The Raptors should offer Draymond Green the max in RFA. It would be fruitless, but what fun!

Michael Grange

Fun fact: There are 90 players who avg at least 11 FGA/G; Raptors most frequent shooters rank 67; 80 and 81 in FG%: basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl…

Josh Lewenberg

With Toronto down 34, all five Raptors starters are subbed out together just over 3 mins into the 3rd quarter. Crowd applauds sarcastically

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors make a line change. Fans finally cheer.

Eric Koreen

Raptors line change.

Ryan Wolstat

Not passing to Valanciunas was one thing, now, it seems DeRozan won’t pass to anybody.

Eric Koreen

What do you guys want to talk about?

Ryan Wolstat

Warriors up 32 points. Raptors have scored 33 points.

Ryan Wolstat

Not even sure if Rudy Gay hogged the ball as much as DeRozan is right now. This is something to see.

Eric Koreen

In good Raptors news, Bebe is wearing a gold tight with a sharp royal blue blazer.

Josh Lewenberg

Not even a great half for NBA-best Warriors but cant recall seeing Raptors look worse this season. Raps down 23. Halftime on @TSN1050Radio

Mike Ganter

Raps down 54-31 at the half. It feels like the deficit is double that. Raps shooting 24.3%. Warriors shooting 40% from field.

Eric Koreen

Warriors 54, Raptors 31. Feel free to start your other Friday night plans early.

Josh Lewenberg

Two in a row for DeRozan!

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan's first FG comes with 90 seconds remaining the first half. He's now 1-for-10

Ryan Wolstat

Don’t forget excessive celebration by Warriors in Oakland earlier this year royally pissed off Raptors … but no real response tonight.

Ryan Wolstat

DeRozan and Lowry are a combined 1-for-15 from the field. Ross and Amir 5-for-9, everybody else 2-for-24!

Eric Koreen

Ross tried to take on Green, got ball poked away from him. Collected it, did the same thing, missed contested 19-footer. Sure.

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry is back in the game. No word on what caused his brief locker room visit.

Josh Lewenberg

Should add, Ross breaking out of his funk would be best case scenario for Raps, restoring normalcy to rotation thats been in flux for months

Payal Doshi

Slick move by Steph passing it behind the back to Draymond Green who seamlessly knocks down the 3! #DubNation

Josh Lewenberg

Terrence Ross has as many field goals (3) as his teammates, because, of course.

Eric Koreen

It's as if the Raptors didn't have enough of Marreese Speights killing them in Oakland. Can't let that guy shoot.

Payal Doshi

That hurts1 RT @SNhughburrill: 1 for 19 in the 1st qtr? Yup. 1 for 19 in the first qtr. #ouch http://t.co/4nxYpldEln

Michael Grange

I was right!: "The @Toronto Raptors set team record for lowest FG% in a quarter at. 05.3 (1-19). Old: 06.7 (1-15) ...."

Paul Jones

#Raptors shoot 1/19 in 1st qtr. The 5.3% is the lowest qtr shooting percentage in franchise history #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

Nothing against Jalen, Muggsy, etc. but this MoPete tribute is actually well-deserved.

Eric Koreen

Raps shot 5.3% from field in first quarter, a franchise low.

Ryan Wolstat

Ugly http://t.co/QWR4Bg6wdU

Eric Koreen

The Raptors scored a bucket, and Steve Kerr just called a full timeout. Relatively, that makes sense.

Ryan Wolstat

The only thing on point tonight Raptors-wise is #gameops.

Mike Ganter

On a positive note, JJ is still hot. He's 1-for-1. Everyone else still searching.

Eric Koreen

The Warriors shot 35%, and the Raptors trail by 16. That takes some effort.

Ryan Wolstat

Kerr pre-game: "The key to us is how we defend, but we haven't been doing it well lately.” Think they figured it out, Steve.

Payal Doshi

Not a good look! RT @Diamond Leung: Drake's team went from 0 to 1 for 19.

Michael Grange

Where is @smithraps when I need to know if that was the ugliest 12 minutes of basketball played by the Raptors? I say yes.

Mike Ganter

The previous worst first quarter for Raps this season was 14 points done twice.

Ryan Wolstat

Warriors had Raptors well scouted. White board pre-game said they easily revert to 1-on-1 and said DeRozan “rarely passes."

Mike Ganter

Raps finish the quarter 1-for-19. I mean the Warriors are good defensively, but that's ridiculous. Raps down 27-11.

Michael Grange

That GV miss from three was easily the Raptors best look as their 1-of-19 first quarter comes to a close. Unbelievable.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors first-quarter shooting percentage: 5.3%. FIVE POINT THREE! Raps go 1-for-19, turn the ball over 6 times and trail Warriors by 16

Eric Koreen

Dubs up 27-11 after a quarter. Raps started missing open shots instead of contested ones at end of quarter, so that's progress!

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors make one field goal, ONE, in first quarter. Shoot 1-for-19, trail only 27-11. Has to be franchise-worst quarter.

Eric Koreen

The Raptors have one field goal. It was a contested James Johnson 16-footer.

Michael Grange

Raps a tidy of 1/15 here with a 1:30 left in the first .... about 14 of those shots have been contested.

Ryan Wolstat

Talk about a contrast, Raptors facing NBA’s best team tonight and its worst tomorrow in Knicks.

Payal Doshi

For the record most of the players on the team say their favourite hockey team is the @SanJoseSharks!

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry to the locker room.

Josh Lewenberg

Raps now shooting a whopping 7.1% (1-for-14). Lowry/DeRozan update: 0-for-11. Warriors lead is 17. Raps stuck on 5 pts w/ 2:39 left in 1st

Mike Ganter

Kyle just headed to the locker room with the doctors and some of the training staff in tow.

Josh Lewenberg

On white board in Warriors room pre-game: "Control DeRozan's catch-shoot game. He rarely passes" "Much of what they do reverts to 1 on 1"

Michael Grange

Seriously ... can someone with a PVR tell me how many passes before that Klay Thompson 3 please?

Michael Grange

DeMar's plan seems to be to dribble wildly into coverage and hope to get a call. He is not getting a call and is 0/6.

Ryan Wolstat

Nobody took out the trash.

Eric Koreen

DeRozan and Lowry are 0-for-9. The team is 1-for-12. At least three of DeRozan's misses have been in paint.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors start 1-for-12, DeRozan/Lowry 0-for-9. Warriors lead 14-5 just over 7 minutes in

Eric Koreen

#gameops plays Lou Williams montage to a song called 6 Man. Does anybody know who that song is by?

Ryan Wolstat

First playing of 6 Man at ACC I believe, but LouWill not in the game yet.

Tim Chisholm

The purple jerseys are cursed

Ryan Wolstat

New lineup, but bad start from Raptors against an angry Warriors team that got drilled by Cleveland last night. Dubs playing 4th in 5 nights

Josh Lewenberg

Although this lineup could work, early returns are not good, as expected. They've only played 24 mins together & first start comes vs GSW

Michael Grange

Raptors going out of their way to prove that this 'pass the ball thing' is NOT over-rated. Just dreadful basketball.

Payal Doshi

One of the cool things that happened today was hearing Alvin Gentry softly singing to words to “Oh Canada” as the @Golden State Warriors arrived.

Eric Koreen

Early stages: Raptors offence looks wretched.

Josh Lewenberg

Warriors first 8 points: 2 FTs, 3 open lay-ups (2 for Steph). Meanwhile, DeRozan/Lowry have started 0-for-4. Raps down 6 early

Eric Koreen

8-2 Warriors early. Lowry displeased with the officiating.

Ryan Wolstat

For two seasons, two bad ones, but two nonetheless, post-Bosh, Amir Johnson was Toronto’s best all-around player.

Ryan Wolstat

When healthy, Amir is Toronto’s best defender and screen setter by miles and miles and miles. But that’s a big caveat.

Eric Koreen

No Northern Touch for throwback intros tonight. Instead, Ante Up from M.O.P.

Ryan Wolstat

Unfortunately, Amir has too many miles on his body to be an effective starter. Can still play similar minutes off bench and last longer.

Ryan Wolstat

According to @Josh Lewenberg who hopefully isn’t lying, this new starting lineup has played 24 total minutes together for Raptors this yr.

Josh Lewenberg

This is the 9th different starting lineup Raps have used this season. They used 10 last year, tied for fewest in team history (82gm season)

Eric Koreen

Does anybody know if anybody advocated this lineup before the team switched to it? @Ryan Wolstat @Michael Grange @BlakeMurphyODC

Ryan Wolstat

Here is what I wrote just over a month ago about starting Patterson and James Johnson: blogs.canoe.ca/courtside/bask…

Josh Lewenberg

Tonights starters (Lowry/DeRozan/JJ/Pat/JV) have played 24mins together, outscoring opponents 58-31 for the Raps highest NetRtg (min 20mins)

Eric Koreen

The People's Lineup is now the Raptors' starting 5. What a world.

Josh Lewenberg

Patrick Patterson replaces Amir Johnson in tonight's starting lineup. Should help mitigate some of their spacing concerns, keep Amir fresh

Ryan Wolstat

Called for Patterson for Amir and Johnson for Ross or Vasquez long ago. Nice to see the Raptors finally trying it.

Michael Grange

Patrick Patterson gets the start over Amir Johnson tonight.

Eric Koreen

There ya go. RT @Toronto RaptorsMR: Patrick Patterson replaces Amir Johnson in the @raptors starting line up tonight vs. Golden State. #rtz

Eric Koreen

Read @cameronesposito's interview with her dad accepting her coming out. avclub.com/article/interv…

Eric Koreen

That's crappy news for Saunders, and good news for the organization. And so continues professional sports.

Eric Koreen

The reality is there's no lineup solution, although I'm guessing PP instead of Amir would help. Ross's struggles have been a killer.

Eric Koreen

Casey said certain teams help off James Johnson, some sag off Amir, some off JV. I say that means it's a problematic lineup.

Eric Smith

Pre game work in a building he's quite familiar with. @raptors #warriors #rtz instagram.com/p/zn336_o2-_/

Eric Koreen

No Iguodala for the Warriors tonight. He's healthy, just getting some rest because of a 4-in-5 stretch.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "I think it came out worse than what it really is. Kyle knows who he is. DeMar knows who he is. They're not trash, they know that"

Josh Lewenberg

Oddly, while Steph is averaging 28.5 points in Toronto (highest vs any team on the road), Klay averages 12.0 (lowest vs any team on road)

Josh Lewenberg

Raps bench has only been outscored 13 times in 57 gms, including 3 straight for 1st time this season (outscored 145-79 over that stretch)

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan and Lowry over 3-game losing streak: 31-97 (32%) FG, 3-25 (12%) 3P, 30 FTA, 23 assists/18 turnovers

Josh Lewenberg

We the Fourth? Maybe not. Raptors were tops in 4thQ pt differential last year (+195), they're 15th this season (-8), 29th since Jan 1 (-74)

Eric Koreen

I say this with the utmost respect, television watchers of America: You're all mouth-breathing idiots uproxx.com/tv/2015/02/no-…

DeMar DeRozan
