  • Tonight's game really shows what Lowry brings to the table..... and if you kept up with Lewenberg all day, you know Kyle wanted to play. He was taking shots, stretching, doing test with the medics, etc for hours before game time.... and yet, he was told he wasn't ready.

    Lowry brings a sense of ease to both the starters & bench that Fred's lacked most of the year. I hope that with all the work he put in today that Lowry's close to coming back. We need him.

    • Nothings gonna change unless they add some real 3pt shooters.

      I'm tired of watching OG and Wright and FVV and Powell and Miles chuck up 3's after 3's.

        You build your confidence in regular season. I'm tired of people acting like regular season doesn't matter.
        Yes and no. Like Kawhi said, regular season is kind of like practice. It matters, but mainly to build chemistry on the court. What's concerning is how dis-jointed the team looks on both ends. I know it's part of Nurse's 'unpredictable' free flowing jazz music philosophy, but jazz can sound like a whole lot of noise at times. That's exactly what it looks like right now: a bunch of disonant noise and then each player trying to take a solo.

          Well hopefully if he was close for this game, maybe he could be ready for one of our weekend games...

          • Raptors' players three-point shooting:

            Kyle Lowry: 40% last year, 33% this year

            Danny Green: 36% last year, 40% this year

            Kawhi Leonard: 38% in 16-17, 36% this year

            Pascal Siakam: 22% last year, 35% this year

            Serge Ibaka: 36% last year, 29% this year

            Fred VanVleet: 41% last year, 36% this year

            Delon Wright: 37% last year, 32% this year

            Norman Powell: 29% last year, 33% this year

            CJ Miles: 36% last year, 27% this year

            OG Anunoby: 37% last year, 34% this year

            Jonas Valanciunas: 40% last year, 30% this year


            Team Overall: 36% last year (18th), 34% this year (24th)


            That's three players (Green, Siakam and Powell) who have improved so far this year, while everyone else has regressed, some significantly so. This doesn't do much besides confirm the obvious eye test, but I wanted to check out the full numbers...for myself as much as anyone else

              Their half court offense is basically give it to Kawhi. Just 1 on 1.

                FVV and Miles are real 3-pt shooters - at least until this year.

                  Nurse wants every player to be able to read the defense and then improvise. They're not getting the hang of it yet.

                    Funny how everybody wants JV traded every 10th game or so for the last 5 years...... apparently size and skill actually help to win basketball games.
                    I have never been on the trade JV train.

                    He's a dbl dbl machine when given the minutes and actually fed inside once in awhile. Lowry and DD virtually ignored him for long stretches and Casey evidently hated him, sitting him for long stretches after starting a game hot. Not sulking, actually the opposite off the bench and putting up high NBA PER numbers, lauded as a great teammate. Funny guy too.

                        The Bucks, Celtics and Warriors don't do that.

                        Those are the 3 biggest threats to our title chances.

                          True. But this team is so predictable. And they had no idea what to do everytime Kawhi gets double teamed.

                            • The whole team spent the whole game clanking open 3's.

                              All this whining about the offence, the defence was porous that game. Easy transition buckets and layups.

                              What were Raps down at half, 16? Houston down 17 at half in Oakland.

                              I don't mind Raps playing the long game. Get healthy, get back in sync.
