Fun game. Definitely missed Kyle. It was like OKC was made up of nothing but Kyles. They were all pitbulls. Incredible onslaught of threes. Still, Toronto was right there in spite of all the turnovers and the OKC three balls. Some elite offense and defense on both sides.
If Ibaka is going to end up mostly coming off the bench, I’d like to see him with Kyle drive the offense during a lot of his minutes.
If someone told you before the game you'd have 20 turnovers and they'd hit 20 3s, you'd say we'd lose by 20," Raptors Fred VanVleet said. "It's not a recipe for success."
With Lowry out, just a perfect storm for OKC.
Healthy Lowry and finally healthy and improved FVV will be golden for whoever is on the court. Ibaka has lost a little bit of rhythm since suspension but he was bound for rest games soon anyways, it kind of worked out perfectly. He had something like a week off, had time to practice with the team and get some rest. Now there's enough games to get back into the groove and it will be fun once everyone is healthy.
It is also a pleasure to see the team start to really come together. There's real growth going on and it looks like we'll be in really good position in round two.
