that's game - it wasn't pretty but it wasn't a fire-able offense - is this team frustrating - sure - but do i have a but - not really - they're hard to watch for long stretches and Vogel - he falls asleep at the wheel man - he does his normal thing - other team adjusts and he just keeps doing his normal thing - granted we have a winning record but we're freakin loaded and lifting up couch cushions trying to scrape up enough change to beat the broke ass raptors in our own house man wtff

Bol Bol: 11 points tonight

The rest of the bench: 11 points tonight

Bol Bol and Eubanks both had 8 boards tonight - Eubanks has picked it up late in the past 2 games with nurk in foul trouble but come on man - dude is streakier than stripper panties - id much prefer figuring out Nurk's foul issue pronto because teams exploit our weaknesses before the ESPN dogs us about them

The recipe of not losing the 4th qrt battle is to have Beal and Allen handle the ball most of the time, with it landing into KD's hands in a more flowing way most of the time, as what happened in this game. From 2nd qrt on, our defensive attention became not as good and gave up too many open shots, but we returned to tight defense to close the game. Beal's block was huge there, as well as his PG play throughout the game.

Most concerning however was Nurk's off. foul and other TOs. He needs to keep it down, not irritated by guys like Olynik.

Good win without BOok
There was nothing good about that performance.

Yeah they won, but that was a bad team they were facing. For a team supposedly ramping up for the playoffs that was not good enough.

They played well without one of their leading scorers, Toronto never led, got out rebounded.This is a team they usually lose too at full strength so dont tell me this isnt a good win especially without Book.

Playing Saben... They never guarded him, dared him to shoot (which he deferred on), then attacked him on defense, and attacked him with ease. He's unplayable as much as Okogie is. He is the best ball handler and can weave in and out of traffic, but once he does, he just defers and gives it up to KD by default.
