    Default Game #12: Toronto Raptors 113 - Denver Nuggets 111












    Starting Lineups:

    Raptors

    PG - Kyle Lowry
    SG - DeMar DeRozan
    SF - DeMarre Carroll
    PF - Pascal Siakam
    C - Jonas Valanciunas

    Nuggets

    PG - Emmanuel Mudiay
    SG - Jameer Nelson
    SF - Danillo Gallinari
    PF - Kenneth Faried
    C - Jusuf Nurkic



    Key Matchup:





    The past few days have been tough for the Toronto Raptors. Unfortunately it won't get much easier, with the Denver Nuggets waiting for them on their home court. These Nuggets are young, energetic, and have elevation on their side; expect them to try and deplete the stamina of the Raptors by playing FAST. Like facing the Golden State Warriors, the Raptors should attempt to slow the game down and limit Denver's offense in transition. DeMar DeRozan has a clear mismatch against Jameer Nelson and should try to bully his way into the paint, since missed jump shots can lead to long rebounds and fastbreak opportunities. Danillo Gallinari and his height can cause problems on defense for the Raptors. Patrick Patterson and his mobility might help in this situation, regardless of whether his jump shot decides to appear or not. The Raptors look to end their week on a high note at high altitude!

    Time to start another win streak. This is a team we should beat if we are disciplined offensively and gang rebound on the defensive end.

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    Denver is second in the league in boards/gm and Faried has been playing great (he grabbed 15 last game, and 14 the game before). Hopefully JV plays more than 18 minutes tonight. We're gonna need him.

    Considering he'll go up against Nurkic, there really is no reason not to give him more minutes.

    The worst part about this is that we know it's coming. On one hand, I get it. They're essentially team employees. But the broadcasts have become unbearable, given the amount of whining and excuse-making they do.
