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.

    NOTES:
    • After game 3: Marc Gasol on Lowry: "That rebound. Talk about that rebound. That was the game. That's Kyle. And that has nothing to do with scoring. He stuck his nose in there, he ran through that ball and he got the rebound. He won the game for us."
    • Going into this series, Siakam had never logged more than 28 minutes in any of his 12 career playoff games. He's averaging 40.1 minutes this postseason. Only Paul George (41.6) has played more. (@jlew1050)
    • No other Raptor other than Vince Carter has scored 30 or more points in a playoff game in his first three seasons--until Pascal Siakam.
    • In 1997, Charles Barkley threw a man through a bar window in Orlando.
    • Load management is over. Nick Nurse revealed after the game that Kawhi had not practised for the previous two days while battling an illness, yet fought through it to give the Raps 37 minutes.
    • In Game 3, Kyle Lowry recorded his 7th playoff points-assists double-double. This is more than all other Raptors combined: Chris Childs (3), Jose Calderon (1), T.J. Ford (1), Cory Joseph (1).
    • Marc Gasol has been doing work on Nikola Vucevic (h/t reddit /u/raptorsbucketnator) :

    Right now, Steve Clifford is in major troubles, he put alot of effort to stop Kawahi, but Siakam has emerged as a scary monster, Now, game 4, Clifford will do his best to keep stopping Kawahi and trying to stop Siakam. Guess what ?
    Danny Green and KL will emerge.

    This is a very good aspect of this team.

        My take is Kawhi's performance had more to do with Kawhi than anything the Magic did. Yes they amped up the pressure, but he still had open looks from spots he normally hits on his jumper. I don't recall him hitting a single jump shot. He also tried to force his way through multiple defenders which typically resulted in a turnover. Hopefully Kawhi is feeling better and if so suspect he gives the Raps a much better performance. Look out Magic, Game 2 Raptors about to be unleashed in Game 4. Even FVV will hit a few 3's (or at least make a lay-up)!!

                  Raptors don't have to go shopping for a major free agent acquisition...they grew one in their own backyard. With Bird Rights. Now they can sit back and wait for the ring chasers to start appearing next March.

                    Bucks are on the brink of sweeping Pistons, 3-0 for Bucks.
                    Man, when we meet them we need every atom of effort.

                      Bucks laid another beat down on the woefully overmatched Pistons. Interestingly the play-by-play guy had this quote from Casey "Thon Maker reminds me of a young Pascal Siakam".

                        Yeah, but I think that says more about the Pistons than it does about the Bucks. I mean, Bucks are good of course, but Pistons just stumbled their way into the playoffs last minute as an 8th seed and banged up without their best player, had all the makings of a sweep from the get-go.

                        Bucks should have a wake up call about what real playoffs are when they play Boston in the second round (though I think they'll still advance).

                          we haven't had 1 game yet where all of the starters play up to their average level. Pascal and marc have been the most consistent. Danny struggled all series and kyle and kawhi have each had a bad game. couple this with no real contribution from the bench and we're sitting pretty right now think Sunday we finally see an all around solid performance from all 5 starters and Orlando starts thinking holy shit we don't have the talent to match these 5.

                            LOL Thon Maker is nowhere near as athletic as Siakam, his ball handling is nowhere near as good as well. The only similarities they have is theyre both black.
