Underrated quote from Greivis Vasquez last night on if there should be changes: "It’s not for me to judge I’m not a GM, I’m a point guard."
Greivis Vasquez, voice of reason, was a stunning, late-season development. But he’s right. They were hogs it hurt offensive efficiency and D
"We have to get back to our defensive principles," - Greivis Vasquez
"I still love our city. I still love our fans. We are a little bit embarrassed," - Vasquez on locker clean out day.
Vasquez: "We all have to blame ourselves... They just hit us and we couldn’t get back up. We just lost. The better team won the series"
Vasquez said it will be an interesting summer. Obviously disappointed that all the promise of great start is gone.
El venezolano Greivis Vásquez de Toronto Raptors es eliminado del playoffs 2015 tras la barrida que les propinó Washington Wizards
Greivis is an ample back up point guard, but Lowry is the head..like Voltron. And without Voltron, the Raptors are a different team
"We're struggling. We're not hitting shots and that's costing us the series.” - Greivis Vasquez. Toronto ranked No. 3 in offensive rating
Both halves, Vasquez & Williams have come in together, with one of the starting guards staying on the floor.
Raptors using Vasquez, Lou, Lowry and Pat together basically ensures they'll get slated on the boards, even if they get initial stop.
Raps using Lou, Greivis and Kyle together.
Did Greivis just take half a charge?
Greivis Vasquez takes a charge on John Wall. Drink everything you have.
Greivis: "I’m not going to back down. I might not be the greatest athlete but I will hit some big shots and I’m going to hit somebody"
Greivis: "You know what? I woke up this morning & I was like, regardless of the outcome, personally I think we have to show more toughness"
Greivis says we'll see more of the "Maryland shimmy" if they win four games in a row. So, there's that.
Vasquez: "Playoffs mean you have to play with everything we you got. I don’t think we did.”
"We have to play with passion. We've done it before." Vasquez
Don’t blame this all on Casey. Masai declined to get a big at the deadline, no third PG despite Vasquez lack of D ...
Fear not, we're about 3 minutes away from Greivis time (I'm only half kidding, sadly)
Lowry's foul trouble hurts in more ways than 1. Vasquez (a -19 in 15 mins) can't hang w/ Wall/Beal. Hard to overcome such a glaring mismatch
Lowry killed the Raptors in the first half. Pure and simple. If he plays smarter, hits some shots, Vasquez sits more, Raptors lead.
Lowry's absence is starting to hurt the Raptors now. Wall is running wild and Greivis isnt getting them in their offense
Greivis Vasquez is not having a very good half.
Lowry and Vasquez killing the Raptors defensively with different styles.
Great drive by Beal but that was some dreadful defense by Vasquez.
Can't put your forearm on a rebounder's back, Greivis.
Raps going Vasquez-Lou-Lowry. It's flawed, but allows them to switch on a lot.
Greivis just talk a "well, his heart is in the right place" shot.
Question to Casey on Greivis: “Does he make you as crazy as he makes you happy at times?” “Yes, I have a lot of guys like that.”
Beal’s reaction to Vasquez’s compliment of Pierce: “I’m not gonna say that, but Paul is a warrior.”
Pierce’s reaction to Vasquez’s compliment: “No comment.”
Paul Pierce laughs and says he has no comment when told of Greivis' "big balls" comment.
