    The raptors closed quarters in an absolute terrible fashion. So many forced shots early in the shot clock leading to Chicago taking and making 3's to cut the lead down in quarters 2 & 3.

    Well I don't expect a win here. I expect a tired Raptors team to come out and show up for a couple of quarters and subsequently lose in the 4th.

    There is a disconnect between the players and the coach most definitely. Nobody knows what is going on out there on the floor.

    The thing is that even if you win a round because you matchup well doesn't mean you're going to win the championship. So you can win a series, then lose and then you'll know what exactly you need to...

    The internal goal is to make a playoff run so naturally that is what they will be judged off of. If the team was going to be judged off of the regular season we wouldn't see such a lacklustre effort...

    Casey not knowing what side the ball was on for the last play is equally as bad, lol.

    I wish the raps would run their offensive set at the end of a quarter instead of going ISO. Derozan has been the guy and instead we ISO for Lou. No timeout either, I don't get it man. Casey doesn't...

    The Problem is the Defence

    Not really, the playoffs expose the weaknesses and highlight the strengths of any basketball team. The Raps will be judged against the best teams with heightened expectations.

    The playoff run is going to determine the future direction of this team for better or for worse.

    Sooner or later Masai is going to come under pressure to make something happen. this off-season he will have a lot of money to work with. Casey is on contract for another year with an option for the...

    Yeah its true, Casey is fighting human nature, hard to get your team to get up for games when they already have a top 4 seed pretty much locked up. I hope they can flip a switch but we'll have to...

    It's true, the hype has kind of subsided. I think it would take a playoff round win to get that hype back up again. Expectations have risen.

    Agreed, if anything a team coasts in the beginning of the season then ramps it up going into the playoffs like the Spurs or Cleveland. The Raps haven't done anything in this league so I don't know...

    I think there's a bit of that too. Complacency has set in because they've beaten every team in the conference except Chicago and Charlotte so I think they feel they've proven to themselves that they...

    Yeah I heard that too. If how they execute during the season is what is to be expected in the playoffs the new sets won't matter.

    I'm of the opinion that you try to get the highest seed possible so that you can have home court. The Raptors' real advantage in the playoffs is our home court and wild fans that rival college...

    Well at least the raps won. They looked like they ran a balanced offensive attack for the most part. JV got fed and Derozan and other teammates looked for him actively. Defense was pretty good too....

    The off-ball movement is terrible. A lot of standing around along the perimeter leading to terrible shots. There is a lack of focus or a lack of BBall IQ. I think Casey has given his players too...

    you could look at their games played(GP) and just subtract their GP from actual # of games played. you'll get a rough estimate but it will be close enough.

    Raps are the worst defensive team in the playoffs in the east & that does not bode well for playoff success. the problem is that the system does not fit the personnel. Amir has dropped off a cliff,...

    Agreed. In hindsight this year should have been the year where Valanciunas gets more of a larger role on offence to balance out the scoring punch but instead he's kind of relegated to being a...

    I listen to Tim & Sid and TSN 1050 a lot and Masai frequents those radio stations once a month so it seems. I remember him stating that the team was not as good as they played earlier in the year and...

    Hey man! Glad to be back, have more time right now so I can start to engage more in these forums.

    Yeah exactly. I personally don't think they're good enough to just turn it on and execute when it matters in the playoffs but they seem to think so.

    & yes they need to incorporate JV some how...
