My guess is DD makes it. Cousins, Parsons, Drummond and either of Lillard or Rose getting cut.
Rose ongoing knee problems could work in Demar's favor. Drummond did a lot tonight towards making the cut.
watching DD play like that tonight makes me proud of him, he wants this bad and i think he deserves a ton of credit. no chance of him not making this team. id rather be wrong and support our players then be write and expect failure. lets stop being politically correct and all start being arrogantly confident. #raptors2015champs
DD was awesome. Please play like that for us Demar. He'd better make the cut after that
Waiters is a lot better than you think, to go as far as saying he sucks is ignorant. (not being rude, it is just an ignorant, by definition, thing to say)
Demar ends the game with 13 points on 6/9 shooting, 1/1 from 3, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 1 turnover.
Led the team in points and assists but also played a ton more minutes than everyone else except for Lillard.

I couldn't watch the game but these highlights are nice.
You come at the King, you best not miss.
that oop from derozan to drummond was a monster
That eurostep, that shake.
Myself (March 2014):
The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

You were one of the leading scorers in Vegas and may have been one of the leading scorers tonight, what’s been working for you?
Honestly, I’m a scorer in this league and that’s my game, but I try to go out and do both - you know, go out there and rebound, get assists and just do everything else other than score.
What do you see from Anthony Davis playing with him every day? What have you realized from just seeing him a couple times a year?
I mean, he’s a hell of a player. He’s creative, he can isolate, knock down the 15-footer and he definitely got a little more strength to him. He’s a lot stronger, and he’s going to be a problem.
Talk a little bit about that stutter-step hesitation, its reminiscent about Kobe and Jordan, how much have they influenced your game?
I grew up watching Jordan, and I grew up watching Kobe. I always watch film from them and take moves from them, especially the post game. At my position a lot of two guards don’t post up, and I try to be one of those guards. I don’t do it as much as they do, but I try to be one of those guards and just pull out a couple of moves.
Did you talk to guys who have done the USA thing before about how they preserve themselves and how to stay fresh when the season comes around?
Yeah, I know a lot of guys that did it. You just got to take care of yourself like you do during the season. You’ve got to eat right and get rest, especially when you get to countries where the time changes, get iced and a little bit of everything.
Good DD. Post up more.

Over the last 35 games of this past season, Waiters boasted better per36 numbers than DD on better efficiency and more assists at the same usage...
I will agree ahead of time that only using his last 35 games is not as good as a full season, but considering he is only in his second season, and that Cleveland is a mess, that stretch of games is very impressive and is an ok set to look at to project the kid's ability to play and contribute to a team.
Again, saying he hasn't done anything is just ignorant.
