    “He looks good, he’s got active, active hands, he’s long, not afraid of contact, he’ll hit you first,” said Casey. “Again, we want to work with him to make sure he makes the right decisions, when to screen, when to hit people so he doesn’t get the cheap fouls.”

    - Favourite quote of the story. Seems like JV wants you out of the way.

    Has there been any reports to confirm whether or not JV is playing tonight?

    A couple tweets, and stories. Dwane Casey said he's ready to go tonight, but only projected to play 10-12 minutes.

    In the first half Monroe posted up JV three times, on two of those occasions JV blocked Monroe's shots! Nice D. Let's see if he plays some more minutes in the second half

    Jonas played well in his first game. All he needs is a little more confidence and he'll be on the right path.

    GREAT defense today, what'd he have like 3 or 4 blocks in 13 minutes?

    Yeah, every big man trying to post JV up was having serious difficulty. Jonas' length really bothered any inside looks, not to mention he worked extremely hard. JV getting more minutes over time will result to some garbage buckets, boards defensively and offensively, and continued paint presence.

    He was rolling hard but was looked off many times. But at the very least, he sucked a defender (or 2) opening up shots for teammates. It's not going to show up in the boxscores, but Jonas was a presence last night on both ends.

    I totally agree with the first part. Jonas would've at the least had 8 points if guys hadn't looked him off. You have to trust the pass.

    When was the last time we heard a Raptor say something like this? About a preseason game? You have to admire his drive

    "It was a good test, but I'm waiting for Friday," Valanciunas said afterwards. "Yeah, I want the return match," he said referring to Detroit's visit to Toronto on Friday.

    I'm sure he's reading all the Drummond praise this morning, and is feeling a little scorned

    He's getting ready to dunk the shit out of Drummond and make him his bitch.

    JV: you had your fun, now it's my turn *posterizes Drummond*
    Ad: wait...OH SHIT!*falls to the floor*

    Anyword on JV's expected minutes tonight? Hoping to see a little more of him on the court tonight.

    If similar minutes who puts up a better stat line JV or Drummond?

    I would be very surprised if Drummond has a similar game to Wednesday. I bet he was an important topic of discussion during practice/film sessions yesterday.

    Can't say I'm not bummed over JV's first game. He had a good game but it was very quiet.. 0 boards in 13 mins was a disappointment, especially since Detroit killed us in overall rebounds.

    I'm paying extra attention to the rookie bigs this year - Anthony Davis so far is killing it in preseason. Perry Jones had a good game as well the other day, as did T-Rob. Sullinger is even doing well out in Boston, and of course Drummond did well against us the other day.

    Yes it's preseason, but I'd love to see a double/double at least one time.. is that too much to ask?

    JV had 2 or 3 tips to teammates. He didin't have nice stat sheet. But those tipped boards are ones that detroit couldn't get, which means two or three less possesions. Stuff like that adds up after a while, even if he doesn't get the stats to prove it
