Missed the entire 2nd half, but got worried towards end of the first. 2nd half summary from anyone? TP awaits.
C's were outworked and the Raps had the defensive plan against IT in the 4th. Thomas jacked up a bunch of bad shots, made a couple of bad TO's and we just couldn't recover. He was guarded by the likes of Tucker and Joseph, both of whom played him physical. Derozan couldn't be stopped and I feel like he did most of his damage in the 3rd qtr against our bench unit. He hit a big shot to ice the game late in the 4th after a questionable call (Crowder stripped him and replay looked like it went off Demar but Raps got the ball).
In summary, Raps looked really good out there, playing like a cohesive unit. Cory Joseph, Derozan, Carroll, Patterson and Ibaka looked like a tough lineup to defend. PJ Tucker was a very good acquisition for them, as a 3D player (looked even better than Carroll in this game).
