    Re-watching the 1st quarter again and JV and Amir need a LOT of work, specifically JV on defence. He still gets really lost and doesn't know how to position himself and that results in poor defensive rotations... Perhaps he just didn't have much hustle that night.

    The moment Fields came into the rotation *replacing jv* when the Raptors responded to the Knicks Small ball *amir @ the 5*, the defence tightened up so much... holy moly.

    I didn't watch the game but I swear Amir is our best defender. I'm shocked you think he needs 'A LOT' of work. And Casey made it seem that it was more the defensive rebounds that were bad in the first quarter not the defense itself. Even though rebounding is a part of defense.

    That's what he meant bad defensive positioning leads to Offensive rebounds

    They need a LOT of work because of JV. Amir has to compensate for JV's inappropriate floor spacing and positioning that he has to do double duty.

    JV's like....slow.

    He stays in the key where he should, Knicks run a couple of P&R's from left side to right. He stands right around where the knicks pick is and then it clogs up the Raptors wings.

    Tyson Chandler in a PnR shoots a 10 footer and it's a wide open shot while JV is underneath the rim.

    It's like he's one defensive play slower than the offensive team. I really wish he could be more vocal in defence... I think it would help these situations.

    DJ didn't play much. I dont think he played at all in the 2nd half.

    Right now i would think Stone is the backup.

    DJ started playing in the 2nd period. He performed very poorly.

    Offensively he doesn't make the best decisions because sometimes he forces up his shot.

    Defensively he doesn't always cover his man and ends up being a spectator sometimes. This might have been because the Knicks were running Iso's, but there was a lot of distance.

    He's also undersized, so when off. players post up around the top of the key, they get a clean jump shot or floater.

    It's difficult to see where they are impacting the game. I'm under the impression that Bayno and Nurse have been helping individuals with their offense as per interviews with Terrance Ross etc. Bayno is a player development coach from what I understand.

    I think we'll see more of Nurse's offensive schemes being used by Casey during the Season. It's difficult to point them out now as I re-watch the game.

    As per reddit comments, they're running PnR's w/ dribble pen when there is enough time on the clock. If time shortens up, time to do the 1 man iso on either side or ball rotation from left to right with the pop-3 or long-2. If the dribble pen doesn't work, kickout to the rotation strategy again. Naturally JV and Amir are in there to scruff, or at least, they are supposed to. Didn't see that from JV much this game.

    Either that, or Jonas was intentionally giving Chandler the room to take that jumper (a shot that hasn't been in his arsenal before).

    I'd be daring Chandler to shoot from outside 10 feet myself.

    Sherman hamilton's in game comments was that Casey was yelling at him to step out and the commentators desk is right next to the bench so i'll take his word for it?????
