This game was the best case scenario. Compete hard while our guys show some personal improvement to build on for next year.

Also, when did Birch become the hybrid of Gasol and Ibaka? Lol

They better not going into another season with Siakam as the best player. It was apparent early last season that he isn’t skilled enough to lead a team, the Celtic series should have stamped it. At this point even his fans gotta see it.

Hot take?

Raptors make the finals and potentially beat the Lakers if not for Pascal laying a dump against Boston

I get that he competes defensively, but I've seen so many lazy plays on defense. His guy gets by him easy or he makes a stupid decision.

Worst series I’ve ever seen from a first option and he got a pass too! Lowry/Derozan have been scrutinized for less.

Dare I say Nurse needs to balance these all bench or all starter lineups.

Not really a hot take. I think a lot of us believe that, and it is perfectly reasonable.

I truly believe this Is intentional sabotage. This is how the sausage that is tanking is made.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

There was about a 0% chance we beat the Lakers.

DeRozan averaging 18/3/3 on 32% shooting while having the 3rd worst NetRTG on the team against the Pacers in 2015/16 was worse than Siakam against the Celtics. Siakam was really bad offensively against the Celtics, but was our 2nd most impactful player defensively.

10 FG attempts in 47 total minutes from our bench. That's directly correlated to the PG play of you know who.

What happened late in the game? I was watching a stream with no sound and it looked like FVV/Flynn was called for a foul with about 12 seconds left that Nurse wanted to challenge and the ref straight up shook his head and said "no" then the Jazz got the ball side out of bounds...which also was dumb because they should have been shooting free throws.

Either way, the officiating was awful again. We had, what, 5 FTA in the first quarter (3 came at the buzzer) then 4 in the other 3 quarters? We scored more than half of our points in the paint, yet we only got 9 FTA. Another joke of a game against Utah where we were hosed by the refs.

LMAO I'm sorry I've defended him all year but I can't anymore. The last excuse I have left is he lost 15 pounds. But losing 15 pounds doesn't mean you sulk after every missed shot and put your hands up looking ffor a Whistle, or let your guy blow right by you.

Utah has some shooters man. Joe and Bo connection is like Klay and Curry out there.
2019 Eastern Conference All Stars

Derozan
Lowry
Ibaka
Valanciunas
Van Vleet
Delon Wright
Lebron
Embiid

There are only 2 teams in the league that rank in the top 6 in offensive and defensive efficiency: the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.
