Raptors Weekly Podcast, April 21 – Response Required


“The Nets draw first blood in a series getting heated on and off the court – Casey’s move next.

Tim Chisholm (@timpchisholm) is a late arrival to the show where Andrew (@MarmaladeJacko) reveals the true reason why Valanciunas was unfazed by the occasion. It’s a four-part pod which covers Game 1, and more importantly, what to do in Game 2.  Here’s the agenda that we  never stick to – please note that Part 3 of this Podcast uses language that some listeners may find unsuitable to their ears.

  • Refs

Part 2

  • Bench analysis – is Patterson the small-ball guy?
  • Seeking a defensive stopper off the bench, who fits the bill?
  • Tactical changes needed for Game 2
  • Change lineup?
  • Will Nets continue to shoot poor?
  • Deron Williams – worry about him or let him shoot

Part 3

  • Raptors playoff perception across the league thus far
  • Ujiri’s swear word and reaction
  • Game-clock problems
