Portland Trail Blazers
On the season Andrea Bargnani has given you this so far: 16 ppg/4.3 rpg/1.4 apg/.398 FG/.828 FT/.7 bpg/.6 spg/1.4 3pm and a few kicks in your ass. Wait, what? I didn’t mean to say that last part, I blame my fingers, they are out of control. Honestly, I really can’t control my fingers sometimes, it’s anarchy! Last night our buddy Andrea went down and out with a left belbow injury, or elbow if you want to be all technical about it. X-rays were negative and he’s day to day so maybe he’ll miss a game or three, maybe not. If he does, go ahead and grab yourself some Ed Davis so you can be disappointed. Or maybe grab somes Amir Johnson, he’ll disappoint you too but at least he’ll disappoint you while not killing your FG, said Bargnani! I also expect Jonas Valanciunas to breath some new life so go ahead and grab him ahead of the other two if Andrea is to miss any time. Anyway, back in October after I had Andrea ranked number 19 in my Top 25 Power Forwards for 2012 post, a reader (thanks for...

Andrea Bargnani has spent his whole career with the Toronto Raptors. Since being selected with the first overall pick in the 2006 draft, he’s continued to improve year after year. He’s had his injury issues, but the fact that his stats kept getting up had to be encouraging.
But his scoring numbers peaked in the 2010-11 season where he averaged 21.4 points per game. This season...

Not sure what it is about the Toronto Raptors, but when players go there, they go there to die. Nothing good comes out of that place. They really need to move that squad back to the USA. Check out this weird ejection of power forward Amir Johnson last night. The Raptors were taking on the Portland Trail Blazers and J.J. Hickson was on the free throw line. After his first...
Everyone has already seen the video of Toronto Raptors’ forward, Amir Johnson not sharing the ball with a referee and throwing a temper tantrum like a kid at Toys R Us. What was he thinking? If there is one rule in sports, it is that you do not tough the refs. It does not matter if he makes a bad call, says something annoying or refuses to give back your ball. Seriously this was...
The NBA suspended Toronto forward Amir Johnson for one game without pay for tossing his mouthpiece at a referee during a game. Johnson was to sit out the Raptors' home game Wednesday night against Brooklyn after the league handed down the suspension late Tuesday night. Losing the game check will cost Johnson approximately $73,000. The incident occurred Monday night during...
Not much for choices from Sunday’s six-game slate, but Blake Griffin did scale the back of Linas Kleiza for a pretty nasty follow jam off of a Chris Paul miss. The fact that Kleiza wasn’t looking takes away from the play as a posterization, but with no other nominees, Griffin wins by default.
It’s a shame Blake didn’t convert on his left-handed attempt over Jonas Valanciunas...

The Big Leagues If a mouthpiece gets tossed during a forgettable game between the Toronto Raptors and the Portland Trail Blazers, does anyone notice?
Since the Toronto Raptors haven't had the greatest start to their season, we've haven't heard much from rookie Terrence Ross.During tonight's Raptors/Nets game, Ross got a steal and decided to throw down a nasty-one handed jam in the mug of Marshon Brooks:
Easy part of the schedule?
The Portland Trail Blazers opened the 2012-13 season against playoff hopefuls and perennial contenders in their first six games. This was supposed to the easy part of their schedule, yet they’re just 4-6 since that “easy” part of their schedule began Nov. 12.
Matchup: Portland (8-12) vs. Toronto Raptors (4-16)
Venue: Rose Garden Arena
