Andrew and Zarar maneuver their way through a terrible week and ponder where it’s all gone wrong, and more importantly, how to rescue a season of promise that is falling apart faster than a Dwane Casey drawn play.
The King of the Morning Coffee joins the pod as we keep it light after a light week, and muse on Matt Devlin, Facebook, and the upcoming schedule which features the East’s elite, bottom, and in between teams.
The 2-1 week serves as the backdrop for Will and Andrew returning to the pod and talking how the Raptors fare in the wide open East. The only thing longer than the topic list is the list of complaints lodged against Terrence Ross.
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.
