    I didn't think it was a sarcastic smile, he smiled when he said it because he knows everybody talks about jvs 4th Q minutes.

    They ask him a minute later if part of it was matching with cousins, and he said no not at all, it was his pick n roll defense. His job isn't cousins, it's containing the ball, it's holiday.

    I thought that was really telling. Jv can earn minutes, he's just gotta play great d AND hit timely shots and board. Sure he's held to a higher standard than demar, but it's important to have 5 mobile players out there. It's in him to do it
    To piggyback on Dan's comment, I was worried when I saw him struggle to start with a TO and 2 missed shots. I think there are too many games where JV has a slip up or two and he gets the hook right away. Yesterday was a showcase that he should sometimes be given some time to play through early struggles as he usually gets better as the game goes along and he gets into a rhythm (which is obvious and true for most players).

    Sadly, I think Ibaka's early foul trouble was maybe the primary reason why JV was allowed to play through his initial shortcomings.

      • That pelican tasted mighty fine with some Lithuanian hot sauce. Now let's continue killing birds.

        This game would all but clinch home court advantage for us. Big one.

          I might just be an optimist, but for some reason I feel like the Raps start a stretch of wins here. This little break should help the team re-energize. And Casey has always been better with getting his ducks in a row with a few days to prep.
          Hmm, yes, one down. Keep it rolling, yaba.

          • Might have ourselves a playoff preview, might get chippy. On a side note bleacher report released an article with some playoff previews and they had Hawks beating us in 6 in the first round...

            First off....what proven Atlanta defense....secondly...where's the love????

            • The Hawks are sub .500 since the start of February, those guys are stumbling and ripe for the picking. The sans-Lowry surge continues for Les Raptors.

              Seriously, they do all the Spanish stuff in the States, let's get some Francophone Raptors nights at the ACC with 1/2 price poutine.

                Truly Quebecois night would be to provide a deck of smokes with the poutine...

                  Raps actually have Los Raptors warmups for some reason. I agree Les Raptors would make more sense.

                  But I'm onto you. You just want cheap poutine.

                          They don't have a very good selection. Not enough huskies stuff, and not enough Kyle and demar stuff.

                            Wtf that's just pure disrespect. And the only "playoff collapse" was the 2015 playoffs. This is just shoddy writing.

                              Is it really? Weve performed below expectations in literally every playoff series of the lowry dd casey core, with the exception of maybe cleveland where we did win 2 but still got spanked. And Lowry is still far from a guarantee to be back. Until we get that good news in early April, the first round is dicey at best
