No one can close to save their lives on our roster. Was a horrible last 6 minutes with 70% field goal percentage in the 4th for Orlando...

FUCK THIS MAN! How you end up losing 16 pts lead so quickly? And where the fuck is Derozan in 4th Q?

Blame Barbosa and AC for tonights abysmal loss.

End of third Raptors are rolling, take out AB and Calderon for a breather, and all turns to shit...

No offence on the bench..

AC is Veteran and he puts up the ugliest shots.

Barbosa just throws himself into people rather than dishing it off, just stupid.

I actually MISS Kleiza and Bayless, ya quote me cause I just said that lol

Bargs now averaging 23 PPG thru 4 games. I wouldn't be shocked to see that continue to rise.

Barbosa has to be one of the dumbest ass players in the league.. has all the speed but no brains..

and Carter, a veteran that puts up rookie shots.. who in the hell told him that he was allowed to shoot the 3?

Derozan, your too passive.. he is playing like he did as a rookie when he was the last option on the court..

another great performance by Bargnanni wasted.. honestly, if your going to tank, screw this tanking in style.. get blown the frig out, and stop teasing us fans.. this was a bs lost

Missed this one (at work) but looked like some solid games from Bargs and Jose.... WTF happened in the 4th Q though? I was keeping track online and everything seemed to go to crap after the 3rd.

Oh well... viva le tank?

Well one might argue that outside of the officials, Barbosa and Carter absolutely ignore Bargnani out there. We've seen it before, once Jose sits Bargnani doesn't see the ball.

Barbosa... just selfish really, playing for a contract next year and looking bad doing it.

Carter.. can't blame him, he is here to mentor, he's not really supposed to be grabbing minutes. That said, he is just a terrible NBA player, Likely the worst in the league.

Face it, this team has absolutely no depth. None whatsoever. An extended off-season allowed fans to build certain players worth (Ed Davis/ Amir) up a little past the reality of what they can do so expectations maybe get a little out of hand. Fact is, beyond DD, Jose and Bargnani, there really isn't much on this team to be excited about night in and night out. The future is bright, but it isn't now.

This is where Kleiza and Bayless come in handy, AC didnt do crap in the third or fourth, and got 2 lucky baskets in the second. Barbosa drives and gets the easy charge, horrible closing, whats the point of play an awesome game and giving it away at the end? horrible just horrible

4th quarter:

-Barbosa turnovers thanks to offensive fouls, I counted about three
-Derozan throwing up airballs
-Calderon and Bargnani not getting enough Touches
-Magic making some tough shots from the perimeter
-Anthony Carter thinking hes Vince Carter from the 2000s

Bingo
Raps just don't have the depth and are burned out by the 3rd... I expect it to get worse as we get deeper into this year's ridiculous schedule

AB and Jose were excellent tonite...but we can't expect this quality night after night imo...i'm hoping there are no serious injuries down the line

Completely agree with everything here.. When Calderon is on the floor, you know the ball is going to Andrea, or at least thats Calderons first priority, he finds a way to get him the Rock. When AC or Barbosa come on the floor, you dont even realize AB is there. Now that I think of it, Bayless is similar in that, hes not always pass first. Maybe its experience and the fact that Calderon has been here longer, but its just inexcusable to have Barbosa trying to make circus plays, and AC literally drains the shot clock on every possession, not knowing what to do.

Expect more of this. And even more so later in the season when better teams come out serious at the beginning of games thinking about their playoff positions.

- LOL on the "losing horn" sound.
- I remember a lot of games last year where the Raps looked good for three quarters and then ran out of gas/talent in the fourth.
- Great game again from Bargs and Jose (double-double).
- Magloire played good minutes for an old guy.
- Ed Davis is starting to fustrate me. I remember him being better than this last year.
- Forbes, Butler, and AC are D-leaguers. Which I guess shouldn't suprise me.
- It's all about next year!

Bargs had 21 shots, that`s pretty solid. DeRozan shot poorly but he got to the line and shot 8 out of 9 there. He still managed to get 17 pts despite his poor shooting. That`s a good sign. Caldy: 13 assists and 1 turnover. And lets not forget this is a young team with a new coach. I`m very pleased where things are right now.
