convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

Post Today in Raptorland - 2/25/08



All hands on deck

Quote:
"It's always been my motto, the guys who play well, play," said Mitchell. "I thought he did well for a guy who didn't really know what he was doing. He was talking on defence. He was active. We know he can score the ball round the basket, he's got a nice little shot."

"Definitely," said Brezec, when asked if he brings that type of energy to every game. "When I'm on the court, I give my best. If I play one minute, two minutes, I don't care. That's just me, the way I play."


Pieces starting to fall into place for key Raptors

Quote:
"Andrea was huge for us," said the coach after the second-year centre hit five-of-10 three-pointers and grabbed seven rebounds.

"He stayed out of foul trouble, he played a lot of minutes in the first half because he didn't pick up that bad foul. He played great, he was just so consistent shooting the basketball."
Brezec an enjoyable addition to the Raptors

Quote:
Mitchell probably shakes his head plenty at Brezec anyway, letting on that the new man refers to him as "Gangster," in some variation. The cause seems to be that he learned his English from watching popular culture and, as Mitchell said, "everything started with gangster and ended with pimp.

"I don't know who he was around or what movies he was watching,'' Mitchell added. "I don't even know my name. I don't think it's Coach anymore, or Sam. It's Gangster. I won't add the second part."


Raptors avenge loss to Knicks

Quote:
"He fits right in with us," Ford said. "He's got a swagger, he's got an attitude, he's a confident guy. He fits right in this locker room."


No mistakes this time, Raptors bury Knicks

Quote:
It is the basis, along with the pick-and-roll, of Toronto's offence. During a loss to the Knicks on Friday, the Raptors went away from Bosh for minutes at a time. They did not make the same mistake Sunday night.

And Bargnani was the biggest beneficiary of the simple math. The sophomore took up shop beyond the arc, firing a season-high 10 long-balls. He drilled five of them, finishing with 25 points in all. He scored 15 in the first half, after Bosh picked up two early fouls.


Raptors Dominate Knicks From Every Angle

Quote:
Andrea Bargnani, an agile 7-footer, beat the Knicks from the perimeter. Rasho Nesterovic and Primoz Brezec, two not-so-agile 7-footers, beat the Knicks inside. Chris Bosh, a sleek 6-10, beat them from wherever he chose to shoot. And when the Knicks tried to make a late charge, the smallest Raptor in the rotation, the 6-foot T. J. Ford, finished them off.


Raptors stand tall over Knicks

Quote:
Apparently, the Raptors never received the memo about the NBA phasing out the big man.

Isiah Thomas claims the league is going small, but Toronto keeps getting bigger - three seven-footers to go along with 6-10 power forward Chris Bosh. And the Raptors' size and skill overwhelmed the Knicks in the second half last night as Toronto cruised to a 115-92 victory that left Thomas' club with a 17-39 record with 26 games to play.

"They got a lot of big men who can play," Zach Randolph said.
