    or maybe its because we are playing Milwaukee the very next day so he's giving his starters a rest?
    That's not a strategy Casey's used before. A close game versus a weak opponent (Detroit) would get priority over the next game versus a stronger opponent (Milwaukee). Casey was 100% tanking last night (although, probably as a result of Colangelo's "nudging").

    This is from the Raptors PR.... er, I mean Doug Smith:

    No big deal, really

    Yes, DeMar DeRozan did not play in the fourth quarter and only played 28 minutes on the night – and played pretty well when he was out there – but, please, don’t read anything into it.

    As Dwane said post-game, he just wanted to see what the other guys could give him in strange situations for them and if you can’t do that in Game 64 of a 66-game season against another going-nowhere team playing out the string, when can you do it?

    Don’t be surprised if DeMar’s at about the same minutes tonight in Milwaukee or Thursday night at home; it’s nothing personal, it’s just that time of year.

    Haha...I suppose it's hypocritical of me, because I read his blog a lot -- but Doug Smith might be more of a homer than Matt Devlin. Which is impressive, in a sort of depressing way.
