The Raptors fall apart without Fred VanVleet. It is understandable why he plays 38 minutes per night. And still, it feels inevitable that at this rate, he is going to break down.

Marcus Smart said that he was proud of the way Josh Richardson and other helped him out guarding Fred VanVleet down the stretch.
Smart said “Especially J-Rich. He bailed me out after (VanVleet) cooked me a couple of times.” – 9:10 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
VanVleet said he’s fine with the officiating switching back to a tighter whistle, but the lack of communication both before and during the season has been disappointing. – 8:47 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
VanVleet on tonight’s foul/free throw disparity: “I promise if you write about it I will not be mad, but unless you have $25,000 to spare I’m gonna stay away from officiating comments other than to say it was a tough night for us on that end of the whistle.” pic.twitter.com/d341C0sW3f8:47 PM

VanVleet threw a perfect lob to Mykhailiuk at the rim and then Svi very much seemed to be like “What am I doing up here?” and he fumbled the ball. – 8:13 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Celtics have put the clamps on the Raptors, especially without Fred VanVleet on the court. When Boston defends like this, it can be a very good team. – 8:11 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Celtics up 10. The Raptors scored precisely one basket in the half court without VanVleet on the floor: Flynn’s desperation drive after a jump ball late in the clock. – 8:07 PM

Tatum should have just pulled his arm back. VanVleet wasn’t really trying to score there. That was about getting to the line. – 7:05 PM
