    Kawhi was not great last night because we are judging him based on the standards we know Kawhi can be. Having said that, there is a big difference between Kawhi bad and Lowry bad. Kawhi still plays good defence and rebounds the ball well when his shot isn't falling ( he also find other ways to score). With Lowry when he has a bad game its usually a total collapse in everything else he does because then he starts to play reckless and totally deviates from the game plan.
    Kawhi was the first Raptor since 2010 to have 30pts & 15 rebounds.. if you don’t think that’s great, I’m not sure what you’re hoping for. He’s not gonna rack up 70pts and 30rebounds.

    Really what it’s coming down to is closing right now. For our team as a whole. They play well enough to come away with a win for much of the game but in crunch time things are falling apart. That’s what happens with a new coach, new superstar, injuries and ejections.



    Before our first game when everyone was so concerned about how it’d take a while for us to gel, I didn’t see it that way. Ever the optimist. And through the first 13 games, we got by on our obscene talent, even when there were clear signs that we’re still learning to run.

    Well, we’re still tied for first in the league, but this is what learning looks like folks. These are the growing pains, the early season struggles.

    • 4th quarter negative net rating is sometimes a sign of trouble closing out, but not always. It's also inflated (as in getting more negative) on good teams that are capable of building healthy leads early, because they rest the starters and put 3rd stringers to close out.

      In other words, the garbage time effect: you put the 3rd unit there on blowouts, the 4th quarter is lost, but the game is won,
      2019 NBA Champions. Glad to have doubted the doubters.

      • What caused the turn around. Posters were saying "regular season success don't mean a thing. It's performance in the playoffs that count."

        Suddenly regular season success is important? Come on guys. Get your shit straight.

        Love Raptor fans.

          • Meh this thread devolved worse than the Raptors in the 4th quarter

              • I rather Lowry play like shit now and the law of averages evens out in April-June than vice versa (like in years past).

                  Raptor fans, they could win the lottery and then complain that the jackpot was only 5 million.
