    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.

    Good win, showed some much needed mental toughness despite all the mistakes. It's no small feat to limit Davis the way we did, so kudos to our bigs.

    I think you're arguing about whether a team is good over a season whereas I'm talking about playing for a single night, I'm obviously not suggesting the Pelicans are overall a good team in the grand scheme of things, but they have shown the ability to beat good teams recently so it's not like this was going to be a cake walk.
    Your single leg to stand on is they got the Spurs and a very badly slumping Cavs team....and ignoring they are still only 4-6 in their last 10. This not some team catching fire like the Heat or to a lesser degree the Sixers. Good teams can still have an off night and lose to them yes.

    But let's not act like 1. the Pelicans are a tough team because yes they are a garbage lottery team and are STILL playing at a relatively low level as indicated by their record in the last 10 and 2. this is more about OUR play and how tough we make this look to win games even against bad teams. We have looked terrible the past few weeks (doesn't mean we are a bad team) and my original statement was about how hard it seems for us just to get a W against a bad team (which they most certainly are). You made as if it's not a true statement when it is.

    It's really hard to tell on the angle we got, but it did look like it mostly bounced inbounds. Still a terrible call. The whistle was quite late. That makes it much more questionable to make that call, because it makes it feel like the ref didn't see the play but blew his whistle for some reason.

    Kyle fucking Lowry.

    He's probably the only reason I forgiven BC for drafting Bargnani.

    For the most part, that's how you"trade for an all star". You find one undervalued that isn't an all star yet but you see something special in. That's how the spurs got kawhi, that's how Boston got Thomas. Masai needs to pull off one of those

    Haha. Good for you mate.

    I kinda expected "a runaway" start for the Raptors. Took -4 Raps 1st half. I never chase back losses, so didn't take +9.5 Raps at half time

    I must have such a bad record when I bet on the Raptors... Fuck my heart. lol.

    So CoJo was a -18 with 3 assists, 1 turnover and 2 points on 1/6 shooting. Guy is garbage. I think it's the system.. only thing that makes any sense, but man.. how can he be worse than GV? At least GV could score and give you some Yolo moments.. he was the guy that scored the game tying shot in game 1 against Washington. Got spanked in OT but he still helped us get us there. I'm afraid anytime I see CoJo get into the game.

    Casey is too stubborn to fix it (we have two capable PG's rotting on the bench).. . we need Masai to force his hand. We can just duck tape his mouth, hands and feet up and just ship him back to San Antonio.

    Carroll was annoying to watch too.. but at least he's working hard. I have no idea what CoJo does on this team anymore other than help us lose.

    Actually pretty happy with this win. Not a great opponent, but they can be dangerous, they've knocked off several good teams this year. Fantastic job by JV all game both on Davis and in help situations, plus providing some scoring punch. BeBe too, for the most part. Powell stepped up, again. Of course. And KLOE, as ever. Overcame some sloppy play late in the game to close it out. Carroll was solid defensively (we won't discuss the other end), Patterson was his usual self. Joseph and Ross laid a couple eggs. Siakam looked pretty good too, actually.

    By the way, totally taking all the credit for this win. With the exception of CoJo playing too much, Casey actually did a lot of what I suggested in my WOWY thread. It was surreal - Siakam in with BeBe (without bringing him in early to play with JV), good starting lineup, the Powell+bench unit I'd hoped they'd experiment with. Everything's coming up Milhouse!

    Casey is reading RR. There's no other explanation.

    Ya, night and day compared to last year. I cringe every time he attempts a drive. A badly missed shot (or turnover) is almost guaranteed.

    Kyle Lowry. Also JV played great. The refs tried to hose us late in the game, should have been over in regulation

    He was able to get all the way to the lay-up time-after-time last season. Either other teams have figured him out, or Cory has lost a step in some way.

    I would say that teams have figured him out. Cory is fairly predictable and doesn' t have too many counter moves on his drives other than the step back fade-away. He doesn't have a great first step or cross-over move, and he doesn't shoot enough 3's to make defenders will play up on him. Raps have gotten a lot of exposure the last year, so with more winning comes better scouting and game-planning.
