    I personally like the quality of basketball we are seeing. it's a young team, and I expected it to be a hard season. Can't believe some of you actually bought Bryan's take on this being a playoff team.

    I'm not bashing Casey, but I'd like to see more fire out of him with his players as well as with the refs. He just seems so accepting of everything. I caught his post game interview with media and he actually laughed about something and I was thinking that he should be more pissed right after a loss.
    What is he going to do? Throw money away with a reactionary rant. There is no point.

    Only reason some of these games are even watchable is because of Jonas. He's the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Who do u blame though? the only guy that you can blame is BC. He's the one that assembled this team. And frankly i'm not that impressed with how this team is assembled this year. Take out Lowry and this is the same team as last year and the year before. There's just not enough talent.

    BC said after last season that he's going to upgrade the SF position. Is Fields really that much of an upgrade over James Johnson?
    This is last year's team, plus Lowry. Val adds a bunch but he's not an impact player. Yet. Once again, the lack of a go-to-guy late costs them the game. I like Lowry. I can live with Derozan. But neither is a closer. Until they get that guy there will be more losses like this.

    As I've said before, this organization needs to be cleaned out top to bottom. Until that happens, nothing will change. For now, enjoy watching Val. He's the future.

    He looked impactful today, we were down by 9 late in the game

    (imo, he was key to eroding that lead, by getting key rebounds and playing some good d)

    No, no, no. Time to hold the snake oil salesman to his word. He set the expectations not me or random RR posters. Playoffs now.

    Another game where they blew a big lead. Same old problems over and over again. If they lose in Detroit something is going to give.
    Big lead?! The one in the first quarter? They overcame a ten point deficit in the 4th. You've got to play the whole game. Vegas doesn't care what kind of a run you go on at nine in the evening....it's what you walk out the door with.

    And yet, they're a worse team. What's up with that? Casey seems to have lost his edge.

    Just like in boxing or MMA, you don't want to leave the outcome in the hands of the judges...or in our case in the hands of the refs. Raps gotta go out there and take the win and not put it in the refs hands to bail them out with a call. Refs obviously aren't going to be doing us any favours.
    all the points loss from noncalls is a huge factor in these losses. imo second would be their terrible ft% on the ones that do get called, but thats only 5-10 pts at most (depending on how much the refs like the other team)

    Nope. They lost this game because of poor execution when they were up 96-93.
    NO they lost because of the referees. It was hack a DeMar all night long

    Demar, Lowry, JV all bring us towards winning.

    Bargnani and Calderon have serious deficiencies that lead to loses.

    The rest of the guys either will be with group #1, or group #2.
