    Nice to see Ross get the extended time. He definitely earned it. I hope he shows more of this for the rest of the season, because it shows how good a feel for the game he has. Pretty good instincts. Soft touch. I thought he played solid D tonight, and I think he does have the chance to be a very good defensive SG.

    Rudy Gay and his leadership + amir just being the warrior hes been all season is the high points of this game, really looks like the kind of game the Bargnani Raps pre Gay Era would have went out and find a way to lose. DeMar Lowry just werent giving a shit tonight and you cant have that in any game.

    Holy Softies!

    DeRozan should start trying to dunk on people or shut the fuck up..... seriously. This is what pisses me off about him. Go strong ALL the time or McRoberts blocks the shit out of you.
    +1 Been sayin this for a long time about DeRozan. I'm not asking him to dunk the ball whenever he drives. What i want to see him do is attack the rim STRONG. No more SOFT LAYUPS.

    A win for me means:

    - Rudy Gay shoots higher than 39%
    - JV plays more than 30 mins
    - Ross plays more than 20 mins
    - Anderson barely plays at all
    - Ball movement
    Almost called it.

    Raps gamble and dont bring it against teams that suck, and Raps need to learn how to run the fast break too athletic to botch easy buckets like they have been....

    Got to the line 8 times for 7 points, 4 rebound, 4 assists. I will take that from Derozan as a bad game.

    that's not what I meant at all, I meant he should've chosen that as a career. He has very little feel for the game of basketball, he always makes such stupid decisions at the rim.

    Ohhh lol. That's my bad. But yeah I agree, he needs to be more definitive as to what he wants to do at the rim...I think indecision is bringing him down.

    i like the way ross takes it to the rim. He always takes a high percentage shot, he either crams that shit on your head or lays it up off the glass.

    Terrence Ross has definitely proven me wrong. This guy is going to be something real good. True talk.

    He was driving tonight, and I loved seeing that aggressiveness, and what is awesome about it, is he has a quick first step, and terrific elevation, so he can blow by defenders, and shoot/float right over top defenders. He's got to make better decisions offensively sometimes, especially the shot selection, but that's all in confidence, and him being a rookie.

    Ross is also a good defender, but has poor fundamentals, jumps far too often, and gets beat so easily, and with that athleticism, that's unacceptable. Anyways, his defensive ceiling is higher than his offensive one in my opinion, but that's not putting down the offense, this guy can be a more efficient, smarter, aggressive J.R Smith type. Hopefully he can be better, but that's what I see right now.

    Rudy looked FIRE in the game too, the guy looked like he was playing for something. (Maybe all these bloggers and fans finally getting to him?)

    As much as he had a bad game, he did go to the free throw line, which means he was attacking regardless of the way he was finishing - DUNK THE BALL - and doing other things on the floor.

    4 of the 5 almost impossible, odd one out being ball movement. 5 out of 5 almost impossible when Alan Anderson's on the floor.
    Hmmm guess you were way of on Rudy's shooting percentage.

    Weirdest thing about the "is Demar aggressive debate?" is definitely the discrepancy between fts and dunks. He is one of the better players in the league (especially considering he gets absolutely no star-whistle) at getting to the line. He's probably one of the worst among those players at finishing with dunks.
    I generally defend his aggression, because of the FTs. I more question his bball IQ because of the dunks, in that he'll pull up or change shots to take a softer one, thinking he can get it around the D, instead of just going for teh shot that if he gets through the D is near 100% and more likely to draw a foul (even one that is a lucky call). They need to make a tape of every play he could've even attempted a dunk and make him watch it every day for the whole summer.

    If he went strong hard like he did versus Roy Hibbert (missed, but was fouled) I would start a thread to raise his number to the rafters now. He would not have to retire. Just put it up there now.

    I think its cause Rudy comes from a winning team and is a competitor himself that he always plays his game, We cant have him be a part of Raps losing nature. Good signs from the leader tonight as Lowry and DeRozan seemed to have checked out..
