    Any win in DEN is a good one, though this one pushes the limit of that rule. A terrible three quarters.

    Good news is, this team seems now to be good enough to decide to win games even when everything is going poorly. Lowry and JV in particular stopped dicking around and won the game for the Raps. DD was pretty consistent throughout. Nice to see the team survive some no-KL-no-DD minutes to start the 4th by putting JV out there with shooters around him.

    I'll take it. One down, four to go.
    We are only good enough to decide to win when it's a shit team. We couldn't execute down the stretch against Cleveland or golden state and it was mostly because of our horrible defense. I know they are the top dogs but they're who we have to beat moving forward.

      Thanks. Just like Bruno is the Raptors (unofficial and fingers-crossed temporary) mascot, he's my fantasy keepers league mascot - ie. kept on my roster for purely comedic reasons. My sig is this year's team name, last year it was "WHO WANTS TO SEX CABOCLO". Next year, we'll have to see about that.

      • Did you guys see hollis Jefferson clank not one not two but 3 attempted dunks tonight?

        The same Hollis Jefferson who had an all time college blooper falling flat on his back before leaving the ground on a breakaway dunk

        • Wow I honestly thought Demar had an off night today, then I go check his stats
          30/5/4/2 onn 48% percent shooting

          I feel he is going to break Vince's points average record for sure

            I know that stat sounds bad and certainly it's not good, but for context, 5 of those teams are in the top 12 in the league in pace.
            That may be true but by now we should be poised enough to dictate the pace. We always let other teams dictate how we play

              • Team was clearly gassed after the back to back, travel and then having to play in Denver. That's a very solid road win playing with a 1/4 tank.

                        dwane casey presser, once again, demonstrating that he doesn't understand the issues with his team. The defensive collapse is precipitated by playing too fast on offence. you can "execute" as well as you like in half court defence, but we're getting killed on transition because we take too many bad shots.
                        We're 20th in the league in pace. Playing too fast is not our issue.

                            Especially in the worst quarter for the Raps, the 2nd. A few too many times lately the Raps are playing ball the way the opponent wants to play instead of the way they need to play. Too many 100+ points against.

                            • I know Casey hand was forced, but I want to see more Bench + JV lineups. We cannot rely on Kyle and Demar playing 38+ minutes a game.

                              • Game #13: Toronto Raptors 99 - Sacramento Kings 102












                                Starting Lineups:

                                Raptors

                                PG - Kyle Lowry
                                SG - DeMar DeRozan
                                SF - DeMarre Carroll
                                PF - Pascal Siakam
                                C - Jonas Valanciunas

                                Kings

                                PG - Ty Lawson
                                SG - Arron Afflalo
                                SF - Rudy Gay
                                PF - DeMarcus Cousins
                                C - Kosta Koufos



                                Key Matchup:





                                Hopefully the Raptors are rested up for this game. Their last showing against Denver was anything but an easy win, going into overtime at high elevation. From the high ground of Denver the Raptors will descend into sunny Sacramento to meet the Kings. Although DeMarcus Cousins has seen time at the power forward spot, expect Jonas Valanciunas to match up with him on the court instead of Pascal Siakam. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan can be excited to face a backcourt that will have trouble slowing them down. But the real issue here is that the Raptors haven't been slowing their opponents down. Although the past few teams they've faced are known for their high scoring, fast-paced style of play, it is a bit of a concern that Toronto has not been able to stymie their offense by any significant amount. Hopefully they improve upon this against the Kings. The men of the North charge upon the royalty of Sacramento!
