    And really, it is a weird choice. If Casey is worried about fouls and wants him for the end, he should've kept him benched longer. If he wants to keep trying to ride his hot streak, I don't understand why you don't originally at least keep him in for another sequence or two to see if he stays hot.

    Now he's cold and can still easily get into foul trouble.
    you can start a quarter with 2 fouls left, you cant start a quarter with 1 left. Is he cold? or is he taking long contested shots? probably because he hit a couple in a row before.

    LOL, JV's reactions to fouls are as predictable as his pump fakes. Classic JV.

    Atlanta has really missed a lot of easy shots tonight.

    It's still kinda weird. If you're super worried about fouls and having DeMar to close it out, you should have him on the bench longer, so you know he can finish the game. If you want to ride the hot hand, why don't you at least leave him in for another sequence or two (Raps would've been going on O after his 4th foul)? And now he seems to be cold and could still be in foul trouble early in the 4th.

    Obviously this doesn't matter now, we're up 21 and things are going fine. I still just don't get Casey's coaching sometimes....
    because if he got his 5th in the 3rd, you couldn't put him back in until 6 mins or so left in the 4th... in this situation he gets to start the 4th and no harm was done since we increased the lead so clearly it was the right move... if we were down by 5 when he got his 4th foul then u might have a case but as it stands if casey did what u wanted and demar got his 5th foul in the 3rd, we'd all be calling for his head

    Why is it so hard for Jack to understand why the greatest historical rivalry in sports is getting a prime time slot? Yeah Boston sucks but it's Celtics vs Lakers, it's pretty self explanatory from a scheduling point of view.

    If only DeMar would trade his long 2's for 3's he'd be James Harden 2.0

    His effort on D can't be questioned usually, it's just his skill. I don't think he's as bad defensively as most people, if you hide him on a bad player then he's fine.

    Nice strip by Novak. Good to see him get some burn and play better defence. It's tough sitting on the pine.

    The point is that he could've easily kept him in and not been a big risk to pick up that foul. The Raptors were going on O after DeMar's 4th...they could've at least tried to get one more score out of him before taking him out.

    Obviously it doesn't matter now. The Raps are up big and it all worked out. I still just don't like Casey's coaching sometimes. He plays it safe a lot, including his love of the "mistake-free" but mostly impactless player like Hayes. Again, the Raps would've been going on O, and DeMar's matchup was Kyle Korver. It's a good opportunity to test DeMar as well, who's a young player with a big load on his shoulders, and who you may need in such tough situations later on in the season/playoffs.

    The only real reason it's acceptable to me is that we were up 11. If it was a close game, I could easily see such a decision being costly.

    *And there he played 8+ minutes without a foul. I don't think you need to play it as safe with wings. Bigs are the ones you really need to worry about.
