Torontosaurus 12-13-2009 03:03 PM

Jack is player of the game, I agree!

Turk had a great game too, they couldn't stop him. Weems and Amir brought a lot of energy, gotta love it!

is it me or was Houston sleeping
away teams don't like those early starts

moremilk 12-13-2009 03:05 PM

jack is my favorite raptors player as of this week - he's exactly what bosh, bargnani, turkoglu and calderon are not ....

And he was our top rebounder tonight ...

as far the game, we played badly, but they missed a ton of open 3s, can't be too happy about that. We didn't deserve to win tonight, but at least we're preventing another long losing streak.

Rockets finally woke up in the 4th but it was too late

Unbeliever 12-13-2009 03:07 PM

Jack&Turk combination is best for Raps I guarentee that.Start Jack!!

Acie 12-13-2009 03:09 PM

Fantastic effort.

Jack's did it all today...facilitator, slasher, shooter, enforcer, defensive presence and most importantly leader!

Great game from Jarett Jack :yeah:. I hope he brings it like this every game. Great team guy also and great interview at the end. He said hes got to hold the fort until Jose gets back. Jack you play like this and you keep starting games and Jose can come off the bench.

Thank you Houston ....for keeping your Rockets at home. Easy win today for our team.

Maybe my favourite Raps performance this season.... and that's probably because for the first time other than the CHI game I can't think of anyone who really played badly.

Hedo & Jack were HUGE all game long and I thought that Bargs chipped in nicely and actually looked like a CENTER out there boxing out and grabbing boards (and rotating on D!).

Weems and Pops gave us some nice spark off the bench as well.

One thing that I really want to point out in this game was how well it was COACHED. Probably Triano's best game of the season as well. From the pre-game run through (1st time that they've done that), to the use of timeouts, to the managing of minutes, to the use of subs (knowing when to play Weems and Pops and Banks and when to pull them) I thought that he did a GREAT job. And our defense looked STELLAR for much of the game.

The haters better recognize.... at least for one game lol.

WAY TO GO HEDO! THIS IS WHAT HE BROUGHT YOU IN FOR! :yeah:

You must be joking? This team brought it defensively tonight especially under our own basket. We weren't perfect, our D is never gonna be lock down. But if we bring this energy, coupled with our offense we'll win games. The problem is, can we see this effort on most nights???

HeDoes 12-13-2009 03:11 PM

great play for Hedo, Jack and Bosh... Jack looks like an starter guard...

1 - Do you think the other teams' fans complain about a win when their team beats the Raps due to Toronto missing a bunch of open threes?

2 - Do Toronto's opponents deserve the win when the Raps miss a bunch of open threes?

Just asking 'cause, so far this year, the Raps have lost 3 or 4 games they othewise would have won had they shot a normal percentage from three.

How did we not deserve to win?

We took control from the opening tip and maintained the lead the entire game.

Lol... even in the midst of a great win the haters just won't go away.

Unbelievable.

Torontosaurus 12-13-2009 03:13 PM

I'm just so glad we don't have to rely on Will Solomon or Roko anymore if Calderon is out
