    Poncier said: It hasn't been pretty most night this season. Still looks like he is working his way back from the injury, Shows the occasional flash of his former self, but nothing consistent yet.
    We don't need no Hayward. We have the more experienced Korver. Get back Boozer and we're set. :smiley:
    Boozer is definitely not the answer...

    Neither is Korver.

    Boston tops Toronto and GS with their usual 3rd quarter blitzkrieg overtakes the Pelicans...

    Ever notice how the Warriors consistently kill in the 3rd quarter?  Seriously.  It's uncanny.

    I haven't been following the NBA much this season.  I mean, I follow my Pacers, check their scores and highlights, but I haven't been paying attention to the rest of the league.  Obviously I know about Harden's run because it's all over social media and TV, but I don't know much else that's going on.  It seems that Indiana is playing well, but can't beat any of the big dogs.  That's assuming the Celtics, Raptors, Bucks, & 76ers are the big dogs in the East, anyway? I haven't even checked the standings.  :i_dunno:

    Agreed.  There was a ref that wasn't calling that crap so I thought that he chilled w all that.

    His style of play is atrocious to watch with all his flopping and travelling. He's just taking advantage at the terrible application of any rules by the refs, but it needs to be stopped. 
    He's a great player, but his current run is helped by the fact that his usage rate is through the roof and C Paul is out. I'll never rate Harden as one of the top 3 players until he can do something significant on the playoffs. Too many times in the last few years has he come up short in big games/moments
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me

    When he got stuffed by Ginobili I was shocked.  

    He still needs to make up for that...

    He is absolutely killing it right now though.

    So we are abit more than half way through the season and I have to ask?  where is the love for the raptors.  ties with most road wins with GS and ties with the bucks for most home wins.  they have already played more games than the rest of the NBA.  already did the west conference tour and beat GS twice.

    Keep hearing about boston who are below 500 on the road and to be honest have not even played a tough schedule so far.

    Yes I am a raptors fan

    Kawhi is good up there but the story doesn't sell.  That is why you hear "Boston, blah blah blah Boston".

    They should be in the Conference finals this year.  No more first round outs and no more Lebron the Raptor slayer to face.

    Just another point, Leonard has missed so far 13 games this season, Lowery has missed 11 games, Jv has missed 19 games.  the Raptors have not really even played with their full team for a long time.  but I agree being in Canada doesn't sell down south.  should be an interesting playoff.

    They have been good and Pascal Siakam will be in running for most improved award. I have never been a huge fan of Lowry, he goes missing in playoffs too often, but they should give it a very serious nudge this year. They'll have too as I still don't see Leonard staying there next year

    Victor Oladipo’s knee cap moved to a spot that knee caps should never go. Not good.  Had to be stretchered off the court. 

    Pacers season is in jeopardy.

    harden is 5 of 20 from 3

    22 of 25 free throws

    not seeing any generational greatness here. more of a “compiler”

    So here is the deal with Toronto.  It's a GREAT basketball town.  You think DeRozan wanted to leave?!?
    The city embraces their team.  Drake is a YUGE supporter of the Raptors and one of the biggest stars on the planet so they have that going for them.

    If they do well in the playoffs, which I think they do, Kawhi will stay.  I don't see him playing with Lebron...
