That was a pretty entertaining afternoon of basketball, wasn’t it?

Making it work
There were about three seconds left on the shot clock in the second quarter, if my chicken scratch is to be believed, when the ball goes out of bounds; the Raptors call timeout and it was going to be interesting to see what they could come up with.
More to come
We’ll delve a bit more into The Pascal Siakam Phenomenon later on today – it’s a natural off-day story and we thank him for that – and Dwane made specific mention of the track-down block he had of Mike Scott in the fourth quarter during the coach’s post-game chinwag.
Which dovetails nicely into the story I have to write later.
Tough day, one glimpse
Chatting with Masai at the G League game on Saturday (yep, totally took in the 905ers getting slaughtered by Lakeland), the word is that Anunoby, when he’s fully healthy and fully confident in his knee and conditioning, is far more a driver and attacker in the Norm Powell mode than he is a defender and a catch-and-shoot three-point point in the corner.
As the man used to say …
Now, the rest of the story.
First, I cannot believe this was more than 14 years ago.
And if he wasn’t one of those Olympians who caught your eye every four years, I don’t know who would have been.
How’d that turn out?
Pretty well given the antics of yesterday and the dramatic Eastern Final win over Saskatchewan.
I did more than my share of the Argos a couple of summers ago and said many times back then that Ray was one of the steadiest and best quarterbacks I’d ever seen and when he threw an incompletion, you were shocked.
Well, the pass he threw on the third-and-five on that final drive might go down as one of the most important he’s thrown in his Argo years.
It was a little lob pass over a defender and in traffic and when we were watching on the monitors up in our seat it was the first “holy crap” moment of the day.
Okay, I have my usual haunts in Halifax and will stop by them at some time later in the week. But if I’m out wandering a couple of late afternoons or evenings, anyone got any out-of-the way new places I should see?
