Raptors 85, Milwaukee 112

Will the real Toronto Raptors please stand up?

After coming out as offensive monsters against Philly and New Jersey, the Raptors the last two games have looked more like the last dog out of the gate at a greyhound race. They don't give a fuck about the rabbit. What's going on?
  • The Bucks wanted the rabbit. They scored 37 points in the first quarter.
  • The Raps were one and done the entire first quarter. No ball movement. Lots of dribbling between the legs, and lots of ill-advised shots early in the shot clock. I thought they would have learned from their slow start against Boston.
  • What's going on with Bosh? Maybe it's not Bosh, maybe there's a problem with the offensive sets. He doesn't seem to be in his comfort spots. I really hope his knee is okay.
  • Yi Jianlian is the real deal. I was thoroughly impressed with his game.
  • Desmond Mason 10 for 10? What is this? No really, what is this?
  • Michael Redd is not worth max money. I don't care how pretty his shot looks.
  • Jamario Moon was trying so hard to impress coach Mitchell that he forgot to think. Hopefully we won't need to see him on the floor for the next few games.
  • Give Kris Humphries more minutes! What a bully! In a night of lowlights, he provided the one play to cheer about: Swatting an Andrew Bogut layup back in his face! ... Then, on the other end of the floor, Hump committed an offensive foul. It was one of those nights.
I'll be at the ACC for the Raptors/Magic game tomorrow night. Here's hoping we bounce back!
