Raptors Devour Nuggets.

It was a massacre of epic proportion last night as Toronto waylaid Denver , 121 - 94. The fancied duo of Carmelo Anthony and Alan Iverson failed to deliver this time. They combined for a mere 24 points as they succumbed to poor shooting . The whole Denver team had a dismal shooting missing its first 12 shots. This coupled by a tight Raptors' defense spelled doom for the Nuggets who felled by as much as 38 points in the 1st half. ' Never in my wildest dream did I think our defense was as good as it was ' said coach Sam Mitchell after the game. Never in my wildest dream that Jorge Garbajosa will score all his 21 of his career high 22 points in the 1st half ! Never in my wildest dream that Mo Petterson will come back from the dead and topscored for the Raptors ! Never .
The game was without some fanfare. In the 3rd quarter, Reggie Evans' questionable contact with Chris Bosh twisted the ankle of the Raptors' main guy forcing Bosh to sit out the rest of the game. Fast forward the 4th quarter . Rasho Nestorovich was called for a flagrant foul on Evans. ' That was no basketball foul ' Evans said .' He had his fist balled up. That let me know he did it on purpose '. Maybe . Rasho who called Evans a little bit dirty may just doing a tit for tat . Like it's payback time . In any case, if Reggie was mad at Rasho for what he's done to him , why did he not retaliate immediately ? Why did he not yank out Rasho's balls like he did to Clipper Chris Kaman ? Aha , Reggie is afraid of the much bigger Rasho. He just chickened out . Reggie is one chickened Nugget !
Ok. You'll be like Reggie !

Evans is a pansy...who would have thought Nesterovic had that in him? we still need a bad ass on this team in the mold of Oakley (danny fortson maybe?). i really have nothing to say about last nights game except that it would be great if this new found...whatever is was...continues. greatest regular season Raptors game I have ever seen.

Denver is a team in search of an identity.It's a good team one game and a lousy team the next game.Maybe Karl has lost his touch.

when exactly did karl have a touch? i mean, he's a good coach, but not a savior by any stretch of the imagination. i expected much more from this team, even before they got iverson.
