Smith Says:
- “A balanced attack … and a BIG win considering the victories for Charlotte and Milwaukee tonight as well.”

    I think that’s what you call a character win:
    1/ 4 game streak snapped
    2/ Bosh stomach struggles
    3/ Turk ankle angst
    4/ Barg head hacked
    5/ Calderone elbow ache

    And McGrady beakin’ off where he doesn’t need to wade in.

    A character win.

    I see the Celts beat up on th 76ers tonight as well. They won’t be in a good mood for the Raps. Let’s get healthy and hope CB4 just caught the same 24 hour bug off Bargnani.

    How Time Flies…

    Sonny Weems said that McGrady is, “…getting kind of old.”
    Doesn’t it seem like yesterday that he was a 19 year old Raptor who was going to be the next Vince Carter?

    I found every time us Raptors fans barely started to get loud and into the game Mike D’Antoni would call a timeout which was SUPER annoying. I find most coaches wait a bit longer, but he was just killing the atmosphere right before we were able to get really loud. I think it was a smart move by him though since the crowd is known as the sixth man.
