    Actually it can. The three division champions plus the next best team in the conference are seeded 1-4 in order of where they are in the standings.

    When a team is getting down on itself and has the sort of body-language the Cavs have had lately, you need to jump on them early, get them feeling like it's going to be another bad night. Honestly...

    Okay, this is an insane boxscore note: almost every single Raptor has a plus +/- to minutes ratio at or greater than 1-to-1. (In other words, +1 for every minute of court time.) Exceptions are JV (a...

    Bucks box score so far is a great grade six math question. Complete this pattern: 27-18-12-?

    When you say that, you're talking about the lead that the Raptors are going to spot the Bucks before they make their comeback, right? Because a Raptors 20 point lead is just crazy.

    Here's why I think it's worth considering going after these guys via trade: assuming that the current projections hold that there will not be a smoothing effect to the cap this summer (2015), and...

    Amusing to read the comments on this ESPN 5-on-5 article, about contenders vs. pretenders. (Cavs, Clippers, Wizards, Blazers, Rockets are discussed)

    Nah, he's goin' JJ style. Get a big A.S.G. COACH tattooed across his neck. Then when media criticizes his substitution patterns, he just loosens his tie and says, 'read it, bitches.'

    Yup, if the Raptors are still in first place in early February, Casey will be an ASG coach. In regards to your original question though, no I don't see the Raptors playing well enough for that to...

    Yeah, I like Pangos as a future guard in the program, though possibly not as soon as next summer's qualifying. But maybe.

    The strength of our team is going to be our ability to stretch the floor...

    I think some of the international vets may be in the mix too: Levon Kendall, Doornekamp, Jermaine Anderson. Those names might not be exciting high-upside guys, but in a tournament we NEED to do well...

    I dunno, one of his first official appearances as commissioner was attending this game, (featuring this moment), which has made me suspicious that there's something not on the up-and-up between him...

    Shame on your click-bait title, James, why don't you throw a Kardashian reference in there, too? Okay, kidding on that. But I just want to point out that the title of this thread doesn't exactly...

    Based on this fan video here, it really does look like contact.

    And even this is hardly conclusive, it just looks like...

    Definitely would like to see more of that. However, I believe in the Chicago game, we saw a version of this a couple times where Ross went around the screen, but instead of going all the way out to...

    For all the microanalysis of last night's game, nobody that I've seen has pointed out that the first shift, Valanciunas came out and played essentially how he needs to play for this team to be...

    To me, it's also about role definition, which has been a popular talking point for Casey this year. Guys are being taught what their primary roles on the team will be. When they show that they can...

    You guys and your metaphors, you're missing the obvious one: the Raptors are like a beached whale, seemingly weak and immobile, on the verge of death, and the other team is a pack of coyotes that...

    In Sagarin's NBA rankings, (also fully computer-derived, like Hollinger's), Raptors are also third, but looking behind the numbers are actually 2nd in two of of the three systems, ahead of GSW and...

    Twice, he drove the lane, got in the air, spun, and found guys for wide open 3s (I think one was Lowry, the other Ross?). Hate seeing a guy leave his feet to pass to a guy behind him, but when it's...

    Obviously this is cherry-picking a range that makes us look good, but:

    Highest win totals over last 70 games:
    Spurs: 50
    Clippers: 49
    Raptors: 48
    OKC: 47
    Houston: 47
    Golden State: 47...

    Crazy that we're going for our seventh win of the season in game #8. To put that into context, last four seasons, we've gotten our seventh win in games 19, 26, 21, and 18. It's been more than a...

    I can abide with him being a streaky shooter, as long as he becomes consistent and locked in every night on defense. Because everyone has bad shooting nights (some more than others), but good players...
