#wetheforth Raptors 4th quarter defense shuts down Griz

Nah man, the atlantic division is wide open still, raptors arent legit, beating memphis was a fluke obviously.

11-19-2014, 11:06 PM
As much as I like the Raptors, I have to say that they had no business winning this game. They got lucky. Going forward they really need to improve on their interior defense and especially rebounding. It's going to be hard to win games when you get out rebounded by 15 boards.

What saved The Raps was that Ross went off in the 4th quarter with 14 of his 16 points coming in the 4th. They can't expect that to happen going forward. Gasol, Randolph and Conley had excellent games. Not having Tony Allen was a huge blow for the Grizzlies I think he could have stopped Ross in the 4th.

Lowry played well as always.

But a wins a win. They're 9-2. Hopefully they improve as the season progresses.

THat's not true, if Ross played consistently from the start, he wouldnt have needed to be hot in the 4th quarter, he could've just had an average game throught all the rest o the quarters. The raptors in the end did play defense for this game, they very much deserve to win. you can say what you want about excuses, the raptors are missing their team's best defender right now as well.

I think the refs did everything to help Memphis win this game and that Memphis was hitting ridiculous shots. If Raps can win in this scenario that tells me they are deep. No Allen and no JJ who is our best defender off the bench.

True but Raps seem outplay every team in the 4th thus far. Playing Chuck Hayes on big slow guys seemed to mess with the front court of the Griz. He's immovable and quicker than the two of the Griz. Smart move by Casey. He actually used him when he is needed. I hate it when they play Hayes on agile big men be he can't guard them if they have the jump shot.

I thought JVal played decent throughout the game. We were close with him in the game. Then we tried going Hansbrough/Patterson/Amir and we were down 10 at times and that's when ZBo and Gasol's started smashing the glass. Amir came up big on the offensive board somehow in the 2nd half.

When Ross starts hitting shots, with Derozan and Lowry doing their thing, Raps are hard to beat. That's why Ross is the X factor every game. An engaged Ross brings good defense and spreads the floor for Derozan and Lowry.

Griz simply didn't have enough at the end though their big three played. It was tough to beat the Grizz even if they had 5 guys missing. No excuses in the NBA, especially when their 3 best players played as well.

This is disgraceful. I don't care that they're playing without Dwight and Jones. You have a big lead in the fourth quarter at home and you just choked it away. They couldn't buy a defensive rebound to save their lives, they couldn't get a stop down the stretch and they couldn't get a single clean look on offense.

I'm ashamed to be a Rockets fan after that one. ****ing pathetic.

Dude. He has a right to be upset. It's a crappy loss. I'm pissed too but i'm not going to rant about it because I expected it when we started playing iso ball with 4 mins to go.

I understand you get excited when we "drop from 2nd to 5th" but some ppl here love sports that much. Don't kick him while he's down.

I don't care if he's upset, that's perfectly natural. What's pathetic is trying to curtail others for gloating the win. If he can't handle that, grow up and sign out. That's my point.

(From the Embrace the Hate thread that got moved to the Rockets forum)


They haven't been the same since they came back from Mexico City. Whether that's because of the travel there and back or because the Rockets are just falling off or whatever, I don't know. Heck, I wouldn't be 100% surprised if they got beat by the Lakers tonight.

And this was before I found out Dwight was a last minute scratch. The Rockets need a quality backup C/PF. What happens in the playoffs again against, well, basically any team? They need to be in win now mode and go all in.

I have to give it up to the Lakers for the back-to-back win. They took care of business.

I can't believe Houston lost to the swiss cheese defense the Lakers have.

Dude. He has a right to be upset. It's a crappy loss. I'm pissed too but i'm not going to rant about it because I expected it when we started playing iso ball with 4 mins to go.

I understand you get excited when we "drop from 2nd to 5th" but some ppl here love sports that much. Don't kick him while he's down.

.

I don't care if he's upset, that's perfectly natural. What's pathetic is trying to curtail others for gloating the win. If he can't handle that, grow up and sign out. That's my point.

Which, it seems he did. So it's done.

Good point.

It's hardly "pathetic." I just think it's ****** to gloat after a team had a bad loss. Be the better man, say "good game" and move on. Having standards for how I treat other fan bases hardly make me pathetic. What's pathetic is talking **** about someone an hour after they logged off and aren't online to respond. Kind of like what you did... :shrug:
