Grey Cup Sunday in Canada and Steve Nash the greatest basketball player in the history of this country pays his only visit to Canada of the 09/10 season. While the Raptors have had their heart questioned after Bosh took a shot below the belt in Boston and his team showed little response. People are fired up in the T-Dot for some of the wrong reasons. Bosh was less than happy with his teams response he said he is sick of talking about toughness and it is time to just do it like the nike slogan goes.
The C....to the B and back to the C
I am guessing you mean the Suns and if that is the case a way to stop Kobe if they hope to get to the finals in general terms play like they did in Boston and find a way to get key stops.
Do you folks think the players not stepping up for Bosh is a bad sign for re-signing CB4? I sure do but what do you think?
Both teams have their regular starting 5's for this game today at the ACC.
The Raps try to avoid a coincidence store record of 7-11 and that will not be easy facing a Suns team that is 13-3 that leads the Pacific Division
Let's here from you folks as we are about 15 minutes from tip time in the T-Dot.
Get tougher and understand that outscoring teams on the road is not as easy to do. Raps may never be a great defensive team but they need to find a way to get key stops and not let offensive performance effect the defensive one.
I liked hearing Antonie Wright come out and say this team can not let there star player basically get punked and do nothing. It is like that scene in the movie Rocky...time to look in that mirror and bring it for the Raps.
The Raps need to stop making excuses and just go out and play hard and do the things they are talking about.
In the last match up with the Suns...Amare had 30 for the Suns and he was a huge factor in that game for the Suns.
Raptors played one of their better games of the season in that loss to the Suns of late they have just reached points in games where they just seem to have quit.
That may seem a bit harsh but if you watched the game vs Bobcats and Celtics can you really disagree?
Today might not be as much about the win or loss for Toronto as much as it is about how they play.
Steve Nash is back to playing like the 2 time MVP he is and forget what it says on his birth certificate he is flat out ballin as the kids like to say.
Both point guards will have to play well today for Raps to have any chance.
Gut check time for the Raptors is here. Do you want to be a playoff team? Do you want to have CB4 back next year? If you do time to start showing it.
Hedo has been a major disappointment as well for most Raps fans. This is not the guy that was key for the Magic in a run to the finals.
time for him to start earning that 53 million.
They have to have more balance effort in all phases of the game.
Raps have changed faces but still have not found a way to escape that soft tag that they have around the NBA.
Starting Line-up time at the ACC.
This should be fun and entertaining if it was anything like the last time these teams hooked up.
My fingers should get a workout today.
Nash, Richardson ,Frye, Hill, and Stoudemire the starting 5 for the visiting Suns.
The heck with running to the guy down run at the guy that put him there.
Transition D is going to be tested to the max today vs the Suns.
They have not had consistent effort and we did mention the 3rd as being one of those points they slide.
Raps win it wearing the home whites.
Demar DeRozan misses a runner in that lane.
J-Rich a 3 ball and this is not a good start.
Bargnani hits a 3 to answer and it is 3-3.
