Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

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.

    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.

    And beat them worse than the final score shows. Wall had 1 point in 26 minutes.
    Trade us Beal for a future 3rd round pick ....

    Is this real? I haven't seen anyone else mention it. If so, it's not a great look on Siakam.
    lol, no. Pascal's twitter handle is PSkills43 not PSkills. C'mon, man.... this is the internet.

    I missed this one but could it have been for rebounding? That's the only situational sub I ever see him in for.
    the original comment wasn't super clear, but he pulled JV on a defensive possession in favour of van Vleet (fucking lol). Then their 7 footer got an uncontested shot 2 feet from the basket because we had no inside presence.

    No one here can explain it to you.

    I'm not sure Nurse could come up with a believable explanation.

    The most likely explanation is Nurse made a really bad decision that made no sense, and deserves to be called an idiot for the way things played out.

    Three things happened tonight:

    1. The team as a whole outside of Kawhi is shooting 3's like shit, as you mentioned
    2. Lowry in particular is in a slump
    3. They got out rebounded badly again. Very badly. Gave up 16 o-boards. Even with all the crap shooting, you even up the rebounding and the Raps still win somewhat comfortably. This team is not going to rebound well unless they're really intentional about it. Have to make it a priority.

    It's not Pascal, it's some dumb Raps fan.

    The thing is that we’re watching the game from a high camera angle. At floor level and game speed, I would suspect those passing lanes aren’t there or are very high risk against NBA level athletes with crazy length.
    I've been to two games, and it looks bad in person as well. Not at floor level, but from a good vantage point where spacing is very obvious. Sometimes the window is massive. Like the defender gets clobbered on the screen and FVV literally has 2+ seconds to make the pass (an eternity on the p'n'r) and a big hole that is easily 5+ feet wide (sometimes it looks like 7-8 feet wide, about a third of the space within the 3pt line, possibly even more at times), and he just looks it off.

    If you miss the chance to get that pass even just a couple or handful of times in a game, and instead go out of control into traffic for a turnover or bad shot, that can be a swing of several points. It would piss me off less if FVV was just dribbling/passing back out to reset, but he's too frequently forcing the issue in the paint...the worst possible decision he could make.

    *It doesn't help that Miles shares a lot of minutes with Fred, so on a bad night both guys are just killing us with their decisions.
