    Now if we could manage be more efficient scoring with those extra possessions we'd be cooking the league. Fred and Gary are not the most efficient guards and tend to drag those numbers down.

    The Nick Nurse defensive system at work.

    For the third season in a row, the Raptors are forcing the highest amount of turnovers in the league while rarely turning it over themselves. They are also grabbing the third highest percentage of offensive rebounds in the league and ranking in the middle of the pack on the defensive glass, giving them a historically high number of possessions to play with — and their opponents a historically low amount. In fact, the Raptors are averaging 8.5 extra scoring chances per game than their opponent, which is 4.5 more than the No. 2 team and the same difference between the second team and the 18th team.
    That’s a shocking number given most NBA are decided by fairly small margins.

    Coaching 'doesn't matter'
    Of course it doesn't, just ask the winners in New Jersey, they could coach themselves.

    I hope Griff gets a head coaching job one day, but I hope he doesn't get that one. Being Lebron's coach is a thankless job.
    It's a time limited job as he eventually throws the coach under the bus

    Well, the upside would be that he goes there, there's conflict between him and the LeBron crew which leads to another messy Lakers season, he gets let go and comes back to the Raptors where the stink of his LA time is washed off of him in three years time during which he gets to add two more championship rings to his resume.

    I heard Pascal's agent was pushing for the hire of Earl Watson. Sounds like Pascal does most of his workouts with him.

    Why not poach somebody in the West like GSW's assistant coach Kenny Atkinson or Bruce Fraser or player development coach Jama Mahlalela and weaken a conference rival? Or Clippers Brian Shaw or Jay Larranaga. Like Portland took Chauncey Billups. Maybe look at Phoenix?

    Now that would be a smarter move. Of course baby bron and Clutch will have to approve....
    We brought in Earl Watson last year. He's also a Rico Hines guy, so that probably helped Pascal.
