The ‘ain’t no reason to sleep on this team’ edition. Banks – he was seen working on his tan behind the bench. Bargnani – if I told you he had 1 rebound in 33 minutes, would you be surprised? The guy rebounds as well as a bag of water thrown at a brick wall. Belinelli… Read more »
The ‘Chuck Swirsky? Who’s next? The usher from section 101?’ edition. Banks – you ever watch Finding Nemo? You know that school of fish that swam behind the stars of the film? Well, if you used the Raptors as a real-life version of that school of fish, Banks would be the seaweed in the distance…. Read more »
The ‘yeah, well, evidently they are still better than us’ edition. Banks – more chance of this game taking place at the Alamo Dome than Banks seeing the floor. Bargnani – saw a little bit of all of his game tonight. Indifference, a rare block on a meaningful shot, his usual silky touch. His D… Read more »
The ‘shouldn’t we be beating teams like these’ edition. Banks – as badly as we played, he is in midseason form: DNP-CD. Bargnani – played well, not great. His long range game was off, but he looked like he was trying to concentrate on his spot on the floor a bit too much. But, better… Read more »
The turkey time edition Banks – his worst game of the preseason, but he only saw the floor for 2 minutes. Still, that was enough to provide flashbacks (premonitions?). 3 fouls, 1 assist and providing a face to acid reflux. Bargnani – speaking of worst games of the preseason, Andrea was off tonight. His already… Read more »
The well, at least the Yankees won edition Banks – considering what he had given us previously, he is already off to his best season in a Raptor uniform. Hustle, took a hard foul, talking on the floor. Has he played well enough to be the 10th man in the rotation? Bargnani – continued to… Read more »
The we’ll get ‘em tomorrow edition… Banks – a few nice passes (including a nice alley-oop), hit a straightaway three, found DeRozan for a timely three, but committed some poor fouls. This isn’t saying much but this was probably his best game in a Raptors uniform. Bargnani – In the absence of Bosh and Hedo,… 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.
