Raps better play physical ball. Blatche and Mason Jr. better be dominated. No way they can be allowed to play well back to back.

I'm worried about Bosh's energy tonight. He played too many minutes last night.

If Antawn gets another 20 boards I'm-a-gonna shit myself. Humps, Rasho, anybody... box that SOB out for christ's sake.

If we lose this game I may get myself banned from both boards from outrage.

And you got the matchups wrong, Blatche is 'guarded' by Bosh. If Bosh was on Jamison he woulda had a 40/20 on 16/25 instead of 20/20 on 9/25

At the end of the first quarter, the score is 23-28 the Raptors shot 52% in the first quarter and that is the reason for our early lead and good start so far in my opinion. The Wizards shot 42% but they are still in this game and may very well take over soon. Antawn Jamison has 9 points and Blatche and Stevenson both have 6 apiece. On the Raptors side, Jose Calderon has 9 points to go along with 3 assists on 3-3 shooting on the floor.

Should be a great 2nd quarter.

I was talking on the phone, so I wasn't giving the game my full attention, but Dixon, Delfino, Kapono, Rasho and Bargs were tearing it up. Bosh sat the entire second quarter.

Not to mention Roger Mason Jr. finally missed...

It's one of those games where unlikely players are stepping up, Belsius. Especially Bargnani.
He's not really rebounding, but he's getting to the line/having a nice offensive night. For a time in the first quarter, no body was rebounding at all. It was a repeat of last night. Things have not been so bad in the second quarter, though.

Rasho is looking great, but really the main reason why the lead is so big is because of the "three."

Holy sheep shit the Raps are giving it to Washington right up the wazoo. Nice to see Bargs rediscover his stroke.

started out just like last night, but they hit their shots and the confidence just spread. when raps are shooting well its tough to beat them. when they miss, they're fugly. it seems to be all or nothing.

That was some kind of recovery from last night. I was really digging Joey in garbage time backing down his man and then spinning and nailing the fadeaway.

Kind of off topic, don't know if anyone saw this, but after the game they started showing highlights of the Heat/Magic game and Louis Grillo got drilled in the face with the ball and Sid Seixeiro says, "nobody likes getting hit in the face with balls."

The guys on The Score easily have the best show. Easily. That being said, I always tune in to the start of Connected to see what Martine's wearing...

I sat next to Sid at a Tiger-cats game once. The more beer he drank, the louder he became and the more the four letter words started to fly. He wife was cute too.

WOW, looks like I missed a blowout.

BTW, did Bargnani score the majority of his points during garbage time, or was he producing earlier on?
