    The Rockets are the 2nd best team in the WC. They are the biggest threat to the Warriors IMO.

    There is no threat to the warriors in the west

    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.

    Rudy Gay would be proud; dude was ahead of his time, trying to save box-score paper all those years ago. We did it man, we did it.

    Those are elite players. This whole 6th man narrative... taken as fact now. I'm worried if we don't trade JV we'll end up in playoff series where Demar is matched up against a great defender and our offence grinds to a hault, because our guard oriented offence doesn't work against some quality opposition, and then we wish we would have developed JV a little in the post to have developed some post passers and some understanding how to feed the post and to have another option. We expect JV to just be instant offence when nothing else works. And the post passing often is terribke. And if not for JV, we don't get past Indiana, where Demar was absolutely dominated and Lowry wasn't his usual self.
    People want a nice, clean narrative to describe a team by and with KL/DD/JV the Raptors are not pace-and-space, they aren't mobile + rangey, they aren't grit + grind, people don't know what to call a team that doesn't get assists but manages a league best ORTG, a team with two dominant guards that's been developing a young post big. In spite of not knowing how to put this team in a descriptive box in a single sentence, the Raptors are winning A LOT of basketball games, more than this franchise ever has and more than most pundits predict for them each and every year.

    Casey + DeMar have been defying our expectations + league trends every year with greater and greater effectiveness, there's far too much certainty by some here about what will and won't work with JV moving forward.

    Default Game #33: Toronto Raptors 123 - Los Angeles Lakers 114

    New Years Day. 6:30 pm Pacific Time.

    Probable Starters:

    Raptors
    C - Valanciunas
    PF - Siakam
    SF - Carroll
    SG - DeRozan
    PG - Lowry

    Lakers
    C - Mozgov
    PF - Randle
    SF - Deng
    SG - Young
    PG - Russell

    Keys to winning this game is pretty simple. You stop Lou Williams and the Lakers bench, you stop the Lakers. This is also a pretty good matchup for JV. So I expect him to have a good game.

    In my opinion - They should sit Patterson for this game. There's no reason for him to play this game even if he's "healthy"

    Really? Damn, don't think I'll be around that long, unless scientists invent a viable way of implanting human consciousness into non-degrading corporeal hosts.

    I don't want to see another dog performance by our offense. Just so hard to watch as a fan.

    Hopefully we hear some good news on the Patterson front.

    I remember when the Raptors traded Rudy and won a big game against Indiana on New Years.

    The Lakers obviously aren't anywhere near that Indiana team, but still, I'm hoping for a good win to start the year.

    I hope our guys didn't all get plastered last night in LA. I doubt DeMar would, as he stayed home to watch game tape a few years ago on New Years (and some Raps fans derided him when it didn't pay immediate dividends).

    But there must have been some tempting parties for the fellas.
