Raptors pummel the winless Jazz

image (4)

This was one of the more boring games of the season, even if it was with the Raptors on the other side of the stick destroying the Jazz 115-91. The Jazz looked incoherent and disoriented. It doesn’t help that this was their 4th game in 5 nights, so the messiness was understandable, but no-less ugly. Though that’s not to take ... Read More »

Hansborough leads Raptors past Celtics

nba_a_green_gb1_576x324

The first quarter was all Raptors for the first couple of minutes. Valanciunas scored the game’s first six points while the Celtics were scoreless for the first four minutes. However the Raptors were getting sloppy with the ball turning it over eight times. The Raptors shot the ball well in the first half, 59.4% as opposed to the Celtics 38.1%, ... Read More »

Alan Anderson tribute, kinda

He made no fans here in Toronto with his patented and most favorite move “shoot with a hand in your face”. He hoisted a lot of shots and did a poor job of converting on them shooting at .383%. Although I can’t say his time was entirely uneventful. He had some big games, seemed to always go off against New ... Read More »

For the seven years he has been on the Raptors, Bargnani has been a constant disappointment. He was picked first overall and was touted to be the next Dirk Nowitzki. And some thought he may have reached that level. He came nowhere near close. He had showed some flashes of potential, particularly during a span of 13 games in the ... Read More »

Anthony Bennett made the record books by becoming the first Canadian to get selected 1st overall that made waves throughout the basketball community, and not just due to the country he was representing. Every year a team ... Read More »

Raptors out-run by the Celtics

That was brutal to watch. What was worse than the Raptors getting blown out was the events that led to it. The Celtics in the third quarter couldn’t be touched without a whistle getting blown. By the end of the third the Celtics went to the line 30 times with Sebastian Telfair getting ejected for arguing with the referees. Before ... Read More »

Raptors stumble against the Wizards

If you’re among the fortunate few that survived watching this game and retaining your sanity, I applaud you. That was not easy to the eyes and I may have gotten a little blind. The Raptors in their race to make the playoffs had one of the worst team performances this fan has ever seen in franchise history. Ever. No lie, ... Read More »

Raptors hoping to bounce back against Indiana

The last time the Pacers and Raptors met it was an ugly game. The Raptors came out with a victory but scored only 5 points in the fourth quarter, edging out the home team by a mere 2 points. Things are bound to be different as both teams are far different since their last meeting. Jose Calderon – who recorded ... Read More »

Raptors look to win against the Rondo-less Celtics

The Boston Celtics will be without their all star Rajon Rondo, but they’re not to be underestimated as they’re on a four game winning streak with wins against the Heat and Clippers. On that token, despite a blowout win earlier in the season, the Celtics are sizing the Raptors up to be a challenge. “When you add a talent like ... Read More »
