    Default Brooklyn 3sss. Coming down

    They lost battle on boards in exchange of plenty clean 3pt looks.

    Raptors need to watch raining threes from nets in game 3.

    BTW - am watching former Raptors on Dallas vs Spurs

    That's pretty meaningless, IMHO at least. That's like saying if the Nets hit their threes last game, we would've been done too, lol.

    Ross does need to get his shit straight, it's the jitters that's getting to him, but, at the end of the day, we're playing shitty, shitty defense, and that's that. We're not taking care of the ball.

    Defense wins championships.

    Actually the team that puts the ball in the basket more wins.

    From your perspective everything would be meaningless lol. What i said is true, what did you want me to say? Also we held them to 44% from the field and smashed them on the defensive glass. The defense wasn't that bad, we just turned it over like a hot potato.

    Defense does win championships, but when you get nothing from your offense, it can certainly make things tough. Bulls aren't out of it yet. I think they'll be just fine and make a series out of it.

    Well, that's one way to put it. Didn't mean to be disrespectful in that sense.

    I guess you're right in that aspect, our defense wasn't terrible, but definitely not as good as we have been during the season.

    And agreed, turned it over way too often.

    Fair enough in reference to the bulls. Though, we're quite a bit better than them at getting the ball into the hoop, or so the eye-test leads me to believe.

    Will admit when I'm incorrect!

    The defense was pretty good I thought, particularly in the first half. I really like Amir/Patterson playing together which didn't happen at all in G1. Very solid defensively. in the third they started getting everything they wanted (going at derozan every single trip down) and scored at will, but overall it was a pretty good showing I thought.

    Both teams have lots of room for improvement.

    i think they're done. wall and beal are the best backcourt in the east. bulls have dj augustin as their offensive threat and thats pretty much it.

    yep. i would trade both lowry and DD for beal and wall + whatever else to even out the deal in terms of $ in a heartbeat.

    Technically, incorrect. I could have 30 3 pointers for 90 points, and you have 40 2 pointers for 80. I win!! Maybe you meant who ever has the most points at the end of the game will win? (Without protest of course...)

    Each time Raptors got close ... Nets player drops a open look three.

    Offensively we could've given Jonas more touches near the end.... But what heck do I know.
