    I missed the first half and the start of the 3rd quarter (thanks PVR), but saw the rest of the game. The portion of the 3rd quarter I saw had JV dominating and the Raptors playing with a lot of...

    I'm impressed that so many players are net-positively impacted by playing with Ross this season, except for Patterson, which I find ironic.

    My idea from the Lineups You'd Like to See thread would...

    It made sense last night, when DeRozan, Ross or Powell were often playing the PF spot. JV was often getting double and triple teamed on the glass offensively, with no additional inside help (to help...

    When JV gets the ball in the low-post, he's usually expected to try and score. Is Bebe?

    It comes down to the roles that Casey has assigned to each player and the play calling, which combined is...

    I disagree with the bold, and I think there is ample evidence to support the claim that Casey runs a two-headed monster system, regardless of the personnel. Casey needs to surround those monsters...

    Getting the ball in the post 2-4 times a game, half of which are clear-out plays that the rest of the team take off, is hardly comparable to actually running the offense through the post.

    This is a great point. No other PG is a 3pt threat like Lowry, and Patterson is a total glue guy (and 3pt shooter), whether he's at the 4 or 5.

    I'd still like to see a Lowry-Ross-Carroll-Patterson-JV lineup. Lots of 3pt shooting, great defense, solid rebounding, position-less wing/forwards gives great flexibility especially on the defensive...

    The biggest thing DeRozan needs to do to take a step forward in the playoffs, just like Lowry to a lesser extent, is remember that if he is having an off game (ie: poor shooting and/or no help from...

    Don't forget about the newbie fan, who thinks it's perfectly acceptable to spend the entire game asking questions, akin to the 'talks during the movie' guy.

    I think a lot of the lack of recognition for Lowry comes from those who don't watch him play every game, because his impact isn't always flashy, nor does it always show up on the stat sheet. He...

    I wonder how many PPG JV would post, if consistently given as much of the offensive opportunity as DeRozan?
