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.

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

            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.

              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

                    But only 6.5 games back of 1st. That split would be good for 6th in the East. The Parity out West is scary.

                              This is what you call a trap game. After Brooklyn we go up against 7 tough opponents in a row.

                              With LeVert out this should be easy. Just need a good game.. and not like the one against the Cavs. That one sucked.
