    The refs look perfectly sane. The Raptors were the bipolar crew last night.
    I could agree we that, but when Demar gets slapped while handling the ball, bumped on the way to the rim, and hit by 3 purple shirts at the rim, and no 'tweek'? Well, it's life of a Toronto Raptor.

    But those types of sequences happen every game. The Raptors have no one to blame for this game but themselves. Assigning blame to referees diminishes the impact of their own effort, focus, execution, and decisions - all of which were very poor from coaching on down to players. If the Raptors played to their ability, as they have of late, the game would have been an easy W-ictory. The fact the Raptors could play so poorly and still have a shot to win down the stretch had some three's fallen is mind numbing.

    Oh no, I don't disagree, but the calls/non-calls tonight were killer. I thought there were moving screens, shuffling of feet, some foul-type contact, and too much inconsistency in terms of 'don't make the call here, but make the call there.'

    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.

    Definitely agree with the bold. I thought you were implying the referees had an impact on the game - apologies for that.

    No worries, I mean, had the Raptors played up to their recent speed, the reffing would have been non-existent from the Raptors' point of view.

    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.
