Oh, and BTW, here's hoping Milwaukee blows up their team in the summer and decides to trade Ersan...
29 pts (12-21 fgs, 0-3 3pt, 5-5 fts), 11 rbs (3 o, 8 d), 1 ast, 2 st, 1 blk, 1 to and 2 pf...his 29 pts were extremely quiet too. Didn't need the ball in his hands a lot, just catches and shoots/makes his move. Plays pretty smart D too.
I didn't realize that showcasing a player past the trade deadline is any team's priority, especially when they're trying to sneak in the playoffs. They can kiss that goodbye now. Might as well give Bargs back his 42 mins and 20 shots while the rooks rot at the end of the bench. Heck, let's just extend BC too while we're at it.
And i really want to hate on AA but i can't. AA was chucking/forcing shots left and right. He's made some but also missed a lot of crucial ones. But i guess AA's chucking ways is ok for the coach.
The NBA needs to invest in new officiating, both teams got awful calls and it has gotten to a point that is completely unacceptable for professional basketball. Call me crazy, but the refs get worse every year.

Alan Anderson is the guy who had a quasi-good game. 21 pts on 20 shots, missing 12, and missing 7 of 8 3pt attempts. Had only 1 rebound and 1 assist. Guy makes big plays because he won't let anyone else. I want him benched so badly it's not even funny.
I agree though that it would have made sense to go back to a 2-big lineup with Bargs and JV...then Fields, Demar and Lowry, just like the start of the game, when it worked so well...and dare I say perhaps it would've caught Milwaukee off guard after having stayed away from it for so long.
I forgot to add, Casey called 2 timeouts the last 2 mins of the game in the fourth to set up a play. The Raptors ended up turning the ball over on both occassions.
I understand Demar had an ugly game, but they needed him on the floor. He didn't score well, but he did try to make the right play, including 9 assists with only 2 turnovers. He managed to attract a lot of attention and not get totally taken out of the game. Keep in mind they were using Mbah a Moute on him and trying to force him to Sanders...that is one of the most imposing defensive duos possible. Again, I'd rather he's out there trying to do his thing as long as he's getting others involved. He and Fields both do that. AA does not.
I though landry fields had a good game, too bad he isn't a couple inches taller.....
Some guys had shitty games, but the effort was obviously there, even in Bargnani tonight. Milwaukee's talent separated themselves from Toronto, Rudy Gay might have made a big difference in this game had he played.
Playoff hopes might have went from 40%, or whatever percentage, to 0.00000001%, but this team played hard and battled.
Really, really, really impressed with Fields this evening. Amir had a solid game as well, and Lowry with the triple-double. It's games like these where you have to ask "What do we have to do?!"
Defense still needs some SERIOUS tightening up. Casey, get a hold of your players sir.
