Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

                I mean I think he should. Its a perfect playoff scenario test with a days rest in between. If he doesn't then I'm load managing too.

                    I was looking at some of our line up stats on nba.com today. Nurse has really tried a lot of variations. Only 4 line ups have exceeded the 100 minute mark (we had 6 last year). The highest is at 547 minutes (starters with Serge) but a decent net rating of 8.3 (12th best in league, for lineups playing at least 200 minutes)

                    Danny makes a huge difference. Swapping him for Fred and the net rating goes down to -0.1 (and they've played over 100 minutes together).

                    Starters with Gasol have only played 62 minutes, but have a net rating of 11.0 (not as good with JV, but he had more time: 120 minutes, with a net rating of 21.4 )

                    With lineups that played at least 30 minutes...

                    The best defensive lineup is Kyle, Fred, Danny, Kawhi and Serge.. but have only played 33 minutes. Best defensive lineup with over 100 minutes played is Kyle, Danny, Kawhi, OG, Serge. Surprisingly no Siakam in either line up.

                    Our best offensive lineup is also our best defensive one. But again only 33 minutes. Best with over 100 minutes played is Fred, Danny, Kawhi, Siakam, Serge. Surprisingly no Kyle in this second one.

                    We only have 4 line ups with a negative net rating. And one of them is at -0.1 (the starting unit with Serge but Fred instead of Danny). The other three are:
                    • Fred, Wright, OG, Miles, Serge (2/5's of that lineup are now a Grizzly).
                    • Kyle, Danny, Norm, Siakam, Serge (even Kyle, Danny and Pascal can't make Norm look good here)
                    • Fred, Wright, OG, Miles, JV (3/5's of that lineup are now a Grizzly )

                    So this is all positive stuff. Just have to avoid pairing Norm with Kyle and Danny.. or more preferably, just keep him on the bench for as much as possible in the playoffs.


                    2-man lineups have a lot of noise I'm sure.. but what the heck (again >= 30 mins played), removing also our traded/waived players:

                    Best 2-man combo: Fred+Gasol
                    Worst 2-man combo: OG+Boucher
                    2-man combo who played the most together: Danny+Siakam (also our healthiest duo, so no surprise)
                    Best 2-man defensive combo: Siakam+Lin
                    Best 2-man offensive combo: Fred+Gasol

                      I'm glad Lowry is basically forced some rest. I know the new thing now is that hes a "rhythm" player, but I've been cringing the last few weeks of meaningless games. 40 min a night, hitting the deck, jumping into a sea of bodies with reckless abandon..we got lucky this injury isnt serious hopefully..but enough is enough. Keep the guy on a 25 min restriction when he gets back until playoffs, enough to keep the rhythm.
                      It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

                        We assumed FVV was a rhythm player, and the long rest has really helped him.
