    Default Dwane Casey

    In my opinion the Raps lose this game because their coach got outcoached in the 4th ONCE AGAIN. The guy has no idea what he's doing. The defence/offence substitution late in the game was huge because the Raps ended up w/ no timeout in their final possession. And it's not like his "defensive unit" did anything. They couldn't stop any Pistons in the 4th quarter!!

    Another one, Bargnani is on fire all night so why didn't they set up a play for him in the post or set up a play to get him open in one of the Raps final 2 possession? instead they let Lowry go one on one and was forced to take a TOUGH fadeaway shot. Speaking of Lowry, the guy just takes way too many bad shots late in teh game. Score was 82-77 Raps, the guy just jacked up a tough 3 with about 6-7 secs in the shot clock. It was like Charlotte all over again.

    Looking at the Raps sked: SA game is an automatic loss. They're not beating the Rockets in Houston on tuesday. They're going to get destroyed in Memphis. Phoenix is a winnable game but in my opinion they're a better team than Detroit and Charlotte so who knows? after that off to the west to face Denver, Sacramento, Utah, LAC and Portland. LOL. The way the Raps are playing right now they could really go on a long losing streak. Like 0-9 the next nine games.

    Someone's going to get fired.

    The way i see it, Amir guarded prince really well, and dominique mcguire didnt leave anything to the point guard.

    Prince could either miss, and Casey be praised as a genius,

    or hit it like the cool calm veteran he is, and Casey would be shot down.

    Either way, Casey didn't trust Lowrys ankle on defense, and shouldn't have trusted it on offense either.

    I've been highly critical of Casey this year and rightfully so IMO but tonight isn't on him it's on Lowry.

    Lowry with two questionable shots late and now giving it to the hot hand. On top of that the whole hobbling to the bench and then going in to take two shots in a row was enough to make me puke. He has made extremely poor discussions the last two games and it came across as immature and selfish to me. Still love his potential impact on our team and think he can be highly impactful for us in a positive way but he's gotta be a floor general and have a team first mentailty and that making the right plays especially late in games.

    By the way enlightenment the bolded part of your post is bang on.

    Demar had his worst game of the season and I'm looking forward to the Spurs game to see him bounce back which I fully expect him to do.

    love casy but if lebron wasn't told by stern to throw the 2011 nba finals he wouldn't be here. maybe there's a reason the timberwolves let him ago

    What would peoples reaction be if Bargnani had taken the final shot and missed? Probably that Lowry should have taken the shot 'cause....... My point is, lets not go by results folks. Yes it would have been nice to see our team win but it's important to keep our sight on the big picture. We are in the middle of a rebuilding process, a process that can test peoples patience.

    As far as this season is concerned, things will turn around. Maybe not so much that we make the play-offs but there will be positive signs. Somebody may get fired or traded but I'm confident things will look better.

    I dont necessarily trust bargnani with last shots. Stop nit picking every decision that falls on the wrong side of a 50/50. Bargs has had awesome shooting nights, but I cannot remember a single clutch bucket.

    did you watch the game? he single handedly kept them in the game in the first. He made huge buckets in the 4th. I would say that is pretty clutch wouldn't you? If you are referring to game winners that is different, but he makes clutch shots all the time.

    CT2010, "all the time." Really?
    Yes he is good for 36% at his worst. But when the game is on the line, Bargnani cracks, and its not without being fed the ball! Going back to Triano days, and Bargnani has been responsible for the lack of any late game winners.

    I remember at least 5 Anthony parker clutch game winners, or shots that lock the game for us,
    I can only think of one Bargnani three pointer against a boston team to tie it up (lost in OT)

    With the amount of disproportional usage, Id say Bargnani is unreliable, and when a basket is necessary at the end of the game, he must be avoided!

    We should bring back Mo Pete and AP just to hit clutch shots. When we're within 1 with a couple of seconds left just throw them in and bam. Game Winner

    Ooooor.... we could develop Demar to become that person!

    Kevin Durant was given that treatment during his development and now killer shots are second nature to him.

    Default where is casey's defense?

    The guy is a poor strategist, where is Triano when you need him?
    and where is casey's tough defense?

    Of the 10 losses 2 at least are on Casey.
    but I guesss you can't fire the guy. you have to wait until the end of the season.

    But I mean if you dont win 30 games with this team, Would you keep Casey really?? how???
    on what excuse? there is not enough talent to win 30 games....and so far they are on pace to win less than 30.
    So Casey's shoudl as of right now be in danger of losing his job.
    That's how I see it.

    It's possible that Casey gets fired or maybe even Colangelo. I don't see them(Raps) not continuing to build an eventual winner.

    As far as the winning shot is concerned, I think Jonas can develop into the guy who takes the winning shot.

    I agree, especially with how fired up Monroe was with Bargnani, I bet Bargnani could've goaded him into biting on a pump-fake and taking a foul. It was nice to see Bargnani fired up emotionally in this one, I just wish he would bring it like this consistently, then we'd all pile on his bandwagon... sooooo frustrating!

    we loved casey last year because we appeared competitive in most games which is all we wanted. now we want to win but he doesnt give us anything other than the still being competitve. he gets out coached at the end of every game bottom line. maybe we would have been much better last year but hes just not capable of being in charge of an offense

    Casey needs to coach to his strengths.

    Right now he is coaching to his weaknesses.
