    The way the ref called the butler foul was a bit strange. He watched the ball until it was clearly gonna be short and then quickly made the call. He didn't make the call on the release. His head followed the ball. Only other thing to me was that he was looked back after the shot and called smart for crowding butler's landing spot on the way down. If so, thats really weak call for last shot to win. The other ref never flinched and he was equidistant with clear line of sight.
    I believe we've run into mr Zarba before

        Make no mistake tho guys. If we keep playing like this, teams like Spurs gonna blow us out by 20 every fucking day. Need to get back to basic stuff. Ibaka will help obviously.
        Like what?
        First 15 mins or so of ball movement, decent D & some iso -result up by 14;
        Next 20 mins or so (rest of 2nd Q & all of 3rd): Iso, more iso, poor D -result down by 31.
        Fourth Q: Perfect team BBall with "Spurs like" ball movement, lots of dribble penetration; Solid D (yes, against lousy team, but still solid) with active hands;
        Result: Won Q by 22.

        Why are there only 2 people (Casey & Demar) that don't understand (and are not willing to make changes)?
        Mind boggling!
        Now, Demar is a solid iso player with very good mid-range game, but when that becomes predictable (which is often, esp when Kyle gives him a ball at half court & -you know the rest).

          As someone pointed out basketball is mental and for some reason Demar has lost his positive decision making of early season. Early if his shot was not going he became a distributor then came back to his shot later when the opposing team had to adjust to his distributor mode. He seems to not to have that flexibility and mental strength now.
          And that makes his shot (or iso play) sooo much more difficult to guard.

            Noteworthy
            • Down 17 points after three quarters Feb. 15 vs. Charlotte, Toronto outscored the Hornets 32-10 in the fourth quarter for its largest comeback victory of the season. The win also tied the third largest fourth quarter comeback in franchise history.

            • According to Elias, it was only the sixth time in the shot-clock era that a team outscored its opponent
            by 20-or-more points in the fourth after being outscored in the third quarter by at least 20 points.

            • Kyle Lowry is averaging 30.0 points and 5.3 assists, while shooting 56 percent (28-for-50) from the field in three games versus the Celtics this year.

            • Toronto entered NBA All-Star Weekend with 33 victories. This is the fourth consecutive season the Raptors reached the All-Star break with a +.500 record and third straight year the team won at least 30 games.

            • Serge Ibakas 89 playoff appearances is the most on the Raptors current roster, 42 games more than the next closest player (DeMarre Carroll).

            • Dwane Casey is four wins away from his 300th career coaching victory. There are currently 10 active head coaches in the NBA with 300+ career victories and eight with a +.500-winning percentage

            • Jonas Valanciunas has scored in double figures in nine of the last 10 games (Jan. 29 - Feb. 15). During this stretch, he is averaging 15.1 points while shooting .578 (63-for-109) from the field.

            • Kyle Lowry has made at least four three-pointers in five consecutive games (Feb. 6-15). He is shooting .429 (21-for-49) from beyond the arc during this stretch.

            • With the addition of Serge Ibaka (Republic of Congo), the Raptors have seven players on the roster born outside of the United States, which his tied with Utah for the most in the NBA.

                      Nah, I'm not salty. I've been asleep all day..... was up the majority of the night & missed the deadline completely. I wanted to wake up to enjoy the game, as I thought we were done. But we added Tucker at the last second.
