    Default GT: Sixers @ Raptors 11.10.2012

    The Toronto Raptors will be without injured point guard Kyle Lowry and forward Landry Fields, but the Raptors will get swingman Linas Kleiza (personal) back against the 76ers.

    Lowry left Tuesday's loss to Oklahoma City with a sprained right ankle and also missed Wednesday's game in Dallas. Fields has a tender right wrist and saw a specialist this week. He's to have a second opinion next week.

    Coach Casey mentioned there would be changes in the lineup. With guys being injured that is the case anyway, but what further changes with players available do you expect for tonight? Will Casey bench JV and start Amir or Gray at center, will we see Kleiza start at the 3 or will it be Andersen? Would Casey ever dare to start JV and Amir/Ed and let Bargnani come off the bench, even if it was for one game only?

    Please discuss. Should be interesting to see how coach will use our guys tonight...

    I would love to see this years' Ed Davis starting with Valanciunas and playing 30+ minutes, he could provide some nice numbers but I don't think it's gonna happen with healthy Bargnani in the team.

    I expect to see LK see a lot of minutes since Philly likes to play small ball a lot.

    I don't know about Davis. Amir and Davis are very similar, but so far this year I've seen Amir really come in to his own. He isn't spectacular at anything (hence he's a bench player), but he's been very consistent at all the things that he does and seems to be confident about his game. Davis seems to lack exactly that confidence, he seems to be still looking for his style and rhythm. Amir on the other hand, with the few touches he gets seems to know exactly what he wants to do. Shoot it, attack the rim, pass it... it's pretty automatic. That I don't see from Davis.

    On defense both are basically identical, with Davis probably being slightly more foul prone.

    Both are too small to play C, but can play that position with small linups for short stretches.

    I would love to see that lineup:
    JV, Amir, Anderson/Kleiza, DeRozan, Kyle (Calderon for the moment).

    With Anderson starting first 6 minutes of each half for setting a defensive tone and play LK the rest of the game...
    Would also try something similar with Amir/Bargnani...

    Our starting unit has been very impressive tonight! Love the energy, and Anderson giving some quiet contributions.

    JL3 ain't creating anything, total chaos on O. What happened to this guy? It's like he doesn't belong in the NBA since the regular season started...

    That seems like the case for more than one raptor.

    Seriously failing. What is wrong with this team??? Careless passes, no flow, missed open looks... And we went from respectable defense to non-existent.

    It's like they put a lid on the rim. And Philly's shooting into a pool.
