    Default Seriously, Casey needs to stop letting Lowry handle the ball in the late 4th.

    He pisses me off every game. He makes the most dumbest decisions EVER game down the stretch. Serious, WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU SHOOT A DEEP 3 WHEN YOU'RE UP 4 POINTS WITH 30 SEC LEFT? He also took another stupid 3 in OT. He doesn't have great ball handling and can't run plays as well as Jose, stop keeping him as the primary ball handler down the stretch.

    Lowry is a better player when he is in attack mode. He can pass, but he's not a great play maker. When he drives the lane only good things happen. But when he has the ball for more than a few seconds up top bad things happen. He just needs to drive, as he can finish in the paint with ease, and kick it out when doubled.

    That's what works, why deviate from what he does so good. I don't get it.

    I like the 1-2 Calderon-Lowry late in the game. They're both our most clutch scorers and Calderon setting up Lowry makes it even better. But I agree Jose should be the one handling it but I'd still give Lowry the last shot

    He played most of the third, all of the 4th and OT. He was obviously tired. Those two big turnovers were fatigue.

    Score at the end of the half 60-43 Toronto

    Score when Lowry entered the game 64-55 Toronto

    "Most" of the lead still existed when Lowry entered the game.

    But this game was a dominating display of defense by Philly in the second half and some superb play by Jrue Holiday. Thats what happened to the Raps. Not Lowry, not Casey, not (insert name here). Philly came into the 2nd half ready to win the game, Toronto came out thinking the game was already over.

    Im saying that those two last huge turnovers by Lowry were due to fatigue. Basically played the whole first half except the first 5 minutes

    "Attack mode" and 42% career shooting don't mix.

    Looks like he finally learned to play Calderon down the stretch. Took him long enough...
