Early Christmas Gifts - RAPTORS 98, NETS 92

RAPS 98, NETS 92
Last night marked the return of a few familiar faces, former Raptors coach, Sam Mitchell, former Raptor, Kris Humphries, but it also marked the return of a few starters in Jose Calderon and Andrea Bargnani.  After a brutal loss against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday, Jay Triano got a few early Christmas gifts with the return of his starting point guard Jose Calderon and leading scorer, Andrea Bargnani, who had 32 points and 9 boards including this "THUNDEROUS SLAM....OH MY!":

The Raps outlasted the Nets in the final quarter, going on a late run.  Leandro Barbosa iced the game with a three ball with just 15 seconds to play.  Jose Calderon had a double double in his return with 15 points and 14 assists.  Linas Kleiza started in place of Sonny Weems and also had a double double with his 18 points and 12 boards.

For New Jersey, Brook Lopez led the Nets with 20 points.  Former Raptor, Kris Humphries had 12 points and 12 boards.


  • The #3 pick of the 2010 draft, Derrick Favors, had 8 points and 4 boards
  • Raps outrebounded the Nets 43-39
  • Kleiza's 12 boards were a career high
  • Ed Davis Watch: 0 pts, 6 boards
  • Jerryd Bayless had a quiet night with 2 pts and 2 boards
  • Young Onez Watch: Amir 6 pts, 6 fouls in 21 minutes, DeMar 14 pts, Sonny - DNP
