How does the M&M eating fatass Butler get the final shot? Second game in a row with shitty final play drawn up Casey

You can't realize that he was the last option and the only reason he was out there is that he's a better 3pt shooter than 10 of our other players. Credit NY for the defense. Which i can't believe i'm saying.

Im really really pissed today, and usually don't care about the lost game so much, because im supporting the tank. But todays game mostly our ''fans'' just made me really mad.

the problem I have with it is that there's waaaay too much hypocrisy on that subject, particularly among people who make a public display of something that should be very private and personal. Not saying Lin is one of them, just that when you've seen so much bs, it's hard not to feel a bit cynical about it.

as for the fans, not sure what the problem is. Clearly there number of raptor fans in the crowd was not as big as it should have been. I don't have a problem with the asian community going to support their guy, the same thing happens for every international player and nobody gives a shit. The only difference is there are a lot more chinese in toronto than germans or spaniards or lithuanians etc.

Any member of this board who could have gone to the game and stayed home has no right to complain imo.

That was a big time shot by Lin. He had a great 4th Quarter.

The Raptors, though, played sloppy basketball in the final 12 minutes. Offensively, they turned the ball way too often and didn't get many good looks. Credit NY for some great defence, especially Shumpert, whose defence keyed the comeback. I think he forced Calderon into 3 or 4 turnovers and got the Raptors out of their rhythm.

Defensively, the Raptors stopped aggressively hedging on the screen-and-rolls. Instead, the big man sagged low, thus allowing Lin to penetrate easily and often. The Raptors also failed to make Lin go left.

Tough loss for the Raptors, but that was a great game.

Funny, the asian community in this city are pretty big on basketball. More so then any other sport.

casey is doing miracles with our defense, but he's getting a lot of slack too. He's making a lot of strategic mistakes, especially late in games, but since most people are happy to lose games this year, there's not a lot of focus on that. Next season it will be a whole different story if we don't get our act together late in games.

The last play of the game wasn't designed for Butler but for Barbosa. Butler only got the ball because Calderon had to throw the ball to someone and Butler was the only guy who was reasonably open.

My thoughts exactly so foolish simply supporting someone because he's Asian.

Casey said after the Lakers game that Derozan was the last option on the floor, and this was no different with Butler. Credit their D for the defence they played on Jose, Kleiza and Barbosa on that last play.

in that particular scenario, who cares who gets the ball, it would be a miracle shot in anybody's hands. I doubt if you make a basket 1 out of 1000 tries in that scenario. Much bigger issue is failing to recognize that Calderon was gassed and had to deal with lin on defense and with shumpert hounding him on offense for the last 3-4 minutes.

The nationalist stuff just seems so lame. Again, I could be wrong, but I don't recall the same overwhelmingly positive and supportive reaction towards Steve Nash when he came in wearing an opposing uniform.

But, you're sort of right about the people who stayed home. The sad thing is, some of the most hardcore Raps fans don't have enough disposable income to show up to more than a few games, if that. Tough to beat the Lin fans to the punch. I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of Leaf fan season ticket holders sold their Raps tickets to Lin fans...

Yeah? I didn't know that, I'm not from Toronto. Just my impression on what I saw today on TV plus I haven't seen many Asians when I watch a regular game. This again is just based on what I see on TV...

Yeah like Canadians supporting a player because he's Canadian never happens. Even Triano got some slack because he was Canadian.

Calderon has been putting up MVP numbers in his last two games. Sell high.

I truly 100% hope somebody busts Lin's kneecap and he's out for the rest of his career. He had like 9 turnovers and raps outplayed the knicks for a whole 46 minutes, but his team gets a stupid run and the and now everyone's gonna act like he's amazing. That stupid face he made after hitting the game winner made me want to kill him.
