Totally the right thing to do. Now if only the media could get it right with the glory the mentally ill shooters crave when shooting up movie theaters and elementary schools. Their faces are plastered all over the news and every household knows their name. Makes me rage to no end.

good 3rd and good finish to this game.

Great game, and solid performance from DD, Gay, Lowry, Jonas (for his D and managing to piss off Chandler), AA needs to understand that there are players superior to him on the pecking order in this team and stop looking off players like Gay and Demar to hoist up a contested shot. The way he chucks game in and game out, he's bound to have one hot shooting night like our last game vs the Grizz but it doesn't make up for all the countless horrid shooting nights he follows up with.

Let's go Raptors. I doubt they will go far in the play offs, but it gives them the experience they need. Next year they will be even stronger. I am a Toronto resident (so obviously I got love for the Raptors) but a Heat fan. It's gonna be hard but I want me Heat to win over raps, but I defiantly want Raptors to make the finals next year.

I went to the game and it was probably the best game I've been to. The other games I've been to with electric atmosphere we always end up losing. It was amazing really.

There was quite a bit of Knicks fans. Maybe 15-20%.
In my section there were so many of them Like a good 40+. All drunk and wearing Knicks colours. One guy got so drunk the police had to remove him. Later in the game the Knicks fans started chanting "Raptors suck" and were told to stop by the attendant. Other fans also yelled at them to stop and that it wasn't allowed.

It was as packed as I've seen the ACC. Maybe more so than with Heat or Lakers games. The first time AB was introduced it was out of a timeout and it wasn't announced over the PA. Everyone was disappointed as we wanted to boo him. However as soon as he touched the ball the boos started. He was pretty awful all game even by his standards. You could hear fans picking away at his play and defense. At his stat line. They were excited when he finally got his first"1" which was a foul. Everything else read 0 and he really didn't do anything out there. Not fighting for position and rebounds. Not doing much of offense besides hanging around the 3 pt line either.

In the 3rd he played again and we all booed. I was surprised at how unanimous it was. The vast majority were booing him. Melo was good but Casey's rotations really baffled me. AA and Fields were guarding Melo most of the time instead of Gay. Not sure why especially since it wasn't like Rudy was in foul trouble. Also when the Knicks went on the run in the 4th, I'm not sure why Lowry wasn't brought in till the 6 min mark?

The end was really fun. The crowd was so loud. Everyone on their feet and cheering so much. Great game! Was my B'day present too!

Maybe the fans at ACC should cheer AB. Might actually get some production out of him.

Ladies and Gentleman, the epitome of bandwagoning. Lives in Toronto and gave up on the Raptors to cheer for both the Heat and the Lakers. Usually bandwagoners pick one or the other, this guy managed to get both, AND claim loyalty to the hometown team as soon as they've shown signs of improvement.

We have a lot of OKC fans here as well.

I have to open my Lowry bobblehead and put him next to my Val, Andrea and Demar figures.

The worst part is they're all awful commercials, most notably the GSP poker one (aka a d-bags wet dream). But I digress, watching Rudy take the game over was great to see, great win let's keep it moving.

Just to remind ur fellas, next 2 games against the Knicks will be back2back nights, I will predicting that realgm will crash on both days due to overload.

It will be exciting to see both teams go at it

I'm going for total no of pages for each game thread over 250

I didn't watch the game, only some highlights. I noticed DeMar was on the bench for almost 70% of the 2nd quarter. Why did Casey bench him?

I hope Telfair can get Bargs going because if he can get it going we will be a lot better off , and stop the booing it is not helpful at all to our team . If you must boo him after he is traded not before .

Great win despite Dwayne Casey's best efforts to throw the game
