Raptors in 60 Seconds: Finding a Silver Lining
The Raptors held the #1 ranked Bulls to their lowest point total of the season. The team played well in the first half and Casey made a great decision switching to the zone. REALITY check, the Bulls took it easy on the Raptors for three quarters and then laid the SMACK DOWN in the fourth. The score doesn’t matter, only the outcome!
The Raptors first FTM was with 7 minutes left in the second half – BRUTAL. James Johnson played way above his head tonight, which was great, but the dream ended when he twisted his ankle and exited stage left before the hard work had to be done.
Most entertaining moment tonight was Eric Smith posting his pregame conversation with the Chuck Swirsky on Twitter. The two discussed the Raptors and Chuck shared his reasons for leaving Toronto. As some of you know, or speculated, he cited his marriage falling apart and his sons illness as the two key factors.
Get out the salami and cheese mama! This ball game was over before it began.
Player of the game: James Johnson.
Rotten Tomato: Jamal Magloire.
Week 9 outlook: Four wins, 9 losses, with games against Atlanta, Boston, Portland, and the Clippers. Through four weeks of the regular season the Raptors are likely looking at 4 wins and 13 losses.
…and that is the last word
