Raptors Rapid Recap: Toronto 100 New Jersey 90

- Not impressive. Not exciting. Not pretty. This win was however, essential. After getting destroyed by the Thunder the Raps got the job done, led by their franchise guy CB4. Bosh was dominant tonight and ensured the win despite getting limited help. Bosh finished with 36 points and 7 rebounds. He had the inside and outside game going and simply abuse the Nets front court.

- Speaking of limited help...the rest of Toronto's starters were far from impressive. Andrea Bargnani looked completely disinterested and the backcourt duo of Calderon and DeRozan brought little to the table. Kudos to the players who did know the importance of this game, including Antoine Wright and Jarrett Jack.

- It's been tough for the Raps fans lately but can you even imagine being a Nets fan. This team just imploded after a decent first half. They just don't play smart basketball and don't have enough talent to fight through those mistakes. There were about 1000 people there last night and that's being generous. For Nets fans I do hope they win the lottery.

- Other key's to the game? The Raps finally outrebounded their opponents, kept the turnovers to a minimum and for the first time in what feels like eons, outscored their opponent in the third quarter.

- Hard to get excited about this win though. After the humilitation suffered on Friday night the Raps are going to need a signature win to really get the fans back onside. Beating the lowly Nets is far from being a noteworthy accomplishment. It is however a chance for this team to start feeling better about itself.
