    Key Match UP


    Kyle Lowry v. Brandon Knight

    MHC TAKE:

    After dropping a tough game in Charlotte on Wednesday night, the Raps will look to bounce back when they visit the Detroit Pistons tonight. Not many teams have struggled more than the Raptors to open the season but the Pistons would qualify as one of those teams. Detroit has struggled this year to put up points as they are currently ranked 25th in the league in scoring per game. Toronto will need to get out to quick start and avoid any need for any late comebacks. The key to this one has to be free throws as the Raptors continue to struggle from the charity stripe and need to improve on an are that was once a team strength.

    Go Raptors

    wow... he is the only one I wouldn't vote for. He was probably tempted to trade Jose before the season started and if he had we would have been screwed when Lowry went down with the injury.

    I thought people on here were optimistic going into this season. How can it be BC's fault if everyone on here agreed with the moves he made and thought he put a good team together?

    I think you are correct, preseason it seems on paper BC made some decent moves but now with the 3-9 record, it's understandable that most are jumping off the bandwagon.

    In my case, I will give him until 2/15/13. I expect him to make another big move with the assets that he have.

    Some are assessing the whole body of work and they are not happy.

    I admit to being one of those fans that often thinks the moves he makes are good, until they don't turn out so well. But that is understandable from a fans standpoint. He's the GM that is supposed to look beyond what might sound good on paper and build a good team.

    So much has hinged on Lowry's health this season so far, and I agree with what Bob said elsewhere, that our win total is only 2 wins lower than I expected at this point.

    It's always that way. People all get excited about the moves when they happen and then get really disappointed in the GM when they don't work out perfectly.

    (Just wait until Johnson or Reyes goes down with an injury or they don't play up to expectations for the Jays!!)

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Hey chums, why play the blame game? I think we should have a poll asking who's going to be the biggest in turning our season around. I honestly like what I've been seeing the past few games, minus the 12-minute stints (first or fourth quarter) where we've been playing high school ball.

    I'll take the blame for the losses. Sorry, Mates, won't let it happen again.

    LET'S GO RAPS!!

    Refs haven't helped but the players still had the opportunities and we didn't get it done. Lowry's injury really hurt us.

    Please we cannot lose this. Might as well give up on the season if we can't beat the Pistons.

    Pistons may think like Charlotte that this is one they can get. We should all start to realize you can only realistically make hay if stay close to pack and right now we are bottom feeders. It is not too early to panic...our season is going to be over before we hit the first quarter mark of season.
