    Default Raptors @Bobcats: Nothing else to play for but culture change and youth development.

    Raptors can do nothing but spend the last bit of this season developing the youngings (JV, Ross) and establish a culture that beats up on teams weaker than them. Raps have to acquire that killer instinct sometimes I believe they play with pity on weaker teams naw every night whoever you are playing you have to go Hard.

    last 15 games is it? Raps gotta develop a Harder mentality, I wanna see some blowouts of teams like Charlotte.

    Oh, please stop with this WINNING CULTURE nonsense. Are we really doing this again? I thought we already established a WINNING CULTURE by winning all those meaningless games at the end of last year?

    POUND THE ROCK! YEEEAAARRRRGGGGHHHHHHH!

    LOL I wont call it a winning culture becuase Bargs was still a part of the team... #FreeRapptorfans enjoy the last 15 games with what will likely be our starters next season and no Bargs...

    Let's face it, we won't get a top3 pick this year and a meaningles win is better than a meaningles loss.

    I thought we already agreed that it's almost impossible to establish a winning culture here...

    Anyways, Go Raps! I'll still watch, even though last time we played the game was horrifically sloppy and made me want to kick a small child.

    In general, yes, wins are better than losses.

    But let's try not to derive any meaning from wins that come during the final 15 games. Nothing that happens between now and April 17th will spill over into next year. These games are literally meaningless....especially with the Bobcats tanking hard.

    With 6 months between regular season games, any culture/attitude/style/etc. gained during the final 15 games will need to be re-learned at training camp.

    Yeah, the only real "purpose" to these games is getting JV and Ross extra reps against NBA competition now so that they/coaches know exactly what/how hard to work on their games in the summer.

    Raptors play tonight is aggressive but silly aggressive lol. Lowry is really working on his playmaking and finding his teammates his offense isnt going anywhere but next season we need him to balance that.

    Wow. Rudy/Demar having a big first quarter.

    Granted, this game means nothing, but it's nice to see them both starting off and shooting well.

    (Not watching the game, only looking at Box Scores, in class, haha)

    Totally confused why pietrus is on. Also this game is horrible so far. Only up by 1? Wasn't it like 17-6 at some point.

    Rudy Gay is so fucking careless with the ball. No wonder he averages like 9 TO's a game....

    We always talk about how the Raps play to the level of their opponent. Well tonight, early in the 2nd the Raps had a lineup of Amir, AA, Ross, Pietrus and Lucas. I mean, what the fuck was that all about?

    That was AN AWFUL Bench lol wow the bench for the Raptors is so goddam inept Anderson and Lucas omg just everything a 3 ball.

    Fields is sick, so Im guessing it was stone cold Pietrus or Ice Burg Klieza lol
