First Raptors game I've managed to catch this year, looks promising. Bargnani did just miss a layup.
John Lucas is really, really, really bad.
He should be limited to one on one pick-up games.
Goodness, the offense is not moving well. Amir is making some stupid decisions out there.
Val's gotta finish better
These missed FTs are killing us.
why must bargnani stop looking for his man once he finishes rotating? BE ACTIVE, FIND YOUR MAN, and DONT JUST WALTZ YOUR WAY BACK!
ugh. Pisses me off.
Amir for three??? I think hell just froze over.
Demar is SO GOOD.
Just tuned it.. garbage time. Anyone have thoughts on the game and how everyone played?
Amir and Kleiza really stepped it up in the second half when things weren't looking good. Calderon's trade value is sky high tho I don't know if I trade him with Lowry being potentially injury prone.
Jose assisted on 50% of the field goals today. That's crazy!
Calderon was incredible. Scored efficiently in the first, then when his shot stopped going down, he dished out 14 more assists!! Love where his value is at!
Derozan is making his professional attitude seem legit! Is this the new standard for him now? Just great focus, control on offense, good decision making with some assists, and 8 rebounds!! Continue to look for his development in areas other than scoring! DD may be the real deal.
Bargnani had some of his shots drop, but is so inconsistent with his focus its hard to define his games. He will have a 5 minute spurt of shots draining as if he magically just placed in the hoop. But then have 20 mins of ineffectiveness filled with the most lackluster focus on his rotations. He is the fault of MANY defensive break downs on our team IMO.
Ed continued to looked really solid
Amir had one of those wonder nights where even his 3pt shots were going down!
Val had a mediocre night. Some missed shots, rushed turnovers, and bad defensive plays. BUT, he continued to show effort, and fight his way to a slightly more decent game. Started grabbing some offensive rebounds, some put backs, and if only he hit his FT shots, he wouldve put up some more points! Glen Davis though abused him on the perimeter, and out muscled him half the time.
Mcguire was interesting. He hit some jump shots, was found cutting a couple times, played some strong defense. The hole at SF was satisfied tonight, if not, just barely.
Kleiza had a strong performance tonight and showed some life. Though he had some ill-advised shots, he also hit 2 3pointers and was part of the lineup that brought the team back. He even kept Derozan on the bench for parts in the 3rd with his play.
Great effort tonight by many of our players. Glad to see most of them step up to the challenge.
imagine the calderon haters got their way and we traded jose? think we needed rudy gay more than kyle lowry
as a jose fanboy it drives me nuts that he doesn't push more and get into the paint but that's his style. don't hate the guy because he's not flashy like other pg's
If Jose took more shots and drove to the basket he will be franchise talent/.
