    Iverson and VC sit courtside as the Sixers eliminate us in 6 in the 6...LeBron passes his crown to Simmons & Embiid meanwhile in year 6 of Bruno's contract we're 2 years away from having our franchise relocated to Seattle lol

    Matthew & the Leafs erase the city's memory the extinct Raptor franchise.

    Every Raptor sucked in at least one of the two games of these back-to-back losses, except 2 guys were consistently good in both: kyle lowry and norman powell. How can casey possibly justify sending him back to the end of the bench? The guy contributes and goes hard on both ends of the court!

    What kind of message does it said when minutes aren't earned based on ballin? Seems like seniority contracts and politics are taking precedent

    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.

    Nicki dumped Meek's ass, so somehow that is the least realistic of your predictions..

    all teams go through slumps, whatevA. as much hate as casey's gotten over the years he's grown as a coach and has become half intelligent at riding units that are working and not living and dying based on names/contracts. better we lose now and learn how to improve than have it all gravy until playoffs.

    Very surprised to see so much negativity here after that one. It was fun! No shame in losing in a scheduled loss against a very, very good team, especially short handed and considering how close they made it. The last play was garbage, but besides that? They started the right guys (though their timing was funny with the Grizzlies being one of the few teams Pat would struggle with defensively), they made the right adjustments (Gasol scored throughout, but not like he did early, and definitely not nearly as much late), they fought and scrapped and barring a few missed bunnies and bad turnovers and missed open shots (all of which are part and parcel with the whole scheduled loss thing) could have taken this one.

    Most importantly, they found that spark in the 4th in particular and looked more like the Raptors again. The team will be fine guys. They've looked better in the last two losses than they have since that BOS win.
    Completely agree. I don't like that Casey went back to Sully to start the third but yea. I feel much better about the last two losses than the first 3

    They(the raptors) are showing more fight in the last two game's and as much as this losing streak is frustrating the cav's are playing poorly downside boston picked up a game on us and have done so without Avery. We missed some very makable shots and our power forwards should improve in that regard. It baffles me how Gasol is only a 2 time all star although I believe he has missed big chunks of some season's. Vince pulled a stunning move for a old fart.
