what the raptors defense does is take away your soul. lebron and AD basically gave up at the end there. they busted their tail vs the clippers but our defense took all their will away.

He was the point of attack, along with lebron, on the defensive side of the ball, this team is ELITE defensively.

He's such a scummy low key hater.

Like sure, that's the second arbitrary stat game Lowry has had. Why write it like that tho?

And almost more points than AD and Lebron combined. What a time to be alive.

To me, that sounded like a compliment, rather than an insult.

As in, Lowry's 34 and still showing that he is still at the top of his game and capable of putting up numbers he hasn't put up before.

raptors perimeter defense was so suffercating they couldn't make a clean pass down low. and when they did they crowded him. Siakam did great against AD tonight terms of positioning.

Annoyed that somebody forgot to put the shot clock somewhere on the screen.

Also, maybe just me but the score also seemed to change a tad bit faster than what I'm used to. Almost like whoever's responsible already knew the shot was going in or not before the action on the screen.


Definitely noticed these things as well. Good job pointing it out. We'd score and I'd look at the score and it was often already changed. Not too much of a deal as the shot clock though. Shot clock pressured shots just seemed like really dumb shots.

there's probably a second delay in the broadcast to accomodate the announcers, so score appears faster.


I was actually wondering if the game was tape-delayed or something.
