Rasheed Bites Raptors, But Not Some Other Opponents

Interesting article. He really does get the best of us. Some of the comments at the bottom are ridiculous.

At first I thought Rasheed Wallace was just having a good game back on November 27 and the Celtics just happened to be playing the Raptors. Then, when January 2 rolled around and 'Sheed posted another great game against Toronto, the signs of consistency were starting to swirl. Hmm...Maybe 'Sheed likes playing the Raptors. Then, yesterday happened and it is now an indisputable fact: Rasheed Wallace LOVES playing against the Toronto Raptors.

Here are his lines from all three games:

November 27: 6-11 FG, 3-6 3PT, 0-0 FT, 15 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 steals, 1 block, 1 turnover, 1 technical foul

January 2: 6-11 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-2 FT, 16 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 0 turnovers, 1 technical foul

January 10: 9-12 FG, 5-7 3 PT, 6-6 FT, 29 points, 8 rebounds, 0 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks, 0 turns, 0 technical fouls (!)

That last line is a doozy. In what was arguably his best performance as a member of the Boston Celtics, Rasheed struck hard and struck early from all angles and both sides of the ball. Two defensive highlights for Wallace yesterday: Yelling at Kendrick Perkins to stay "Straight up!" when Perk was stuck in a mismatch against Jarrett Jack in the corner with 9:42 left in the first quarter and the pass he stole that was intended for Chris Bosh with 1:07 left to play. It cut off a potential scoring opportunity for Toronto amidst their comeback and swung the momentum.

he's a guy who excels in the psychological department of the game. he gets into guys heads, and when you have weakminded players on the court, his psyche alone is enough for 20 and 10.
we need mr spock.

sheed was a good pickup obviously. he senses noone can stand up to him on our team and feasts upon it. once players get that kind of confidence going they generally do well lol
