“I was just trying to make it as difficult as possible, give him a different look, try to be a pest out there,” the 6-foot-7 Fields said following practice at Barclays Center on Thursday. Johnson didn’t give him much credit, saying Fields was “nothing more than a fresh body.” Johnson said the Nets watched film of what Toronto did to him and promised “we’ll clean it up for Game 3.” New York Post

I haven't seen anything about Landry Fields and his off-season activities. In my view, Landry is a key rotational piece if the team is going to step up however he has to be able to drop shots to be effective. Have you heard anything specific about whether Landry is just chilling or doing any targeted development? Ray, Huntsville Doug Smith: Yeah, have heard lots. He’s rehabbing his arm/elbow regenerates itself slowly, he’s working on restructuring his shot with members of the team’s coaching and training staff. Run of the mill summer stuff, same stuff he was doing at the end of last season. And I think we need to make this clear: Players “chill” for maybe a month and then everyone of them starts working on all aspects of their game and their conditioning. That’s across the board.

Ross could not crack the Raptors’ small lineup down the stretch, with DeMar DeRozan, Landry Fields and Alan Anderson each playing ahead of him. Valanciunas played a few fourth-quarter minutes with Amir Johnson in foul trouble, but came out in the final stretch. Kyle Lowry’s four final-minute points won the game for the Raptors. “I had to get Jonas out at the end, bless his heart,” Casey said. He said, ‘Coach, [Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson] is coming really fast.’ I said, ‘Guess what: All of them are coming fast.’ … Everything is so fast for rookies. I don’t care who you are, what level of rookie you are: It is a learning experience. National Post

Landry Fields of the Raptors is having a better time off the court than on it. After leaving the Knicks for the Raptors in the offseason, Fields is struggling north of the border – granted he’s been injured – he’s only shooting 11 percent on 3-pointers after making 39 percent as a rookie. On the plus side, he just got engaged to model Elaine Alden, and the Stanford grad was pretty creative about it. The Big Lead

Landry Fields had a season-high 18 points and 10 rebounds as the Toronto Raptors sent the Los Angeles Lakers to their fifth straight road loss, 108-103 on Sunday. Kobe Bryant scored 26 points and Pau Gasol had 25 for the Lakers, whose road skid is their longest in six years. Dwight Howard was ejected after drawing his second technical foul with 1:18 left in the first half. USA Today Sports

It all stemmed from a play with 15.6 seconds left and the Raptors with the ball, up 16. It certainly would appear to be a time when Toronto would hold the ball and run out the clock. Instead, guard Jose Calderon threw an alley-oop pass to Landry Fields, who threw down a dunk. Sixers coach Doug Collins stared down at the Raptors' bench, where, when the game ended, coach Dwane Casey waved at Collins. The Sixers coach didn't respond and a couple of minutes later, as the Sixers approached their locker room, words were exchanged. In the Raptors' locker room, both Calderon and Casey said they wanted to apologize, saying they didn't know how much time was left. Perhaps the fire that Collins' players showed after the late-game incident will carry over to the next game, which is Saturday at home against Houston. Right now, they need to look anywhere and everywhere for some answers. Philadelphia Inquirer

Starting small forward Landry Fields likely will be out the longest, but even his diagnosis brought some relief. Fields had ulnar nerve transposition surgery Wednesday in New York City to address compression/entrapment in his right elbow. Fields will be reassessed in two weeks, and could be out for a while. Still, the team was relieved that there was a medical explanation for the pricey free agent signing’s troubling play early on. Fields was averaging just 2.4 points and 3.2 rebounds and shooting 20.8% from the field, including 0-for-6 from three in his five starts. Toronto Sun

In Landry Fields, the Raptors may have found someone who could be that Garbajosa-like player. The ‘glue guy’ term is one Fields, even in his rookie year was hearing. And he has his own definition of that kind of player. “I hear the term a lot,” Fields said Thursday. “A glue guy is kind of unheralded at times. It’s a guy every team needs who doesn’t necessarily show up in the statistics box with superstar stats but even when they don’t they are still effective on the court, whether that’s making right cuts so somebody else is open or running the floor, so he draws another person’s man and that person is open. It’s the guy who does the little things to help teams win. Every team has to have a guy like that.” Toronto Sun
