I just watched another replay of that forearm by Johnson and had he been running and jumped while attacking Jose you'd swear that he was trying to imitate Tito Santana's "Flying Forearm". :mad:

Nice way to finish off the 3rd quarter. Moon with a huge block on Horford and Parker nailin' a couple treys.

Let's keep this momentum coming because Atlanta looking tired right now and playing very sloppy.

Moon, Jose, AP and Bosh were so good tonight when it counted that I could've been out on the floor with them and it wouldn't have mattered.

Raptors win a hard fought game 78-89, Chris Bosh and Jose Calderon both showing why they deserve to be all-stars this season. Chris Bosh with 35 points 9 rebounds and 3 assists. Jose Calderon with a 13 point 6 rebound 8 assist game himself. Raptors shot a respectable 48% from the field, and have to feel good heading into tomorrows game in Philadelphia.

Kudos to Bosh because he's playing like man possessed and the player that everyone in Toronto have been hoping for. Unstoppable he's been. Right now over the last 2 weeks I don't think there's been a better player in the league right now that Bosh.

But seriously, Moon tonight had 5 steals and 3 sick blocks. Hmm .... I think I have an idea for another thread.

Bosh was great taking it to the hole and I love that little baby hook in the lane.

But you can tell the difference from the start of the season to now. The knee had a bigger affect on his game than we all originally thought. Now, there's no hesitation on taking it hard to the hoop and he isn't afraid to get hit or get physical himself. If he could only fight more for possession/space and get more physical when rebounding, then he'd be the complete PF for us.

I posted this in another thread by accident, anyway, Bosh shot 12 for 18. If he keeps shooting like that, is going to be difficult to beat us.

Yup, getting to the line is key because not only it is gimme points (if we can actually hit our free throws) but its also getting the opposing team in foul trouble. Besides Bosh, I'd like to see more of the other players getting to the line and drawing fouls. If we can do that consistantly, we're gonna be tough to beat. JMO.

To me it was obviously the knee and rust. It really bothered me that people were questioning his heart and his abilities, which to me were never in doubt.

And I'm sure he'd be better rebounding if he wasn't forced to fight off both the oppositions bigs while his fellow Raps starting big screams, "Wonder Twin Powers activate...shape of a pylon."

great effort from all non-Italian Raps tonight. I renew my question - why isn't Bosh taking 20-25 shots a game?

I was one of those guilty parties that was questioning him and his performance, but I wasn't one of the ones that wanted him dealt. ...... OK, maybe once or twice last year and earlier this year I suggested maybe dealing him in a package that would bring Gasol to Toronto ...... but I was in a sad and depressive state and was highly intoxicated ..... so, I never meant it.

Well, its good to see the other players get hot too. Parker is clearly back and delfinos last game was sick. So if in order to that to happend he takes less shots and rest of the team takes more and makes em, I prefer the second option.
