RAPS 109, WIZ 104
The Raps got their chance to see the new-look Washington Wizards on Saturday night.  The Wiz had a few new faces like Josh Howard, Al Thornton and James Singleton on the roster, who were acquired at the trade deadline, but the team looked alright even without their former stars Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler.  The Raps were without Chris Bosh once again but Jarret Jack stepped up and took care of business at home.  Jack helped close out the Wizards in the fourth quarter, where he scored 11 of his 23 points.

Bosh Does Dallas

CB4 didn't let his hometown Dallas fans down.  Bosh hit two clutch free throws down the stretch to put the East up two after the game was knotted at 139. The made free throws turned out to be the game winners as Bosh put up his best All-Star performance to date with 23 points and 10 rebounds. 

He did it on a huge stage, with over 108,000 in attendance at the new Dallas Cowboys stadium.

Episode Summary:  It's the NBA All-Star Break and the homies from Hoop Heads North and Hip Hoop Junkies are at it again, grading the Toronto Raptors' first half using All-Star Dunk Contest grading.

Fans Let DeMar Dunk

It wasn't too flashy, it wasn't too exciting but DeMar did what he needed to do to get past the LA Clippers' Eric Gordon during the Dunk-In at halftime of last night's Rookie-Sophmore game.  DeMar kept his cards close and didn't show too much as he's likely saving the goodies for Saturday night.  Big ups to DeMar!

Talkin' Hoops with Ray Bala aka @CanBallReport of

If you need your weekly fix on all things about Canadian basketball, Ray Bala (aka @canballreport on Twitter) will provide just that.  The dude does his thing, keeping the internet hoop heads informed on where the Canadians are playing in the NCAA, what's happening in the CIS and even what's happening with the Canadian PBL teams (i.e. my hometown Halifax Rainmen).  I had the chance to speak with Ray on his love for Canadian basketball, his thoughts on the Raptors and a little bit about his sneaker love.
