    Does anyone know if our rookies are back for this game?

    Raptors tweet:

    Ross (left ankle sprain) and Fields (strep throat) both available to play today for #Raptors vs. Nets. Valanciunas (sore neck) will sit out.

    The Nets broacast said that Ross was sitting out....is there a confirmation either way? Is he dressed but probably sitting out?

    You know the start is good when DeMar hits a three.

    Nice shot by Rudy to end the quarter.

    Man Lowry's having a game. It shows he doesn't need to be scoring to contribute. He's drawing all kinds of fouls and getting some scrappy rebounds.

    Yeah, I think he's finally figured out his role, which has been ever-changing this year. I'm starting to feel a bit optimistic about how this group can do with their current chemistry plus a full training camp behind them.

    I have not been impressed with the Nets at all this season from the few times I've seen them.

    Sidenote: they have a decent broadcast crew at least. Fairly entertaining and with an acceptable degree of homerism.

    I've counted him boxing out Reggie Evans at least three times. That takes some serious balls.

    I've also been impressed with Acy's D. After getting beat by Blatche once, he buckled down and played a lot tighter. I hope they keep him long-term. He's exactly the kind of big it's always good to have on the bench. He's always ready to play with a high energy level, and he's a team-first guy.

    For some reason I feel like Acy was a Casey guy all the way. That given it was a 2nd round pick, BC may have given Casey lots of input as to who he'd like to bring in.

    Very decent crew I'd say, at least as far as the homerism/objectivity goes. They seem to do a decent job on preparing for the opponent as well.

    Likely considering Ross was a Casey pick as well if my memory is correct from last summer. During lockout, Casey reportedly spent a lot of time at UW.

    Don't fall for it.

    This happens every year.

    Yeah, I think BC just didn't care about his picks in this draft. All the players he wanted were projected to go, and ended up going, before his pick. Not that he wasn't happy to draft Ross, but it was the "best of the rest" situation to him.

    *And I think it's fairly obvious BC doesn't like 2nd round picks. Probably would've traded it if he could've gotten something he liked.

    I like that Demar has hit 2 corner 3s this game.

    Can the Raptors please stop biting on simple pumpfakes?

    Man it is so frustrating to watch when Rudy and Demar both play well at the same time, because you just know that they are not able to do it consistently.
