If the Raptors keep playing like this, I can see them losing the rest of their games to close out the regular season.

Kadeem allen has my attention

Made a hustle play in defensive transition altering a pass. Seems to be long. Good instincts on D. I like what I see

Oh, I thought that was Semi, thanks for correction...
yeah it was Kadeem. Semi put nice defensive pressure earlier on a cut I think although I think he fouled

Lowest scoring first quarter all season for raptors. Kadeem allen on defense stopped that van fleet 3.

Danny really seems to have nailed last years draft!

not bad not bad. ahead after one quarter and not shooting or playing their best. 5 turnovers, 1-3 from three point land...but ahead by 6 in toronto.

i'll take it!  ;D

Yeah he is quietly not making mistakes and just playing hard.  I like that too.

Great quarter on D! Gave up very few easy shots.

Terry Rozier is tremendous.  SO much improved.  In addition to making things happen offensively, he's already pulled down 2 defensive boards that were pure grit boards.

He's an asset for sure.  I think he's pushing his trade value into the Jaylen Brown range.

Hey, if Kawhi becomes available and Rozier = Jaylen to them, and we keep both Brown + Tatum, that would be HUGE.  ;D

Of course I have no idea what GMs are thinking, but TR is looking like a bona fide starting PG in this league.  Good attitude; hard worker...   I do think Rozier's emergence gives the C's another high value asset.

Credit to Casey for daring Allen to beat them.

Is Rozier's improvement basically sealing smart's fate?  a few weeks ago I would have thought that was crazy.  After all these starts in place of Kyrie, I am seriously starting to wonder.

It will depend on the offer Smart gets.

I wish Horford would step up more in these kinds of games.

Nice to see the young guys and rookies make plays but to win games, we need Horford to also contribute more (especially with like half our team missing and most of our starters)
