View Full Version : Raptors Offensive Juggernaut

Ok, maybe not. At the half Washington leads Toronto 51-24, holding the Raptors to a franchise low 4 points in the second quarter.
I'm really starting to love this team. Great attitude, great athleticism and great team play.

I'm really loving the play of Dixon. Many people questioned him as a Pro BBaller much less a first round pick.......and the boy is showing he can make it happen with steals, points and great shooting.

Ok here we go. Etan Thomas continues his exceptional play. He may be a bit undersized to play Center but he makes up for his lack of height through hustle and great timing on rebounds and blocks.
Jarvis Hayes is going to be a keeper. Great athleticism and a sweet stroke from pretty much anywhere on the field. He's got a nice game down low and almost looks Jordanesque with his fade away jumper from the blocks.
Another huge surprise is Hughes play. Against the Raptors he was sharp from long range and made a nice couple of moves to the basket. On one play he shook Vince Carter so badly with a cross over move that he would have ended up on Sportscenter had he not missed the layup.
Dixon is also starting to come into his own showing the swagger that I felt he missed last season. Dixon showed his outside stroke that we've seen so often in Maryland and is also making a nice impact on the defensive end. The way he plays the lanes is impressive, he ended up with 4 steals and was close to registering 2 more.
Another bright spot was Laettner. He had something like 8 rebounds in the first quarter alone and ended up with 11 total watching most of the second half from the bench.

The key to everything I think is the highest scorer was hays at 13 points, EVERYONE scored and it looked so fluid.

Dixon seems to do better when the game is at a faster pace and the ball is moving more, versus the slower, isolated game MJ & Stackhouse provoked. He fits in better with the style of this group.
