Vitamin C is good for you. I'm sorry.
The Bucks make defence fun.
No joke, some members of media considering eating at a place called Wale.
The Bucks are, like, 93% arms.
Twitter-sourcing: Should I go for a nap or go for a run? Both will make me feel terrible, but in totally different ways.
Free evening tonight. Thinking of going to Falls Church and searching for the Jennings' house.
Casey on Otto Porter: "He's really improved. From when he played at the beginning of the year to now, he's a different person"
Unlikely Raptors destination in the short-term http://t.co/LO0FRdUZzP
Amir on no pressure now: "We've got nothing else to lose … We have to get it by any means, or else it's curtains."
Asked DeRozan if he could go back would he have not responded 2 Pierce: "Nah Nah. It’s part of the game Why not? Nothing would have changed”
DeRozan said he got 2 hours of sleep last night. Amir said he had some chicken wings, milk & cookies, which put him "right out" (actually)
That is a totally sane response, by the way.
DeRozan has no regrets of responding to Pierce: "Nah. It’s part of the game. Why not? Nothing would have changed.”
Raptors scrap shootaround for Game 4.
Casey: "For us, it’s do or die.... And die doesn’t mean we’re going to die, die means the series is over"
Interlopers from Toronto wonder what these coloured things are outside Raptors practice gym http://t.co/Vr7dOTiAt8
Sweep could be best thing for long-term state of franchise, but I think Masai knew what he had w/ this group regardless. Changes were coming
Many will disagree & we'll never know for sure but despite how bad the Raps have looked, I still think they'd have won a best-of-7 vs Bucks
What might have been if Jae Crowder had missed that shot in Boston, 2nd last game of the season? Raps wouldve won, finished 3rd, faced Bucks
Raptors become the first team with home-court advantage to go down 0-3 in the opening round since it was expanded to best-of-7 in 2003
Happy birthday to Tim Duncan, THA GAWD.
Stray thoughts from last night's game coming a bit later.
“It was he was either going to finish with 30 or finish with 75.” Drew Gooden on DeMar DeRozan
"We're struggling. We're not hitting shots and that's costing us the series.” - Greivis Vasquez. Toronto ranked No. 3 in offensive rating
Amir: “They hit some tough shots and now we're down 3-0 got our backs against the wall. Now it's just win or go home."
The Truth on Wiz struggles during season: "Young guys ... they like to have good times on the road, they go out, they party sometimes"
The Truth on why Wiz struggled during season: "Young guys ... they like have good times on the road, they go out, they party sometimes"
DeRozan on history of 0-3 teams: "I really don’t care. Records are always meant to be be broken. If we feed into it, we've already lost.”
DeMar on tech for shoving Otto: “I just dont like nobody talking trash to me. I dont say nothing to nobody. They shouldnt say nothing to me”
What changed for DeRozan after the 1stQ? “Nothing. I just missed shots. They didn’t do nothing at all. Every shot I took felt good"
Lowry was barely audible post-game. Has been battling illness & has no voice. Refused to use it as an excuse, said it didnt affect his play
Casey: "I thought Kyle played his heart out"
Casey: "It's not over. We're on life support, but it's not over"
DeRozan said he knows that no NBA team has ever come back from 3-0. 'Records are made to be broken' (paraphrase)
"This was by far the toughest game we played... I'm seeing some of these guys in (my) sleep." Wittman
"Thats why we brought him here." - Randy Wittman on Paul Pierce. "He can still play."
'Topes lose 106-99. Down 3-0.
Pierce talked the talk and has certainly walked the walk.
Lowry pulls TOR Within 4. Pierce nails 2/2 ft. Wiz up 6. Lowry hits 3pt. Wiz up 3. Pierce nails 3pt as shot clock expires. :16.3 wiz up 6
NOW Pierce hits the REAL dagger, points to himself and yells to the crowd: "That's why I came here." Game (series) over.
The Truth is, Paul Pierce has “it.” Who else. Sports.
Fans boo as Drake exits through the tunnel. Somebody threw a t-shirt
Terrence Ross with just an insane foul.
Guys, Bruno hasn't even come into his prime yet. Calm down.
110 teams have gone down 0-3 in a best-of-seven playoff series (prior to this season). NONE of them have come back to win.
100-92 wiz with 1:12 to play.
Hate to say it, but have to think Dwane Casey’s days are numbered, barring historical comeback.
Looking like a sweep, how u?
Otto Porter, man.
Fans loud as DD at line. Not might-win-Chick-fil-A loud, but pretty loud.
3:02 to go, wiz up 4
Terrence Ross has had a better series than he did last year, which is to say no one could have a worse series than he did last year
I'm back in on Terrence Ross!
Wiz up 1 now. 5:14
Lowry & Wall exchange a couple words.
I officially don't understand that Review ....
Complicated call here. Gortat didn't get shot off before shot clock, but likely was fouled beforehand.
