It ain't close.
it's not that bad - they can't defend paul/west, but then again, neither NOK can defend Bosh. If Chandler gets in foul trouble, it could get interesting in the end.

And btw, Ford -7, Jose -1. It's closer today, maybe because they played together for the last 4 minutes.

I'm not that upset with this... a top 3 team firing on all cylinders is hard to match. They're playing like they're at home, just going off. Granted our horrible d has something to do with that.

I think our second unit should've came in sometime during the first half of the 3rd when we were getting our asses handed to us. I would've liked Bargnani to get more minutes, he was playing decently.

Oh and Kapono in the starting lineup... never again.

I think the timeout in the 3rd came too late, too late to stop the bleeding

On another note, I like what I've seen from Linton Johnson so far. He's showing the urgency the team needs. But then again, he's on a 10 day contract

that was a stupid move by Mitchell, not that it made any difference. I never heard about a coach taking somebody out of the starting lineup because he was concerned about a reserve ... So Kapono was not good enough to defend Bonzi, so he was promoted to being a starter. I guess promoting mediocrity is becoming the norm these days with the Raptors. Piece of advice for Humphries, if you want to start, better do something stupid - I'm sure Sam will give you a chance ....

Can we score 10 points in 3 mins and totally shutdown N.O. from scoring?

If we can do that, we win

TJ -18, Calderon +14 ... Suddenly our second unit is becoming a force again, after a few months of mediocrity. I wonder why ...

Oh so it was 118-110 then, not bad considering that wreckage at the end of the 3rd

i cant say im upset i missed most of this one. if they lay an egg in charlotte tomorrow against the team formerly known as the hornets then what? seriously. after seeing the lack of effort from the starters tonight, on the front end of a back to back, and knowing charlotte's propensity to pound the crap out of us on the boards, a loss tomorrow night virtually kills any momentum building the last few games have opened up for the team.
man, i can't believe the season has gotten to this point. is anyone else completely and utterly confused by a so-called playoff contender looking for answers this late in the season?

LOL, the +14 was the scrub city at the end of the game. Both pgs didnt do much this game.

And again, Smitch is a fucking idiot. 2 days to prepare and we get THAT? We played right into the Hornets hands. It was like a scrimmage for them. Paul dribbles around til our defence fucks up and they get a wide open shot from a great jumpshooter or they back off and he kills us. Bosh cant defend his shadow, I dunno why we didnt at least try to double more then once once West has 10 after 4 minutes of fucking play. You HAVE to double when Rasho cant even guard him.

I was hoping Graham would play today so we'd at least have a shot vs Wells, then Mitchell does his usual shitty coaching and puts our skinniest player on the best postup guard in the NBA.

We may as well have put Calderon on West and re signed Martin to guard Wells.

An inanimate object would have done a better coaching job than Sam this game. NO adjustments on the fucking pick and roll even in the 2nd half, just embarrassing.

true, they both sucked, but nevertheless, you have to admit that our second unit is playing better recently.

And please, cut some slack to poor Sam, he spent most of his preparation coming up with schemes on how to stop Bonzi Wells, so naturally he didn't have time for the rest of the Hornets. And besides, they made some shots, cp3 is a mvp candidate, west is one of the best pf in the game, chandler is a monster on the boards etc ... I missed the post game show, I wonder what was the excuse of the day ....
