TORONTO -- Carlos Boozer scored a season-high 36 points but despite leading by 19 points during the third quarter the Chicago Bulls needed overtime to defeat the Toronto Raptors 107-105 Wednesday before a crowd of 18,674 at Air Canada Centre. Luol Deng hit an 18-foot pull-up jumper with 3.3 seconds to snap a tie and give the Bulls their hard-earned win. But not until the Raptors had one more chance when Jose Calderon missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer. Boozer scored two of his points in overtime and finished with 12 rebounds and three assists. Deng added 19 points with seven assists while Joakim Noah had 16 points and 14 rebounds and Richard Hamilton 15 points and Marco Belinelli had 10 for the Bulls. Reserve forward Alan Anderson scored 27 points before fouling out in overtime to lead the Raptors, who lost their third game in a row. Kyle Lowry added 26 points and seven assists after coming off the bench and DeMar DeRozan contributed 18 points. Ed Davis had 11 points while...
BEST OF MAXIM
Carlos Boozer has been considered a constant disappointment since he signed a massive contract with the Chicago Bulls in the summer of 2010. He has showed flashes of former brilliance, but has been horribly inconsistent and has been given constant scrutiny from Bulls’ fans. He was supposed to be the Bulls’ long needed go-to player in the post, but he has failed to live up to...
posted by Romy AquinoDon't get mad Raps fans. Kevin Durant was on the Dan Patrick Show today and a little Toronto Raptors shoutout came up in the interview. Apparently, when asked what team he wanted to play for growing up, it was the Toronto Raptors. Why? Mostly because of Vince Carter and because he liked those jerseys. Yep, those old school purples with the red dinosaur...
Kyle Lowry dominated in just 15 minutes tonight. The Toronto Raptors point guard sprained his ankle in the first half and wasn't expected to return. But Lowry gutted out the fourth quarter and finished with 21 points (5-7 FG and 7-7 FT), four three-pointers, two assists and a rebound in just 15 minutes in the losing effort.
Lowry's status is up in the air for Wednesday...
posted by Romy AquinoSooo.....the Raptors have lost three straight including a close one against the Bulls, the Bucks and another tough loss against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Aaron Gray got the start against the Nets and the centre who averages 2.1 ppg....threw down a vicious dunk that got the Raptors bench to geek out hard. Check it out.We love this dunk so much.....
The Toronto Raptors have arguably been one of the worst NBA franchises in the past decade finishing fourth or less in the Atlantic Division six times since they joined the 2004-2005 seasons and averaging a 0.407 wining percentage. Currently, the team is in last place in the Atlantic division with a 14-25 record–11 games back from first place.
Fans have criticized Toronto’s management...
Last night's Chicago Bulls/Atlanta Hawks game wasn't exactly the greatest game of professional basketball but it did feature an impressive slam dunk by Bulls forward Taj Gibson.Watch as Taj rises up in the third quarter of play to throw down a hammer and get Bulls analyst Stacey King to drop one of his hilarious lines:
Raptors rookie Terrence Ross only had four points in Tuesday night’s match up against the Brooklyn Nets. But the reverse putback dunk that was responsible for a pair of those points, was a thing of beauty.
Whose in this year’s dunk contest? Gerald Green? Paul George? WOuld Terrence Ross be someone you want to see on the “All-Star Saturday Night” stage?
