ok, first of all, there's a different rate of exchange with Canada, right? So a 50 point loss is only like a 37 point loss to an America team, okay? And GHill and Rolo both got 2 techs and were kicked out of the game because their passports were no good in Canada, see? And the powerhouse that is the Toronto Raptors (who are w/o ChrishBosh and Hedo) knows that the only games they can win this year are probably going to be those North of the border and/or those in the preseason, so last night's game counted as a double for them!
(Have you noticed that the TimberWolves are 2-0, including a win over the Lackers and their lock-down defense holding Amar'e to 11? Only desperate teams teams go for the W in the preseason. Well, and the Miami Hate. All Miami, all the time!! Watch their lone preseason game 15 times on NBAtv today!!!!!!)
And the number one reason not to panic-- Steve Nash secretly donned a Raptor uni and Captain Canada snuck into the Raptor lineup to give his ol' country SOMETHING to cheer about!!
