Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Man I agree with having Fields come off the bench, but I don't think A.A. can do that every night.

And finally Bargs gets benched in the 4th. What a beautiful sight. Casey finally not doing the double pg line up in the 4th along with benching Bargs and look what happens.

I really hope DD keeps up this play.

And JV first 4 games in the NBA my god, has any other C had tougher matchups lol.

B.C. has to to start looking to trade bargs for a everyday starting SF. This would allow Ed Davis more minutes and I think he can very easily be a double double PF. And an upgrade to our SF spot right now is much needed.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Once Kleiza comes back I think he will get a shot at that SF spot also. I really think we should've kept James Johnson.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

I do think Kleiza will get a shot at the starting gig when he returns from his family problems (not quite sure what is going on, I know he had a baby recently so I'm really hoping it has nothing to do with that). It's been confirmed that he won't be playing in tonights game by the way.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Man I really hope Klieza can show that style of play he showed with Lith just before he came to the Raps. He looked so good. Still think we can do better though.

I really hope we can steal one tonight. And hopefully Bargs returns to the flashes he showed last year. And DD and Lowry need to keep clicking, these 2 are making the raps fun to watch again

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

I'm going out on a whim and saying Fields has his best Raptors game tonight, even if he is going to be matched up against Kevin Durant. I hope to see some more Dom McGuire if my prediction is wrong.

Raps win this by 5. OKC then gets a ton of bad press and starts to turn the corner.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Well hopefully Fields just plays quality D tonight, thats all I want out of him.

This is going to be a tough matchup for Lowry, really hope he beats up on Westbrook. I say DD is going to go off again tonight, and hopefully Bargs gets out this brutal slump.

If Lowry, DD and Bargs all play great tonight I think we can steal one here.

Also curious to see how brutal the refs are on JV tonight.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

I'll say the Raptors lose by at least 15 points tonight. It will be a hard game to watch for Raptors fans.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

We've got a lot of 'ifs' going on here ... but I'm still high on the team with what I've seen so far.
Keys to a win ...
1. Bargs has to get involved early and often. And mix up his offence!! No more parking on the perimeter waiting to make an easy three ... or even worse, putting his head down and attacking without looking.
2. Fields ... has to prove that he's actually worth something.. On offence OR defense ... gimme anything please !!!
3. Calderon ... Keep the second line focused and take charge of them. We really don't have much offensive power on that line.

And for gravy, Davis, JV, Johnson, Anderson ... keep it up and continue to improve on past performances...
Lowry and DD ... just keep doing what'cha been doing ;-)

Raps by 5 !!

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Well so much for my prediction .... Is there a large pile of sand I could bury my head in??
Sad, sad, sad .... I don't want to spoil it. But save yourself some grief and heartache and watch the election race instead. At least there's some competition going on there.
Ohhh also don't want to say who left the game injured and isn't coming back tonight... No point anyways. Hopefully he can bounce back for us tomorrow night :-(

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Bad
Lowry leaving the game injured. Ouch.
20 point loss to a team that owns our pick. Ouch. (What a bright future that OKC fanbase has to look forward too)
Landry Fields, $20 million contract? Twenty million ouches.

Good
Terrence Ross starting to show up, still looks slightly awkward but this will give him bags of confidence.
Jonas Valanciunas with a 18/6 against one of the best defensive frontcourts in the league~ (6/8 FG good %, 6/6 FT). He did get abused a couple of times on D, but he is staying out of foul trouble. That KD dunk on him was nasty.

Overall
The disparity was clearly visible. Aside from just having Durant, they have a much higher b-ball IQ as a team. When a player drives the hoops and the D is sucked in, they pass it back out for the open man, if the D doesn't sink, they have the talent to make the play. Then you look at our Raptors, when Bargs, or Lucas drives it’s not going to be passed back out regardless of what the opposition does. Not to mention while we went 7-30 from 3pt land, their ability to just stop, pull up a 3 and knock it down with ease is something I fear I will eternally envy.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Here is that KD throwdown for anyone that missed it.



And on the flip side, some Valanciunas highlights from the game

Perkins face is a picture after this move.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Onwards and upwards as they say; Wed 7 @ Dallas American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX 8:30 PM

Obviously the big news is whether Lowry will suit up or not, I doubt he does, he looked like he twisted it pretty bad.

Kyle Lowry will be listed as doubtful for Wed. game at Dallas. Sustained a sprained right ankle Tues. in OKC. #Raptors

RaptorsPR ‏@RaptorsPR

#Raptors training staff performed additional treatment on Lowry's ankle at team hotel in Dallas. Will reassess again in the morning.
