Steve Nash and Vince Carter on the same team might have confused the fans

Steve Russell - Staff Photographer

Secretly before the game the moment I was hopeing for was that Steve Nash and Vince Carter would be on the floor at the same time and begin to pass the ball back and forth. I was hoping the fans would cheer each time Nash got the ball and boo everytime Vince touched it, it never happened.

Vince was greeted with boos but not like before, maybe because it was his third team since leaving the Raptors or maybe because we love Steve Nash or maybe because the Raptors were never really in the game that was a lot more lopsided than the 110-92 spanking they got!
