    The manner in which Casey handled it pretty much snuffed any controversy, in my opinion.

    DeMar deserved to be benched.
    DeMar was frustrated and made a bad decision.
    Casey spoke to DeMar.
    DeMar realized he messed up.
    Casey downplayed it publicly.
    DeMar acknowledged his poor judgement publicly.
    DeMar responded with a game emulating what the coaches are asking from him.
    Everybody moved on.
    Case closed.
    Happens with the best of players.

    Demar doesn't have a bad attitude, he just has bad composure, which he used to be the best at in the business in my opinion.

    Gonna say this again. Demar, just work harder, play as well as you've been doing recently on both ends of the floor, and you'll be back to closing games.

    I don't know who played worse - Kleiza or Bayless. Given my bias, I'll go with Bayless.

    Hahaha Love the honesty Matt.

    Love me some Casey. Everyone has to earn it. Everyone.
    +3 - if he played hard in the first half , the last thing he would have had to worry about was closing the game.

    Im also assuming that with the couple days of practice we had before the all-start game, everyone had some things they were suppose to work on/ accomplish.... maybe he didnt do it. I dont think Casey has to justify his benching to any of us. If indeed it was a Barbosa showcase, then BC should be the one answering to the fans. Lets just make sure we point the fingers in the right direction folks.

    After the first half I said the words to my bro, "wasn't Casey supposed to have a short leash? He hasn't used it on Demar".
    I like the message - see if he has the stones to respond in the right way ... on the court, every night.

    "He kind of lollygags at times, doesn’t use his body to get separation from his man and won’t use screens effectively."

    If that is why they sat him, I'm okay with it. As long as they show him some film and point to the problem areas so he can improve.

    Oh man. I've been agreeing with Doug Smith a lot lately - what is going on?

    the coaches have been harping about with DeMar all season;When they run stuff for him that involves him curling off a screen, or cutting across the lane, he simply does not work hard enough to get open.I think someone needs to say to him:

    How did DeMar feeling about sitting the 4th?

    Ryan Wolstat ‏ @WolstatSun
    RT @DeMar_DeRozan: Straight Bulls#!+

    Funny because that is how I felt about the entire game.

    It is incredible they could play so bad yet have a chance to win and only lose by 3.

    18 turnovers - wow.

    I don't know who played worse - Kleiza or Bayless. Given my bias, I'll go with Bayless.

    I would really like to hear why DeRozan was kept out of the fourth. I thought he played with strong will and determination the first three, and did a credible job defensively. Kleiza was cold from long distance, as was everybody. Raptors shot in the hing forties I believe and the |Rockets in the high thirties, but the balance from 3 pt land was waaaay in Houston's favour. Made the difference.

    Jamaal Magloire (hate to say it) really did wonders for us defensively tonight.
