Siakam looking like g-leaguer tonight.


Yeah, worst game of the season by far. 

We'll get them next time

Well, 3-2 on this road trip with all the injuries...I'll take it. Tough night, last game of a long road trip usually is.

Would've liked seeing more Thomas in the 2nd half. He was on fire in the 1st

They were glued to him in the 2nd

I am really curious to see how this team does when everybody is healthy, I'm afraid to even admit it - but it makes you wonder how good can we actually be. 

While we don't have a kawhi level guy, it's definitely looking like the best raptors team ever outside last season's.

Fully deserved, we made too many mistakes - fatigue makes you sloppy.

That game was not called evenly. I agree we were playing tired, but they should have been called for more fouls, some non calls were pretty obvious.

They have a definite pattern of winning one quarter big and then losing the other three. It would be good to see that evened out a bit more - add to some of that breakout oomph that they show at some point in every game with at least some kind of advantage in other frames.

so so so so many layups and floaters rolling off the rim. That was a bigger factor than the freethrow disparity. I imagine a good bit of the fouling came after such misses. It makes it tough on the defense. On top of everything, the Mavs simply responded really well. They hit tough shots and played real feisty on the defensive end. I can’t be overly disappointed to lose to a team that has to work that hard and that well to get the W. They raised their level of play. It looked like the Mavs were finding some of their identity out there tonight.

Gasol getting roasted on twitter.

My standard for Gasol has become so low that I’m genuinely happy if he can score 10 points and just make some plays here and there. This is the type of game where we needed a leader in Lowry to calm down the pace and get some offensive execution to close the game out. Credit to the guys for getting back within 2 points and making it winnable. Rest up and enjoy the next home stretch!

I was hoping Nurse would’ve used Thomas in more pick and pop situations since he was demanding so much attention on the perimeter.

Gasol and porzingis have to be the two worst 7ft guys in the post


Gasol used to be moderate in the post, not even sure what's going on with him and his hesitance to score.

I didn't watch the game, but I'm hoping siakam scoring so poorly was a factor of fatigue and a random blip, rather than defences zoning in on him as a superstar and him not reacting well to it.

Yeah. He missed a lot of easy ones he usually gets. Not concerned.
