Post Today in Raptorland - 4/6/08



Courting disaster

Quote:
Don't look now, but the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks are two games in arrears of the Raptors, who suddenly face the possibility of opening the playoffs against Boston.

With five games remaining, there still exists time to hone their game, but clearly time is running out on the Raptors.
Adding insult to injury

Quote:
The theory is that Carter wanted to rub it in to his former team, but will likely sit out next Friday's return game at the Air Canada Centre, where fans have been quite vocal in expressing their disgust for Carter.


Frustration starting to boil over for Raps

Quote:
"The feeling is we've just got to play better. Everybody in there is frustrated. They understand we're not playing as well as we're capable of playing. That's no secret. We all feel that. What do y'all think? We don't care? Y'all think you're all more frustrated than us? It's not y'all jobs. It's our jobs. F---, we care. Everybody in that locker room, they're playing hard."


Raptors lose to New Jersey, have now lost 15 of last 21

Quote:
Carter was not the sole reason for Toronto's demise. The Raptors got solid play from their forwards, but almost nothing from their guards. Toronto shot 3-for-21 from beyond the three-point arc, a night after going just 4-for-17 from long range.

Toronto's swingman play has been dragging it down as of late, and it reached a valley last night. The four players at the position who are getting regular minutes - Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon, Carlos Delfino and Jason Kapono - combined to hit just 13 of their 38 field-goal attempts, with Parker having an especially off night, missing seven of his eight three pointers.


Carter calling, Nets reply in win

Quote:
"It says a lot about him as a person," Lawrence Frank said. "If you look at his ankle, it's very swollen and he had every opportunity, basically, to sit out or shut it down -- or definitely take some time off or reduce his minutes.

"Yet he continues to fight. And that's kind of what we talked about in the pregame: Our talk was about character (and) about professionalism and if you're able to do something, you're able to do it. And Vince is a first class person."

PITCHING IN

Point guard Jose Calderon will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at today's Jays-Red Sox game. The Spaniard threw the Raptors for a loop by picking up four fouls in 13 minutes, an oddity given Calderon's knack for staying out of foul trouble.
lol, I want to see that

Oy, is it just me, or does that come off exactly like Jason Spezza's comments last week? Only difference between us and the Sens right now is we were never on top.

Quote:
"The players are frustrated. The coaches are frustrated. We're all frustrated," said Sam Mitchell, the Raptors coach. "This is our job. We expect more out of ourselves. But we also understand that come April 14th, there's going to be (14) teams (that don't make the playoffs). You go into their locker room and guess what? They won't be there. We'll be there."
I hate this attitude. It's the attitude of "Well, we're in the playoffs, that's good enough." FUCK, show me some urgency.
