    Default What? No Gamethread? Boston @ Raps

    Game's already underway.

    My only thought so far...Lowry and Jonas need to get their timing down on the p'n'r

    I love that all our offensive plays come out of the post

    Yeah, that's really how it should be.

    Great start by the Raptors, they're really trying to post up DeRozan, Valanciunas and Gay.

    Great D so far. It reminds me of 1st year Casey philosophy. All that talk about getting multiple stops in a row being a big key to winning a game.

    Good balance so far. DeRozan continues to impress.

    I think that's what will see a lot of all season! Really like the play they use to get JV on the left block.

    I always tune in late and miss the first few minutes so far this pre season!

    Definitely looking less lost on offence. The starting 5 isn't going to be the issue this year, they'll compete with anyone in the league (I know this is Boston, but still), it's a question of whether the bench can keep them in games.

    The odd day where the starters don't get it done though...look out.

    Boston should be quite horrible this year, I'd be very concerned if we weren't dominating.

    Jeff Green making it rain!!

    I'd live with letting him shoot that, even though he is hitting them.

    I don't think the Raptors are good enough to compete with the best of the best.

    I don't think they have enough of an edge to beat the shit out of teams they are suppose to or should beat the shit out of.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    Not sure that's true. I agree we shouldn't generally be losing to Boston, but these are all NBA players. Anything can happen in a single game. If that kind of logic held true, Philly wouldn't win a game all season. And we all know they'll get a few wins (if only a few...).

    Kyle Lowry moving very well with the ball.

    Rudy Gay looking... stubborn.
    Some players really should pay attention to analytics...

    Well, maybe not consistently. But even still, that's a pretty good description of an 8th seed. Just sayin...

    True, even the worst teams win occasionally, but that is often the case of fatigue (back to backs), injury, or looking ahead in the schedule as much as it is about talent.

    The Celtics do have pros on their roster, but they also have no NBA calibre PG with Rondo out, a rookie head coach (who I think will be great), and several new players. At this point, as in tonight, the Raps should be able to dominate.

    They have plenty of time to jell and improve. The team already looks more coherent on both offense and defense.

    First quarter D looked good, despite 26 points by Boston. That really could easily be 20 if Green missed those two random 3s that you clearly want him taking.
