… Read more »
