    I thought the Raps played pretty well except for a stretch in the 2nd. Demar, Gay and Ross were steady (Gay always gives me a couple of plays where I just shake my head), JV di okay except for fouls, but he played Mahamoud amnd Bozer pretty well I thought and showed a nice left handed hook, Luca and Anderson almost looked under control with their minutes.

    Overall good game.

    Should have mentioned Quincy for some nice play on both ends.

    Sigh. Raptors almost lost this game in the 4th because AS USUAL Casey stuck too long with the reserves. But anyway, a 101-97 win over a team missing Noah, Rose, Gibson and Deng isn't all that impressive. This team has LONG ways to go.

    Bulls team lacked talent tonight, but there's no denying they're a very good team because of coaching systems, and players that buy in. I'm shocked this team is even in the playoffs this comfortably without Rose.

    It wasn't too impressive, but it was a good win against a better system and coach. I agree with Casey and him going back to sticking with subs far too long in the fourth quarter. He was actually fairly solid with his rotations otherwise. Maybe it's because Gay and JV were in foul trouble for the most part.

    looks like he lost his footing, fell forwards into gay's elbow. if anything looks like he might just have strained a muscle with the way his body was.

    Amir is a warrior did a real good job on Boozer tonight. Not playing Fields was a good move. Acy is pretty versatile too. deRozan played very well as did Lowry (Double-Double)

    rotations was understandable Ross JV and Gay were soaking up fouls throughout the game.

    I hope (and sorta think) so. I'm hoping it's just something like a bad case of torticollis...that shit can be extremely painful and spontaneous.

    I've got this game recorded - haven't watched it yet.

    Looking forward to seeing Chicago. They are missing 3 of top 4 players and Raps still struggle to close it out. Also looking forward to more closely watching what they do on offense. Is it ISO central in Chicago as it is in Toronto? Oh yeah, did Toronto's offense revolve around ISO again? I am assuming yes based on post of numerous "iso iso iso etc." from earlier in thread.

    Saw boxscore, Boozer shot bad but 2 assists shy of a triple double? Impressive.

    From a basketball perspective Boozer/Robinson for Bargnani/Lucas would have been a no brainer - if true, of course.

    A fair amount of isos, but also they had stretches of solid ball movement. I think they need to practice with some kind of tool that gives extra incentive. Like a ball that gives a shock if it sticks in your hands for more than a second.

    At this point we'd only be worrying about what team we'd be playing in the playoffs, not struggling for a spot.

    well they were missing 2/4 of their best when they ended the heats winning streak too. i would say joakim is arguably the better player than deng.

    Which further shows my point of what a good system and solid coaching can do.

    Don't forget having and bringing in players that fit the system (Asik/Gibson).
