Default Amir Johnson won the game vs the wizards.

He made an incredibly smart move in OT when gilbert arenas was driving to the bucket, in the final seconds. Amir Johnson even said that Gilbert wasn't looking at the basket and was looking at Amir trying to draw the foul, so amir stepped away and gilbert totally missed it, then leading to the raptors' victory. Go look at the play it was great... On raptors.com for the poll saying who was the underrated raptor in the victory.. and there is no Amir Johnson, yet theres a calderon/bargnani...

Btw the title doesn't make sense, its supposed to say he won the game

good point, but I think we got lucky TBH. If there were other refs on the court, I'd think they'd call the "phantom foul"

I guess he was too preoccupied stepping away from Gil that allowed them two tip-in atempts
TBH I hoped Jack would do a better job.

"He said he contemplated going for the win but instead drove around Toronto's Jarrett Jack for an open layup. "Just one of them dumb moves that I tried to do where I thought the defender was going to actually jump. Then he pulled the chair on me," Arenas said. "I was going to try to use the contact to push me back to the rim, but he didn't jump and I was off-balanced shooting the layup. I just tried to outthink him, but he [outthought] me." "

Right on. Two offensive rebounds leading to and1's down the stretch is the meaning of clutch. Not hitting shitty jumpers. Amir, Bosh, and Jack are the only guys who consistently look like they want to win.

+1, Bosh played like a leader last night. When we needed something, he provided it. He had 16 boards, 9 of them were offensive.

Sorta scary he played that well and we were only able to win in OT by 1 bucket. The Wizards weren't anything special.

the raps as a team played well and only won by a bucket. i blame it on all those stupid TO's that lead to easy dunks/lay-ups.

Yeah good point, I think we must have had around 10 more turnovers than the Wizards, with our transition D, that probably led to approx 20 wizard points.

Good game overall though keeping them at a low FG%. Jamison is Bosh's bitch.

These are little things which matter a lot in clutch time. I also agree Bosh played like a beast and was a true leader in this win.

O.T. Watch Kobe's winning 3 pointer on Miami. How does this guy do that. He is a proven champion, so is Wade. Its Lebron's turn now to show us.

that specific play didn't win the game, atleast not IMO

Bosh's ridiculous 4th quarter performance is what allowed us to stay in the game and ultimately win, he also had a key block which is important to note.

I'm pissed he didn't get the final shot in regulation he was draining everythingggg

If he can take over games like that more often then wow..

His intensity and performance was unmatched by any other Raptor


but..

WTF @ JAY TRIANO TRYNA THROW THE GAME BY NOT LETTING DEMAR PLAY IN THE 4TH AND USING JOSE/JACK DOWN THE STRETCH & IN OT

averaged 9 minutes a quarter by the end of the third, and still finished with 27 minutes played

not too mention +10 with him on the floor and he was really being aggressive.



C'MON MAAAAAAAN !!!!!!

that's really pushing it ... he had a pretty bad game, like all the bench, and his two offensive fouls in the 1st quarter were part of that stretch that allowed them back in the game.

without Bosh there was no overtime to speak of.

he missed at least two wide open shots in overtime - most of his points in the 4th were near the rim.

having the ball with hedu was the right choice, I wish he wouldn't settle for 3s though -that's just lazy.

I think Triano has to give Derozan/Beli the minutes at the SG spot and quit this JJ/Jose combo for the most part, it simply doesn't work. I think if those two get more consitent minutes (20-25) they'll fill their roles nicely. No more Jack or Wright at the 2.
