    Yeah, 4 minute drought started at the 6 minute mark of the 4th quarter cost them the game.

    I do agree that the Bembry/Johnson combo makes it really tough on others but the turning point was Baynes coming in and just muddying everything up. It really got them out of sync.

    Even for all that, they were up 7 with about 1:00 left. They gave up two wide open threes and a layup in that stretch, while missing two free throws and two makeable shots.

    The loss was well earned.
    I never thought I'd have to deal with Rafael Aruajo again as a Raptor fan. But he's back, with an Aussie accent.

    I exaggerate, but he's my least liked player since Carroll. Another swing and a miss in the free agency market for Masai. Seriously, love Masai, but look at his signings since coming here. I won't include fringe roster guys, just ones brought in with expectations to contribute:

    Tyler Hansbrough
    DJ Augustin (trash when here)
    Austin Daye
    Greg Steimsma
    Demarre Carroll
    Cory Joseph
    Luis Scola
    Bismack Biyombo
    Jared Sullinger
    Patrick McCaw
    Jeremy Lin
    Aaron Baynes
    Alex Len

    Phewwww. That's 13 guys and maybe 2 pretty good signings (Cojo and Bismack, althought they left for nothing in return). Other than that, a steaming, stinking pile of shit.

    Please stop talking about free agents. This team can't find anyone who will come here for a reasonable salary that is actually a good NBA player in his prime. Bismack and Africa connections and Cojo was from Toronto and they're our only 2 mediocre pickups .

    I didn't watch it and don't want to but sounds like the games they had early when they kept losing 4th quarters.

    First time we've been gutted at the buzzer in awhile
    Best “in the moment” perspective.

    Tough loss last night... but for those who play any sport you know the other guys/team are trying just as hard to win as you are holds true.
    Hopefully the cavalry comes over the hill in Charlotte.
    35 games to go....

    Heartbreaking loss.

    2 Missed freethrows by Norm and some ill advised shots at the end costed us the win.

    Don't want to say to much about that epic collapse. Just hope we can get healthy and right this ship. Or we don't and get a better draft slot.

    At this point I just really want this season to be over one way or another.

    Last night's game was a perfect example of why you can't play Bembry and Stanley together for too long stretches. It forces other guys to take on more USG than they can handle and their ORTG plummets. Last night, that load shifted to Lowry (29%) and Baynes (24%), with predictable results.

    So even with Powell, Boucher and Stanley having great ORTGs, above their normal efficiency...... those eventual long scoring droughts we have become accustomed to, were unavoidable. And those guys (+ McCaw) don't bring enough elite defense to make up for how much they cripple the offense with their low USG. I like both those guys, and even at the same time, but not for long stretches. It puts way too much pressure on Lowry to create off the dribble last night, which has never been his game, and even less so at 35.

    Watching Norm makes you wonder, what if he had signed with a crappy team from day one, with lots of minutes, would he be a 20 point plus scorer for the last few years on a crappy team? Borderline all star???

    That's too bad. For a good part of this game, for some reason I felt Stanley with the headband was playing really loose and really well. Like og's brother. Pretty much everything went well in that game except for 2 meltdowns, lol.

    2 fake losses without 3/5 starters
    ehh, blowing a game in which we were up 15 with 6 minutes left and the opponent was also missing two of their best players is not what i would term a fake loss. it's pretty legit i think

    We had them on the ropes, but the Stanley Bembry gamble let the Hawks back into the game.
