  • No quotes from shoot around yet? When are we going to get a statement from the raptors on their next course of action?

    Quote directly from nba 2 minute report page:
    Similar to our instant replay standards, there must be clear and conclusive video evidence in order to make a determination that a play was incorrectly officiated.

      Iirc bebe was matched up with boogie. Not sure if Rudy was on but that's all sac has in any lineup.
      The defense has been consistently bad. The offense has been good. Jv is the anchor of the defense and I think hes one of our worst defenders. We can try to have a shoot out every game but defense is key in the playoffs. At the same time I think jv will be huge in the half court offense in the playoffs. Both jv and biz were useful in the playoffs last yr.
      BeBe matched up with Boogie for less than 3 minutes.

        Isn't the ref the one that starts the clock? He has his hand on a device on his belt.
        Yes, each ref plus the arena timekeeper has a transmitter, and as soon as any of them press the button, the clocks starts. (I didn't know this before last night.) So likely he pressed the button even before he visibly started to signal time-in. Again, all the more reason to think that there was nothing here that was any different than what happens on any deflected inbounds pass (and which is never reviewed or reversed).

        • Is anyone else totally unable to do anything today except wait for the NBA last-two-minute report, despite knowing full well that it's just going to be some lame justification of the call?

            Yes. I am not able to accept this one. I want video proof that it was even 2.5 seconds from deflection to ross shot before we can even begin to accept it. TheScore has released their own version, I should hope the nba has a counter.

            It's 2016. Is there Not technology to run a stop watch in sync with a video that starts on the cousins touch freeze frame, and ends on the ross release freeze frame??

              well that sinks that argument.

              only on RR would someone look at a 36 point half and claim that the defence was the problem because of JV.

              • Game 14: Toronto Raptors 115 - Los Angeles Clippers 123

                On the heels of the felony theft game vs the Kings the Raps have to turn it around and take on a true western power in the Los Angeles Clippers.

                Docs boys have taken care of business since the get go and pose a formidable challenge for the Raptors. The Clips are led by consensus all star PG Chris Paul. He is flanked by a talented sucker punching Blake Griffin and a rebounding machine in DeAndre Jordan. They have very good 3 point shooting from old man river Jamal Crawford and the very dependable JJ Reddick. If they have a weakness its a falloff in the bench after Crawford and Speights come in. Only losses coming to the OKC Thunder and the Grizz. Interestingly enough both have come at home.

                The Raps unlike their legions of fans will have put the WWE ending to last nights game behind them and have moved on to the task at hand. Lowry should get a good workout with Paul and that matchup will be fun to watch. JV will give something up to the more athletic Jordan but its not a big mismatch. Jv will make his foul shots and Jordan.. well.. not so much. DD will bounce back from last nights subpar performance and the game will likely hinge on how well Ppat can handle Blake Griffin.

                Starting Lineups

                Kyle vs Paul at PG - Even
                Demar vs Reddick at SG .. Slight Edge Raps
                Demarre vs Luc Mbah a Moute at SF - Even
                Siakam and PPat vs Griffin at PF - Ewww... going to be tough
                Jonas vs Jordan at C - Slight Edge to Clips
                Raps Bench vs Clips Bench - Edge to Raps


                Keys to the Game.

                Ppat and Siakam keeping Griffin in check. Hope we have enough fouls to last the game.

                DD doesn't have to get 30 but we need 20 and it has to be efficient.

                JV and Bebe have to win the battle on the glass with Jordan and we have to box out Griffin on the offensive boards. If we don't its going to be a long night. Between our 3 C's we have 18 fouls to give to make Jordan a liability at the line.

                Tighten up the perimeter defense on Crawford and Reddick.

                Fearless and Completely Biased Prediction

                Clips like to play slow and we will oblige as it plays to our strength. We always play the Clips tough on the road and tonight is no different. Kinda expect a benefical whistle tonight. Raps gather themselves and pull out a win.

                      I find it odd that, as of 5:45, there is still no "2 Minute report". Thought they came out earlier

                      • DeMarre is resting tonight OP.

                        Also as much as I love Lowry, I'd give Paul the slight edge over him.

                                Honestly this just gets more and more shady.

                                It's almost like they enjoy adding fuel to the fire. Controversy sells?
