Raptors Beat Spurs And Win NBA Championshi....

Not quite. At least the victory stopped the continuous slide of the Raps starting with the loss to Portland. And TO did it with a gigantic victory over reigning NBA champs, the San Antonio Spurs, 83-73. The 6 day rest gave the Raptors' coaching staff much needed time to plot the team's strategy especially versus the deadly duo of Tim Duncan and Eva Longra... I mean Tony Parker. Even former Spurs great and current TV man Sam Elliot was expecting a rustier Raptors but was surprised its the other way around. ' Tony should be pushing the ball ' Elliot repeatedly said especially in the 2nd half of the game. Parker seemed slow last night as if his body was still in plaster (right photo) And all the pushings were done by the Raps especially on Tim Duncan by Andrea Bargnani and Kris Humphries. ' I do care about us not being physical ' Spurs' coach Popovich* said of the lame efforts by his team. Why even the ref almost got physical with his team. One ref went chest to chest with Matt Bonner before giving the ex Raptors a ' t ' last night. ' I don't agree with the ref doing that ' said Elliot of the official's actuation. Hah ! I'm sure the refs still remember the Tim Duncan-Joey Crawford incident that led to their fellow ref getting banned from officiating in the NBA . After that Duncan got his ' t ' to make it 4 technicals in all aside from 2 gotten earlier by their coach. No smiling especially no taunting from 'ya all Spurs . Don't ya all know that refs are like that Siberian tiger that mauled 3 teenagers in San Fran Zoo recently. That's why refs and tigers both have stripes !


*Tim to Tony : Physical ? Let me give you a physical exam , Tony . Your right ear is dirty !
Tony : That's not dirt. That's Eva's chewing gum left there last night.

Probably the lamest game for the spurs ever... And the Raptors are somehow lucky with their shots.. and the refs are crazy for throwing T's

elliot is one of the worst commentators in the league. i actually mute the tv when i watch spur games he commentates...so boring.

i'll take the win, but why can't the raps do this every game? makes no sense.
