Even with a full-strength squad there were no expectations of winning this game, so watching a depleted Raptors unit get smoked at home is par for the course. The excellent first quarter that the home team delivered felt good, and I was at the ACC to feel the relief and joy in the crowd as they witnessed what ball movement, pick ‘n roll play, and assists looked like. They watched in amazement as one Raptors player drove the lane, and get this, passed the ball to an open teammate! They sat there in shock and horror, with mouth agape, as Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas rolled to the rim and received a pass which they converted.

It was brilliant stuff and it felt like the shackles had been lifted and a new team had been formed. That’s when sober reality kicked in and you knew that the 14-point lead had as much chance of lasting as Dwane Casey returning next year: nil. You realized that the immovable and unfazed Spurs didn’t even bat an eye at this meekest of deficits. You realized that the Raptors were being fueled by the adrenalin of change, whereas the Spurs’ engine had yet to be ignited.

[Did you read Reaction: Raptors 103 vs Spurs 116 – Dec. 10/13]

Before we do a post-mortem let’s talk about what we saw that was new with this team in the absence of Rudy Gay. The first thing you realize is that the ball does not get stuck. I know that’s a cliche of sorts but it holds true here. The Raptors were switching their offense on every possession, sometimes it was Lowry running a PnR with Johnson, sometimes DeRozan with Valanciunas, sometimes Valanciunas in the post, and what you saw as the result of this was ball-movement. Having multiple points of attack increases reduces the predictability of the offense, forcing the defense to cover wider ground. Once you sprinkle this with crisp ball movement, the defense is bound to be on its heels, as San Antonio was in the early going.

Here’s a look at the first quarter box score for the Raptors.

1q

Lots of touches for Valanciunas resulting in him scoring, heavy focus on Amir Johnson in both pop and roll situations, and Terrence Ross becoming the benefactor due to so much focus inside. The Raptors had nine assists in the first quarter, which is a season high (I don’t even have to look that up, I just know it’s a season-high). Of course, they ended up with only nine for the rest of the game but let’s leave that aside for now. The point here is that the Raptors, for one quarter at least, played the type of game that we expected them to play all season – win or lose.

Then things changed.

The Spurs let the Raptors have their fun and made a couple adjustments: they started sagging on the screens and taking the “roll” pathways away from the Raptors bigs. This resulted in the ball being swung back out to the perimeter or held by a big man at the top of the key. The Raptors, not having much of a game-plan, swung it and tried to attack via DeRozan who had moderate success, but more importantly, it was an offense that the Spurs felt comfortable defending.

Once the Raptors bench, headlined on this night by Dwight Buycks, Steve Novak, and Austin Daye, came into the game, it quickly became clear that the Raptors had no chance in this game against a Spurs offense that has enough dribble-penetration, outside shooting, lateral movement, and ridiculous interior screening to score almost at will. From the Raptors perspective, the game deteriorated into something close to unwatchable as guys like Jeff Ayres, Patty Mills, and Aron Baynes administered a rather humiliating punishment, all via the assembly-line San Antonio offense.

You won’t find too many Raptors games that aren’t also hilarious and this one didn’t disappoint as Austin Daye and Steve Novak played extended minutes in a smaller lineup where they were the PF/C. We’ll get to Valanciunas in a bit, don’t worry, but let me just close the books on these two.

There is no point in playing Steve Novak unless you are being very prescriptive in the sets being run, sets that are designed to move whoever Novak’s defender is away from Novak. Steve Novak cannot do anything else on the basketball court. When not on offense and being catered to, he may as well be an usher in the stands. Why Casey feels that he can afford to have Novak out there wandering like a chicken with its head cut off is a question that needs to be asked. If Lowry is entering a battle with Tony Parker on the strong-side of the court, the Spurs will easily contend with that by having a big drop down, or have the strong-side corner defender help out (if needed). There is zero chance that the weak-side defender will leave Novak long enough (he has no reason to) for Lowry to find him. It just isn’t going to happen.

So Dwane Casey, please, give some thought to Steve Novak. He actually has a skill we can use but it’ll involve some thinking on your part, maybe a play. How does a baseline double-screen with DeRozan operating in a pick ‘n roll with Amir sound? No? How about simply a misdirection and a down-screen? No? Well, why don’t you come up with something yourself then.

That’s Novak, and now onto Austin Daye. I feel like I’m witnessing his funeral out there. The guy has zero skill, no skill whatsoever. Maybe he can shoot, maybe he can’t. Maybe he can be a serviceable three-point shooter, maybe he should be working at Footlocker, who really knows? All I know, and I can confirm this, is that the guy does not break a sweat. He could be playing for 35 minutes (not like that will ever happen in the NBA) and look like he woke up from beauty sleep. I guess it was unavoidable for Daye to get playing time given the player shortage, but man, it is quite depressing to see our beloved Raptors trot out a lineup of Buycks, Daye, Novak, Ross,and Fields to reverse a home deficit. I call that my “tank lineup”, I’ll get to that in a bit, but first to Valanciunas.

After the hot start, our Lithuanian giant got taken aback by the aggressiveness of which the Spurs big men were hitting the glass. He was visibly frustrated at the swiftness at which the Spurs offense moves and how quickly opportunities materialize after their guards and forward make interior passes. He got scored in some one-on-one situations, got moved on the boards, and went through a second-quarter spell where things weren’t going right for him. Unfortunately for him, nothing was quite done to reestablish him in the game, not via the post and not via the two-man game. I’ll spell this out one more time this season. The Raptors need an interior post-up presence to balance their offense and whether they like it or not, Valanciunas is that man. Keep feeding him the ball and figure out how you can play around him, just like you do with DeRozan.

His game has obvious flaws: he takes too long to make his move, his shoulder and head fakes are weak, his jumper doesn’t scare anyone (even though he nailed one on Timmy), and he doesn’t yet have a go-to move that you can somewhat depend on (nice jumphook last night, though). However, they’re all works in progress and there’s no reason to think that if given the time and ball, he’ll improve. Just like Terrence Ross needs game time to settle in, find his rhythm, not need to look over his shoulder, the same is true for Valanciunas. What is player development if not nurturing the talent that a player shows in glimpses?

Forget everything else and focus on this now. San Antonio has taken charge of the game, the Raptors bench and starters have stunk it up after shooting 63% in the first quarter, and the Spurs are up 19 with 8:15 left in the game. Dwane Casey pulls DeMar DeRozan and Amir Johnson, thus conceding the game. Valanciunas is already on the bench and the Raptors are in a tank-lineup of Daye, Buycks, Ross, Novak, and Fields. The ACC crowd is heading out and more t-shirts are being given away begging them to stay. Things are progressing as expected in this rout till 2:44, when in a 16-point game, Dwane Casey trots out Jonas Valanciunas to replace Landry Fields.

What. In. The. World?

Does he want Valanciunas to get some exercise? Does he think he’s going to start the comeback? Is he trying to get him injured so the tank is official? It boggled my mind as I sat there and saw the look on Valanciunas’ face when his number was called. He was not happy. He picked up an offensive foul after a pass was zipped to him, which after sitting on the bench for 20 minutes in a blowout isn’t something you expect. He was probably icing his knees and getting ready for a shower before this madness transpired.

Now, since we’re on the talk of weird substitutions, let’s address tanking.

I’ve been in denial here, I’ve believed that the Raptors were trying to win this year and I supported the cause. In any debate in the comments on this site, I’ve tried to shoot down the tank but I’ve now accepted it, or a variant of it. I believe that somehow Ujiri will land a pick in the draft, whether it be via the tank or trade route. Here’s how it’s going to play out: the Raptors will be shipping off Amir Johnson and Kyle Lowry, two of the more tradable guys, and retaining the services of Dwane Casey till the end of the year because, frankly, he is simply perfect as the tank commander. If I were him I’d resign before things get ugly, but he’s too absorbed by the head coaching position to see through that. The Raptors will politely decline to renew his contract come the summer, and get a head coach that is of Masai Ujiri’s picking. Perhaps George Karl, perhaps Jeff Van Gundy, perhaps Stan Van Gundy, perhaps Jonas’ dad. I don’t know. This appears to be a full-on reset, as even the players acquired in the Gay deal have enough value, which will be added onto, to be shipped at the deadline.

As I sat there watching Casey and Popovich stand on opposing ends of the baseline, it dawned on me that this might be the biggest coaching mismatch ever. Here we have a perennial NBA champion going up against a guy who makes hockey line-changes in the second quarter. While I was wondering that I saw Tony Parker go the other way on a Diaw screen, put Lowry on his hip and score on an easy leaner as the help defender hesitated to leave Green open in the corner. A simple play. On the next possession, I saw Lowry go one-on-one trying to get back at Parker, end up in a turnover and on to the next play. This is where a coach like Popovic would call timeout, inform his PG that this isn’t a personal battle and one shouldn’t make it such. In Casey’s case though, play continued.

I also played special attention to the out-of-timeout success rate by the Raptors and I can confirm that every instance I monitored failed. Some of them ended up in offensive fouls and most didn’t result in more than two guys touching the ball. If Casey chooses to hand DeRozan the ball a the wing or top of the key, he also has to make an effort to construct an outlet for him, because otherwise DeRozan will simply drive the ball and try to score, or if he finds himself in trouble, dribble it out for a reset using up clock. There needs to be some passing options – and I’m not even talking about assists – that allow DeRozan or another penetrator like Lowry to pass out without breaking rhythm of the play. Currently, when the Raptors pass out of a drive it either ends up in a low-percentage jumper or some wild sequences where players end up crossing paths and getting in each other’s way as they try to figure out just what to do now that the original drive-play has gone away.

I’m not sure what DeRozan’s fate is going to be. Last night you saw him score against some excellent defense in Kawhi Leonard and to a lesser extent, Danny Green. At the same time you saw both those guys easily take advantage of him on defense and DeRozan taper off as the game got older. How Green pass-faked him out with his hips at one point was downright embarrassing. At the same time, Ujiri has to see that the offense is a shambles and that there are zero in-game adjustments being made to cater to the team’s limited strengths. DeRozan’s excellent mid-range game is hardly utilized off the ball, I don’t think the Raptors have run a Princeton-cut all year which would put DeRozan’s athleticism against the opposing team’s bigs. My feeling is that Ujiri has to value DeRozan and believe that he is a player that’s part of the solution, not the problem, and hence keep him.

While I’m at this I’d like to give my thoughts on the D.J Augustin cut. Really, you could’ve thrown darts and decided which of Stone, Buycks, or Augustin to cut loose. My guess it came down to the money they make and Augustin led that category. Stone’s sole strength appears to be to dribble the ball up the court without turning it over, and the dribble penetration and defense that you may have hoped Buycks would bring aren’t anywhere to be seen. They’re basically on the team because the NBA has a minimum roster size requirement.

Before I end this, I have to comment on how enjoyable it is to watch the Spurs play. This was a Raptors Republic Group Night and although it was a blowout, I’m glad I picked this game to go because it is mighty impressive how the Spurs have found roles for Patty Mills, Marco Belinelli, and other no-names.

Final word goes to the ACC fans who ERUPTED in a 16-point game with 33 seconds left when the Raptors scored a 100 points thinking they had gotten free pizza, not knowing that the home team must win as well. I felt embarrassed as even the Spurs bench wondered what the celebration was about.

This thing is now past 2500 words and I best call it a night. Sign up for the tournament as a team or as a player (we’ll slot you in a suitable team).

  • Brian Gerstein

    It was an honour and a pleasure to sit next to you last night, watching the Spurs artistry and execution in playing this game as it is supposed to be played. When the Raptors were up by 14 in the first quarter, I turned to you and said, “this is not going to last”, knowing full well how a top NBA team knows how to make the in-game adjustments to turn the game their way and never look back, and that’s exactly what happened.

    • Shiznibble

      You so damn smart!!

    • arsenalist

      It was great meeting you again! Nice catch on Pop working the refs.

  • Milesboyer

    Quite an opus of an article and as always way better than any Toronto sports writer could produce. One thing I hope you’re wrong on – trading Amir Johnson. Kyle Lowry seems inevitable and I think getting rid of him should be enough to allow for a lot of losing but Amir needs to stay. There has to be some solid veterans on the team next year and there are none better than AJ. Hopefully Masai sees that.

    • c_bcm

      Agreed. I think moving forward you need to find a way to keep Val, Amir, and DeRozen. I also kinda like Fields, but he isn’t getting much play recently. The problem will of course be what the market places their value at. If you can get a top pick for any of these guys, then Masai will make that move. And it will make me sad for about 30 seconds. Then I will go about my day and forget about it, then wake up to next season with renewed excitement. Kinda like what happend with the Calderon/Davis deal…I moved on.

  • One relaxed fella

    Well, Jonas gets frustrated far too often nowadays. Casey might be the case since this guy is a really bad head coach but Jonas needs to change his attitude non the less. Focus more, be angry less. This has already became a trend so far in this season (Jonas’ frustration) and this attitude isn’t helping him at all. But you know what I didn’t like the most? That he was outplayed by Baynes, the same guy that Jonas outplayed easily in the summer league. Jonas was so much better than Baynes back then and now it’s all reverse.

    Other things I didn’t like was the same old story with ball movement. Basically nothing has changed, the wings still take too many bad shots (long 2s) and they still shoot at bad percentage although I was deeply impressed the way DeMar passed the ball. Off course, they played and lost against the mighty Spurs, which is the team that I admire the most in NBA. Still, I’m sticking to my opinion that the reason why Raptors have one of the worst offense in the league is because of Casey, not the players. DeMar, Ross, Fields, Jonas and Novak can be more efficient with the right plays. I understand that Raptors are tanking now (or at least they will tank hard after trading Lowry) which means that there are two most important goals for this season: 1) fight for the lowest position possible; 2) develop your young prospects. Casey can’t develop players and that is enough to sack this guy.

    • Bendit

      Agree on the frustration but do you think JV would have come out on top if he were on the Spurs and Baynes on the Raps? I think a lot of his frustration stems from how the team is coached and resulting incompetence of his team mates.

      • One relaxed fella

        Sure, that’s true. The frustration is not only about himself and the way he plays but more about the way this team plays and the way it’s being coached. If Jonas would be a Spurs member I’m pretty sure he’d be used in better positions, therefore he’d most likely have an upper hand against a guy like Baynes. It’s the ball movement, the basketball IQ and the players that surrounds Baynes in Spurs that gave him more freedom to move and to get into better/ easier positions to score or to be effective in other ways. These are two basketball systems that are very different, just like Tim wrote in his article the other night – it’s like Charlize vs Barr. It’s almost incomparable.

        However, I’m not trying to find more excuses about Jonas’ so so performance so far this season although it may look like it’s exactly what I’m doing. But I believe he’s one of the few players in Raptors roster that would benefit a lot if different approach towards the style of play would be taken. Amir, Jonas, Fields and even Lowry have team play mentality and pretty good basketball IQ. Players like DD and Ross – no. To me they will always be the guys who’d rather look good themselves and lose instead win and look bad.

        That’s why I also remember an article about Spurs and why they have so many international players in their roster and manage to be that successful. Sure they have players like Duncan, Parker and they have the best active coach in the world – that’s the most important part of their success.However, internationals are trained in order to play team basketball, not some hero BS “look at me I can do everything by myself” type of basketball. The days of stars that score 20-25 point per game with 35 percent shooting and who can’t contribute in other areas at all (including passing, creating for other and defending) are long gone. To any European like Jonas the dumbest way to play basketball on O is without ball movement, without PnR plays and with lots of ISO.

        The best example to me is Lebron who is the most skilled player in NBA since Jordan retired and he has everything – super strong body, he’s extremely athletic and a great shooter. Yet he won his rings and multiple MVP titles by not playing selfish. Very early in his NBA career he established himself as a team player who moves the ball and always tries to involve others.

        So yeah, things like that (back to Raptors stuff) are frustrating to watch and one thing that is already noticeable – without Rudy Amir has more space and freedom (both physically and mentally) and plays very damn good. He looks like a different man who got rid of some irritating pain in the ass.

        Sorry for the long post and this whole ramble… got carried away.

    • Roarque

      Good point on the Baynes development. I could see how a player would accept less money to play in a tiny city like San Antonio. The role players they have all seem to be sooo calm and cool because they know Pop has got their back. He’s not going to embarrass them out there by asking them to do things that they cannot do. Baynes personifies that concept. He has been evaluated by Coach Pop who has told him what he does well and then told how to do it better. In the offseason Baynes will be told what to do to get better and in 2-3 seasons he can back up Splitter on a team that will go to the Show in the Spring.

      • sleepz

        Baynes looked like Bane last night.

        JV has to slow dudes like that down. Can’t let those type of players go off on him.

  • DanH

    “My guess it came down to the money they make and Augustin led that category.”

    Your guess is probably wrong, since cutting a player doesn’t save money (or cap space) unless they are unguaranteed (which Stone is, and DJ isn’t). So I think it came down to – do we want a terrible player with no upside? Or terrible players with maybe some upside?

    “They’re basically on the team because the NBA has a minimum roster size requirement.”

    And the minimum roster size is 12, the Raps have 15 players. Logic not holding up here.

    • arsenalist

      My thought process was:

      1. Augustin makes most money
      2. Augustin is the most recognizable name
      3. Augustin is the most likely to be picked up by another team, thus assuming his salary and freeing Raptors money

      Roster size thing, yeah.

      • DanH

        3. No team is going to make a waiver claim for DJ. So when he got picked up, there would be insignificant savings for the Raps.

    TOTALLY TRUE.

    The only way the Raps could have possibly won is by having all the starters play the full 48 and magically not get tired.

    • Roarque

      I like your enthusiasm and wish that our starters could beat their bench – but then there’s the coach thing….

  • elkabong

    well done….. nice read ….. you are bang on with everything Casey and his total lack of in game coaching skills just drive me nuts! i thought he actually had a nice game plan for that 1st quarter but once Pop made his adjustments he was just totally lost as to what to do next. maybe if he had an evening to watch some film and make some notes he’d likely come up with an answer but to think on the fly in at NBA speed not a snowball’s chance eh

    excellent point about Lowry with the macho man routine and a good coach would definitely nip that in the bud but i don’t think they are quite over the inmates running the asylum which was very apparent while Rudy was in charge 😉

  • Pong

    I actually forgot about the whole 100 points pizza thing so at first I thought it was cool that so many fans stayed to watch the final 4 minutes of play. I was cheering because Buycks and co were making a run against the Spurs’ bench. True that the game was over at that point but I’m sure Pop had zero intention for his bench unit to slack off on defence. Then when the Raps finally reached 100 points and I saw a guy stand up and high five his neighbour, I just realized what everyone else was so hyped about. I was sick to my stomach at that point

    • jjdynomite

      In the game I went to a couple weeks ago (win vs. Wizards) it was specifically stated by the announcer and on the jumboscreen that the Raps had to score 100 “AND win” for the free slice. Did they change this format for the Spurs as the chances of winning were so slim? However, if the rules that applied to my game still apply, it would be amusing to see that guy try to take his ticket to the pizza place for some cardboard and get rejected like Amir rejected Kawhi last night.

  • Tanks-a-lot

    Consider what a slice of pizza really costs any Pizza Pizza franchise.

    Once you understand the profit margin on that slice, ask yourself why the Tickets for Slices deal has conditions at all.

      It’s gotta go. Sure MLSE makes some money off it. Sure an element of the fanbase gets a kick out of it. Sure a handful of other teams do something similar.

      But. It’s embarrassing almost every time it happens. You can accomplish all of the above points without embarrassing your players and your fanbase – just put some thought into it, MLSE.

  • morgan c

    Zarar, excellent piece.

    I have been getting pretty negative lately, and in part it has directed at some of the seemingly misplaced pre-season optimism. I, like you, thought maybe we were okay heading into the season, but it is obvious now that we just aren’t. The tank or tank-variant is on, as you say, and I think we should all just accept that.

    One SERIOUS concern I have, is this (and you and others have alluded to it): While Casey is certainly a great coach to command the tank, are we not concerned that this gain may be off-set as a net-loss if he continues to stymie JV’s development? I don’t think anyone who has watched all the games can honestly say that this coach is giving the team’s “young star / future franchise guy” the opportunities to develop and succeed. I have concerns that another wasted year and the general negative malaise and LOSING CULTURE (face it, that’s what we are) will permanently mar his development. We’ve seen it happen before. This is not fear-mongering. I am scared shitless that our idiot coach is ruining our best young hope, before our very eyes.

    Thoughts?!

    • arsenalist

      We have JV for two more years after this one, plus the QO, so there’s enough time for the Raptors to get a long look at him and correct whatever ill-will may have been built up. You do have a point that poor early coaching/relationships can lead to feelings of resentment and ultimately the player leaving, Tracy McGrady is a good example of that. I don’t know if things are so bad with JV. He’s the unquestioned starter and is averaging 27 minutes a game, so from his perspective he’s getting a good set of minutes for a second-year guy.

      His mismanagement is happening at the in-game level than at the career level, which is more easily correctable and reconcilable. I don’t think he’s the only one in limbo and it’s a larger question of having proper rotations, which the Raptors don’t seem to have. In short, JV isn’t being singled out for any particular abuse, it’s a broader issue of team identity, rotation, structure, and values that Casey hasn’t so far instilled. In his defense, operating under this tank/no-tank speculation has to make the job a little harder, but there aren’t any excuses for putting JV back in late in the fourth quarter for no reason. Another think that might be preventing Ujiri from pulling the trigger on Casey is that the Raptors aren’t exactly an attractive proposition for an in-demand NBA head coach at this very moment, and Ujiri could be hoping that a pick might change that.

  • robertparrish00

    What kills me is when the opposing center sets a weak screen on our PG, and as a Casey mandate both our PG and center start chasing the opposing point guard around on the perimeter. What is that?

    • 2damkule

      well, it’s not supposed to look like ‘chasing the opposing point guard around the perimeter,’ but that’s a defensive tactic employed by quite a few, if not most, teams (i.e. have the big hedge hard on the ball-handler to take away any kind of drive &, best case, develop a trap, then recover back to their man rolling/popping).

      • robertparrish00

        Too funny. I haven’t noticed other teams using that. Or maybe they are using it properly so i don’t see it. They definitely take away the drive but it is a pretty easy pass to whoever T Ross is guarding, as he can’t guard both center and wing.

        Time to zone up!!!

  • SR

    Excellent write up. Nothing to add, really. Thanks for the good read.

  • nathan a.

    Fantastic analysis. Thanks from someone who didn’t see the game and would have been looking for many of the things you commented on – and with more ball wisdom than I would have. 😉

  • kameko

    100 points for pizza woohoo! theres nothing more stupid than the casual sports fan.

  • Mack

    We haven’t seen the players yielded in the trade in uniform yet but I think this off-season the only guys worth keeping are DeMar, JV, Amir, Vasquez, Patterson, Novak (for shooting and because he’s cheap) and Ross. Everyone else is can be walked down the plank. Also, Casey is absolutely out of a job and I fully expect Masai to bring in a more competent but also disciplinary coach who can develop his prospects and also knows how to draw up a decent offensive play. To me Casey was just another poor fit for a team that didn’t seem to have any direction ever since Bosh left for Miami. Colangelo should be getting almost 100% of the blame for putting together this debacle but fortunately that shipped has sailed and hopefully hit an iceberg.

    Fantastic article by the way, my friend.

    I agree with Mack, a good effort in the face of an abysmal 2-4th quarter performance. much appreciated. i see now more so than before (based in the context of the above quote) that it must be difficult for you to write about this team sometimes and that I was too harsh in my comments about your previous article.
    Now that you’re on-board with the tank, I think it makes it easier to see the future positives of the organization and not be so discourage by their immediate performances.
