Wizards Ready for the Raptors, Or Are They?
Yes, it was not pretty the last time DC took a visit to Toronto. Game 44 against the Raptors was the worst loss of the season for the Wizards….to date. 122-83 was the final. The Raps were up 10-0 in the game before I knew it; from there, they didn’t look back, aided by a 21-5 2nd quarter run.
In the previous Wizards game (#43) against the Raptors, which happened to be at home in DC the night before the above game, we were treated to this quote by Steve Buckhantz, except much louder: “Noooo!!!! It’s not possible!!!!!”
Why? Well, just watch below:
Hey, at least the Wiz won that one, thus, preventing horrible, horrible nightmares about the Raptors for the rest of my life. This clip expands on the reasoning.
Before that, the Wiz beat a Chris Bosh-less Raptors in game 17.
The good news tonight? Chris Bosh isn’t expected back any time soon.
And hopefully, the Wiz upping their record against Toronto this season to 3-1 will piss off this Canadian blogger….as I had a big problem with him after match-up #2 between these two teams.
I enjoyed the Mike Wise column about the Lock Smith DeShawn Stevenson in today’s Washington Post. It made me happy to have Stevenson on the team and proud that his maturity has progressed. Although, he still has some evident hills to climb.
In other news….Caron Butler is still being careful with his hip like an old lady trying to take a shower in Florida. Nothing ground-breaking in this Washington Post story by Ivan Carter.
The perpetual pessimistic Tom Knott writes a surprisingly optimistic column in the Washington Times, “Agent Shows Zero Signs of Departing.” Welcome to the bandwagon Tom, as pretty much everyone else thinks Gilbert will remain a Wizard (it’s a numbers thing). Where does the line start again?
Here’s to making my Friday with a win – see you around the live blog.
