Wheels up.. ✈️
Vasquez on Ross: "Even though I'm in the starting lineup, I want to see him get back in the starting lineup and do what he do"
Most of the first quarter was ugly but a much more complete outing than we've seen from the Raps in a while. They've got Sacto at home tmrw
With tonight's win the Raptors reach 30 victories on the season, the most they've ever recorded before the All-Star break.
Second straight quality/efficient outing for DeRozan. He's attempted 23 free throws over the past 2 games. Looking to be in pre-injury form
Raptors have 30 wins already. As many or more than they've had in eight of their previous 19 seasons.
If you ever have a chance and wait to visit one of the best arenas in the nba, plan a road trip to Indy. The field house is fantastic
Ross has had some moments offensively tonight, but getting throttled on D at every turn.
Q1=Flat start. Bench did it in q2. Starters (notably dd & Lowry) did it in q3. Best we've seen @raptors look in a while. TOR up 9; q4 next
After allowing Indy to shoot 50% in a 28pt 1stQ, Raptors have held them to 40 points on 40% shooting since. Raps by 9 into 4th
Raps up 77-68 after three. The lead got as big as 16. Lowry has 19. DeRozan has 17.
Raps pulling away but coaching staff is upset with something the Pacers are doing. First Casey and then Bayno confronting the officials.
Pacers led 28-21 after 1Q, Raptors have outscored them 52-29 (+23) since. They lead by 16, their largest, with 2:42 left in the 3rd
That concludes my FINAL explanation for the most-asked question on my timeline: "Where's JJ?"
Agree or disagree with the rationale, that's the reality. And, for the conspiracy theorists, there's nothing more to it that I'm aware of
Lines of communication have been open & JJ has been a pro about limited PT. Its not permanent. He'll be back when rotation returns to normal
While JJ has bought into his role, been pleasant surprise this year, still holes in his game. Limited range, gambles too much on D
Raptors asst. coach Tom Sterner's half time interviews are the universe trying make up for Gregg Popovich.
Even if you believe JJ has been better than Ross on season, Ross more important long-term. Casey is committed to getting him going again
Will address James Johnson situation 1 last time. Rotation shortened w/ 2 PGs in starting lineup, not enough PT for both he & Ross off bench
Raps lead by 6 at the half. Bench is responsible for 27 of their 50 points. DeRozan (12) and Lowry (9) have 21 of the staters' 23 pts
Raps up 50-44. They had a 20-0 run in the quarter. DeMar has 12. Ross and Lowry have nine.
Raps bench scored a season-best 64 pts in last meeting w/ Indy. They have 27 of the team's 43. 3 starters (JV/Amir/GV) are still scoreless
Indy crowd is deathly quiet.
Casey was praising Ross' play of late before the game. He's been very good again tonight. DC reiterated move to bench is not permanent
20-0 Raptors run (11 from the FT line). Pacers haven't scored in over 11 minutes.
Raptors have answered Indy's 12-0 run with a 12-0 spurt of their own. Their last 7 points have come from the line, 5 for Lou
Only three Raptors (DeRozan, Lowry, Patterson) scored in the 1st Q. They were a combined 8-for-16, everyone else was 0-for-5
Only three Raptors - DeRozan, Lowry and PPat - scored in that first quarter.
After fighting back and taking a brief lead, Raps give up 8 quick, unanswered Pacer pts to end the Q, trail by 7 going into 2nd
Snail-like start for the Raptors but they had picked it up until those last two possessions. Head to the second quarter down 28-21.
Patterson tripple caps off a 15-5 Raptors run and gives Toronto its first lead at 21-20. Raps getting it together after rough start
Raptors first non-Lowry FG comes nearly 8 minutes into the game as DeRozan hits a floater. Lowry 2-for-4, others: 1-for-9. Raps down 7
Another ugly start. Raps have missed their first 4 shots, turning the ball over twice. They're scoreless, down 9-0 3:16 in. Timeout Casey
In short: Divisions are dumb.
So, if they have worse record than ATL, WASH, CLE, CHI, they would start on the road.
Also: Winning Atlantic guarantees Raps top-4 seed. But, they'd start on road in 4-5 matchup if four other teams have better record.
A lot could, and I think it's the right thing to do. But starting first round in CLE might change some minds.
However, if they ride with him and Raps struggle, finishing with East's fifth-best record, could fans live w/ that?
It is hard to argue JV is currently a plus when he's on floor. But they need him to be, and living with mistakes now MIGHT expedite.
No, the podcast is not on iTunes yet. Yes, it's being worked on. Yes, we are hopeful it will be soon. Yes, I thank you for the inquiries.
Casey is hopeful that DeRozan will get in but understands he's a long shot, given # of games lost to injury. He still campaigned for him tho
Casey: "Winning's important... I think that to me is (important) as a coach and I think every coach I've talked to is voting that way"
Coaches voted for All-Star reserves today (TBA Thurs). Casey said he used his ballot to reward winning/playing the game "the right way"
I predict if one of the four Hawks doesn't make the ASG, it'll be Millsap. Just isn't major coaching focal point vs. ATL. Is that crazy?
Thinking of a cool tweet.
Romeo me alegro la mañana!! Que Clase de cantante..
Where can I get a good juicer in Toronto?
We know there are some sound issues at the end. Like the Raptors, perfecting the podcast is a process.
Good morning world.
