Since I’m a Toronto Raptors fan (pause for laughter), it feels good that someone outside of Canada recognizes that they have played well since the Rudy Gay trade. However, I’m not as confident as Morris Chestnut seems to be that the Raptors will be the team to cool off a Heat team that have won 19 straight games.
On Wednesday, the Boyz n the Hood actor visited ESPN’s First Take and discussed a variety of topics including the Miami’s winning streak:
The Raptors play the Heat on Sunday.

Toronto Raptors forward Andrea Bargnani is expected to miss the rest of the season with an elbow injury.
Bargnani sprained his right elbow in the first quarter of Toronto's 118-116 road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers last Friday night and did not return.
The Raptors said the injury is not related to Bargnani's previous right elbow ailment that forced the 27-year-old Italian...
Raptors’ Andrea Bargnani will miss the remainder of the season with a right elbow sprain. The six-year veteran tweaked his elbow during the first quarter of Friday’s game against the Lakers, did not return, and has been getting tests since. Bargnani averaged 12.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 35 games this season.
According to Raptors:

The Celtics took a 9 point lead into the half, but with about two and a half minutes to go in the third, the C’s hit the gas and left the Raptors in the rear view mirror. They crushed the Raps 112-88 for their 10th straight home win. The Celtics bench was a giant part of the blowout, outscoring the Raptors bench 58-29.
Paul Pierce had a nice return from his day...
The Raptors are expected to pursue Carl Landry this offseason if he opts out of his contract with the Warriors.
It was sad to see 4 pages on one game thread and 19 on another. Those game threads used to have over 100 pages every game. The Celtics did get the benefit of some calls last night. I'm amazed at how many fans hate their head coach. Makes me very thankful for Doc. Good game for the Celtics. Not so much for the Raptors. Enjoy today's comments...
The Toronto Raptors look different than they did in two earlier meetings with the Charlotte Bobcats, but they will probably see the best of Gerald Henderson for the first time.
Henderson looks to build on the most productive game of his career - a rare victory for the league-worst Bobcats - on Friday night in Toronto.
These clubs have split two meetings, with both coming before...
Rudy Gay is shooting 36.7 percent from the field in March.
On a night of milestones where Kevin Garnett passed Jerry West to become #15 and Paul Pierce passed Charles Barley to become #20 on the all-time scoring list, the Celtics blew out the Raptors at home by a 112-88 margin. Highlights above, box score below.

First it was Zach Randolph who spoke up and said that the Memphis Grizzlies were better after Rudy Gay was traded to the Toronto Raptors. Now Randolph’s teammate, and Grizzlies’ defensive specialist, Tony Allen, has come out and said the same.
“Well, I just think we turned into the team that we were two years ago, without the guy that we traded.”Allen went on.“Obviously...
