    Unfortunately this board is also filled with a lot of blind NBA fans. Do you really can't see that this organization is going nowhere and actually JV is the only sure case srious player? (he'll show that not sooner than his 3rd season though). Raptors do not do any moves for the future. They adding only scorers with low IQ. Look at winning teams and learn something. Christ, I don't even care if JV will be succesful in Raptors, he will find his ways as he has all he needs in him, but Raptors are going nowhere and it's funny how many fans here (and even more in other boards) are delusional.

    I can tell you one thing. Adding such player as Alexey Shved would probably be more serious try to build a serious core for the future than adding Rudy Gay.

    Man these reactions piss me off. Raps played so well tonight, lost to the better team who turned up the defensive intensity in the 3rd. Our passing slowed to a halt when they congested the passing lanes; this was a Heat victory, not a Raptor loss.

    Jesus Christ the negativity on this board is unreal. Did you guys actually prefer our roster pre-trade, or are you just angry all the time? (EDIT: Based on the post counts, I'd actually just assume you're a bunch of trolls.)

    We're not a good team yet, but we lost to the best team in the conference. We've got a new man that shows signs of potentially being our centrepiece. What more can you ask for at this point in the season?

    Great points, DoNDaDDa......

    peoples opinions of this team changes faster then delonte wests moods... is raptor nation bi-polar? seasons are full of ups & downs for every team...some people just need to chill with the knee jerk reactions to games...

    it was a tough loss, raps came out flat in the second half & good teams see that & go for the kill.. we need better movement on offence.. obviously we need better production from Lowry/JL3, & Anderson needs to take a back seat for a bit, & we need a legit post threat.. we seen today how a defence can sufficate the passing/driving lanes when theres no offence comming from the post.

    i think they fought back nicely in the first half considering the slow start..but like DC said this is a process & i dont think thats changed since rudy got here...if anything the process has kinda been reset a bit since we need to adapt the game plans & sets a bit with rudy here

    bottom line is this team is better now then it was tuesday.. we just need to ajust our rotations & set plays a bit & ratchet up the energy level closer to the way it was against the Clippers
    .... Go f*ck yourself, DoNDaDDa.

    Also this is a win win situation right now. Bargnani comes off the bench the next few games and we let him go off against the opposing teams second unit. This will not only help our bench scoring but it will also increase his trade value. Then we pack him with AA or Fields and trade for a PF and back Pg
    With Gay allowing the team to go small sometimes, I don't mind a front court of Amir, AB, JV and Gray. AB and Amir are actually okay playing together. Gay, DD and Bargnani would create all sorts of match-up problems for most teams.

    1. Miami's strength is the ability to disrupt passing lanes, pressure on the ball, blitz the pick and roll. The way to beat them is -- (a) beat them up down low on the block with a legitimate post scorer, or (b) hope they come in as tired/cocky team willing to half ass their way to a win. Unfortunately, the Heat likes to show up to games against former teams & they like the challenge of cockblocking a team that is being hyped.

    2. I like the wing pairing of Demar and Rudy. Unfortunately, this new style of play is kind of like resetting the button in terms of offensive plays, timing and communication. They look lost on offense and I expected it. The way the Raptors played before the trade, they relied on continuity that is generated from the high post horns action. It would take a while for someone to get acclimated to set plays especially when he is a centrepiece of the offense.

    3. I think Lowry is good, but damn, I wish he was 2 inches taller. He's so short and he plays grounded too. It's kind of easy to trap him when he gets inside. I can see that he is trying to adjust his game and mold it into a facilitator. It's an honest attempt at it.

    4. Amir disappointed tonight. Our bench was no where to be found.

    5. We are one more post player and a couple rotation players away from being a legitimate playoff team, in my opinion. I'm hoping for someone like David West.

    6. I can pretty much see this season as over but I will be excited to watch the rest of the season. Boston, since Rondo's injury, has not lost a game yet (although I'm not 100% sure on that). People like to write them off but you can't handle the truth. At the end of the day, they have 2 sure fire hall of famers who will do whatever it takes to have one last shot. If a team outside of the current top 8 is to make it, I expect the Hawks to fall out, not the Celtics.

    No i think Bargnani should never be on the floor if both DeRozan and Gay are on. Not enough touches and we need him to lead the bench in scoring. Off the bench is a perfect role for him right now

    Man, dissapointing loss and all, but Gay and Demar are pretty fun to watch together. I was skeptical as how they would play together, but they seem to be bringing the best out of eachother. I love watching Demar get to the line so much.

    I couldn't watch the game because I'm travelling today. But I can look at the play-by-play.

    4:09 86-83 Rudy Gay enters the game for Alan Anderson

    At 4:09 our brand new 'closer', a great offensive player who can also play legit defense on the big 3s in the league, comes in. The rest of the way, we score 2 points and give up 14.

    Just sayin'

    thats not exactly true..& rudy played heavy minutes & was visabley tired towards the end...the game swung right out of halftime & was made worse by the fact AA & JL3 provided next to nothing off the bench... Lowry at times looks like he runs his own playbook..
    with NO true post presence to speak of miami clearly figured they could cheat off the bigs & pressure the passing lanes & take away the driving lanes...& it clearly worked as we turned the ball over way too much

    Against most teams, I completely agree. Not against the Heat though. I think you would need the three of them during crunch time. When the Heat turned up the intensity, they were able to stifle Gay and DD long enough to go on a run. That wouldn't be so easy with AB in their during those crucial times. Against most other teams, I agree. You can separate AB from the other scorers.

    God dammit amir. a game against a soft player like bosh and a team with no good big men should have been what he needed to get something positive going. what happened? I just got up and just saw the box score. good game by demar though. and val only got 5 minutes?

    disagree. if we stop caring about How many shots bargs gets then touches don't matter. he should be a fixture on the 3 line and get about 5 shots a game from there. I bet he becomes a much more efficient player.
