    Good win! Fred was fantastic and Siakam was good as well. He missed a lot of easy baskets too.

    Freddy and Siakam both put up 34 but can both of them do that on a night in night out basis consistently?

    Will they average 34 a game ? No one expects them to.

    It's not about being salty at all...but at the same time or even trolling but rather asking a serious question because in order to stand any chance in the Conference, they are gonna have to put on these kind of performances night in night out

    They are off to a good start. We obviously expect to take a step back, but the team is still competitive and we like watching the progression of our young promising players that are developing in to special ones. Stayed tuned, itís enjoyable to watch

    Masai is on a roll with non drafted and or players that were drafted late in the 2nd round, the opportunity these guys get with the 905 in the gleague has proved to be a place of opportunity and a program that is grooming these guys in to real nba players. Itís one of the best things going in raptors basketball these days. Our gm doesnít rely on tanking this team is going to be competitive for some time. Currently only behind Warriors for most consecutive 50+ win seasons. Thereís a lot to be excited about in raptorland

    I'll give ya'll credit Masai for a GM he actually knows what he's doing as far as drafting undrafted players or 2nd rounders and then using the G League to develop said players...I'll give credit it is genius but at the same time ya'll did lose Kawhi and Danny but Siakam-Lowry-VanVleet so far for a trio they look good so far but we will see how long that lasts

    That's not really "the trio". Most of the roster are basically fillers and low risk gambles that gives Masai flexibility to find opportunities.

    Next game it may be Powell dropping 30 or Ibaka going for a big number. Thatís the beauty of this team. They are a fun bunch and they simply find ways to win.

    And of course Gasol and Serge will be chipping in a lot more too.

    You recognize how a statement like this is a ludicrous combination of hindsight bias and single variable analysis right? It is about the logical equivalent of me saying, "man NO is in deep trouble. They can't even beat an Eastern Conference team without Ball/Melli/Reddick combining to go for 10-14 from 3. They need to at least go 12-15 combined each game to stay afloat until Zion comes."

    Edit: I'll add a "tonight version" of absurd statements: "Kyrie has 25 points at half and Nets are down 15 to the lottery bound Timberwolves. He must score at least 30 a half for the Nets to make the playoffs in the East."

    Was at the game. Great game. For some reason, the TV didn't capture the crowd reactions that much during the ceremony and game because it was really loud in there.

    Chemistry and coaching will get us 50 plus in a weak conference.

    I think Siakim is capable of another leap. OG can take a leap. If we can find a way to find another wing scorer, we can push the 2nd round to 6-7 games. Devner is deep as **** and have too many guys on the perimeter, maybe we ask them about some guys Beasley is intriguing. Barton can score but has a long contract which might hinder '21.

    Juancho and MPJ didn't even see mins yesterday and those guys can be rotational players.
