    I did. And I was proven wrong. But I'm still not comfortable with the way we're playing without Patterson. It's a bit alarming how bad our defense has been without him. And let's not even talk about the benches offense minus PPatt.
    But this is the NBA GLF. Players get injured and 2Pat was an important part of why the team was playing well/consistent. A disruption like that throws the rotations out of sync and thus the inter action of players/5somes. Look what is happening to the Pacers & Heat...they are both trying to incorporate new players into their play (Oden, Bynum, Turner, less Granger). And these are teams with depth and great coaching. Just have to play it out...cant get too up or down after each game. What I like about the Raps is the consistency...touch wood...no great slides.

    It's true. I do get to low off of loses but I just don't think the lose of Patterson should be hurting us THAT much defensively. It just seems like we aren't giving the right amount of effort on that end to start games and we assume we can always make a comeback. Against the Pelicans of the world (with no Davis) yes but not against OKC or even Atlanta.

    The Raptors bench has been exposed for what it is. Salmons, Hayes and Novak don't have much to offer. Fields and Nando should be playing more. With Hansbro and Grievus you might have something. Obviously Patterson has been huge.

    This also suggests another route for Raptors domination. Focus on improving your bench, and then your starters don't have to be as elite.

    That was pretty terrible but hugely important. Seriously lucky Davis didn't play. Important that Hans and Amir both played over 35 mins as well. Anything more than 17 minutes of Hayes and i'd have been annoyed.

    Salmons seems to be going from mediocre to terrible lately, I guess I wouldn't mind DeColo getting a good chunk of those minutes, at least he will move the ball and make decent decisions.

    I'm really not a Vasquez fan at all, but he put the game away with a couple of big buckets, so I have to give him credit for that.

    Pretty sure a bunch of us have been saying this for a while. Solid bench players are often not recognized for their importance.

    Feels like the Raptors D is slipping. Can't blame Patterson for that since he comes off the bench. JV didn't play and Amir was banged up but this is when the D really has to step up. Need to retain that defensive focus for the playoffs.. only way you're going to survive.

    Absolutely we need improved overall team defensive effort.
