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.

    Double team one of the splash. Let the other go off for 40 who cares. This team has no one else to score tomorrow, we should have it in the bag!
    You don't need to do that.. Klay and Steph are too smart to avoid traps like that.. they can swing it to someone who can get a free bucket at the rim or a wide open 3.. and even though you can't trust their other guys.. a wide open 3 is a wide open 3.

    Just play defense like we've done all series. Just need to execute better on offense. They won't have KD that can rattle off like 11 points in 12 minutes. That will help.

    Tomorrow in my opinion will be a lot like game 4. Klay came back that game.. as did Looney.. and they only scored 92 points. The splash brothers had 55 between them and we still won by 13. And they won the first quarter that game too.

      Just don't fall too far behind in the first Q (fans say it's all over, we've lost the game and the series lol)
      Be even or at worst a few point behind by the half (fans say "I have a bad feeling about this")
      Win the 3Q against GS usual best Q (Still nervous, pleading for them not to blow it)
      Win comfortably by 12 (I knew it all along, best team ever, Nurse is a genius, Kawhi, he stay!)

      What can I make with this on Proline?

        The play was garbage not because it ended with Lowry shooting, but because it ended with Lowry shooting a contested shot with no time for a pump fake and getting it blocked. If anything it might make sense to run the play through Lowry using Kawhi as the screener (or vice versa) so that it's far tougher to trap either of them and force the ball out of their hands.
        Not sure if it was actually a play call for Lowry as much as a Kawhi ISO that ended up in a broken play. I would have called a timeout and then setup a Kawhi ISO and for sure had Siakam & Ibaka out there, just for putbacks. Was thinking about the Siakam ISO end-of-game winner vs. the Suns as a curveball they wouldn't expect, but for some reason Nurse benched Pascal for most of the 4th quarter.

          I think it ends tomorrow night. Karma and the basketball gods were not going to allow a Canada takeover of game 4 to be the last game at Oracle, and there wasn't going to be a celebration on the same night that a top 15 all-time player goes down with a potential career changing injury and we cheered for that.

            My friend went with the gamblers fallacy "you can't win 3 at oracle"

            Like saying you can't draw a red card 3 times in a row from a deck of cards. Why the fuck not?

              Yeah. Won 4 straight against Bucks are much harder.

              GSW is out of the card, the reason they played KD in GM5 is because they know they can't beat Raptors without him.

                Yeah, these analysts and predictors are over the top for me at this stage. Can't listen to the media anymore. It's about can GSW win it in 7 and every game for Raptors is a must win (including the last one).

                  So far this series Thompson is shooting 20-35 from three

                  The last two times the Warriors faced elimination in a Game 6 (2016 OKC and 2018 Houston), he had a combined 76 points while shooting 20-34 from three

                    You could apply the same logic to the people saying "they wont hit 20 3s again". Its funny because I keep on seeing the same arguments used by philly and bucks fans. "Siakam wont go off like that again. Kawhi cant keep on hitting contested midrange shots".

                      Funny fact though. Hilarious actually (at least for me) is that Pierce has become biggest Raptors supporter, oh the irony.

                        GSW closed off Kawhi. He never got to his spot and had to give it up. He should have went quicker initially but the Warriors played really good defense on that play and it was a terrific play to recover to the shooter cause Lowry is wide open in that situation against 99% of teams.

                          But they had to have anticipated the double on the iso...everybody is complaining about the momentum killing timeout, but this is the LACK OF timeout that bothered me more. Set something up to FREE kawhi off a pick and let him read it from there, that was too simple

                            It only took three rounds of embarrassment after embarrassment for it to occur.

                                Nurse gets the benefit of the doubt from me, though, I think a good argument can be made that a timeout should have been taken. The big benefit to me would have been to move the ball up into the half court and have the potential to get a quick hitter right off the in-bounds, maybe and offensive rebound, too. As it went, the whole thing was very slow and they gave themselves no margin for error....
