    Yeah... our guy seems to be pretty adaptable this year to doing what is required to win...
    It's pretty remarkable. I'd kind of gotten used to Demar getting a little better at something each year, but this season has been a revelation. It's still early, but it really looks completely sustainable. It doesn't look difficult or forced, and he's seeing teammates, and handling the ball... I can't think of another year-over-year improvement like this in any player I've seen...

        On the subject of garbage time, the Hawks joined the Mavs in losing by over 25 points last night. That broke the Hawks streak of 150 regular season games in a row without getting blown out by 25+, which had been the 2nd longest such streak in the league.

        We have the longest streak, with our game last night stretching it to 274 in a row.
        That sounds....not surprising. That's the exact feeling I've gotten over these past 50 and 40 win seasons. Even when we lose, which is still often enough, we don't lose by that much. I think that has to speak for something and it speaks to a team that has gotten better each year.


        • Russell Westbrook is averaging a triple double.

              Westbrook is really lighting it up and he has a ton of talent... BUT it really is a one man show down in OKC... just wonder how long the other 14 guys are going to be happy seeing the ball once a quarter on a good night...

              After an extended run of this ... its possible the supporting cast just takes their foot off the gas a touch and "watches" Russell do it all by himself..Yes I see the assist totals.. but I also see they are more times than not... a second option...
              And with the 4th overall pick the Toronto Raptors select..... Scottie Barnes.

                  Last Meeting:
                  GAME 81 - April 12, 2016 PHILADELPHIA 98 TORONTO 122

                  With the postseason in mind, Casey carefully regulated the minutes of most of his players, with rookie Norman Powell the only one to get more than 30 minutes of action. Powell responded with 18 points, while Jonas Valanciunas chipped in with 17 more and 11 rebounds for his team-leading 22nd double-double of the season. Philadelphia, which lost its 15th straight road game, last beat Toronto on Jan. 18, 2013. With the loss, Philadelphia became just the fourth team in NBA history with 71 or more losses in a single season. It was a record-setting first 24 minutes for the Sixers, who converted 11-of-20 from beyond the arc, setting a new team mark for 3s in a first half, per Elias Sports. Former three-time UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre was sitting courtside. The Montreal native, who hasn't retired but hasn't fought in the Octagon since 2013, was given a team jersey and play-fought with the Raptors' mascot. In his sixth career game against his hometown team, Sixers forward Nik Stauskas, who grew up down the road from the Air Canada Centre, was warmly cheered when his name was announced in the starting line-ups and had 13 points, a career-high against Toronto. The 2015-16 Atlantic Division banner to celebrate their third consecutive division crown, was hanging in the rafters. James Johnson (plantar fasciitis) sat out his second straight game to rest his foot. With the victory, Toronto became just the ninth team in the last four seasons to register 55 or more regular-season wins.


                  - After playing eight of their past 10 games on the road, the Toronto Raptors open a season-long six-game homestand Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers.
                  - The Raptors own a 45-35 series advantage. They have won the last 12 meetings.
                  - The Raptors (10-6) are 4-3 at home and Philadelphia is 0-5 on the road this season.
                  - The 76ers (4-13) are coming off a 112-108 loss to the Cavaliers at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday after leading for the first three quarters.
                  - Meanwhile, the Raptors have won two straight games after suffering two consecutive setbacks and are currently at second place behind the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference standings.
                  - Philadelphia Center Joel Embiid, who is coming back from foot injuries that cost him the past two seasons, will not make the trip to Toronto. The game Monday will be the sixth he will have missed this season.
                  - The Raptors (10-6) are 4-3 at home and Philadelphia is 0-5 on the road this season.
                  - The Raptors made a season-best 14 3-pointers against the Bucks and had double-digit scoring from six players.
                  - Forward DeMarre Carroll is improving as he returns from knee surgery and that should help the Raptors' defense. He also scored 14 points on Friday.

                  Go RAPS!

                            Zainab is undefeated. The Scola talisman is working. Even I can have no complaints right now.


                            • Don't know where to find this stat, but Philly has usually played tough this year for 3 quarters, then seems to have blown more 4th quarter leads than any other team.
                              If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.


                              • Need a mod to fix that title. For a second there I thought we were playing the Bucks again.
