    Makes such a difference not getting jobbed by the refs...

    Wonder how much Scottie winning the NBA ROTY helps us to get a fair whistle.
    I thought about this more than once this game, it certainly doesn't hurt I bet.

    Right on brand. It's never Joel's fault, always someone else

    Harden being aggressive helps the Raptors. He isn't a good finisher anymore. Be aggressive, attack the rim and blow some layups.

    Lol people have such short memories. FVV carried the Raptors in the 1st half of the season. He was a legitimate all star. But he hasn't been the same since the break. Why? because he has a knee injury. Now all of a sudden they're a better team without him? lol. I don't want to hear it. That's just flat out dumb.

    I'm sure crying to the media will be the first approach on the podium in a few minutes

    Joel Embiid on James Harden: “He just needs to be aggressive, he needs to be himself, that’s not really my job. That’s probably on coach to talk to him.”

    Man what a game! Raptors were just dialed in defensively. Pascal was awesome. Precious had a game. Scottie is so helpful to Pascal when he's healthy and available. OG missed a lot of shots, but hit the ones that mattered. He also had some really bad turnovers, but overall was super solid.

    Khem didn't lose his minutes which is ideal.. but he also helped with the 4 fouls. Second half wasn't too kind to him, but he was really good in the opening quarter.

    Joel looked so gassed and we just kept blowing by him. Man we have them right where we want them.

    Almost there!
    just gotta keep it up

    Sorry but losing Fred actually works for us better.
    In this case it does. Not because he isn't a good player, because he has been injured for a while now.

    Birch, for all the legitimate complaining... gave some great minutes in the first Q, and really helped to get us off on the right foot, absorbed 2 early fouls and FOUR total fouls in relatively short minutes... guaranteed some of those land on Precious who was MAGNIFICENT and ready late. If Precious gets into foul trouble -- I fear for our survival. If we can keep him available and ready... I'm getting more and more confident.

    Birch was real bad off the top of the third but we weathered it and it put us in a place to succeed.

    The pattern has been to give a Raptor 2 soft touch fouls in the first few minutes to set the tone. It's sad when the bball talking heads are saying "you know you're not going to get a fair whistle and you have to play through it"

    Freddy out for the series.
    Barnes in at PG.

    Do you start Khem, Precious or Thad?
    I'd prefer Precious but think the refs are going to give out two quick bull*hit fouls to a Raptor so might as well make it Khem or even Thad. If Birch, make those fouls hard fouls. Then sub in Precious and let him go to work.

    Game day, let's go!

    Well too bad because He bailed out on you when he found the little sailboat just to get away from a disaster infested Khem island

    Then you are all alone by yourself in that little island named Khem

    whatever positive he has done in the first quarter was an aberration to the totality of his body of work

    but carry on pursuing your undying agenda

    How crazy it is that with all the positives you can point out about the win….

    you still have to insert how effective Khem was in the first quarter and how “they” failed to use him in the third

    how ridiculous that is as a post game analysis

    They (the team) stopped using him as the primary screener and just sat him in the corner, so Embiid just ignored him and sat in the paint. Need to use Embiid's guy in all your actions to tire him out and not let him sit at the rim. With Khem the only way to do that is having him set screens on ball.
