Casey also announced JV will be playing tonight, off the bench. Go Raps Go!!

Gay apparently will be coming off the bench as well.

I won't spoil it for those who typically watch it late .... But overall it was a decent game. Good effort from our boys. We'll discuss tomorrow after you two have watched it.

Ohhhhh man. DD and Gay looked deadly together out there. The Raptors may actually be fun to watch again.

Best thing about Gay coming in? Less Alan Anderson!!

Apparently JL3 is a sniper....

Where the fack did that defense come from?

Amir for MVP!!

JV looked solid defensively, kinda rusty still.

Aaron Gray? OFFER HIM THE MAX lol. Seriously though he is more valuable than Bargnani.

BC please take ANYTHING for Bargs, we are way better without him. And he will just take shots away from Amir/Gay/DD.

DeMar/Gay/Ross in high flying mode. What a terrific game. Anybody that had doubts about acquiring Gay should have went to bed will a mouth full of crow last night. JL3 finding his shot could be massive for this team.

The Clippers do look a little lost without CP3 running the show.

I'm super excited for the game against the Heat. JV being back getting minutes is the icing on the cake.

Ya I can't wait to see the game against the Heat. Did you guys here the Rudy interview saying that DD is the best 2 guard he has ever played with.....When I heard him say that, I was the happiest I have ever been with the Raptors since the prime VC days.

We went from having the most embarrassing SF rotation in the league to having Gay. There is hope. But I'm holding off on going full on crazy until I see more of Rudy and DD.

Rudy on DeMar DeRozan: "He's by far the best two-guard I've ever played with"...

Yeah I caught that, great chemistry is underrated as a massive factor in building a deep playoff team.

I can't wait for next season.

I ate an appetizer plate of crow last night regarding Gay. It was a great game definitely, but in games where those shots aren't falling for Gay, I'm sure we'll cuss him out.

lol, obviously. I'm a bi-polar Raptors fan, but I think Gay will have a longer leash until I start going crazy on him.

I wasn't crazy about the trade to say the least. I thought it a heavy price for him. But I also didn't know anything about him so was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt since I don't know much beyond my home team and look to the board here for signs and direction. Anyways, great, great start for him. Fantastic asset!! I'm now convinced we've filled a desperate hole in a gametime finisher. Now we're suddenly stong and competitive at the 1, 2 & 3 with servicable and emerging talent at the 5 and decent enough options at the 4. Backups galore and trading pieces we could play with!! Overall .... It's a very exciting new chapter for us! Hey glad to see the hometown fans accept him at the acc like that. Makes us all proud and look good when a new talent is immediately supported like that.

Still don't like JL3 though. He's a damnable chucker that I'd love to see go. It's great when they go in, but that just encourages him to keep taking shots when he shouldn't. He was lights out in the preseason then went half cold chucking up shots way too early in the clock. Last night's performance though exceptional will give us three games of ugliness from him for sure :-( :-(
