Toronto Raptors 116 Final
Recap | Box Score
107 Detroit Pistons
Amir Johnson, PF Shot Chart 17 MIN | 3-3 FG | 2-3 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK | 0 TO | 8 PTS | +2

What a God-send, can we give this guy a contract extension already? Seriously, if he was any more consistent he’d be a brick wall.

Terrence Ross, SF Shot Chart 23 MIN | 2-4 FG | 1-1 FT | 4 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 6 PTS | +17

Is there a stat like 1/2 triple doubles, because he almost nailed that with a 6/4/4 line. Sick player, sicker condo.

Jonas Valanciunas, C Shot Chart 30 MIN | 5-12 FG | 8-9 FT | 8 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 18 PTS | +9

I want to be friends with this guy so bad. He’d totally let me crash at his place, bum a smoke, and playfully throw the XBOX controller at me after I crush him in FIFA.

Kyle Lowry, PG Shot Chart 34 MIN | 9-18 FG | 6-8 FT | 2 REB | 7 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 28 PTS | +8

Are you watching Joe Johnson? Are you watching? This is what an All-Star looks like you over-paid, under-worked mushroom head of a human being.

DeMar DeRozan, SG Shot Chart 38 MIN | 10-19 FG | 8-10 FT | 1 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 30 PTS | +7

Hah, if you caught the pod posted today I chose not to talk about him because he wasn’t doing much all week. Well, tonight he did something. Like a lot and got a tweet from Lillard appreciating the work.

Tyler Hansbrough, PF Shot Chart 11 MIN | 0-0 FG | 2-2 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | +3

It doesn’t matter what he does in the regular season, as long as he knees Garnett in the groin reducing the thug to a pile of leaves, I’m all good.

Patrick Patterson, PF Shot Chart 25 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 8 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 3 BLK | 1 TO | 4 PTS | +6

Back to the bench, back to being a playa. I’ve ordered my gold-hemmed Patrick Patterson jersey and should be here in time for the playoffs. I’ll be at the ACC, just look for the guy getting the mad pu$$y. Three blocks tonight and they said he don’t play D.

Chuck Hayes, PF Shot Chart 14 MIN | 1-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 10 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | -2

Playa, meet Balla. Solid rebounding game against a frontline some call formidable. Chuck Hayes calls them a bunch of pansies.

John Salmons, SF Shot Chart 16 MIN | 0-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -5

Jesus man, even in a post where I’m giving everyone mad love, I can’t figure what to write for this guy. I presume he’s bored of the regular season and just waiting for the playoffs.

Greivis Vasquez, PG Shot Chart 19 MIN | 5-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 14 PTS | +3

Sixth man of the second half of the post All-Star game period.

Nando de Colo, PG Shot Chart 15 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 4 PTS | -3

Someone needs to pull up his average distance run/minute stat. I bet it’s sky high.

Dwane Casey

Coach of the Year? Probably not, but definitely an extension.
