Default Bargnani has 26 points as Raptors beat Nuggets

The AP reports: The high of beating the NBA’s best team didn’t last long for the Denver Nuggets. No surprise, really. That’s the way things have gone for Denver over the past three weeks. Andrea Bargnani scored 26 points, Jose Calderon had 10 points and 10 assists and the Toronto Raptors snapped a nine-game losing streak against Denver, beating the Nuggets 105-96 Wednesday night. Hoping to strengthen their playoff credentials after dumping the league-leading Bulls 108-91 in Chicago on Monday night, Denver had another rough landing instead... Toronto’s two former Nuggets had big games. Gary Forbes had 11 points and 10 rebounds for his second career double-double and Linas Kleiza scored 15 points. DeMar DeRozan added 17 points as the Raptors beat Denver for the first time since March 23, 2007. Lawson had 26 points and nine assists, Afflalo scored 13 and Wilson Chandler had 13 for the Nuggets, who came in 13-1 against Eastern Conference opponents this season. Denver’s only other loss to an Eastern team was a 100-99 home loss to Cleveland on March 7.

At least NJ also won. Cleveland lost though and that pulls them closer to us in the standings.

It really was a costly win. You know the Raptors will beat a few of the bad teams towards the end of the season so they need to be losing all of these games to the good teams. There is a glut of teams with 17-18 wins now.

Yeah. The way I see it, right now there are 3 teams that are very likely to have worse records than us at seasons end. Charlotte, New Orleans, and Washington. After that, there's 4 teams with very similar records to ours. Detroit, Cleveland, New Jersey, and Sacramento. A few wins here and there could be the difference between 8th and 4th most lottery balls. And if we are closer to 8, man would this ever be a wasted year IMO.

Agreed. this is really depressing. I think we are playing better than any of those teams and there is a very good chance we end up with the 8th seed.

Casey is proving to be a really good coach and it is costing us.
I wish we had triano for one more season.

Exactly. Cheaper but with as good stats. Bargs doesn't bitch about lack of camera times also.

As Q said, I wouldn't want either on this current roster. But to add, at 5 years $50 mill we didn't exactly get a bargain price for him. I've heard nothing of any other team in the league willing to pay him that kind of money, and obviously teams are even hesitant to trade for him because of his contract size and that he's still a pretty one dimensional player.

Why would he? He's spareheading a perennial bottom feeder, and as the best player isn't even close to leading the team to a fringe playoff spot. He doesn't receive the criticism of a star player, and nobody cares that he's peaked out, and his rebounding, shot blocking, and defense have declined (if that was even possible), along with his efficiency.
