The Raptors exploded this weekend, posting back-to-back wins in Atlanta on Friday and New Jersey on Saturday. In doing so, they also moved out of the NBA’s basement and improved their season mark to 3-15. And if it couldn’t get any better, Big Man Ha-fay-el Ar-RU-joe almost took out Vince Carter. VC left midway through the third with an ankle injury after getting tangled up with the big Brazillian. Although he returned to the game, Vince characteristically limped around the court and did little to help his team. He later described the injury as an “irritation of the joint”. Damn we miss that guy. Chris Bosh scored a team high 29 points in the 95-82 win.
The question now is how do you celebrate the apparent turnaround?? Well actually.. Precisely the same way Torontoist celebrates a bottle of shiraz, 4 beers, and a tray of sambucca shots. Bosh and teammate Loren Woods followed their flight home from New Jersey by heading down Spadina for some all-night chinese. New Ho King, generally known for its drunken frat boys and hungry 905er’s on their way home from a long night of clubbing, peeled off a layer of table cloth (plastic) for the Raptor forwards.
Although we enjoy the back-to-back wins, it might be advised that you stay away from the 4am fried foods until your team’s a bit closer to .500.. Either that, or just order-in. Atleast Leaf’s goalie Ed Belfour wasn’t guzzling cold tea in the back after his perfromance earlier that evening.
