Surprised we are winning over Mavs and Bulls.

There's a little interview with Demar below... Funny to hear him say what we all suspected: "Casey lets us do whatever we want on offense, he only cares about D. If you play D, you can do whatever you want on the other side of the court."

As an opposing coach, how do you prepare for defending a bunch of players doing whatever they want? :)

I believe that only to an extent, he certainly draws up plays for them at key parts of the game

tbh, I voted for the mavs/bulls. It'll be the better game, and (get this), I'd rather have an option for which game I wanna watch (especially since the other is a conference rival) instead of redundant programming!

I could care less who wins the voting... obviously for us in Toronto we get the game no matter what. But being on NBA TV gives fans in other markets the chance to see us since we have no other exposure in the US market. Plus, Sacramento is a much better team than last year as well with Cousins stepping up so could be a good game to see for the national audience.

I am unsure if it will be a better game. Bulls are so banged up, you never know what you will get from them.

When does the poll end?

You also get a chance to enjoy a much better broadcast, and a more objective view of the team and the game than what you're getting from Devlin.

I found it alarming and it explains some of the bad shot selection. I guess I can't complain too much as they have the second best offense in the league right now.

With NBA TV they pick one of the teams broadcasts, NBA TV does not have their own broadcasters...so it will be either the Raps feed or Kings feed (I have American satellite so I get the American NBA TV and thats how they do it, I assume the Canadian NBA TV is the same).

Ah, I didn't realize that. I guess the only remaining benefit, then, is the exposure, although I don't know how many people have NBA TV in US... it tends to be in the higher-priced packages. Probably only the ones that already know Raptors well enough.

Well I have Dish Network so I went to check their site, NBA Tv is available in their middle end package...whereas TNT and ESPN is the basic package, so that why TNT and ESPN carry more prestige with national coverage...

The Raps have two ESPN games one on Dec 17th against Brooklyn and one on April 8th against Charlotte...no more TNT games.

Just worried about Cousins, none of our bigs can consistently guard him.

How's Mavs/Bulls better game? I am not trying to be a raptors homer, but raptors are playing some solid ball and Kings have been pretty good at home. Mavs are slumping and Bulls are banged up. I think raptors and kings will go toe to toe and will be a better game to watch.

I could see Hayes getting a lot of playing time potentially...
