    The thing is that Nurse is willing to experiment and lose games for the sake of developing better long-term habits, i.e, Process over Results. For years, we roasted Casey for not doing what Nurse is doing now.
    Yeah, my issues with Nurse have often been exactly which experiments he chooses to run and for how long. But can't argue with the idea.

    Yeah before Derozan was traded Nurse literally said that he will not try to hide Demar and force him to defend his position. It's the same thing with Siakam. Siakam needs to embrace this opportunity and learn how to be effective defender and not foul out.

    Havent gotten time to watch the game yet, but if Nurse keeps making decisions with a goal of sending a message hes going to start costing the team games.

    He's not gonna earn it overnight, it will take some time. Part of the problem is that he's being tasked to guard the best opposing player (like Giannis yesterday). They didn't have Kawhi do that last regular season, nor should they have Pascal do it now. First step is to put OG on the other team's best player, so Siakam can stay on the floor longer, with more energy on the offensive end, which is where we really need him.

    Everyone who posts on Reddit appropriates the "Redditor" voice. They all sound the same, they all make the same points, if they find something they disagree with they will respond the exact same way, everytime. It's interesting.
    Actually clicking on thread on reddit are pointless, only thing its good for is seeing highlights plays while you watch your game of choice on a night where 6+ games are going on.

    Also the Raptors specific reddit all seems to be people who have only been watching raptors the last 4 years and give analysis like there leo rautins. We got some real raps historians here at RR.

    Not sure about the Raptors specific site, but it seems like 3/4 of NBA reddit is people who dont watch games but regurgitate information from popular writers and posters. Pretty cringy too.

    That's good hes over there. Reddit is a safe place for all the snowflakes to get outraged together.

    I cringed typing that like a trump honk, but I feel its appropriate in this case

    Last season the basketball gods rewarded the Raptors with Kawhi to make up for their past Vince Carter debacle.

    This season the Raptors got a Siakam to make up for T-mac leaving town before blowing up.

    From reddit: Pascal is the only player out of the top 20 scorers with 50/40/90 splits.

    He's averaging 28 points (6th) on 51/44/96 shooting

    Pretty dumb seeing harden and Russ so high. As predicted, it's not meshing very well. Yeah yeah weve seen your acts before. Harden will get 30 40 50 60 pts. Westbrook will get his triple double. But they're .500 and every single game had been scratch and claw to the end.

    to me it says a lot about Westbrook that hes this supposed MVP top 10 guy , and so far it looks like this is the worst version of the rockets harden has had. Hes better off with four 3&d roll players on the floor with him.
    Its a bit of a stretch to say its not working imo. The offense functions well, the problem is defense. Its a problem that the team only plays at one end, but its also fixable. The narrative that they don't fit is wrong imo - though its fair to ask how they play in a 7 game series. Agreed though, anyone who says they are both -or frankly either- are MVP candidates is absurd.
