Post Today in Raptorland - 1/17/08



Raptors share the wealth and clobber Kings

Quote:
They were mostly found by Calderon, who had 14 of those assists, giving him 1,001 for his tenure in Toronto, adding his name to a list that includes Alvin Williams, Damon Stoudamire, Vince Carter and Doug Christie as the only four 1,000-assist guys in Toronto franchise history.
Raptors driving in the right direction

Quote:
This team has long defended its status as pacifists; hard fouls aren't in their makeup. But hard dribbles to the hoop shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Mitchell, who's been preaching it long enough, was heartened to see a little progress last night, even if more is required.

"I had to threaten Jamario with taking him out of the game if he didn't drive, and he drove, and he dropped the ball off to Chris for two free throws," said Mitchell. "We've just got to keep encouraging guys to do that."


Kings konged by Raps

Quote:
Win or lose, good game or bad, Bosh at one point in his post-game discussion brings up the need for the Raptors to be more aggressive going to the basket.

Bosh has heard that from Day 1 from Raptors head coach Sam Mitchell and has heeded that advice far more often than not. Too often though he has been a gang of one.
Sam has his fun

Quote:
Yesterday the question that set him off was the standard: "Any changes to the lineup?"

Mitchell reacted like a member of his family had just been insulted and then quickly went on the offensive.

"We're 3-1 in our last four games," Mitchell said. "The last time I checked the best you can be is 4-0. Unless you guys have some ideas how you can get better than that, I'm open to suggestion."


Raptors go on the rampage

Quote:
"It all started with [Calderon] taking care of the ball and then [Bosh] giving the ball up. When he commands the double team, we have been talking to him about just making the first easy pass out of the trap, and he did that."
Yup, the Pistons are better than the Raptors

Quote:
a.“Come on take him, it’s Carlos” – apparently Carlos Delfino’s defensive chops weren’t quite so valued when he was on the Pistons as they are with the Raptors.
b. “Wrong sport, should have been a Patriot, not a Raptor” – an ode to Kris Humphries’ hurly-burly stylings.
c. The Pistons are being their patient selves on offence and Sam is screaming for a three-second violation to be called -- "three seconds, three seconds"-- right about the time Rip Hamilton drills another three, to which the chorus replies: “You mean in three seconds you’ll be down by 10?
d. Mitchell tries to argue another three-pointer should have been, in fact, a two-pointer. The chorus: “What do you mean? It was a three. [He was so open] It should have been a five.”
e. And finally: “Don’t get made at him, he’s all you got,” as Mitchell dares scold Bosh.


Raptors make Kings look like paupers

Quote:
Toronto Raptors coach Sam Mitchell compared his star power forward to his former teammate, a three-point specialist.

"He reminds me of Reggie, body-wise," Mitchell said. "Everyone used to make a big deal over how slender and slight of build Reggie was, but Reggie was just wiry strong."

"And with Chris, that's the thing I told you about. [In my] last year [as a player], watching [Miller] come out and play with two knee braces on and his shoulder was injured and he played 40 minutes that night in a meaningless game. And he played hard."


Back at full strength, Kings suffer worst loss of season

Quote:
With the Kings down by 20 in the third quarter, coach Reggie Theus admitted that he decided to "let it burn," leaving in Bibby, Artest and Martin with the hopes that conditioning would be aided and maybe the chemistry, too. And they certainly went down burning, with Theus afterward engaging his team in what was easily his longest postgame discussion of the season.

"I had several things I needed to go over," he said. "There's a lot of things. The three-ball. The rebounds (Toronto held a 42-29 advantage). The effort-based things.

"I thought that we were outworked tonight. I thought we played hard for a period of time, but the bottom line is that we were outworked. And that bothers me more than anything."
