    If Kawhi stays, I would not mind snatching players like Mike Scott, Ennis and the Celtics Morris, long players with decent defense and threat from the outside. These kind of players to round out the bench supporting Superman.

    Best and Worst Awards


    - Worst performance: I had to give this to Greg Monroe. The Sixers backup center graded out at a minus-9 in 1 minute, 41 seconds of action. He also turned the ball over and missed his one field-goal attempt during his brief time on the floor.
    Masai knew when he released Monroe that he would eventually end up with the Sixers, torpedo us somewhat in a prior game to fully gain the Sixers trust and then turn on them like a Raptor secret double agent

    Best and Worst Awards


    - Best performance: This goes to Leonard. He scored a game-high 41 points to go with eight rebounds, three assists and three steals. The 27-year-old also hit the game-winning shot, a 15-foot, fadeaway jumper at the buzzer.

    - Worst performance: I had to give this to Greg Monroe. The Sixers backup center graded out at a minus-9 in 1 minute, 41 seconds of action. He also turned the ball over and missed his one field-goal attempt during his brief time on the floor.

    - Best defensive performance: Gasol receives this award for his team-high three blocks and for guarding Embiid.

    - Worst statistic: This goes to the

    - Best statistic: This goes to

    The offensive rebounds, led by Ibaka and Leonard with 4 each, and turnovers kept us in this game. We turned the tables on this one as the Sixers up until this game has been the one winning the rebound stat. Who would've thought Monroe would have helped us (non-traditional way) win this game. BTW Fred VV in 15 minutes went 0 - 5 but made all 4 of his free throw attempts and overall was a +10. The only starter with a positive +/- was Kyle Lowry at +2. Ibaka led the team with a +22 rating.

    On the night, we had 24 more field goal attempts (89 to 65) than the Sixers. WOW.

    More than half a day had gone past after that epic shot by Kawhi.

    Time to critique:

    1. If aint broken then dont fix it, cliche that this coach should drill into his head. Game 5 coaching performance was spectacular but Nicky cant help it and went back to his old ways in Game 6.

    2. Continue to limit exposure of his most limited back up Point Guard. Because he aint the answer in guarding Brogdon nor Hill and even Connaughton.

    3. Load management should still be off the table.

    4. Maximize the strengths of his starters, after game 1, he would already know who to teether to who moving forward.

    5. He has 48 hours to work on some more effective after time out plays because Kawhi may not be that lucky anymore next time around.

    Yes your correct, playing solid defence will be a must. My view on the offence needing to score the ball better is based on Milwaukee's performance this season and playoffs. They have more offensive weapons than both Orlando and Philly and their guards put a ton of pressure on a team's defence by constantly driving to the rim drawing fouls or kicking out to open shooters. We've also seen the Buck's have shooting slumps similar to our team. Like Kawhi for the Raptors, they have Giannis who can score in the paint and also live at the foul line.
    It has always felt like the Raptors are surprisingly comfortable playing in those ugly slugfests during the Lowry era.

    Agreed but important to note that in all 8 Raptor victories so far, they have held the opposition to under 100 points.

    Here comes the bandwagon lol. Now we'll start getting texts like "Who is Pascal Siakam?" during the games.
    My uncle in Saskatchewan text me last night in the 3rd q

    "Lowrie should stop shooting and give it to the other guy?"

    Joining the thread late but did we get an update on Lowry's thumb?

    Also if that final play isn't being sold on either t-shirts or posters; they're throwing money down the drain. I also think it might have sealed Kawhi's return next season.

    Underrated stat of the game last night: every single Raptor who played had at least 1 offensive rebound. For a team that was looking seriously outmatched on the boards earlier in this series, a dedicated team effort to rebounding was vital.
