You guys are putting Bargs and lowry i the same box just because they were injured together for these 2 wins. OMG 2 wins without lowry! He must be apart of the problem with that bum Bargs! Its revolutionary!

So easily swayed/convinced/manipulated this fan base is

While this may be true, you don't have to alienate the people of counter beliefs. Perhaps try the "hey, what about this point of view guys?", rather than the "you guys are so stupid, don't you see this" angle.

+1 to douchiness?

This was a fun game to watch. Our interior defense was amazing and really kept us in their defensively. Nice production from Anderson off the bench and Jose was phenomenal finding guys moving without the ball.

Raptors 103 Rockets 96 (Dec 16, 2012) - Recap - YouTube
really excited that AA is back and playing well. remember a few weeks ago how thin our wing rotation was b/c of the injuries?

we're not half bad now with the healthy bodies. DD, Ross, AA, Linas and Pietrus. here's to hoping we can get a 15 - 20 point performance from AA, Linas or Pietrus almost every night.

Last season after Bargs 13 games he was deemed an all-star, nobody wanted him traded and now nobody thinks we could anything significant for him. This season it's taken Jose 1.5 games to get to that Bargs 13 game status. That's impressive! Oh and lets hold onto him too. lol

7 years of Bargnani failure and now it's all about the guy that's been here for 7 weeks. Good on Jose though.

Yup, and 8 years of Calderon and mostly wanting him gone is erased after 2 wins vs so so teams at home as our schedule eases up.

Hey guys how does +- work in the nba? Because I was looking at nba.com and noticed valancunias was a +12 even though he only had 2 points and a couple boards, is it how well they help the team or something? Hopefully this isn't a noob question lol

Jeff, please, speak for yourself. The loud majority (even if the majority of fans really want Jose gone, which I seriously doubt) has rarely been right throughout the history, both of sports and the society at large.

It measures team's points differential while a particular player is on the floor.

its like the +/- stat in hockey, every point your team scores while you're on the court gives you a +1 and every point the opponent scores while you're on the court is a -1. It's kind of a bogus stat in basketball.

Give lowry a chance to play without Bargs, and you'll get more Ws for sure.
Agreed!

This is just not true. It's so obvious but you can't even see it.
