LINE: 16 pts (6-11), 10 ast, 4 reb
No Deron Williams, no Brook Lopez and you would think that this would a game that the Raps would have taken control of. Well, not when Tank Nation intervenes. The Raptors got whooped in the second half by guys like Kris Humpries and yes, Gerald Green (who scored 26 points). The one of only a few bright spots for the Raps was Bayless, who put up Calderon numbers: 16 points and 10 dimes. Here's to the lottery!
POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: JAMES JOHNSON
LINE: 16 pts (6-10), 4 reb, 4 blk
This was Johnson's first double digit scoring game in four contests as him and Bayless were the only two guys that got it done on the offensive end. Bargnani had a quiet game, scoring just 10 pts on 4-13 shooting.
POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE: 12 pts, 5 reb, 2 stl
Outside of Johnson and Bayless, it's hard to choose which other guy brought it on Wednesday night. DeRozan had 12 points on 5-15 shooting. Overall, this game was a forgettable performance.
SHOUTOUTS TO THE NETS:
LINE: 16 pts (7-18), 21 reb, 3 ast, 3 stl, 3 blk
Hump was doing his best Dwight Howard against the Raps, grabbing 21 boards and getting it done on defense with three steals and three blocks. Hell, you would even think that Gerald Green was Lebron James out there, dropping 26 points on the Raps going 9-13 from the floor and 7-9 from the line.
