also putting TJ on Bibby was idiotic, you need somebody tall to alter the shot. Obviously they needed a 3pt shot, so you might as well put Bosh and moon on bibby and johnson, if they choose to drive, then more power to them, by the time they get to the hoop the game is over ...

Despicable loss


With that clock error, we should be given the game.

But its wishful thinking

I'm honestly sick and tired of getting screwed by the damn Hawks.

First the TJ scorekeeping incident

Than TJ is injured after Horford rapes him

Now they take a win from us.

I'm sick of the Hawks! I'm sick of there scorekeepers, franchise, city, players, logo, everything!

If he had fouled him we would all be here asking why, because I'm sure with our luck even if he had fouled him on the floor Bibby would've sold the three point attempt enough to get the call. So he got a face in his hand.

He could have jumped....and they could have fouled earlier...I'm not ragging on T.J don't get so defensive.....just curious is all, he seemed very nonchalant about the whole thing.

The Toronto Raptors were a tenth of a second away from clinching a playoff berth. Instead, that will have to wait until Friday at the earliest.

Hurt by what appeared to be a game-altering time-keeping error at the end of regulation time, the Raptors ended up falling to 127-120 in overtime to the Hawks in Atlanta Wednesday night.

With the loss, Toronto is now in a three-way tie for fifth place with both the Washington Wizards and the Philadelphia 76ers. And the opportunity to lock down a playoff spot has been postponed.

It should already be a done deal.

With the game tied and a half-second remaining on the clock, Toronto had a chance to win the game. But T.J. Ford's alley-oop layup was released a fraction of a second after time expired. However, the clock appeared to start a tenth of a second before Ford touched the ball, likely was the difference between a good basket and overtime.

It was unclear immediately after the game if Toronto would protest the result.

In the extra period, the Raptors got off to an early four-point advantage, but the Hawks drilled three three-pointers down the stretch to take advantage of their second chance.

Still, it never should have gotten that far. Toronto led by 12 heading into the fourth quarter, but the Hawks chipped away throughout the frame.

In the game's last 12 seconds, Atlanta had three chances to tie the game with a three-pointer, thanks to the Raptors' inability to get an offensive rebounds on two separate occasions. Mike Bibby nailed the third try with a half-second remaining.

The ending overshadowed great efforts from the point-guard tandem of Ford and Jose Calderon.

The duo was efficient, with Ford finishing with 23 points and 13 assists, and Calderon wrapping up the evening with 10 assists.

Ford was at his freewheeling best, especially in the third quarter. He was in tune with his teammates as the Raptors had to go out of their way to miss a shot. Ford threw alley-oop passes on two consecutive possessions, including one that will find highlight reels everywhere thanks to Jamario Moon's reverse finish.

Ford also hit a crucial running jumpshot in the lane in the fourth quarter, extending Toronto's lead to three after the Hawks had whittled it down to one.

The game was Ford's first since Dec. 11, when Atlanta's Al Horford hit the Toronto guard in the forehead on a layup attempt. Ford fell hard to the floor, hitting his head. He missed almost two months because of the neck injury he suffered, and he did not find his rhythm until just recently.

The guards got some help, too. Chris Bosh was quiet for the majority of the first half, but took the game over as the Hawks made a run at the Raptors' lead in the fourth quarter. With his teammates labouring offensively, Bosh earned three straight trips to the free-throw line midway through the quarter, hitting all six shots.

Bosh had 24 points, while Rasho Nesterovic finished with 23 points in the middle.

Andrea Bargnani, who went scoreless against in eight minutes of play against the Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday, had 14 points in the first half off the bench.

But Bargnani had little impact on the second half, and his teammates, with the help of the scorekeepers, found a way to lose. Points for creativity, though.

I'm not being defensive, I thought maybe he jumped straight up instead of into Bibby, but since he's only 5'3" so you couldn't really tell.

Just for the
record

Official Rules of the National Basketball Association state

"NO LESS THAN :00.3 must expire on the game clock when a player secures possession of an inbounds pass and then attempts a field goal. If less than :00.3 expires in such a situation, the timer will be instructed to deduct AT LEAST :00.3 from the game clock. If less than :00.3 remain on the game clock when this situation occurs, the period is over, and the field goal attempt will be disallowed immediately whether successful or unsuccessful."

Bottom line is we should've won this one. The fourth quarter and overtime defense was despicable. Have these guys no pride? How do you let Josh Smith hit a three, stare down your bench, talk smack and then come back down on the next possession and hit another three?


*I'm talking to you Mr. Chris "We need to step up the intensity but I can't hit an open layup with the game on the line" Bosh

WOW .... what on earth happened? I didn't bother watching the 2nd half because I thought we had this one in the bag. I guess I was sadly mistaken.

I am.

Our so called "fastest player" fucking couldn't stay with thoier primary option on that play, when that was ALL he had to do, not only that, he watched his up fake and the stood straight up and gave a half hearted arm up for the shot. Unbelievable. Sam ebody language I wathced last game everytime he went below picks and his guy went to the hole.

I mean it's a clos eplay, but I'm a little amused at how great a defender you all thnk this dude is. They preyed on him tonight.

The Raps are too small.

Heh.

I wish I had an answer.

There's your franchise guy.

My buddy Rob is a great player, but doesn't watch hoops much, his comment of the night was,

"What's wrong with Bosh, he's afraid of Smith".

I think he summed up our whole team in one, honest statement

How to defend in two steps:

-First put your legs in action
-Second step, raise straight up your arms like you mean it

is it me, or Bosh's defense has gotten horribly worse over the past 2 weeks? Not only that, but he's no longer rebounding the ball well. 5 rebounds in 46 minutes??? Against a small team like Atlanta? Since coming back from injury he's averaging less than 8 rebounds per game.

Well with Mitchell's track record of blowing 2nd half leads the Raps have be up at least 18 points in at the beginning of the 4th for me to feel comfortable that they will win.
