Default Daily Raptor Dish - 28.03.2012


Good morning! You've come to the place where you can get your links in non-sausage form, and dish out all the meat yourself in the thread below. Go to it.



STAR: Alan Anderson’s basketball odyssey makes stop with Toronto Raptors

SUN: Newest Raptor has played here, there, everywhere

NP: Let them (Toronto Raptors fans) eat pizza

GLOBE: Raptors likely lose Bayless for season

SI: Power Rankings
Quote:
25 Toronto Raptors (16-34)
The Raptors enjoyed a lucky 13 games earlier this season when Andrea Bargnani was both healthy and sincerely committed to playing conscientious defense for the first time in his career. But then the 7-footer was sidelined for six weeks with a calf injury and since his return he has reprised his poor approach to defense that is often mocked by Raptors fans. Monday's loss to Orlando was vintage Bargnani, and not in a good way. Apparently assigned to cover Ryan Anderson and occasionally double-team Dwight Howard, Bargnani spent much of the game between the two tasks, doing neither well. Anderson had six three-pointers in the first half alone, finished 8-of-13 from behind the arc and had 28 points. Howard scored 23 points on 8-for-14 shooting. What makes this lapse maddening is the memory of Bargnani's energy and effectiveness earlier in the season. When his offense is flowing and his defense is engaged, he looks like an All-Star, and someone worthy of being the first player chosen in the 2006 draft.

Andrea Bargnani has shot just 34 percent since returning from his calf injury, but the Raptors' defense was good enough to smother the Knicks on Friday and come a split second from upsetting the Bulls on Saturday. They have the league's eighth-best defense since the break, which is something to build on.

Even by the standards of this wacky campaign, Toronto just completed a quirky five-day stretch of schedule. They almost pulled off a back-to-back sweep of the hot Knicks (at home) and hotter Bulls (losing by a point in overtime on the road) after losing by double digits to both teams earlier in the week.


Eric Smith @Eric__Smith#Raptors announce Guard Jerryd Bayless has a partially torn left oblique muscle and is expected to miss the rest of the season. #SN590

Velveeta?

Is that because she looks like once she's warmed up she's easy to get to spread?

She looks like she has been airbrushed with a thin layer of velveeta. Bring on the nachos.
