    I'm okay with that first half. Rough fouls for Ross, but once he and DeRozan settle down I don't think New Jersey can contend with the inside-outside game. The Raptors' ability to draw fouls inside...

    They'll settle it down. Need to keep going inside where they have the advantage, but defence is definitely worrying right now, good position coming way too easy for the Nets and help is slow.

    Yeah, I mentioned this elsewhere, but experienced teams (Miami, San Antonio, Dallas, Memphis) are typically very good on the road. Brooklyn is 2nd worst amongst playoff teams. Experienced teams are...

    Yes, but also I'm a big fan of the analytics side. You might say that I'm an analrapaholic.

    Raps in 5. Fanchie's summary is pretty-much exactly what I'm thinking, except perhaps switching the blowout to game 2.

    My reasons for thinking this isn't going to be as close a series as many...

    I have a hard time envisioning McDermott as a Raptors pick, but I think you're right about him being in a higher tier than most other players remaining in the SI mock. The one exception to that is...

    I like this campaign for the sense of place that it has; and I say that as a non-Torontonian. I can't speak to how much it does or doesn't capture the spirit of the city, but at least it attempts to...

    Refereeing is going to be a factor, but not necessarily in terms of any bias. These are two of the highest fouls-per-possession and fouls-drawn-per-possession teams in the league, especially once you...

    The Indiana New Year's day game. For me that was the most impressive performance, hanging with one of the true elite teams of the league (back when they actually were elite, 25-5 going into that...

    Since nothing in the OP specifically state 'players', I'm going to say that Casey is our potential X-factor. He was brought in, in part because of the exceptional job Dallas had done making defensive...

    I'm in favour of managing starters' minutes and keeping everyone under 30, and beyond that, trying to win. Send the message to the players that we don't care who we're going to play, we're going to...

    I believe we've only got a late start compared to the Chicago/Charlotte game. Wizards and Nets games also start at 8 EST.

    I'd really like for us to get Grant. If he's available at 20, he might be BPA, but he'll almost certainly be the best positional/style fit for us; he could be that guy who can eventually guard the...

    Yeah, he could move up into the lottery (or even top 10) next year. Or could drop out of the first round, but I'd bet on him moving up.

    Washington is now only one-and-a-half games back of Brooklyn (and Washington holds the tiebreaker). Washington has Miami and Boston, while Brooklyn has Orlando, NYK, and Cleveland. So, still a...

    I think Jonas might plead guilty to driving with open alcohol in the car, and dodge driving while under the influence. But that's a total uneducated guess.

    Here's the only site I know of that has fourth quarter +/-, which to me is more important than 4th quarter scoring.

    Yeah, all the guys I want us to draft in the five spots right before us. That's probably how it'll go down. If any of those 13-19 guys drop to 20, that's who I'd want.
