raps nets tonight was by far the best game of the year so far.. anyone who watched it knows why... vince and bosh were so good... and devin harris and calderon had great games as well... the game ended on a oop play from out of bounds to vince carter in ot... carter also sent the game into ot with a sick three. thoughts?

calderon made a big mistake on that one, he didn't switch properly which made him a couple steps late on VC.....that play was designed for VC, but not for an alley oop like that, it only happened coz calderon still followed dooling which was the job for parker.....

calderons defense seems to suck

his eyes got stuck on the ball while following dooling, parker was already on dooling.....his eyes got stuck and left VC wide open.....

What a game I am still on such a high from it right now. When VC hit that 3 to tie it and send it to OT I almost crapped myself. How do you like him now Toronto?!!

That might start something lol, I watched it under Toronto broadcast and the play by play guys like him, just the fans really hate the guy....

I'd take Bosh any day of the century. Bosh comes to play every night. Vince is, well ... Vince. Not really that impressed. He wins a game when he gets the hell booed out of him. Meh. Now he'll take a few games off or come up with an injury. :shrug: Waning years of a disappointing career.

You guys had a good game tonight. The Raptors pretty much collapsed and JO went down with an injury, leaving VC some easy buckets.

I haven't seen every game the last 4 years but I also haven't heard much good about him (other than from Nets fans) during that time. He hasn't turned into the impact player he was hyped to be. He's not even at All Star level any more. I don't think he has the drive or courage to be great.

amazing game,lots raptors fans need to grow up and realise its a world where players get what they want,why would carter want to stay in tdot where he wasted so many years...he was fed up with the horrible GM and coaching, he put up with it for a while and everyone has there limits right... im a huge raptors fan, VC was and STILL is one of my fav players today. the guys amazing-toronto's GM's ****ed up not VC entirely...id welcome back vince easy anytime,

Didnt get to see the game, but I would think the Blazers-Rockets, and Spurs-Wolves are candidates as well for this..

i saw both games and i think this game is still the best byfar. not just cuz i'm from toronto but seriously the atmosphere was amazing, and there were so many clutch shots and back and forth basketball it was ridiculous.

plus, the VC/raptors fans rival so you know.. haha

I think the fact that VC won the game had alot to do it with....And he won it on a dunk, a skill he's known for doing it for Toronto....then there's that game tying 3 to end the 4th quarter that led to overtime.....It's dramatic coz VC did it a few years back against the Raps also, another game they should've won.....

If O'neal doesn't go down in the 3rd the Raps would have won this game.

No doubt.

Yeah. He killed us in the 4th and OT because we really didn't have a shot blocker to intimidate him.

A skill he notoriously swore off of doing while in Toronto because "Dunking is overrated".

For those aren't sure entirly why Raptors fans hate Vince- here is a good run-down:

I was at the game last night... fantastic to be at... and I just knew Vince would hit the 3 at the end of regulation and make a play at the end of OT for the win.

The crowd was awesome last night. I think that the whole booing Carter and 'VC sucks' is more out of fun now than actual hate for the guy. I took part in both.... and it just adds a different dynamic to the game. For the first 3 quarters it wasn't that loud and crazy... but when Vince went off in the 4th and pulled out his usual heroics the chanting and cheering was amazing.

I love Carters interview after... 'this is still my house!'

Damn... no doubt.

We're only about 14 games in, there'll probably be a better game this season.

It was amazing to watch but ended with terrible defense.
