Or change it to something like Free pizza if we hold the team under 90 points. It becomes so laughable where the biggest cheer for the night isn't a dunk or a big shot but us scoring 100 points for pizza.

Random Lowry sighting:

Got to the arena early to get my JV boblehead, and Kyle was putting up three pointers in the arena. He seems to be moving rather well, though obviously this didn't require any speed or much lateral movement. I'd guess he will be back latest next Friday or Sunday.

Except it isn't always the highlight of the evening. And while Pizza Pizza isn't gourmet, if people weren't using the coupons, the promotion would die a natural death, so you have to think a lot of people want their pizza.

I think Bargnani needs to win us a few games we have no business being in before he gets any kudos. His teammates seem well aware of what's been missing so far.

Yes, on thread length alone, a good conclusions. The blindest of his detractors went on a couple of pages trying to denigrate his +20, but then largely gave up and are more interested now in where Fredericklove gets the pix of hot babes.

Anyone else seem to notice that DeMar is starting to become a threat from the corner 3?

I know the percentages don't really reflect that, but defenses are now running out on him to close that shot out. He's very confident in taking those shots.

Personally, that's a risk I'm willing to take.

Orlando is a bad team, and watching Glen Davis try to post anyone up from the 3 point line is usually hilarious.

I would have liked to see ED get a little more PT, but Amir earned his minutes, and I suppose the powers that be want to reward Bargs for bringing it more than usual.

Tad bit of disrespect... ESPN's byline for the game "Toronto turns in rare Home win over Orlando".... last I checked we were 2-3 at home... not 1-17 or something.

Yeah it is kind of an embarrassment, but the casual fans love it, so I never see it dying out. Frankly the fact that the team has sucked for so long, but still gets decent crowds is a testament to the marketing team.

The one dude was so drunk and high he was trying to rap every single time a beat came up, then he got up and started hitting on some girl and tried to start some **** with the bf while making us stand like forever for him to get to the stairs. Then he tried taking my popcorn away before almost falling down the stairs. It was the most annoying raptors game Ive been in. I think they got escorted out by security because they never came back.

Other than that the game was good. Bargnani, Derozan and Calderon did a good job. I like Kleiza shooting the corner 3s hes an asset there. Even Mcguire was putting a good effort tonight too. The offensive scheme was A LOT better this game.


Thanks for the laugh. I especially like the popcorn part. Annoying to experience, but funny to hear!

This is the Bargnani that the team needs. If he played like this every game, he'd easily have my vote of confidence. I don't know what got him so into the game today, but it has to become a routine of his. Considering the fact that he usually stinks it up on the second game of a back-to-back, I was definitely pleased with his performance.

Like others have said, I still would love to see him take shots around the elbow area, he'd defintiely be a lot more productive from there. Guys like KG, Bosh and Dirk made their career from the mid-range area. I hate seeing Bargnani take a shot one foot inside the arc. Overall, definitely a solid game from him.

DeMar definitely looked great. He had those nine rebounds to go along with his 20 points. Where is DeMar getting this desire to hit the boards from? I'm liking it. So far, with this level of play, he's definitely worth the contract we gave him.

Kleiza and Amir were great in the fourth as well. I looked at the boxscore after and noticed that JV went 2/6 from the FT line, that's definitely out of character.

Looking forward to the Philly game. They wrecked us the last time we played them so I'm definitely looking forward to see how we play them on Tuesday.
