@ TOR: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

November 13, 2012
tags: ,

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Raptors HQ.

I really like these guys. They’re as cool as the Raptors’ TV announcers, who are the best in the biz in my opinion.

Curious to see how Bargs does tonight
He should have an advantage of the Jazz’ less-mobile bigs and has played better minus Lowry.

yep he gets a break with favors on the 2nd unit

Alec Burks
Falling out of Utah’s rotation… maybe the Raptors could go after him?
by BP. on Nov 12, 2012 7:00 PM EST

Would love that.
by Adam Francis on Nov 12, 2012 7:00 PM EST

really fear Al Jefferson is going to rape our front-line. Jonas, Amir and Andrea would all struggle guarding him I’m afraid.

ty corbin

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHA

LULZ LULZ LULZ LULZ

by sickflow on Nov 12, 2012 7:19 PM EST

same here
think he could become a special player
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 7:20 PM EST

good game good game
unfortunately 2nd unit will have to play sooner or later
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 7:20 PM EST


Favors
could grab every rebound tonight. I mean EVERY single reb
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 7:30 PM EST

Was just thinking that.
by Adam Francis on Nov 12, 2012 7:33 PM EST

Kleiza
Looks good, don’t fall in love with the jumper.
by y2v on Nov 12, 2012 7:48 PM EST

have you met Kleiza?
He has already fallen in love with that jumper, and cheated on it with another jumper.
by Shalax23 on Nov 12, 2012 7:50 PM EST

Every time Klieza plays…
he plays hard and he plays well..why is he not in our rotation?
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 7:54 PM EST

because he doesn’t always play well?
by Shalax23 on Nov 12, 2012 7:55 PM EST

Kleiza
on fire
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 7:56 PM EST


DAMN! Heywood on Demar
that’s what you get when you dont go up strong with his athletic abilities
by teedotaj on Nov 12, 2012 8:03 PM EST

heyward..
by teedotaj on Nov 12, 2012 8:03 PM EST

hayward…
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 8:04 PM EST

Hayward with a capital H
by teedotaj on Nov 12, 2012 8:05 PM EST

Hayward
He’s really good, feel like his D is underrated because he’s white.
by y2v on Nov 12, 2012 8:03 PM EST

Halftime Thoughts
You know something, that wasn’t too bad!
Not much D going on as both clubs are shooting over 50%, but solid effort by the Raps, and good execution on O. Doesn’t hurt that Bargs and Kleiza (17 points) have it going so far, and guys like DeRozan and Valanciunas are making solid contributions.
by Adam Francis on Nov 12, 2012 8:07 PM EST

Kleiza has 17!?
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 8:08 PM EST

Favors Kanter
Really tough matchup for us downlow
by y2v on Nov 12, 2012 8:55 PM EST

man Favors is a problem…
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:12 PM EST

Love watching him play.
by Adam Francis on Nov 12, 2012 9:13 PM EST


AL JEFFERSON?!
by sickflow on Nov 12, 2012 9:25 PM EST

We got 2.2 to win it
by y2v on Nov 12, 2012 9:25 PM EST

typical Al Jefferson three
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 9:25 PM EST

Lolz
by y2v on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

Good thing they had him out there instead of Hayward
by y2v on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

2nd three of his career
by Shalax23 on Nov 12, 2012 9:25 PM EST

not even kidding.
That is the second three pointer of his career
by Shalax23 on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

fk..
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

of all the shooters, in all the arenas around the world… the Raps run into an Al Jefferson clutch 3.
by Not so Friendly Stranger on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

BIG AL ALWAYS GETS US!
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

WHAT THE HELL
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

That man is the Raptor Killer.
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

Me thinks its almost time for some manly tears.
by yellowalman on Nov 12, 2012 9:26 PM EST

And OT…
by Adam Francis on Nov 12, 2012 9:28 PM EST


the basketball gods hate us
by xUnKnOwNx on Nov 12, 2012 9:29 PM EST

Al Jefferson and Paul Milsap both make 3’s …
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:37 PM EST

it is obvious
we can’t win this one
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 9:38 PM EST

by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 9:43 PM EST

Dont even go there……
by yellowalman on Nov 12, 2012 9:44 PM EST

by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:44 PM EST

Damn it.
by lsheiner on Nov 12, 2012 9:45 PM EST

Looks like another double overtime. Ugh.
by sickflow on Nov 12, 2012 9:45 PM EST

Big Al
is so good in low post
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 9:46 PM EST

baffles me
that hayward goes in only as a defensive specialist for Utah…
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 9:52 PM EST


Oh my lord, Millsap again
by Adam Francis on Nov 12, 2012 9:55 PM EST

thats how u know this is not our game lol
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:55 PM EST

Milsap is killing us with 3’s?!
by rainmann on Nov 12, 2012 9:55 PM EST

Every single Utah starter has at least one 3 ball. When’s the last time that’s happened in a game?
by BP. on Nov 12, 2012 9:57 PM EST

YEAHHHHHHH
I LOVE YOU JOHN LUCAS
by lsheiner on Nov 12, 2012 10:04 PM EST

The Paper Boy delivers some more bad news for the Raptors.
by BP. on Nov 12, 2012 10:15 PM EST

He missed a 3!!! #SmallVictories
by yellowalman on Nov 12, 2012 10:18 PM EST

someone is going to die on the court tomorrow…
by Jenge on Nov 12, 2012 10:20 PM EST

Can’t believe we lost this one.
by sickflow on Nov 12, 2012 10:19 PM EST

was very clear to me after big Al’s three actually
by TFC Academy on Nov 12, 2012 10:21 PM EST

The rolling around the rim just added insult to injury.
by sickflow on Nov 12, 2012 10:22 PM EST

thought that only happened in bad basketball movies

    nice to see hayward getting some recognition instead of the usual dribble on him looking 12 years old. although, i really like how no one realizes he’s the defender that he is. it makes it so much sweeter when he swats a shot.

    • November 14, 2012 12:35 am

      ughhh… i meant drivel. too much basketball on the mind!

      • November 14, 2012 7:56 am

        That’s one of my favorite things about him, the way he sneaks up on opponents who have no idea he can play the way he can.

    It’s nice to read a thread where the fans aren’t just ripping our players. This one is respectful and it’s a breath of fresh air!

    • November 14, 2012 4:13 pm

      Agreed. It’s such a nice change of pace. These fans are great.
