    I had friends who were DeRozan stans ask me, "how will you feel if DeRozan goes on to win a championship this year?"

    Didn't even need to dignify that with a response.
    If DeRozan ever wins a championship, he was at best the 3rd best player on that team

    Wow Lakers beat SA again. What is it with Demar & Lebron led teams?

    That team is not very good. With some apologies to the former Raptors, a "Big 3" of DeRozan, Aldridge, and Gay is going to have certain...limitations. 2nd worst DRTG in the entire league.

    Losing the guys they did hurts for sure, but even with them + Pop at the helm I'd think their best case scenario would have been scratching and clawing for the 8 spot.

    Just realized that the Spurs have the 2nd worst record in the West. Yikes.

    Game #27: TOR @ BKN, Friday December 7th 2018, 7:30 PM ET, SN1



    Starters:

    TOR:
    Lowry
    Green
    Leonard
    Siakam
    Valanciunas

    BKN:
    Russell
    Harris
    Crabbe
    Hollis-Jefferson
    Allen

    (Hopefully) Interesting stats:

    - Raptors rank 3rd in ORTG (113.7), 7th in DRTG (106.0), and 2nd in Net RTG (+7.7). We are 21-5. That's the most wins in the league (and best win %).
    - Nets rank 15th in ORTG (108.2), 22nd in DRTG (110.2), and 23rd in Net RTG (-2.0). They are 8-18. That's the 5th most losses in the league (tied for 5th worst in win %).
    - Brooklyn's biggest weakness is their defensive rebounding, which is 3rd worst in the league (69.7%). The Raptors are a mediocre offensive rebounding team (13th, 28.4%).
    - Brooklyn is 3-10 at home and 5-8 on the road, so no real home court advantage to speak of, it seems. Meanwhile, the Raptors are 11-3 at home and 10-2 on the road.

    Performance model predicts a Raptors win with a very nice 69% certainty.

    Edit: it should be noted that the performance model also only predicts a current record of 17 wins, not 21, so the Raps have been outperforming the model consistently.
