      Stanley's *trying* ... Raps are up 20, but he's a -4
      In normal times and maybe a different coach Stanley is a utility guy. 9th, 10th off the bench.

        This team needs guys that can shoot trent is a breath of fresh air. Hood is 50% fga career hope he sticks around.

        As i was saying awhile ago flynn will be better than fred soon. 3 assists off freds career high already. Defensively similar but a lot better offensively. He works his way down the middle more and if the shot isnt there he has a lot of options from there unlike fred who goes down the far side and gets very limited passing choices

        way more excited than several hours ago. Crazy ssn

              Flynn has a nice in/out hesitation game. Very different style from Lowry or FVV.
              He's a mini Tony Parker.

                I'm...Gary Trent Jr..is really..really looking like a steal, well..hood will be gone, he can take his money and little from staney, bye Stanley..14 million..at 4 years, 48 to 52 million, probably get's it done..but you know who really impressed me Freddie Gillespie, I like the way kid plays, I was watching him defensive end, he doesn't make mistakes..
                I Love that we have 100 million in salary sitting and cheerleading and laughing, let's give those guys a standing ovation..
                What are we doing, we are not far from the playoffs..are we really tanking,wtf..
                I'm not a huge fan of tanking and praying that the bouncing ball might land on number 1..
                I think these guys should be playing and let's make a run, let's show nba that the raptors are relevant..
                I don't know, anyway even when this team wins, Stanley and Baynes still Suck.☹

                  Was that the bench (Norm for Trent) plus OG or what !!!

                  that idiotic theory of we don’t have a bench is well debunked lol

                  Siakam and Van Vleet just did not live up to the expectations when they started this season

                  it’s quiet funny to really think of it from the so called experts....

                  I have a strong feeling...this will go back to the COVID excuse again next game

                    • Nice to see a bunch of guys show up tonight! Gary Trent Jr at the age of 22 was a steal. Imagine what an off-season in the program might do.

                      Yuta, Bembery and Flynn played well, and OG just let the other guys have their day. Fun game to watch. I think with a bit more competent depth (yes I’m looking at you Stanley) and a true 5 this team will be back in the top half of the east.

                      • Norm shot 2 for 10 for 9 points against the Pistons last night

                        Comment


                        • Wow that first half was so much fun. I know I should have been sad for the tank, but man that was a blast. Was looking like that Golden State pounding we had a week or so back. Everybody was on fire. It was nuts.

                          But yeah, 13 points in the third quarter essentially told you that it was fool's gold.. especially against a team that has a worse record than you. Raptors ended up winning, but I think the Cavs brought it back to a reasonable 12 point game at one point. So not very good.

                          Trent was really awesome. Another career high for him. It looked like he was going to break his previous +/- record, but couldn't because of that 3rd quarter.. either way still ended up with a really awesome +31. If not for Trent's production, Flynn would have been the player of the game. 20 and 11 with 2 steals. He was just setting everyone up.. could have had a few more assists if guys didn't botch things up.

                          You need opportunity in the NBA.. and when you get it you have to prove what you can do with it. Flynn is definitely a keeper, and we knocked another draft pick out of the park. Just a really good player. He plays a lot like Tony Parker. A year or two more of development, and and I can see him being a top 10 PG in the league. Just love his defensive IQ. He's always in the right spots.

                          Watanabe seems to have finished his sessions with his shrink after getting dunked on. The kid has rebounded and is playing well again. 6-7 with 5 boards, and some pretty good hustle stats. Good for him.

                          Tanking wise last night was not a good night. Raps beat Cleveland. Detroit lost. Kings lost. Wizards lost. Thunder lost. Rockets lost.

                          Back in the 8th slot in the draft.. and only a game up on the Kings for 9th. Still 3 games back of the Bulls (including the tie breaker) though. That one I still don't think we'll get even if our crew all come back. Unless if Birch gets all of Baynes' minutes. We'll see what happens.

                          Last year the Hornets moved from 9th to the top 4. But yeah the 9th pick is a pretty sad pick to get after having to watch this dreadful season.

                            Nick did his best to recover the tank effort running out Stan and Baynes for a long stretch in the 3rd and 4th to let them back within those 12 points, but as soon as even a couple starters subbed back in we pulled away with ease. It's a game of runs and it was never really close even with Nick's best efforts.

                            All this with us missing Lowry, Fred AND Pascal and not having our "we don't have to play Baynes anymore" addition. Heck with Pascal back we might not play Baynes OR Stan.

                              We've already said that regardless of what Masai and Bobby might prefer, you aren't getting Nurse and certainly not NBA players to purposely lose; they're going to win a few games

                                It was nice to see even if it was against the Cavs. It felt like with the roster so depleted, the guys who suited up were playing really loose. Maybe the lack of pressure to win or lose helped them relax?

                                How much is this driving up Trent Jr.'s worth with him already having two career nights in his brief time with the Raps?
