    We're committed.

    Still, Casey praised Ross for his ''superb defense'' in the first quarter Sunday, and said the youngster doesn't need to worry about losing his spot in the starting five.

    ''This season is about development,'' Casey said. ''To put Terrence out to pasture would be counterproductive to what we're trying to do this year. He's got to learn. The only thing that will help him next year is to go through this.''

    The biggest key is a strong game from Amir.

    2 Wins
    AJ +12/+11
    TR -8/+3
    JV -5/0
    KL -2/+14
    DD +7/0

    2 Losses
    AJ -12/-15
    TR -1/-15
    JV -17/0
    KL -12/+3
    DD -10/+1

    Sucks he's been hobbled by his ankle issues, because when he's on, he's the most underrated excellent player in the league.

    I thought Casey was killing Ross' confidence though

    Well last year, Casey seemed more worried about killing Anderson's confidence....

    8. Somebody show DeMar a picture of JV and explain that the big fellow is also a Raptor, and worthy of a pass when within 15 feet of the basket with no defensive player within 20.
    While it is funny, I do find it interesting how none of the blame for JVs lack of touches is falling on our Floor General, and consensus Leader. Though I guess it wouldn't play into the whole "Demar is Brutal" narrative ...

    Demar doesn't pass to Lowry as well.

    I'm a DeMar fan. It's just that there was one memorable play where JV looked like he was the only guy on the floor and DD was dribbling away trying to avoid the double team. Anyone have a gif of that? That tends to stick (no pun intended)
    It's not just about Lowry...It's about the 3 spot.

    It isn't about lack of touches. All year, I (and others here) have noticed that Demar essentially refuses to pass the ball to JV, ever, regardless of how many touches JV may or may not have been getting at the time.

    That said, I've also long felt that Lowry shies away from going down low as the game goes on.

    And what I'm saying is I've seen that same thing from the ENTIRE team. All Season. Not just Demar.

    If Casey didn't want the ball in Demars hands it'd be pretty easy to get it out of them.

    Sure. I mean, Lowry finishes 23% of the team's plays, and passes the ball 62 times per game. While DD finishes 32% of the team's plays, and passes the ball 23 times per game. And the entire offense is built around DD getting first touch on pretty much every play. But I agree, Lowry should get to run more PnR with Jonas instead of passing off to DD and watching him go iso.

    With Demar, though, it goes to a comical level. I've actually wondered if Casey has explicitly told him not to pass JV the ball.

    See, I don't see what you're seeing. Lots of times, JV is being denied the entry or Demar is getting trapped. Ofcourse there are things both players can do to make the pass possible, but its not a matter of 'I don't like JV as an offensive option' type choice

    Yeah, but a lot of other times, JV is posting deep or moving to make a quick screen, and DD has an easy entry pass or PnR setup, but waves JV away to iso.

    Haha almost every comment has a like haha. Raptors can win this. We have the momentum. Lets get our bigs going, and attack the basket. Defend the perimeter, and shut down JJ, Pierce, and Deron Williams.


    LETS GO RAPTORS
