So Quincy and Novak didnt see burn?
Hooray we won a preseason game against a Boston team that remained competitive for most of the game with a big three of Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries and Jeff Green
which is to say, as I have said before, the preseason is meaningless
Jv Ross dd gay at times, raptors win . How did olynkx fall to boston. He should be our starting power forward this year
DD is a player that thrives when he isn't the focal point of the offense. He does better off-the-ball than on it, and also performs better when the defense is keying in on other players. Bringing him off the bench would force him to become a shot creator, which isn't something he excels at whatsoever. Talk about a great way to reduce a guy's positive impact on the game.
oh my god.
I fucking love tlyer hansbrough
keep Tyler on the bench and let him beast. Let Amir continue to help JV develop
Ross made some really good decisions today, looked very spry out there
I'm sorry everyone. You are welcome to disagree with me on my Hansbrough starting point. You will just be wrong is all.

honestly, its entirely possible that prob against some teams you might see hansborough get the start, just from the way i know casey likes to experiments with rotations.
but basically amir and jv have a better dynamic, with amir being around/outside the paint and jv inside under the basket. hansborough is better defensively under the basket so you have an overlap with jv. and you prob wont be seeing jv coming off the bench.
tyler is a perfect combo w/ gray to make up for lost speed and hustle
Really liked Tyler's game (as mentioned by others).. He'll be loved like Reggie, JYD and Keon Clark were. Unlike Reggie he can actually get to the FT line and score points though which is nice. That aside.. I think the bench still has issues... and if DD/RG are not firing they will have long nights. They need a solid 6th man who can come in and get a bunch of points. Hopefully Ross turns into that guy but he has a long way to go before he does.
As for Tyler starting.. I still think chemistry is important for the starting line up. Amir deserves that spot. He's been the Raptors MVP the last three seasons.
Raptors looked like they were coasting to me. However, that's the best that I've ever seen Ross. The Celtics commentators were awful as usual. The new nickname for 2/3 of the Raps was "that guy"...Crash looked healthy for a change, Green looked lost in the new Celtics offense and the Raps were using their deep bench early. Glad to see Rudy get out of that funk and Tyler did his thing.
Really hard to assess Raptor bigs when they're playing against a squad whose best big had back surgery last season. Got to get those turnovers down though.
