Ross definitely had the green light to jack up shots. Even BC was laughing in his interview and made a comment about it. I think he'll be a nice scoring punch off the bench opening night. I missed the third quarter of the game but did notice Ed Davis looked way more comfortable with his jumper.
As for Ed Davis, he looked so much better offensively than just a couple months ago. This was the first time I thought that he will be a better NBA player than Amir Johnson. He looked assertive and much more confident in his jumper. Despite what some of you have said, he looked like he had bulked up... impressive start for him.
Raps played a decent game, considering they were possibly playing the actual Rockets NBA team.
acy...I liked his aggression and the fact that he can hit a 15 footer consistently. he is not a shot blocker like ed and I agree that his rebounding awareness needs work along with defensive rotations but its summer league. amir, ed , acy someone has to go they are redundant
I did not watch the game yesterday, but I did catch some on re-run today, I am surprised that no one mentioned Devoe Joseph. While the spotlight was on the new rookies and Ed, I thought Devoe played well and earned every minute of the 26 he played. I think he showed some potential to be a guy that can carve out a few years in the NBA he just needs the right fit.
I would not hesitate to making Devoe the 14th or 15th guy on our roster for 4 reasons.
2.) 700,000 to 800,000 dollar minimum deal
3.) Good stroke
4.) Could be a rotation guy three years out.
Ross finished with 21 points, he was pretty comfortable in taking those shots. Ed Davis looks almost as good as he was in his rookie year, but better offensively.
Im a huge fan of Faried and I see a lot of Farieds game in Acy. And if Acy has the energy and tenacity of Faried, the Raps would really benefit from that, even if that's for 15minutes a game. Because hustle players are really undervalued in todays game
Looks like Bayless might have serious competition in Memphis with Wroten and Selby.*
*Summer League means very little!
We'll dominate Miami tomorrow. It'll be our first win against them since bosh joined lol, even though it's summer league

Dwane Casey on what he saw at the #Raptors first #NBASummerLeague game: "A lot of mistakes"
He looked really impressive. Rockets drafting is always so good with late picks.
With Fields finally becoming a Raptor will we see any of him in the summer league action??
Montiejunas had a different experience in his second summer league game, 0 for 5 from the field, 1 point, 4 rebounds, -15 in +/- in 22 minutes against the Wizards. Perhaps he is not ready to fill Scola's shoes just yet.
Lamb had 26 points. T. Jones was solid. Royce White has not impressed yet in Vegas.
