Imagine you were 10 per cent as confident as Greivis Vasquez.
This has not been Greivis Vasquez's finest evening.
They will not be writing odes about this Greivis Vasquez performance.
Where Raps miss Lowry: W/ Lou playing well Casey may prefer to use him off ball, meaning more PT for Vasquez, who's not having a good night
Toronto took a 61-57 lead on a 3 from Vasquez, capping a quick 7-0 Raptors run. Valanciunas leads 'em with 17 points on 7 of 11 FG's.
Ross has 10 points in third, and just made a nice read in transition for a Vasquez 3.
Vasquez has tied career high with 6-3s
Chances are a perimeter of Lou, Vasquez and DeRozan is going to have a tough time defending.
Vasquez ties career high with his 6th three-ball of the night. He's got 22 points, 3 shy of season-high, 5 away from career-best
Greivis Vasquez Can't Miss
G. Vasquez after last wk TOR-CHI: "I don’t even know why we're thinking that we're something. We're nobody." So far tonite, 17p, 5/6 3FGs
Pretty good half for DeRozan in challenging matchup vs Butler. Hasn't forced his game. Ross and Vasquez have stepped up, taking pressure off
Aaron Brooks picks up a foul for putting his head where Greivis Vasquez's elbow was.
Greivis Vasquez just hit a step-back 3. Sure.
Make that 5-for-6 from deep for Ross and Vasquez. They've combined for 21 of the Raptors' 27 first-quarter pts. Raps lead is 13
Raptors shot 1-for-10 from 3 in the first half last night. Vasquez and Ross are a combined 4-of-5 from distance in opening 8 mins tonight
More like Treyvis Vasquez.
1:51 to go, Patterson inches TOR ahead by 1, AGAIN. Raps have never had a lead of more than 1. Vasquez fouls Jackson. FT's comin. 102-101
Couple quick Raps buckets - Amir layup, Greivis 3-ball - to start the 4th and just like that the deficit is down to 5
Raptors' perimeter options, ranked by true shooting % 1. Lou 2. Lowry 3. Ross 4. Vasquez 5. DeRozan
With some distance, that's a very good turn-around season for Maryland. Most persevering, talented group since Greivis and friends in 2010.
Vasquez misinterprets feed Jonas with just throw it up in his general vicinity and hope and he goes and gets it ... He didn't.
Kyle Lowry (sore back) in uniform for TOR but Grevis Vasquez starting at PG. Taj Gibson, out past 10g (ankle sprain), active for CHI.
Seems like Lowry won't play after all. Casey had said he would get full work load if he's able to go at all and Vasquez gets the start.
Grievis Vasquez is starting at PG for the Raptors. Lowry is active but if he's not starting that probably means he won't play.
When Lowry, Lou and Vasquez share the floor, the Raptors score less than usual and allow fewer points than usual. Nothing makes sense.
Raptors were +5 in 6:17 with Lowry/Vasquez/Lou trio on the floor. Started to succumb to Indy's defensive pressure over last couple mins
Not sure its sustainable (especially vs teams w/ more weapons on perimeter) but Raps are getting good mins from Lowry/Vasquez/Lou trio here
Of the Raptors' 10 most popular lineups, the most successful: Vasquez, Lou, Ross, Patterson, Hansbrough.
