Raps have never been this low during this season.  Bucks have never been this high.

I smell a blood bath beating. I will be wearing my Raptors rain hoodie.

I think those sound completely different. I'm rather indeferent towards the Bucks except that the narrative about them and "importance" of this game is terribly annoying. I'd like to enjoy some good basketball, Bucks or not, but the talk about it will make that difficult. I wish there was a neutral feed for tonight. Our feed will be tense, Bucks feed will be annoying, misinformed and arrogant.  And the post game coverage and writings will be even more loaded. Maybe if T-Rex bites off Bambi's head, maybe the silence will allow the fun to thrive. But if Bucks win, boy oh boy will it supercharge the hot takes, judgments and shallow narratives. So again.. Meh. Bucks.

Yep, no Lowry. I'm expecting another road loss and probably not a close one.

We've been blown out badly 4-5 times already this season. That rarely happened under Casey. But this team some nights is unwatchable.

Kyle Lowry is working up a sweat against some Raptors staffers with Alex McKechnie watching before Raptors shootaround this morning.

He remains doubtful for tonight's game. He was saying in locker room on Thursday that it's about going through a workout and feeling good the next day.

He's listed as doubtful so I don't think he'll be playing. But I guess anything is possible

I think only suffered 3 blowouts, all in the past week and a half (Philly, Orlando, SAS). Pretty sure we have some blowouts last year too.

I think it's the frequency of these 3 that are colouring your perception:)

I bet that if we win the next two games, everybody will go back to singing praises ...

First game vs Milwaukee was a blowout
Orlando was a blowout
Philadelphia was a blowout
SAS was a blowout
Pelicans beat us by 16 at home


That's 5 and we're not halfway through the schedule yet. I don't think we were blown out 5 games all of last season.

Milwaukee and pelicans wasn't a blowout, at least not the way I'd define it. We got close in both games late in the 2nd half and the difference didn't even get to 20 in the pelicans game I think.

Last season we got blown in Denver and OKC badly for example.

The main reason last season we were close in most games tough was our bench, the starters were often in trouble, only to have the bench rescue the game. Also, we were healthy, we never missed two key players in the same game, and rarely missed any player for an extended duration. We probably have more missed games by key rotation players already than the last two seasons combined.

Also, last season I seem to recall we had a record number of wins after trailing by 15+ points during the game and often that was the bench at work.

The Milwaukee game was absolutely a blowout. We were down 20 for a lot of that game. Not sure how that game wasn't a blowout unless you look at the final score and think a 15pt loss isn't a blowout. And that Pelicans game was a 16pt loss at home....to me that was a blowout. Under Casey, rarely did we lose by 15-20+ points.

Danny Green pretty down on the Raptors this morning, saying it seems like they’re ready for the all-star break: "It seems as if, watching some of the film, we’re going through the motions a little bit, not being sharp, not coming out the way we needed to or not coming out ready."
