    This game was fun to watch.

    Demar and Rudy played well.

    Lowry played like a regular Kyle Lowry.

    Amir proved he can be a starting power forward in the league.

    Aaron Gray is actually a solid back-up centre.

    Quincy Acy is the player of the game with his energy and blue collar mentality. Loved the blocked shots, standing up for teammates - pushing Nazr out of way to help Lowry up, getting right into Rip's face - and the underrated skill offensively.

    I still hate Alan Anderson and John Lucas.

    What happened to Landry Fields tonight?
    Agree on almost everything ... IMO, Aaron Gray is a solid 3rd string utility center. He does a lot of things well but he's so clumsy finishing shots under. But yeah, I don't mind him as a 3rd stringer.

    I hate John Lucas more than Alan Anderson. Anderson can actually create for others & at his position, I can understand why he would shoot more than others. Lucas, on the other hand, can't facilitate the offense if his life depended on it.

    Quincy Acy is growing on me. I like him a lot.

    DeMar couldn't break down Marco Bellinelli off the bounce and that concerns me a lot moving forward.

    So Casey basically said moving forward Acy will likely be seeing his minutes as his natural 4 and some at the 3... Interesting its what he was doing in the D League.

    I was at the game tonight, extremely entertaining to watch. (besides all of the Rudy long jumpers missed)

    Big thing to take away from this game is that Quincy is a rotation player on this team. He brings hustle and heart similar to Amir, almost posted a double-double tonight and fired up the crowd with his blocks. Especially one on Boozer in 1st quarter. He was the first guy off the bench tonight. Call me crazy but I think if JV's done for the season, start Amir at center and put Acy at the 4.

    Also loved when Rip Hamilton was ejected, and when Boozer fouled out. Crowd went bezerk when DeMar missed the three for pizza.

    Can't wait to watch this game! Did not expect a 2nd win over the bulls with deng back.
    Kind of odd that it usually takes a series of injuries for another player to break out (not that acy broke out but looks like he had a good game)

    It was a great game you will enjoy it, Acy had a game that isnt just shown in stats played like a man tonight. Hard not to love the guy, you dont have to be amazing but playing with all your heart night in night out demands respect and hes a great guy to have on what was before a pretty weak minded and emotionally blahhhh Raptors team.

    This was one of the most fun games to watch all season.

    Lowry played really well tonight. He's getting a really good sense of where his soldiers are, and I think Casey is trusting him a bit more with the offense.

    Ends up being Lowry good = Raptors good.

    Bulls didn't have legs today.

    Do DeMar and Rudy overlap each others game, something a long the lines of that. Matt's like: "They are athletic wings who fill the lane, but they both need to work on their 3 point shots this summer" which is pretty accurate. I don't mind keeping them both, but they have to become better shooters and passers

    I think Lowry looked that much better tonight because Lucas was so terrible. I hope we can address the back up point guard position in the summer -- hopefully land a guy who is not trigger happy every time down the court. Lucas really pissed me off tonight & as much as I respect the fact that he's a good shooter, he forces up way too many jumpers where his role asks for him to get his dudes going.

    There was a significant swing in momentum when Lucas was at the helm & I wish to not see that next season.

    Quincy Acy is climbing up there in terms of my favourite Raptor players this season. It's hard not to like him because he brings it every time he's on the court. He's a really good athlete which makes up for his size. He has good length as well to make up for his 6'7" frame & he is really mobile on defense. I was watching him solely on rotations & he's actually ahead of Jonas in terms of understanding rotations. He gives you the ability to trap the pick and roll because he is that agile. Not to mention, the combination of Amir and Quincy on defense -- solid tandem.

    Quincy Acy has been playing better than most rookies look what a motor can do for you and overall defensive knowledge. You can say Bulls never had legs but Raps never had JV, Ross or a back up PG or else a lot of those pitches to Gray would have been JV finishing or going to the line.

    He is a totally different player after coming back from the D-league.
    His confidence and his pace is much better. He doesn't look... AS MUCH... of a bumbling fool as he previously did with his court positioning.

    Looking forward to see how he plays after the summer.

    Building basically exploded on this one...I forgot about that. Loved the swipe of the ground afterward as well.

    Acy looks like he is pretty intelligent on the floor. He knows how to affect the game without necessarily being involved in the play (strong off-ball screens, good positioning, no negative to defensive/offensive flow, great hustle and intensity)

    Though I would like to point out, contrary to every opposing announcer's talking point, Acy reminds me very very little of Reggie Evans. Save the beard ofcourse!
