Actually, between the Nets beating the Raptors in the ’07 playoffs and this memorable game-winner in Toronto, the score is more lopsided than that. But what just transpired a few minutes ago takes the cake.

In a game that the Raptors rightfully should have won — where Chris Bosh scored 42 points and the Raps were in control most of the way — they somehow let it slip away in overtime, and at the hands of T-Dot’s most hated man. First, Vince Carter went nuts in the fourth quarter, scoring 12 in a row at one point and capping it with a three to force OT with less than a second remaining. In the extra frame, with two seconds left on the clock and the score tied, Vince got WIDE open on an inbounds play, allowing Bobby Simmons to hit him with a perfectly-placed alley oop that VC finished backwards.

Cue the “What the f*** you gonna say now?” face by Vince (39 pts, 9 rebs, 6 asts) and after the Raps missed a long-distance prayer, the bad guy won again.
