    Default Raps Have Best Defensive Lineup in the League

    According to NBA.com, apparently we have the league's best defensive lineup now with lowry, dd, gay, amir and JV. Followed by the wizards, spurs and bulls.

    And one of the worst line ups offensively. I suppose.

    Still puzzled how that Washington lineup rates so high. The top 4 were from contending teams.

    I read an article about this the other week. Apparently the Wizards are "elite" on defence, but are terrible on offence as well. Okafor and Nene, while neither is a defensive anchor, are working very well together. Throw in Trevor Ariza, and you have 3 decent defenders who are working very well together.

    Another reason why I wanted a trade of Bargs for Okafor.

    Interesting

    Is it a small sample size though?

    Too bad DC didn't use this lineup in the 42 point 4th quarter vs GSW.

    42 POINTS!

    Way too small a sample size to be relevant. And last night's game was a prime example, if you pay attention to more than a few highlights (steals) and boxscores, that Rudy's defense is lazy and ineffective for most of the game. Hell, rookie Barnes abused him like he was a pylon.

    This is something that frustrates me to no end with Casey, regardless of Bargs implications...

    For a coach who consistenly preaches D, his late game sub patterns are almost always indicative of favoring offensive players. It's like if we're behind, he wants them to be able to shoot them back into it. And if we're ahead, he's afraid the team's scoring will stall. I don't know the last time I remember him putting a closing unit out there that was supposed to stop the other team...

    Seems to me that Casey looks beaten down.

    he's losing (lost?) the lockerroom when he starts bargs over amir. seeing a teammate who busts his ass every single minute of every game lose his starting position to the prized pony has got to be enraging, especially when you consider how well liked amir is by everyone.

    if im a player i wouldn't give a shit about "but we're trying to raise Andrea's value!" either. good luck trying to resign Lowry and Gay later.

    I think you confuse the locker room with RR posters, but if you've got any inside info, I'd love to be enlightened. What I find really crazy about this comment is that it comes after a game that these two players did so well with their respective assignments, that both had the best game they've had in a long time, to the point that they were the best two players for the Raps in this game. Now, if you want to talk losing the locker room, let's talk about the black hole Rudy is on offense, while being so nonchalant on defense except for his highlight steals moments.

    Makes you wonder what happened to last seasons D. However, he's working with a team of poor defenders. Outside of Amir there isn't a good defender on the team...perhaps Lowry....so maybe Casey's mindset is to play to the teams strengths which supposedly is their ability to score.

    But one area I really want to focus on is keeping the lead. For example against Warriors we had a 7 point lead and they managed to turn it around and have a 7 point lead over us at the end.

    With Bargnani in the starting line up who here believes that we will have a better overall record than last season?

    Last season the Raptors had a record of 23-43 (.348). This year right now it is 23-38. 5 more losses in a row and they tie last year's brutal record. If they finish the year 28-54 they will have a worse record then last year. The schedule seems pretty good (lots of teams below .500) but it is the Raptors.. I am not too optimistic that they will get more than 5 wins with Bargnani as a starter in the next 21 games.

    Either OKC is going to have a very nice pick, or the Raptors will have a really good chance of getting in the top 3.
