    Correct.

    Rudy was such a big part of game plan that should only be a matter of time before teams adapt and scouting reports are updated.

    Really liked what I saw out of JV tonight.
    I love that he raged right through the closing seconds.
    That may have been the best game of his career, and it wasn't good enough for him.
    I like that a lot.
    Great sign.

    And Patterson as well.
    His shot is smooth, he can move well with the ball, and his defense was absolutely perfect at times.
    Anybody else notice that?
    I mean perfect.

    I think Vasquez is an excellent point-guard for us right now.
    He will help to establish an offensive system that flows through the bigs.
    Amir is hugging him right now.

    And on that note - Amir's stock is through the fucking roof.
    I don't want to trade this guy.
    Mysterious injury please.

    It's really sad the see that Rudy was actually THE problem. Casey has to take some blame too but no where near as much as I thought he would need to take. It probably was like 85-90% Rudy's fault. How one man could kill ball movement the way he did is astonishing.

    Atleast the Rudy Gay era was better then the Bargnani era for me atleast

    If Lowry gets traded, he should get an applause when he returns to the ACC. I've come to like the guy and his play

    Yeah?

    I thought he played fine.

    It's funny you say that.

    His shot selection was a little off (I think his confidence was a little too high, frankly), but otherwise I continue to be impressed by his development.
    It seems to me that he gets a better sense for the court every game.

    What didn't you like from him tonight?

    I agree Ross found a different way to help the team win without scoring the ball.

    Not a good night for the tankers. The competition stepped up. Bring on Sunday.

    i see he improved a bit during the night. when i was watching he was something like 2/10. he had good rebounding and assist numbers in this game too. so i take some critique back. he didn't do as bad as i thought.

    I agree and like 2 or 3 of Terrence's shots were with the clock running down and he had to do something, which is not his game.

    T Ross is actually a much better player than people give him credit for. The dude is extremely talented, he's quiet and calm. He's someone i want the Raptors to keep unless someone offers up a 1st rounder for him

    i have to say that despite being on the tanker side, the last couple of games have actually been *fun* to watch. i didn't expect raptors to win tonight. a lot of last years unexpected wins were only because of random scrub players like AA or JLIII suddenly having hot hands and singlehandedly winning some tough games for the raptors.

    tonight, no one specific really took over. everyone had a great combined effort and actually played ball together, rather than trouncing down the court as 5 individuals fumbling the ball and hoping it randomly goes in somehow.

    Problem is (depending on your stance I suppose), that means the team is actually good. Not Western Conference good. But .500 good at least. They aren't winning by fluke from what I can tell.

    This kind of play is entirely sustainable, it's the kind of play that won us a bunch of games in 06/07 (and of course the kind of play that had us bounced in the first round).

    i totally agree its a problem. i also expect patterson to sputter out and salmons to be useless again (look at any kings fan forum and they're all super glad hes gone). so far we beat some shitty teams and a good team with key injured players. despite all the ball movement, we didn't beat the one good team in this run: the spurs.

    If we had lost by a few points to the Spurs, I might have more faith in the current team as a legitimate contender. But the thing is we got completely outplayed and blown out. :\
