"Championships are what we live for, now lets go win them."Tim Leiweke
The Raptors don't have anyone to blame other than themselves. Came out on the warm-up as if the game was going to be handed to them (someone making the point that they were basically hanging out with James Johnson), flat-footed defensively, no communication, no focus (that can be noticed with missed FT's and opportunistic plays), and quite frankly they played like the 4-19 team. No ball movement, and too many turnovers. I think after the 1st half, they had maybe 8 assists with 7 turnovers or something like that.
My point is, the calling overall in the game was terrible. Either side for Toronto/Sacramento. The reffing has an impact of it's own on the game, but players/coaches are the ones who control the outcome.
Since both teams are not world beaters, it could be that there is some confusion as to who should get the favorable calls.
Cousins and Lowry got the most last night, so stature and popularity certainly helps out.
