It shows the state of this board when after a win, the post game thread contains in the headline that the coach sucked. Give us a freaking break.

Given the days of idiotic bi-polar discussions after a loss, a little celebration after a win would be nice.

You are only the 100th post after a solid road win and its been 100 minutes since the game ended.

But if we'd lost there would be 300 posts and counting.....

Just saying. :nod:

I hated how Chuck and Leo kept on saying "Feed Bosh the ball" in the 4th quarter.

The guy was tired. Give him a break and pass the goddamn ball.

Ugly win.. but we'll take it..

Raptors showed a lack of poise and concentration against a young Knicks bench, it was just embarrassing.. This game should have been over in the first quarter, we had numerous chances the Knicks kept giving to us, but we failed to capitalize... I can't believe it got so close in the end..

The old Raps would have had a rested Jose off the bench in the second to increase the lead quickly and blow them out, and if they came back TJ would take over in the fourth with his driving of the lane and passing it out... Get well soon TJ...

Raps were 5.5 favs tonight. Took that line after not going with them against Philly. :-? I think we beat Portland Sunday. Thinking they'll set the line around -2.5 for the Raps. Seems reasonable.

Not sure if anyone else caught this but when the Raps were up 17 in the 4th, did anyone here the fans start chanting "Lets Go Raptors"?? I could kinda hear it. Not sure if it was Raps fans chanting it or if Knicks fans turned against there own team or if it was a combo of both but thats gold either way.

Andrea spent his time on the bench cuz ref did not like what he was doing.

Zach and Eddie spent their time on the bench cuz coach did not like what they were doing. :P

Those two just sucked at the beginning, plus they couldn't keep up with Jose or our bigs on pick and rolls... They were struggling matching up with us, although its strange why Curry didn't play that much as we had no answer for him inside either...Isiah made a smart move going small and quick with his young bench to match up with us... only they weren't good enough to actually beat our starters..

I too have seen this phenomenon. Board is full of sadists that get pleasure in a lost so they can write 300 word essays why Bargs is a bust.

I'd be so pissed if I was a Knicks fan. Marbury, Curry, Randolf, Robinson, Crawford, Jones. Having to consistently was those guys play would be heart breaking. And the reffing sucked big time.

Great game CB.

My point is that if this team can't play the Knicks with a 17 point lead without Bosh then there are so many more serious problems.

What happened in San Antonio? Bosh sat out the entire 4th quarter. That same strategy should have been employed again today. Take him out early 4th quarter and wait, lead dwindles down to 12, 11, throw him back in fresh and that sequence I just showed you doesn't happen.

I'm not a Smitch-hater. I don't want to be interpreted as that, I just thought he mis-managed his team and had the team blown the lead, Sam would be in some serious trouble.


Imagine if Smitch takes out Bosh and NY comes back to win. This board would go nuts. I remember thinking it would be nice to sit Bosh but he seemed to be integral for the victory.

Well for one, they couldn't keep up with Chris to save their lives and also the fact that we trapped both of them each time they got the ball played to their weakness (Randolph is a black hole and rarely ever passes back to the guard and we all know about Curry).

The Raptors over helping team defense was actually helpful against those two and the reason we went on an early run.
