    I just edited the thread title to reflect the score from tonight and am just realizing we have to suffer through another 62 games of this. Shoot me now.

    There must be a ton of interest in Lowry, I figure it's just a matter of landing the best package for him. I want one of Phoenix picks
    I want a young asset, a 2nd round pick, and the slew of losing that only Julyan Stone running your offense can bring

    So how huge is Friday's game versus Philly, and we are getting all the new players dressed up, I want the Raps to lose but in reality I think they will win this one but after this season is over this is type of game we might regret to win at.

    We lost to the Spurs... not the end of the world if we were a contender. This wasn't a terrible game for us: Amir continued his hot streak and Derozan is improving as a play maker. Our bench is awful but we knew that. This game was far more watchable then most of our previous attempts at playing basketball this year. I actually didn't see the game, but more assists usually means better basketball).

    30 - Utah (4 wins)
    T28 - NY & Milwaukee (5 wins)
    T26 - Sacramento & Orlando (6 wins)
    T23 - Toronto & Brooklyn & Philadelphia (7 wins)

    WED
    - Orlando @ Charlotte
    - Utah @ Sacramento

    - Sacramento just added Gay
    - Brooklyn is getting healthy and could be turning it around

    --> wins by Orlando & Sacramento tomorrow and Toronto is suddenly in 5-way tie for 4th fewest wins

    So I was at the game tonight and I have to say, this was a fine tanking game. We played well in the first half and then the Spurs decided it was time to stop messing around and kick our ass, then Casey decided to match our pitiful bench against the Spurs' super-deep bench and we lost. But it was mostly a fun game all the way through, which is all I really want this season. I don't care about winning, I care that I get to see Ross drop numerous daggers and Jonas make some monster dunks and Buycks channel his inner Nick Young, because that's fun.

    From a rebuild perspective I'm not sure what more you could want. Kyle was in fine form (4-10 shooting, but strong on threes, plus seven assists and seven rebounds), Amir was godlike as always, DeMar wasn't efficient but made up for it by contributing seven dimes of his own. We managed to lose while still making all our trade assets look like real catches. That's great news.

    I think this was as good as game as both sides can agree on for now. The Raps competed hard, and played well in 2 1/2 quarters but ultimately fell to a better team.

    But we saw some good things: better ball movement, more PnR, guys fighting hard, DD's 7 assists, Lowry with a good night.

    We need to work on our transition offence. At one point in the 3rd Q, we had a 3 on 1, with Lowry, Ross and Demar. Ross trailed behind Lowry while Demar was split out to the left. Lowry dropped the ball to Ross, but because he was running the same lane the Spurs defender (Parker I think) didn't have to move to be guarding both KL and Ross. Ross needs to get out wide and/or Lowry needs to get the ball to Demar who had the open lane.

    The Spurs showed why they should have won the title last year -- crisp passes, spacing and overall execution on offense. DeMar had to create plays & I'm happy to see him drop 7 dimes -- shows that he's a willing passer.

    Valanciunas and Ross are raw -- need to improve a lot by the end of the season. Valanciunas is not smooth at all (yet) but he has a nice touch around the rim. Ross has no in between game (yet) -- either a 3 or in the paint -- which is good for 'stats' but you need that in your arsenal.

    I still like Buycks over Stone -- not sure why -- but I think it's cause Stone is hopeless on offense. I'm happy they released Augustine instead of Buycks (more potential there).

    I still wish we traded Daye instead of Acy but we would have had to wait until the 15th & who knows what damage Gay could have done within that time frame.

    Overall, it's a lot easier to watch the Raptors knowing we're going to try to develop our young guns instead of losing with the best we have.

    P.S. Fields is terrible -- as always

    I just wanted to say that Amir's NBA.com hightlight-of-the-night block was about a million times more impressive in person. The fact that the camera does it no justice and it was still the highlight of the night tells you just how powerful it was.

    Saw the first quarter at a pub before I had to leave. Raps looked terrifice, Val was unstoppable. Then I had to leave and missed the inevitable Spurs comeback. I may start doing this all year: watch the first quarter, turn it off. Was very enjoyable.

    Leonard's reaction was the best. He might as well have been a chalk outline on the floor, as the Raptors took off on the break.
