TORONTO - Danny Granger either has a short memory or he has already erased Jan. 31 from his memory banks.
The Pacers forward was incensed at the conclusion of Fridayís game when Leandro Barbosa attempted a driving layup as the clock expired despite the fact the Raptors were already up 10 points.
What Granger conveniently forgot, however, is that a little less than six weeks ago on his own home court and with the Pacers up by eight against the Raptors, Darren Collison jacked up a three-pointer in the same circumstances.
Only difference was Collisonís three-ball was good.
Granger vowed the Raptors would have to answer for Barbosaís flaunting of the unwritten rules of basketball at a future date.
Barbosa didnít seem worried.
ďYou canít get respect if you donít give respect,Ē Barbosa said. ďI knew they were going to get mad but those who know me know how I am. Granger knows how I am, we play ball together in the summer sometimes. I didnít want to do that but like I said, respect is respect. Unfortunately it happened that way.Ē
