View From The Opposing Bench: Raptors Republic

Don’t let that artist’s rendering of the Toronto Raptors fool you.  These Raptors can dunk zee basketball.  Guys like DeMar “DeDunk” DeRozan and Amir Johnson are high fliers certainly capable of throwing the ball through the hoop with authority.  Now let’s explore what the Raptors don’t do very well.

Here’s a short list:

  • score efficiently
  • rebound offensively
  • block shots
  • play fast paced

Guess what the Celtics’ don’t do well?  All of the above.  The Raptors and the Celtics are pretty comparable this season.  Two things the Celtics have going for them:  they can shoot the deep ball and  haven’t lost to Washington.  Toronto can not check off either feat.

WHAT IT MEANS TO THE C’s

I am going to go out on a limb and say the Celtics need to blow the Raptors out tonight.  Not just for their win total.  Not just so everyone will stop talking about major overhauls.  The Celtics need a blow out win to remember what success feels like.  This group has felt a lot of success over the last four years and very few stretches of sustatined suck.  With that in mind, a single-digit win over a Raptors with only 3/5th’s of their starting rotation isn’t going to make the lockerroom any more inviting to meek part-time journalists.

Celtics’ fans should watch this Raptors team with caution.  The Raps have tried to build through the draft and through free agency and have hovered south of .500 for much of their existence.  The C’s may be facing some tough decisions this season but luckily, those don’t need to be made tonight.

Celtics 105, Raptors 82

    Halftime while we are up by 6, the bench of Toronto is winning 18 to 7. We have got to get some scoring off the bench.

      We can breathe now, the losing streak is over. Rondo was a +24 tonight. Whew, Ray was a +24 too even though he only scored 6pts.
