That was a killer game against the Suns. Like tennis, this is a game of inches. Had Hedo nailed that shot at the buzzer, the Raptors would have been 2-0 on this four game Western swing, 6-4 on the season, and heading into Denver on a three game winning streak. You can hardly blame this… Read more »
Safe to say we were pathetic at this last year. I remember doing game recaps and checking out box scores to find that Jamario Moon and Anthony Parker were being outscored by 60-90% on any given night, they ended up finishing 26th and 22nd in starter scoring for their respective positions. They were being torched… Read more »
Ladies and gentlemen, the summer of doin’ work is officially over. BryCo, probably for the last time before the season starts, picked up the phone and turned nothing into something more then nothing…more or less. Amir Johnson (and some dude named Sonny Weems), of Detroit-Dumars fame, are the latest Raptors. The causalities: Roko “I hate… Read more »
Don’t call me Joey 2.0 Pardon the lame title, but I couldn’t help myself. Reading through Blake’s latest and greatest, he hit the nail on the head: we don’t need DeRozan to be a superstar this coming season. Don’t get me wrong, that would be nice if he came through like VC did in his… Read more »
This interview is a week or so old, but Raúl Ruscitti did us a great favour in translating this interview… In an interview with a basketball radio show in Argentina, Carlos Delfino talked about the possibility of returning to the NBA, his right shoulder injury that limited his participation last season, and his decision of… Read more »
Toronto Sun Having already addressed the Raptors deficiency in toughness with the acquisition of Reggie Evans via a trade, Colangelo addressed his club’s other glaring weakness getting a guy who can create his own shot and has no qualms about going through people to get to the rim. Raptors head coach Jay Triano revealed the… Read more »
Toronto Sun The 19-year-old forward from the USC Trojans, a projected top-10 pick, is one of several top prospects that have opted to go it alone during pre-draft auditions. "I felt like coaches get the chance to see everything I’ve improved on without paying attention to other players, their whole focus is on me," DeRozan… Read more »
Toronto Star With Shawn Marion, Anthony Parker and Joey Graham as unrestricted free agents, and Carlos Delfino in the mix as a restricted free agent the Raptors have spoken about bringing back, that leaves a dearth of shooting guards and small forwards. It would seem obvious the No.9 pick would have to play one of… Read more »
I hope that there is a coach here that can explain this:
Mid way through the first quarter and well into the second when you’re down double digits and you bring in Vaz and company and start the 3 guard set the team passed the ball a million times and guess what happened? Well you seen the game I don’t have to explain.
Then Casey starts the second half with his iso Lou game , now remember during the run in the first half Lou had about 4 assists, he was playing a hell of a game.
You could see as soon as Vaz came in (second half) what Casey’s plan was, give the ball to Lou (you know that little bounce pass is the sign..lol..) and then everybody put their finger up their respective rears because the play is the iso Casey extravaganza AND believe me I don’t blame Lou for this!
This all Casey’s master plan that busted right on his face in about 5 minutes, the team went from 58-53 deficit to a 71-56 one. Lou bricked four and a turn over, AGAIN I don’t blame Lou entirely for this, the guys were playing so well for a quarter and a half, Lou was driving and give it up and the other guys were making the shots they really looked like a good unit.
Then Casey changes the PROGRAM! I just don’t get this guys !
Oh well, something got to change here this is a little more then a slump. Hey Casey maybe that passing thing is ok, it may work! Actually it worked for the end of the first and the full second. I bet there were more passes on that second quarter than the whole game.
