    Np, it's one of the best channels for basketball

    He's been calling out the Raptors for years because of their style of play. This is the first time he's optimistic.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Nice video.

    I always believed Demar could benefit a lot from off ball cuts but I didn't realize him and Kyle were that effective on it.

    Still around but don’t have much to say because I haven’t watched a game in almost a year. I hope that the team is putting the effort in to moving the ball more like I have been reading about. That’s great to hear and kudos to them for finally giving it a go. Casey didn’t appear to look like he would ever give up on iso ball. Also love that MU didn’t fill roster spots with vets forcing the young players into minutes. It’s how they’ll learn and get better and doesn’t have the massive negative effects that many said it would. Overall it sounds like the team is more enjoyable to watch now which is always a good thing

    They most certainly are. The young bench in specific comes into the game with a lot of energy, defense and movement. I still find the starters fall into their habits (as expected) from time to time, although it is noticeable they are giving an effort to move the ball with purpose more often.

    DeRozan hitting the 3 might be the biggest development of the season.

    Hopefully he can keep it going. He looks very comfortable shooting the three right now but we have seen him do this before and then tail off.

    With that said, if he can shoot the corner or elbow three as a spot up on the weak side, it will make them more difficult to guard.

    It's hard to choose between that and him passing the ball quickly and accurately out of double-teams... Both of those are making both him and the team so much better.

    Thats true i really noticed it yesterday. they were trying to send the length at him and he never panic'd. They did a great job of slowing Giannis down too as a team.

    Also we havnt seen Derozan shoot it from 3 like this ever. I think the only 3 he missed yesterday was a half court bomb. It is crazy to see.

    Fast forward to 7:03 and you can hear coach Nick giving DeMar some love. He's been one of his biggest critics and is a believer this year.

    I've heard his criticism over the years and it was nice to hear to some praise.

    Also another good channel to follow for NBA content.

    He did take an ill-advised 3 in the last minute, trying to set the record. It missed badly, and before you know it, Bucks almost got back into the game.

    But, considering the rest of the game, we can let that slide. They were up 7 with 45 seconds to go, or something like that.

    I'd be doing the same tbh. I definitely give him a pass on that.

    Paskal has been a disappointment imo from how he started the season.

    Maybe disappointment is too harsh but he started off so strong i thought he was going to have a better season. still lots of career left though.

    Derozan is most definitely going to be challenged to make that shot in the playoffs.
