Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

  • Going to be interesting to see how Pascal deals with Gordon in this series. You have to think there has been some serious video studying going on. Will Pascal come up with some wrinkles to improve his effectiveness in this matchup? And I wonder what Nurse and crew have provided in the way of offensive plays to help Spicy P out.

      Isaac will probably defend Pascal while Gordon will defend Kawhi. Pick and roll will solve this. Gordon at least is too big to be able to fight through the screens. If he goes under Kawhi will shoot every time. If they switch obviously that creates a lot of problems for them whether it's a big posting up on a small or a blow by on the perimiter. I think for this series at least Kawhi should probably reign in the iso's. Gordon is basically the perfect matchup for him because of his strength.

        I think the main hurdle was Isaac (though Gordon switched on to him fairly often). I think he'll have a good series, but it might be in the sense that his gravity will keep their good defenders occupied, while our backcourt (and Gasol) are free to do their damage. Orlando has trouble defending guards, this could be a series where we could see a high impact from Lowry/Green/FVV.

        That said, playoffs are full of adjustments and counter-adjustments, so things could look quite different from the reg season games against them.

          I think Siakam needs to not iso as much in the half court, doesn't work well against Isaac's length. Transition buckets and hopefully his 3s continue to fall.

            Well, I dont have the numbers in front of me (shout out danh) but I haven't seen many guys figure out how to stop siakam 1 on 1 yet
            It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

              Id say Blake did the best job on him of anyone this season. Quick and mobile but still strong. Gordon kinda has that make-up although they primarly used issac on pascal when we played. I think the reason blake roasted him tho was that he was attacking him on offense wearing him down on both ends of the floor. could be a strategy magic use. But if their going to play heavily though gordon i think well take that over fournier open 3s and vuvevic post ups.

                    • Surprise of the playoffs so far for me. No idea he would be this impactful. I mean, we all knew he was good. But this good? Come on, really? Who has the balls to say they expected this?

                          He's developed a variety of attacks using his length, handle and athleticism. His back down move on Ross with the pump fake up and under for a 3 pt play (oops I think he missed the FT) is old school cool.

                          • Siakam is actually a god. Totally unstoppable. Hes too fast for big guys, too good in the post against smaller guys, has a midrange game and can hit 3s.
