The last quarter was blah.
Good win though.
Glad I stayed.
Who would have thought we are 16-15 with they way the season started

Reporter: "How can you say that?"
Ujiri: "Because I can say that."
Useless facts about both teams tonight:
1) Jonas and Vessley are on the floor together: It seems that Toronto made a wise choice in the K. Irving draft of 2011 when Jonas was taken 5th and J.Vessely taken 6th. Vessley looked like a pylon in the 4th Qtr.
2) John Wall and Patrick Patterson have another reunion from the 2010 Kentucky Wildcat Draft. I have to point out that five Kentucky WildCats were drafted from Calipari's hype-elite squad: J.Wall, D. Cousins, P.Patterson, E.Bledsoe, and Daniel Orton. Besides Orton, the other four players have carved out very productive or IMPRESSIVE careers in the NBA.
3) Dwayne Casey and Randy Whitman are coaching against each other: under odd circumstances these two met during 2006-2007 under the Minnesota Timberwolves campaign. The incompetence of Minnesota GM Kevin McHale fired Casey for Randy Whitman, and Randy Whitman decided to tank the Wolves to the finish 12-30. They then drafted Corey Brewer from Florida with the 7th pick, and it was the wrong pick for the team; passing up J.Noah, Stuckey, Nick Young, pre-prick Rudy Fernadez, J.Dudley, B.Wright, and Spencer Hawes. Then still-all-star-Garnett said goodbye and headed to Boston.
4) Nene, Gortat, Ariza, Martell Webster, Vessley, and Chris Singleton. Terrible contracts and under-achieving draft picks that are not at all fitting together in Washington.
Time for ultimate test in MIAMI, GO RAPS!!! Shut down Allen, Bosh, Battier, and Beasely. Do not let them get open 3s.
DeRozan has relegated to not taking 3s and Im fine with that just drive and kick to Lowry or Ross. That way the other gets points and he raises his assist numbers pretty genius I'd say. Hes operating in his comfort zone and its incredible for himself and the team.
Ross went Steph Curry in that 3rd quarter
Kyle Lowry's video bombs are weaakkkkkk.
T-Ross = Wow.
And Patrick Patterson, what can i say? what a find by MU. And PP is still pretty young too. He's in the Ed Davis draft. If Davis was off the board that year, i really believe PP would've been the Raps pick at 13th.

Patrick Patterson has been on Ujiri's radar since he was ast to Colangelo. He even wanted him in Denver but trade talks fell through.
lol it's funny that most of y'all were calling 2 Pat a scrub when we first got him.
