McGrady with the shoutout to Chris Bosh

After the Pistons' romp of the Toronto Raptors 115-93 last night, Tracy McGrady had a funny post game quote, calling out Chris Bosh for selling out the city of Toronto.

But really Toronto, why are we still booing T-Mac?

LA's Second Unit Defeats the Raps - LAKERS 120, RAPTORS 110

LAKERS 120, RAPS 110
The "oohs" and "ahhhhs" came out for Kobe Bryant in Toronto on Sunday afternoon as the Lakers defeated the Raps at the ACC.  But Kobe only had to play 28 minutes as the Lakers second unit took care of business.  Andrew Bynum had 16 points and Matt Barnes (who almost landed on the Toronto Raptors during the offseason) finished with 12 points and 9 boards off of the Lakers' bench.

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!":

A Few Fashionable Canadian Ballers - The Miami Heat Intro

Looks like a couple of Canuck ballers (and one former Toronto Raptor) are big time now that they're playing down in South Beach. Check out Jamaal Magloire, Joel Anthony and Chris Bosh in the Miami Heat intro (just in case you haven't seen it yet)

Did you turn off the TV at the half? RAPTORS 120, PISTONS 116

RAPS 120 , PISTONS 116
The Raps are supposed to outright win games like this.  But the Raps were so sloppy in the first half that it didn't look like they would even have a chance to win tonight's game.  The Pistons came out gunning and  flat out dominated the Raptors in the first half.  Toronto had 11 early turnovers midway through the second quarter while the Pistons had just one turnover as the Raps allowed 72 points by the half.  This one started out ugly and most Raps fans had already changed the channel at that point.

Oh, Those Home Rims - KNICKS 113, RAPS 110

KNICKS 113, RAPS 110
In a rematch from last Sunday's matchup between the Knicks and the Raptors, Toronto came prepared to put out a better effort than last Sunday.  And they did, Andrea Bargnani had a career night but it wasn't enough to defeat the New York Knicks.  Il Mago scored a career-high 41 points to go along with his 7 points and 6 rebounds in the 113-110 loss, putting the Raps to 3rd in the Atlantic with a 8-14 record.  Amare Stoudemire led the charge in the finals minutes (five fouls and all) scoring 8 of his 34 points in the final three minutes.  But the final shot was what mattered most as Raymond Felton nailed a ridiculous three-pointer that had the lucky bounce (or I should say bounces) with just 2.7 seconds to play.

Even though Amir Johnson had a career game against the Knicks on Sunday afternoon, Amare Stoudemire was just too much for the Raptors.  Amare Stoudemire was beasting for the New York Knicks, scoring 31 points and pulling down 16 boards as the Knicks cruised to a 116-99 victory.   Amir Johnson had an impressive performance with a season-high 22 points and career 16 boards for the Raps.  The Raps relied on the second unit to keep them in this one but couldn't close in on the Knicks.  New York was hot from the three ball range, knocking down 12 threes that kept the Raps out of it.

Quiet Thunder - RAPTORS 111, THUNDER 99

 written by Ryan Dickison

Prior to Friday’s game, the Raptors had won four of their last five at home. Oklahoma City, hadn't lost to an Eastern Conference team away from home since March 21 of last season. Fortunately for the Raptors, Oklahoma was without the league’s top scorer Kevin Durant, who missed his second straight game with a sprained left knee.

HHJ & HHN present "Jay Triano Needs a Swear Jar"

So far this season, we've seen Jay Triano drop a couple of expletives in post game press conferences when the Raps put out a poor effort. We think it's time Jay Triano had a swear jar.

Third Quarter Pizza - RAPTORS 127, WIZARDS 108

The Raps started off with a 72-point first half.  You read that right, 72 points. 

Raptors' fans then had free pizza at the end of the third.

The End.
