Raps Teach The Celts A Lesson .

Toronto reached the .500 mark for the 1st time in 4 years by beating Boston, 96 - 90 . The victory was fashioned with 13 3 pointers with Anthony Parker making 7 of 8 three pointers. Parker finished with 23 points . ' That Tony Parker is a Celtics killer ' said Tommy Heinsohn of the Celtics' TV . The Raptors play unselfish ball althroughout the game . They have 27 assists with only 8 turnovers. It was fun to watch the Raps passed the ball 4 or 5 times before shooting . Beautiful basketball .One writer called it the hot potato game . For Jose Calderon , it's hot tamales , Senor !
Except for a brief time in the 4th quarter when the Raps relinguished the lead , they are in total control of the game . I feel like they were in cruise control until they decided to tightened their defense and shut down the Celts . Even Chris Bosh (26 pts. 8 reb.) has 1 rebound only early in the game but end up collaring just about every rebound late in the game. That's the mark of a good team . Switch it on to turn the heat against the other team and the game is over. ' They have Bosh who if double teamed can find the open man ' said Celtics coach Doc Rivers . ' Jefferson still has to learn that '. Really . Doc , your team still has to learn how to win !





Doc Rivers : ..and I still has to learn how to coach !

The Raps just played enough to win . Maybe they are reserving some of their energy for today's game.
