    Default Game #49: Toronto Raptors 101 - Sacramento Kings 109

    By the way. those of you in GTA, who is enjoying yet ANOTHER snow storm today... crazy.

    Game #49: Toronto Raptors @ Sacramento Kings
    10:00PM
    TV: Sportsnet
    Radio: TSN 1050

    So, the Toronto Raptors (26-22) are currently 2-1 going to the 4th game of this road trip against the Sacramento Kings (16-32).

    Things to watch for

    The return of the Sacramento Guys:

    How much emotion will play into this game. Not much I suspect because each player has been to multiple stops. But nonetheless, there is always that feeling of going back to an old home. Gay will have too play against his former team mates as well. Raptors are 20-10 since the trade and 18-10 since the Sac guys joined us. Kings are still below .500 since the trade (11-19)



    DeMar DeRozan vs. Rudy Gay:

    Both players have gone up against each other bunch of times in practice. Rudy will most likely guard DeMar, but it'll be interesting to see who wins the battle.



    Demarcus Cousins vs. JV

    This match up is going to pose problems for JV as Cousins is a MUCH bigger guy than him. He will have to box out. The only time these guys went at it, Cousins had 20-13 and JV was held to 3-3.



    Raptors will win this game if they play defence. Sacramento can pose trouble with their offence. Their defence is not as good and Raptors will have to take advantage.

    Raptors can win this. Just need to play solid defence and force IT, Rudy, and DMC to take contested 2's.

    Isaiah Thomas running on Lowry all night could be a serious problem too.

    cousins has been making less long 2 attempts, something demar needs to get onboard with (or get a lot better at).

    I agree. Especially on a night like this. SAC's defence isn't too great, and he can put a lot of pressure on Cousins by drawing fouls on him. Maybe even get some frustration and a Technical foul call on him haha.

    I'd like the Raptors do a better job of drawing fouls... or particularly at focusing on going after a guy who takes a couple early fouls. Especially when they've got one of the best bigs at drawing fouls in Hansbrough. I know TH has slipped down the rotation, but five minutes where he comes on, draws a few fouls, and holds his own in the rebounding department is 5 minutes well spent.

    sacramento are actually slightly better at drawing fouls than we are and are almost just as good at the line (77.1 vs 77.3 for the raps)

    For a team so bad (record wise) Sacramento actually has a lot of talent.

    Bryan Colangelo of all people could be the guy that rights that ship. BC loves character guys and Sacramento needs them. He also drafts really well, and that's one thing Sacramento hasn't been very good at.

    I question this.

    I think their roster looks a lot like what BC would put together. Frankenroster of talented players.

    BC's ability to put together a roster is a bit questionable (although he did a really good job in Phoenix).. my point was more so from a character point of view. I don't think BC would ever keep a guy like Cousins on his team. And if given the chance I'm sure he would consider trading him.

    cousins has been 'matooring' (said in DC way) and has wisened up a bit for sure though.

    I don't see this game as a win. Not because we aren't the better team, but because we match up with them horribly.

    BC hung on to Bargnani for far too long, and hung his hat on Gay.

    Now, he may have traded away Gay when he found it didn't work. But I think Bargnani is evidence of BC not emphasizing character enough!

    Just as he did in Portland by locking down Aldridge and giving the team a chance, Hayes will likely save us tonight
