    Quick first half analysis:

    Parker has shown me zip. 2-8 from the field and both makes have been dunks. Forcing it and seemingly disregarding Blue Devils' offense at times. Duke is thriving in transition but can't really do anything when the Cuse zone is set, pts coming off mostly offensive rebounds and 3's. 6-18 3PT thus far, passable but could be better.

    As for Dawkins, he's shot the ball ok (2-6 3PT) but hasn't really done much on D. Though he was guarding Cooney early on, and when Dawkins subbed off, Cooney went for 7 straight points.

    Ennis looks good. Showing multiple offensive weapons.

    What about Fair, the star of the first half?

    Ennis, Grant, Fair, Parker and Hood are headed for the NBA. I don't get that Dawkins is on NBA draft radar. I haven't seen that on mock drafts.

    Yeah, Fair was nice.

    Syracuse needs to pick it up on the defensive glass. Just WAY too many opportunities for Duke thus far this second half.

    Taking over now with Parker/Jefferson out w/ 4 fouls. He's been sensational.

    WOW. WHAT A GAME. Parker/Jefferson both fouled out, Ennis hits 2 FT's to make it a 3pt game with 4 seconds left. Duke runs up the floor and Rasheed Sulaimon hits a three at the buzzer. Overtime.

    I am so sold on Ennis. I want him.

    Dawkins finishing 5-11, 4-9 from 3.
    I think he's gotta be on 2nd Round Radars. Especially considering the performances he's had in the past for Duke.

    Dawkins is pretty much exclusively a shooter though, he's not known for his defense at all, infact thats why he gets few minutes some nights. Got a real pretty shot though.

    First time I've actually watched Ennis tonight, really does look like a good NBA pro prospect, just so poised. You don't need to be super athletic if you have all the changes of pace and moves that he has along with what looks to be very nice touch. More so than Marcus Smart who also lacks athleticism but kinda just charges at the rim and struggles to finish.

    good time to be a Canadian Basketball fan, and that's an understatement

    DraftExpress has their newest mock up, and are projecting Ennis as a top-10 pick now, with the Raps taking Stauskas at #19, Glenn Robinson III with the Kings second-rounder and Jordan MacRae with the Thunder pick:

    I'd be fairly happy with that haul but fairly redundant to draft 2 6'6 wingers with DD/Ross already. I'd prefer one of those picks be a PG. They also have Zach Lavine going 26th, and he's someone I'd consider at 19 if he's there (some feel he's top 10, but I'm fairly certain that's been said about 20 players by now).

    If Lavine is there when the Raptors pick and they pass on him, I will riot

    Draftexpress' mock draft at this point isn't really tailored to team needs and such at all. It's basically just slotting players where they should go with where teams are currently drafting.

    why would the raps draft 3 shooting guards?

    i like stauskas' game. he'd be a solid role player. personally if it was up to me i'd rather swing for the fences a bit more... but i wouldn't be upset with the pick.

    nbadraft.net has Toronto drafting PG Vasilje Micic. Kind of reminds me of Vasquez. Anybody know anything about him? How is his defense?

    Gary Harris is another 3 and D guy i really like

    Jerami Grant really intrigues me though. Has a ton of Paul George to him. In terms of potential i think he's a top 5 player from this draft. He's a guy i'd certainly move up for.

    What this Raps team need is a PF. Just noticed that nbadraft.net has Aaron Gordon going at #18. That is CRAZY. Pretty sure he'll be a top 10 pick same with Zach LaVine. No way he's there at 19. I expect both to be a top 10 pick this year.

    I've long touted Gary Harris, but he is certainly going to be long gone by the time the Raps pick. Probably the best SG in the draft.
