I wouldn't have actually. I would criticize him for some of the boards he missed that went for second chance opportunities, and for disappearing a little bit down the stretch. But that collapse was more about Boston than anything any Raptor did. Boston did the same thing to OKC the game before.

This game was simply one of those really good games from Andrea that I'd wish I could see every time out. He gave the team a chance to win. That's about as good as it's going to get this season, I think. And it's so much better than when he is clearly negating so many other good things coming from the rest of the team.
