Ryan Wolstat

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."

Mike Mazzeo

Greivis Vasquez after sweep: "Basically, we need a Paul Pierce that's gonna talk that trash. We don't have that." wpo.st/tJnE0

Emiliano Carchia

Greivis Vasquez: We need a Paul Pierce that's gonna talk that trash sportando.com/en/usa/nba/159…

Ryan Wolstat

Greivis Vasquez, voice of reason, was a stunning, late-season development. But he’s right. They were hogs it hurt offensive efficiency and D

Payal Doshi

"We have to get back to our defensive principles," - Greivis Vasquez

Payal Doshi

Vasquez suggest you shouldn't point figures. Everyone should be held accountable for what happened this season. #rtz

Payal Doshi

"I still love our city. I still love our fans. We are a little bit embarrassed," - Vasquez on locker clean out day.

Ryan Wolstat

On the end of these Raptors (particularly strong takes from Patterson/Vasquez) more on Amir/JJ torontosun.com/2015/04/27/rap… http://t.co/Rdn30s0nba

Josh Lewenberg

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"

Ryan Wolstat

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

Rashad Mobley

Greivis is an ample back up point guard, but Lowry is the head..like Voltron. And without Voltron, the Raptors are a different team

Eric Smith

A-Williams tells us on @Sportsnet / @FAN590 he'd change starting line up tonight. Vasquez in; he's PG (Kyle & DD off ball) + TH in for Amir

Ryan Wolstat

"We're struggling. We're not hitting shots and that's costing us the series.” - Greivis Vasquez. Toronto ranked No. 3 in offensive rating

John Schuhmann

Both halves, Vasquez & Williams have come in together, with one of the starting guards staying on the floor.

Eric Koreen

Raptors using Vasquez, Lou, Lowry and Pat together basically ensures they'll get slated on the boards, even if they get initial stop.

Eric Koreen

Raps using Lou, Greivis and Kyle together.

Josh Lewenberg

Did Greivis just take half a charge?

Ryan Wolstat

Greivis Vasquez takes a charge on John Wall. Drink everything you have.

Josh Lewenberg

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"

Josh Lewenberg

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"

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis says we'll see more of the "Maryland shimmy" if they win four games in a row. So, there's that.

Ryan Wolstat

Off to the land of Lonny Baxter, Juan Dixon and Greivis Vasquez

Eric Smith

I recently sat down w/ @Greivis Vasquez to discuss his season & the series against the Wiz. sportsnet.ca/basketball/nba… @Toronto Raptors #RTZ #Raptors

Eric Koreen

Vasquez: "Playoffs mean you have to play with everything we you got. I don’t think we did.”

Ryan Wolstat

"We have to play with passion. We've done it before." Vasquez

Ryan Wolstat

Don’t blame this all on Casey. Masai declined to get a big at the deadline, no third PG despite Vasquez lack of D ...

Josh Lewenberg

Fear not, we're about 3 minutes away from Greivis time (I'm only half kidding, sadly)

Josh Lewenberg

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

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry killed the Raptors in the first half. Pure and simple. If he plays smarter, hits some shots, Vasquez sits more, Raptors lead.

Rashad Mobley

Lowry's absence is starting to hurt the Raptors now. Wall is running wild and Greivis isnt getting them in their offense

Eric Koreen

Greivis Vasquez is not having a very good half.

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry and Vasquez killing the Raptors defensively with different styles.

Mike Prada

Great drive by Beal but that was some dreadful defense by Vasquez.

Eric Koreen

Can't put your forearm on a rebounder's back, Greivis.

Eric Smith

Gortat is 5/5 for 10 pts. Wiz down 5 now. 1:36 to go. Amir just missed 2 ft's & picked up a charge. Vasquez 2/2 ft, raps now up 7. #ritz

Eric Koreen

Raps going Vasquez-Lou-Lowry. It's flawed, but allows them to switch on a lot.

Eric Koreen

Greivis just talk a "well, his heart is in the right place" shot.

Eric Smith

Beal’s reaction to Vasquez’s compliment of Pierce: “I’m not gonna say that, but Paul is a warrior.”

Jorge Castillo

Pierce’s reaction to Vasquez’s compliment: “No comment.”

Chris Herring

Wut. RT @Jorge Castillo: Wittman’s response to Greivis Vasquez saying Pierce has “big balls”: “All NBA balls are the same.”

Paul Pierce laughs and says he has no comment when told of Greivis' "big balls" comment.
