Post Daily Raptor Dish - 03.12.09







Cold, harsh reality


Quote:
Crushed.
There may not be a better word in the English vocabulary to describe what the Atlanta Hawks did to the Raptors last night.
The 146-115 beatdown, though, at least managed to accomplish one thing that could help the Raptors going forward: It stripped bare every excuse this team might want to use for its lacklustre defensive performance .
There was not one mention of fatigue or back-to-backs. It was all brutally honest self-appraisal of what went on.
Raptors head coach Jay Triano said his team was simply "outclassed."
"Defensive effort hasn't been there for a while," Chris Bosh said. "We have to be honest with ourselves. Tonight was just a total embarrassment. We couldn't stop anybody. We haven't stopped anybody all year.
"The past few games we have been outworked in every aspect. We don't get on the ground. We don't consistently get rebounds. We give up a lot of points in the paint. No coverage is good for us. I mean it's just not a good team."


Mitchell takes in Raptors game


Quote:
He sounded especially happy to see the likes of Calderon and Chris, two players who learned under him when he was still learning the NBA coaching profession.
"Those guys mean something to me because those guys helped me get to where I was and I helped them," Mitchell said.
He also admitted that because he was still learning the ropes with Bosh and Calderon they got full throttle-Sam as opposed to the more patient and nurturing Mitchell that Andrea Bargnani got when he was a rookie.


Replay


Quote:

Mention Al Horford to a Raptors fan and the first thought that comes to mind is likely the night he put T.J. Ford in the hospital with a vicious swipe at the point guard's head as Ford went for a layup. While it's unlikely DeMar DeRozan was aware of that history, he wound up sending Horford into the stanchion on a hard foul in the first quarter. Horford got up favouring his neck and sent a glare DeRozan's way.






Feschuk: Triano criticized by players


Quote:
Triano, meanwhile, is left to figure out how to snap the Raptors out of an early season malaise. That the locker room is filled with public suggestions cannot be a good thing. In Mitchell's four-plus seasons it's difficult to remember more than the occasional moment when his strategies were openly questioned – and it was usually by Bosh, an all-star with the right to vent.
If the beef is that Triano isn't being tough enough on the defensive weak links – and a large percentage of the starting lineup pops to mind – it rings true. Even Triano's allies in the organization – and he is such an agreeable man he doesn't possess a known enemy – have quietly wondered about his ability to impose discipline on self-interested multi-millionaires. With no previous experience as a pro head coach before this, certainly he deserves time to figure out the art.


Doing the right thing a slam dunk for Raptors' Jack


Quote:
Sometimes you do things because it's the right thing to do and the right message to send and, if the circumstances aren't optimum, you suck it up and do it anyway.
The Raptors' Jarrett Jack is going home Thursday to Washington, D.C., not to rest and hang with his family, not to enjoy a full day off in a hectic stretch of a difficult NBA season for a listing team.
He's going home to help.
To show himself, to touch lives.
To hopefully make things at least momentarily better for those far less fortunate than he.
"I never saw NBA players growing up. Just being able to reach out and touch them, or them coming to my neighbourhood or my school – I never saw them," said Jack, who returns to Washington with the Raptors for their game there Friday against the Wizards.
"If I am able to change that dynamic and show kids on my side of town where I grew up, that I came from there, I have to."








Raptors embarrassed in Atlanta


Quote:
“We didn’t magically appear last on the charts defensively,” Bosh said, adding the team’s “defensive effort hasn’t been there for a while. ... I mean, tonight was just a total embarrassment.”
Bosh sat out much of the first half with foul trouble and most of the second half after the Hawks led by more than 20 points. The two points were Bosh’s low total since scoring one point at Milwaukee on Nov. 6, 2007.
Bosh’s only points came on two free throws in the third period, but he was more concerned about his team’s defensive lapses.
“We’ve got to care about it,” Bosh said. “That’s what it comes down to. Have some pride. Without that pride teams just score at will, like they did tonight.
“If we did care we wouldn’t give up 145 points.”







Hawks feast on lethargic Raptors


Quote:
The Toronto Raptors reached the nadir of their short season last night in a 146-115 road loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
It was the fifth straight loss for the Raptors (7-13), who have two more road games - in Washington tomorrow and in Chicago on Saturday - on this current road trip.
If they come home 7-15, the alarm bells will be ringing, if they are not sounding already.
For now, the record belonging to the 1997-98 Los Angeles Clippers for most points scored in a game against the Raptors (152) is safe.
The game was indeed the regulation four quarters, but only one half was necessary to determine the outcome. The Raptors had every reason to come out with passion: the losing streak, which included a disappointing loss to Washington in Toronto on Tuesday in which their usually reliable offence let them down. As well, they had been run off of the floor in their previous three games.

She's quite hot, but her boobs don't match. I know that it's like that with every woman, but she has some major hooter inconsistency.

It's really smaller than the other one. I once dated a girl like that. One of her boobs was really smaller than the other one. It was like she had a D for one and a B for the other.

I noticed because I saw one nipple and looked for the other, and then everything went downhill.
