yeah, what a game...i was fortunate enough to attend my first ever raptors playoff game tonight...the building was rockin, at halftime they had the nike trick squad & as noted already the almighty eh Dee was on fire...keon had a sweet sweet dunk...davis was power slammin down everywhere...chris childs was in total control...good defence & hustle by jyd...got a little close in the 4th, but the raptors pulled away for a comfortable win...i'm thinking game 5 in detroit for all the marbles...
& although i would have a tough time justifying the ticket cost, it was well worth it tonight...
I take full responsibility for this great win. I was channeling all my positive energy towards these guys.
BS aside, that was simply an amazing game. Precisely how a team should play. Just when you thought the Pistons were making a run near the end the Raps SHUT 'EM DOWN! Way to go boys. Playoff basketball rocks!
All 5 Raptors starters had double digit scoring numbers and their intensity on defense was incredible. This game would have been a blowout but for some crazy three point shooting by Atkins, Barry [some has to start a BALLLLLLLLDY chant at Game 4....that guy is a prick] and Jones.
AD, what can you say? He was a warrior last night.
Can the Raptors continue to feed off the incredible energy from their fans? Can they maintain that same defensive intensity? Will they be able to neutralize Stackhouse again?
If they win tomorrow night, a road trip to Auburn Hills will be booked for Thursday night
