So I go to the game with a bunch of westerners last night - Biscuit, PJ and Cal. God bless Biscuit for recognizing he was going to drive home. I tried to explain that the Raptors were on a bit of a roll. I predicted Bargnani would score his points early and we would win. I was a little more impressed with Andrea's defense last night - he wasn't taking the easy way by switching off when he got picked. I loved the crowd embracing Reggie Evan's career high 22 rebound performance.
Jerryd Bayless made a decent first appearance. After missing his first two shots, he confidently nailed a couple of 3 balls. The other Raptor who really impressed me was Leandro Barbosa who seemed to drive to the basket at will.
Thanks to MLSE for hosting us last night -a ton of fun.
Turkey day in the U.S. today so I'll celebrate by taking the afternoon off and cheering all the visitors to cover the spreads - yes Cinci will cover versus the very lucky Jets
