Josh Smith is the only player at the F position that has more blocks per game than James Johnson this year. 1.8 for Johnson, 1.9 for Smith.

Derozan shooting 7-11. 21 pts. Not too shabby so far tonight.

I wonder if DeRozan should play more SF from here on out.

No Barbosa or Bargnani and we are up 20 late in the 4th (ya it's the Nets, so they beat us earlier this season)? Epic collapse like Orlando, or win?

It'll probably be both. implode, allow 20 in the next 6 minutes, then win by 2.

Feasible. I could see that scenario playout. Rasual butler with the game winning tap in.

I never thought I'd see it but the Raptors won an NBA game without 2 of their top scorers. Wow. Casey has to be coach of the year.

Wow.. I am not a regular NBAer but first road trip won (of 5+ games) in 10 years! Sad decade I guess.

73 points again. Honestly, this team's defensive effort is so beautiful. I'm so happy with this. I'd rather get defensive basketball all day, every day.

Is this the first time we ever beat Deron Williams?

Nets won both last year, won the only game we played with them this year and he owned us in Utah since coming into the league.

I think so. We can't hang with good/great PGs usually.

Kidd, Nash, Williams, Paul, they all give us HUGE problems.

But that's the scary thing we beat Nash too (mind you a far out of his prime Nash but a future HOF'er nonetheless). Amazing what a new coach and playing defense will do eh?

Yeah, but Paul just gave em trouble. They really need a #1 PG, they haven't had one since Damon Stoudamire.

Good call, Hyperglide:

Williams’ has faced them fifteen times in his career, and last night was the very first time he came up on the losing end in one of those encounters.

Gotta give credit to Demar, 27 points on 12 shots is an impressive night. Didn't watch the game but I heard he was playing SF tonight.

Great job of coaching tonight by Casey . Went small and had Bayless starting at sg and covering D-Will .

DD played well tonight , He was moving without the ball well and attacking the rim after getting the ball on a cut . Casey used him well tonight and this is how he needs to be used if he's going to be effective .

Bayless had a good game , to bad he wasn't a couple of inches bigger because he looks alot better at sg than he does at pg .

Great D overall by everyone , it's shocking the difference a coach can make .

yeah he can be impressive and look like a legit starter some games, like this one. the problem is he usually has performances like this then takes several weeks to do anything remotely as productive.

Just watching "Drive" with Ryan Gosling. Raptors are playing the Clippers in the movie, you can hear the commentary on the radio. DeRozan, Barbosa, Triano, Davis, Johnson, Bayless all mentioned.

Oh yeah, and the Raptors end up losing.

Blake Griffin with the filthiest-dirtiest dunk all year. I think it even beats out Bron Brons from last night on John Lucas. Dizzam!

I'm kind of shocked this hasn't been mentioned, but this came out yesterday;

Quote:
Jose Calderon/Leandro Barbosa: The Raptors are shopping. They’d like to pick up another draft pick or two, but the real need is at Small Forward.

Sources close to the process say the Raptors plan to make life hard on the Denver Nuggets with regards to restricted free agent Wilson Chandler. Wilson is waiting for his clearance from China after dominating in the CBA.

Sources say that Jose Calderon and Leandro Barbosa could be moved to land a traded player exception or smaller assets to swap with Denver in a sign and trade.

The Nuggets say they will re-sign Wilson, but with the dollars committed to Nene, Arron Afflalo and now Danilo Gallinari – Toronto may put a number on the table via a sign and trade offer that makes re-signing Chandler in Denver tough.

Denver holds the power as Wilson is a restricted free agent, but Toronto has eyes for Wilson and seems willing to pony up the dollars. They’d still need a deal, but once one team puts a crazy number on the table that’s how prices get set.

A starting small forward still sits at the top of the Raptor’s wish list, and it seems Calderon and LB are the chips they will cash to get one, so keep that in mind as other names start to shake loose.

Assets Mixes good size and athleticism with coordination and a solid skill-level. Can play anywhere from shooting guard to power forward. A good rebounder. Does it all, from blocking shots to hitting threes.

Flaws A bit inconsistent and doesn't stand out in any one area. While he can score like a shooting guard and rebound like a power forward he might benefit by establishing a more clear role.

Career potential Versatile above-average swingman.

Would be a sensational addition to the lineup and really shore up the SF position.
