Toronto does have a really good bench, I'll give them that much.  I'm just not sure it'll matter all that much once the playoffs start.

We've got guys playing right now that shouldn't ever see a minute of action under normal circumstances.

Well with most teams, their bench is a def step down in talent and production.  With Toronto their bench has been super important to their team.  I don't know why they would make a big change once they hit the  playoffs?  They need to play those guys.

Sure, but their bench players will be playing against other team's starters much more often than they have in the regular season.  They won't have the same impact.  The biggest value there will be keeping their starters a bit fresher.

That was a really dumb foul by Lowry.

Toronto is playing really aggressive on D.  Borderline fouling us on every possession.

If Nader is guarding you, you are going to score.
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

13 TOs for the C's --- 8 Raptors steals.

well so much for the good start by the C's.

Refs aren't calling anything against Toronto.  They are getting away with a lot of fouling.
That isn't helping.

29 to 11 quarter so far.  The way this is going we just might have a Xavier Silas sighting tonight.

Pierce: "I called game."

One of the worst quarters of the year.

They need to regroup.
