Yes, it's against weak teams but I like the way that this team is playing right now.

What impresses me most is that they're leaving no doubt as to who the better team is.

That's a sign of growth. And it's what great teams do.

Full credit to Hedo & Bargs who were spectacular tonight.

Sonny, Belli and Jack gave us some nice flashes too.

27.9% FG for DET.. lol.... wow... that's horrid.

good defense, rebounding not considered
it's the first game this season where I really liked our defense, our switches were great, lots of talking and lots of running around. I thought Bargnani was fantastic on D, 2 blocks and tons of challenged shots and much fewer mistakes than usual

OK. Hedo was fantastic.

Loved his play on the offensive end - he was my vote for best player.
Bargnani was up there too though... some seriously sweet, highlight reel buckets from him too.

We expected a win, and we got a complete dismantling. Can't none of us be unhappy about tonight.

See, it can be done. And with all those out, still Detroit is not as bad as some say it is.
When Raps want it, when the rotation is half way decent, things go pretty well.
Good win, nice chat.
Congrats to both the team and the board.

Good game today. For the next game we must improve on our rebounding because we will lose the next game if we don't. Other then that today was a good game but then again Detroit was coming off a back to back. Bargs is the player of the game with Hedo coming in a very very close second

we beat a bad team for once!

Is Triano trying to scare away players like Wright and Rasho, fack, we might as well package them now before Triano takes away all their trade value, even though we should be playing Wright opposed to Weems against team who are half decent.

let's remind ourselves that we have come around since playing the likes of New Jersey, New Orleans, and now a tired, injured Detroit.

let's keep things in perspective.

Why?

Weems looks great on both ends of the floor. Better than Wright - by a country mile.

Since the win streak started, Triano has been doing a fine job.

I'm all but convinced that Wright isn't 100%. He didn't seem like it when he played. At any rate... what is he going to bring that DD and Weems don't? Those guys have been playing great on both ends. Let him sit I say.

As for Rasho... he'll still be useful against those teams that have larger bigs and against teams that play more of a halfcourt game. Right now it seems as though Triano is trying to use a more athletic, quick lineup... and it's hard to argue with him at this point.

Hey I'll be the first to congratulate Jack (and Banks too) for his play.
Jack has upped his game and is looking like a core player.

Does anyone know the Raptors record when Bargs shoots the ball more than 15 times?

I'm way too dam lazy right now to check but I'm thinking its a favourable record
