    Ugly win last night but it was a W. In recent years that game we would have lost.
    Agreed. Even earlier this season, the team would've started pressing, and played "not to lose".

    It's funny how much confidence changes things.

    Well when you run a ton of isos for someone who doesn't excel in that area that's what you get.

    That's why this team still needs a true superstar. Casey also needs to remember that passing and ball movement is how we are successful in quarters 1-3, there's no reason to go away from that in the 4th.
    Exactly. I dread late forth quarter play calls by DC . The ball often does not move.

    I kept reading this morning about the "blown call" last night and I had no idea what they were talking about. The play should never be called a foul, they both got to the spot together, neither had possession and Derozan touched the ball first. What am I missing?

    I'm guessing they're referring to the Kyrie drive, Amir contact, "no call".

    That one makes more sense. I didn't watch the replays but live from the angle they showed I was very surprised a whistle didn't come when the layup was that off.

    Exactly. With this group, you can just see that confidence and the feeling like they expect to win. And being a "winning" team creates a reputation around the league, where suddenly we are "one of those good teams" that seem to get all of the unfair breaks from the refs, while the "loser teams" cry in their beer.

    For everyone crying foul about Raptors treatment by the refs - well we got one back there.
    And that's just the nature of the game, refs blow calls in basketball since they're so hard to make.
    Some fall our way, some don't.

    I was streaming a Cavs feed yesterday, and they were going off about a lot of calls at the end of the fourth.

    Things like this, and the Lowry-Kings call, happen to every team. Can we stop crying foul?

    These "non-calls" will continue to happen at the end of games as long as players keep looking for foul calls to bail them out

    People keep saying "ugly win" but that is how this team plays. They grind it out defensively, foul the other team a lot, and slow it down in the half court. Raps win ugly cause they play ugly.

    yep. i think it was kyrie irvings post-game interview where he was asked about the potential foul, and he just shrugged it off saying its just part of the game.

    of course the next bad call the raptors get, i'll be the first to cry foul!

    Any road win, against any team, is a good win, no matter how it was won.

    I actually liked the cavs feed. When Kyrie didn't get his foul on that soft little try and get fouled and throw a layup up, they called him on it. They said yes it was a foul but you can't just play for the refs to bail you out. You can't go soft at Amir Johnson, you have to take it hard to the rack and get that call. Good piece of non-homer analysis in cleveland

    Yep, watching the away feed is one of my favourite things to do.

    Austin Carr had been ripping those guys all season though. It's pretty hilarious.
