    Default Preseason Game #2: Toronto Raptors 106 - Sacramento Kings 113



    sacramento fans also say they're the best in the league. we'll see how they stack up against the vancouver crowd which was surprisingly full and crazy loud.

    even though we wont the first matchup, sacramento statistically outplayed us in some key areas:

    Preseason game 1 FG% 3PT FG% Rebounds Free Throws
    Raptors 44.0% (33/75) 33.3% 30 35
    Kings 46.9% (30/64) 38.5% 45 40

    If the kings weren't so bad at FT's (29/40 makes) they might have won the game. We basically won by volume shooting.

    Things I want to see:
    - Some brazilian play.
    - Lowry and Amir awake.
    - Terrence hopefully resting.
    - Lou Williams not being kind of shitty for 3/4 of the game.
    - James Johnson not trying to do some dumb shit again.

    I probably won't be able to see this one sadly. A little too late, and I'm not a fan of searching from stream links that freeze every 2 seconds.

    Hope Bruno gets some burn.

    I thought he played well the other night.

    I think it will be a good game to get a look at some more of the bubble guys. Ross should sit this one out bumping James Johnson to the starting group, look for Hamilton and Bruno to get a little more burn.

    Here's a cultural experiment: try Googling images for 'Canadian'. Replace Canadian with 'Brazilian'.

    Preseason basketball is so much different then other sports. Bruno should have as many or more minutes then derozan, why play these guys so much and risk injury? See what you've got in the end of the bench crew

    The coaches have been seeing what they have in these guys all summer. Preseason for a competitive, playoff team is about:

    1. getting the regular rotation established and prepared for the regular season, both defensively and offensively
    2. evaluating the bubble guys, a la Steimsma, Cherry, Hamilton to make decisions
    3. lastly and least of all, bringing along the long term project guys that are not yet ready for anything but garbage time

    Maybe Bruno and Bebe get some minutes during the preseason, but maybe they don't. So what? They're getting much more development work in during the many days of practice during the preseason. Would I like to see them? Yup, but this preseason isn't about them. Not yet. It's about preparing the team, and a rather significant part of that is the starters, to be ready to take the next step. Geeez, some need to calm down on the Bruno PT demands. It's about team, not satisfying fans' curiosity about Bruno. If he's everything we're hearing he is, it will come in good time, when it benefits the team.

    I feel like because we know how bad James Johnson's decision making can be people are going to be wary of him for a while, myself included.

    He plays well when he doesn't force offense.

    Bebe is out with a groin strain tonight as well, should see lots of Tyler and the Greg tonight.

    Looking forward to seeing James Johnson get the start tonight, good match-up with Gay.
