Raptors Daily Raptor Dish - 12.04.11








Raptors in ping-pong ball hunt


Quote:
If the season ended tonight, the Raptors would have a 15.6% of earning the top pick in the NBA draft this June and that’s as good a shot as the Raptors are going to have.
And really, what else is there to concern oneself with now.
The Celtics did the Raptors a huge favour walking into Washington and laying down just enough that the Wizards squeaked out a win in overtime.
That result combined with the Raptors’ 93-86 loss in Milwaukee assures the Raps of at worst — or best depending on your point of view — finishing in a tie for third worst record in the NBA.
If the Raptors finish alone in third worst, they would have a 156 ping-pong balls in the drum of the 1,000 total. If they finish tied, they would get the average of the total chances of the third- and fourth-place teams combined which would work out to 137 chances of the 1,000 ping-pong balls.
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers will fight it out for the worst and next-to-worst record with the worst record earning that team a 25% shot at the first pick.
The only combination that will see the Raptors tie for third worst record on Wednesday is a Raptors win over Miami and a Washington loss to Cleveland. Any other combination leaves the Raptors with 156 ping-pong balls.






Raptors serve up some unsavoury fare in loss to Bucks


Quote:
With so many regulars out of the picture, there were statistical oddities on the boxscore. Dorsey, the little-used forward, pulled down a career-high 20 rebounds, becoming just the seventh Raptor in history to pull down that many in a game. “Little Reggie,” as DeRozan dubbed Dorsey in honour of the resident rebounding machine Evans, also managed to carve out a career-high 12 field-goal attempts. On the upside, he never let a shot go from outside the paint. On the downside, he missed 9 of 12 from in tight, which made his tally of 10 offensive boards slightly less impressive
“I feel like if I just made 6 for 12, we’d have been in the game,” Dorsey said, shaking his head in self-disgust. “I try not to be so down on myself. DeMar keeps telling me, ‘You put too much pressure on yourself. Just go out there and play.’ But like I told him, ‘I’ve got to prove myself.’ I haven’t proved myself yet.”
As Monday’s debacle wound down, a kid sitting at courtside, who had dodged the game’s bevy of ill-advised passes and was in the mood for more one-on-one contact with an NBAer than most of the professional defenders, hollered over to Dorsey, who was sitting on the Raptors bench.
“Hey, Joey, can I have your shoes?” the kid said. And when Dorsey shook his head no, the kid countered with a decent point: “You only have one game left. A home game.”
But Dorsey was not untying his Kobe Bryant-model Nikes: “I need ’em,” the Raptor said. Still, as the buzzer sounded and Dorsey and his teammates headed to the locker room, he threw the kid a table scrap — a sweaty T-shirt.







Raptors fall in Milwaukee


Quote:
It wouldn't have taken long to introduce the entire Toronto squad. The Raptors brought only nine players to Milwaukee, then found out that forward Reggie Evans was unable to play because of a sore left index finger. Joey Dorsey started in his place.
Leandro Barbosa has a sore right pinky finger, Andrea Bargnani a sore right ankle, Jose Calderon a sore left hamstring, Amir Johnson a sore left ankle and Sonny Weems a sore right knee.
Still, Toronto controlled most of the game against a Milwaukee team that has played well on defence for most of the season but struggled to guard in recent games. Then the Raptors started turning the ball over, and the Bucks took advantage.
Trailing by two, the Bucks shot to an 81-77 lead with 5:31 left on three straight fast-break scores by Jennings, including an emphatic slam dunk.
Toronto later cut the lead to two with 1:33 left, but Gooden hit a layup and converted a three-point play to put the game out of reach.





Shorthanded Raptors can’t catch Bucks


Quote:
Jerryd Bayless scored 20 for Toronto in a matchup between two teams eliminated from playoff contention. The injury-riddled Raptors used only eight players — and it showed in the fourth quarter, when they committed six of their 20 turnovers.
“I think that’s how the game went,” Raptors coach Jay Triano said. “They wore us down in the second half.”
The Raptors shot 23 free throws before halftime to the Bucks’ 11, but struggled to get to the line in the second half.
“We didn’t drive as much in the second half as I would have liked,” Triano said. “Our guys were just worn down a little bit.”
Bayless was unhappy with his six turnovers, including three in the fourth quarter.
“In the second half I was careless with the ball, I missed shots,” Bayless said. “I played terrible.”
Toronto finishes the season at home against Miami on Wednesday. The Bucks finish the season at Oklahoma City on Wednesday.





Bucks rally to win


Quote:
The Bucks used a 15-0 fourth-quarter run to defeat the Toronto Raptors, 93-86, Monday night in the Bucks home finale at the Bradley Center.
Guard John Salmons led Milwaukee with 24 points and Brandon Jennings added 21. Guard Jerryd Bayless scored 20 points and Joey Dorsey grabbed 20 rebounds for Toronto.
Two layups by Salmons opened the second half and trimmed Toronto’s lead to 51-50. A jumper and three-pointer by Bayless helped the Raptors push their lead to 60-54 but Bucks guard Jennings sank a layup and four free throws and Milwaukee tied the game, 62-62, on a jumper by Drew Gooden with 4:36 left.
Toronto then outscored the Bucks, 8-2, and the Raptors were ahead after three quarters, 71-69.
Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders scored on a short hook shot to start the fourth quarter and tie the game but with Dorsey muscling the Bucks inside, Toronto then scored six straight. But then the Bucks ran off eight straight, the last four on a pair of fast-break layups by Jennings, and Milwaukee led, 79-77, with 5:49 left.
Coming out of a timeout, Jennings threw down a fast-break dunk, Drew Gooden added two free throws, Ersan Ilyasova scored on a tip-in, Salmons sank a free throw and the Bucks led, 86-77, with 3:18 remaining

I'd like to give both girls a couple of Big Macs. (But, let's be honest... I'd just steal the Macs back and eat 'em!)

Man Candy looks a bit like Colin Farrell.

Raptors better lose on Wednesday. Raps with a 15.6% chance of getting Irving. If Washington or Minnesota get #1, do they get Irving?

Washington has Wall and Minnesota has a plethora of point guards so I'd like to say no, but they might take the best player available as well...

They'll have to somehow beat Cleveland for the #1 pick. But you never know, anything can happen during the draft day.

What most sources are saying:

Cleveland - Derrick Williams/Irving
Minnesota - Enes Kanter/another Bargs
Toronto - Irving/another Bargs

I figured since what I thought was "conventional beauty" tended to not be acceptable for so many of you that I would try something different...

The SSg is not that bad at all. She just needs to eat a little bit/get a tan. On the other hand the RFG is one of the nastiest women i have ever seen on any website. What the fuck is going on with her. She looks like she is about 20 ponds, no tits, pasty ass skin and ugly ass face. Give me the SSG any day of the weeks over that ugly pile of shit.
