Norm is being wasted on Portland. They really play like the raptors of old just lillard and McCollum taking turns chucking. Granted they’re good/efficient but yeah they barely move the ball.

And of course Suqmadiq Bey goes 0 for all after going off against us.

Drummond -8 in 14 minutes.
2-6
0-2 from the line
3 turnovers
4 fouls

It's so unfortunate he got injured. :winkgrin:

Being around Klay, draymond and Curry has totally revamped Andrew Wiggins. He looks like a really good player now.

Magic really playing good now. Not sure why, but they have a lot of guys who can actually play (more than the Raps right now). If they beat the Pels tonight, they're up to 17 wins.

But NAW for the Pels is blossoming before our eyes.

[edit] Take it back - Magic still don't have a PG. Ross has to initiate all the offence. It's not pretty.

Denver is so good. You can't keep up with their offense.

Cole Anthony should be back soon.

PIstons should be getting Killian Hayes back soon. 8-)

Evan Fournier's debut was 33 minutes, 0 points on 0 for 10 shooting! :D

Portland is trying to top the Raps point differential from the other night - they're currently up on the Thunder 104-59 at the end of the 3rd. Yikes.

Bulls with nice win over the Nets. Great for the Raps tank/staying out of play-in position. Vooch and Lavine PnR really is a new element to their offense that makes them a lot more dangerous. Moves 1.5 games ahead of Raptors.

What the hell is going on with Orlando? They're 18 points up on Denver at the end of the 2nd quarter.

Mo Bamba is back playing, and giving them some scoring. He's alternating with Wendell Carter. Okeke is starting blossom. That was such a good series of trades by them. Management has to recognize when you don't have the right mix of players.

Magic don't need to tank. They have enough young talent and picks. They should try to create a winning culture in advance of Isaac returning next season. :wink:

He had a nice 1st quarter vs Raps but then OG tightened up the D and shut him down. GSW board complaining he is too passive, he is what he is, although some blame Kerr for not getting him enough shots, motion offense too much equal opportunity.

I think we started a trend, been a few big blowouts since our GSW game. Knicks blew Pistons away too

I know it's not the exact same, but Justin Jackson had a nice game against us, and a few days later OKC waives him.

Aaron Gordon on Orlando: "I am unhappy, trade me" while he adds little value compared to his contract and the star centre carries the team offensively. Stats: 15 PPG; 7 boards; 4 assists

Aaron Gordon on Denver: "I am happy, finally" while he adds little value compared to his contract and the star centre carries the team offensively. Stats: 13 PPG; 5 boards; 3 assists

I would love to have the blessed life of Aaron Gordon sitting on a max deal doing slightly less each year. To win he just needed an MVP and a star PG around him to make him look like a player of value.

Return to Toronto Raptors
