Boston 110 Toronto 96

The Raptors absorbed another defeat at the hands of the Celtics 96-110 . Toronto failed to narrow the gap between its Atlantic division rival .The team from Beantown outgunned the Raptors in 2 categories :
  1. Top guns Pierce , Szcerbiak and West outshot James, Bosh and Peterson ( 72-65 points )
  2. Young guns Pierkins and Green outdueled Villanueva and Graham ( 19-10 points )

However , in the battle of red haired hoopters , Matt Bonner edged Brian Scalabrine.Good for the New Hampshire born Raptor .He always plays respectable ball in front of friends and families. The Red Rocket , as he is popularly known , can perhaps buy himself a car now. He still commutes ( see photo ) to ACC every game day.

The Raps lost the battle of the boards 32-36 , the 3 pt. shot shooting 23%-42% and were completely outplayed in the 4th quarter after battling a slim 27 - 30 halftime deficit.

Toronto's winning streak was halted to 2.

Green's Antics Angers Chuck

American Idol booted out its youngest male hopeful - Kevin Covais .A lot of people were saddened when it was announced that Kevin otherwise known as Chicken Little got the least number of votes .

One other teenager got a lot of votes at least from the hometown crowd. In the game last night between the Raptors and Celtics , Gerald Green , the youngster playing for Boston , got a last second alley hoop pass from Tony Allen for a dunk. It was an excellent display of athleticism , except to Raptors' broadcasting team and members of the visiting team . With the outcome a foregone conclusion and only a few seconds left in the game , players from the Boston are expected to waste away the time without attempting a basket until the buzzer ending the game sounds. Chuck Swirsky was furious when Green did his thing . ' Wait 'til Boston is in Toronto ' , Chuck said. it ( antics ) will not be forgotten ' he added.

My feeling about that kind of thing is it's totally tasteless--unless it's an incredibly sweet dunk. In that case I say Amen.
