Arrow T.Jose Calderford: Definitely not a lazy Sunday

Quote:
The Raptors have now played 6 Sunday home dates against Western Conference opponents this season. They're 5-1 against Phoenix, Houston, New Orleans, San Antonio, Dallas, and the Lakers.... 6 teams that, collectively, are 59 games above .500 this season.
Quote:
I don't like to get caught up in writing about non-quantifiable stuff here at Caldeford, however, I want to briefly mention the unique electricity that was present at the ACC during the game last night.


There's only a few players that have come in to the arena (in my experience) that just have that aura about them: MJ, Kobe, Shaq, LeBron, and Vince. Mr. Carter probably doesn't belong on that list based on his accomplishments, but because of his---ahem---history here, he generates (or at least did) that buzz in the building.


Anyways, best crowd and best game of the season...


INSTANT NOSTALGIA


So where does it rank in terms of best regular season home dates ever? Here's a brief list I put together... counting down from five:


5. Sunday, January 8th, 2006 --- NJ 105, TOR 104 --- The only loss on the list. Playing in just his second game back in Toronto, Vince Carter hits a game winning three pointer that he calls "his greatest shot ever." Carter scored 42 points, including 24 in the fourth quarter... and he also got good friend Morris Peterson ejected from the game in the first half after Steve "Look at me" Javie made one of the worst calls I've ever seen in person. Bonus points because I somehow managed to sit courtside for this game, and made Vince laugh with one of my chirps.
