Quick Reaction

Quick Reaction: Raptors 104, Pacers 107

The Pacers are not a good basketball team. They won anyways. Discuss.

A little more active in the paint tonight, still a bit of a ballstopper when the offense is struggling. Needs to pass quicker.

O. Anunoby27 MIN, 8 PTS, 1 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 3-5 FG, 0-2 3FG, 2-2 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, -20 +/-

Looked in charge on defense again and had some strong takes around the rim. It was awesome to see him thrive with bigger minutes tonight.

J. Valanciunas14 MIN, 6 PTS, 5 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 2-4 FG, 0-0 3FG, 2-2 FT, 0 BLK, 3 TO, -20 +/-

Brutal on defense (as per usual?) but still finished off some nice passes in the paint. His 14 minutes are all you really need to know about whether or not he was a factor in this game.

D. DeRozan39 MIN, 13 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 3 STL, 6-16 FG, 0-3 3FG, 1-2 FT, 0 BLK, 4 TO, -6 +/-

One of his worst games as a Raptor in a very long time. Was brutally fouled twice late in the ballgame and showed some rare visible signs of frustration.Three ball wasn’t even close tonight.

K. Lowry40 MIN, 24 PTS, 10 REB, 8 AST, 3 STL, 6-12 FG, 5-9 3FG, 7-7 FT, 0 BLK, 3 TO, -5 +/-

great game from KLOE, took some charges, drained some threes and was one of the few raptors actively looking for his shot.

F. VanVleet28 MIN, 16 PTS, 5 REB, 4 AST, 3 STL, 6-10 FG, 2-5 3FG, 2-3 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, 18 +/-

Wow! Career high in points, helped the Raptors make this a game when they were down 11 and looks more than ready to fill in for Wright’s absence.

N. Powell27 MIN, 16 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 7-14 FG, 1-5 3FG, 1-3 FT, 1 BLK, 3 TO, 16 +/-

Can this guy make a layup? Please? Still so excellent off the bounce, but continues to be insanely frustrating at the rim. Lost Lance on a three that proved to be the dagger late.

P. Siakam22 MIN, 5 PTS, 6 REB, 0 AST, 2 STL, 2-6 FG, 1-4 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 BLK, 2 TO, -1 +/-

Ate up a ton of minutes tonight but couldn’t find his shot and took too many threes for not making any of them (okay 1)

J. Poeltl12 MIN, 6 PTS, 2 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 3-4 FG, 0-0 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 BLK, 0 TO, 16 +/-

Should have played WAY more than the 12 minutes Casey gave him. They need to figure out what the hell they’re doing with their three young big-man rotation. Fast.

Dwane Casey

I know people are hurt, I get it, but at what point do you find a rotation and STICK to it?
