    Did I miss a 10-game winning streak or something?

    The team is NOT winning. Just because they recently won a few games doesn't mean the team is a success or that it will enjoy future success this season. If you think that because they recently beat Boston without Rondo that they've got a shot at the playoffs, you're delusional.

    The team is starting Reggie freaking Evans to compensate for Bargnani's inability to rebound the ball, and therefor basically playing 4v5 on one side of the ball. Bargnani's inability to play help defense means they're playing 4v5 on the other side. The team isn't going to win consistently until every player on the floor contributes positively in multiple categories and minimizes the weaknesses of the unit rather than simply compensating for them with players equally flawed in other areas.

    Fact is, the only specialists you find in the starting lineup of playoff teams are wing defenders that can hit the 3 and not turn the ball over, or big men that rebound, block shots and generally protect the paint. There's a very good reason for that.
    I do not disagree with anything there.

    It will be interesting to see what happens on Friday vs. Celts again.

    You must be new to Raptor fans. A three game win streak means a Championship run, just as a three game losing streak means they need to dismantle the team.

    After posting a thread about rebounding i have a question to ask my fellow fansss?


    Whats more important Bargnani averaging a 24 and 10 seaon (like the previous franchise player) no play off or

    averaging 25 and 5 and make them
    I'm not sure I get it. This sounds more like "stats or stats". If the Raptors want to contend one thing they need is to box guys out and not allow offensive boards. Bargnani will never be big on the offensive glass because his game and the play book keep him outside the paint a lot on offense and as such he doesn't get the opportunities on that side of the court like Reggie or Amir have been getting. However, there is no excuse for his lack of defensive rebounding. I understand why he's not getting boards, it's occasionally a lack of effort but mostly a lack of "presence of mind" but regardless, he needs to do better there. Anyone who suggests he should be getting a double double probably doesn't totally understand his game and the limitations his offensive style puts on that section of the box score. I think it's reasonable to expect the occasional offensive board and virtually anything in his "territory" on defense. What's that all add up to? I think around 7 a game but that's just an estimate. The number isn't important. He just needs to make sure that the other team doesn't grab the ball while he's around them.

    it seems to me a little bit too "mathematic"
