Simmons boo’ed, same goes for Maker. Both overrated who would have thought

2nd year player and its game 1
Still made the same amount of 3s as me in the NBA. My main issue is actually with Brett Brown and just roster in general. Unless he’s got the ball and driving to make shots for others he’s absolutely useless on the floor. Why he was kept out there idk but the crowd was obviously gonna turn on him

They'll bounce back, why don't we talk about Kyle Lowry instead?  Guy is non-existent in play-offs, absolutely invisible.  If he keeps this up then Kawhi is gone for sure.
It's weird, his shooting and scoring 0 points is inexcusable, but we were still a far better team when he was on the floor even though he was a brick merchant.

Only starter with a + net rating at +11, and we were a -14 in the 14 minutes he sat, this has been the pattern every single year since 13-14 for the Raptors in the playoffs, whether Lowry's shooting is down or not, they are still a significantly better team when he's out there. In the 5 minutes that Van Vleet played instead of Lowry with the starters, Toronto were a -16.

This sums it up well: https://www.raptorshq.com/2019/4/15/18309763/2019-nba-playoffs-toronto-raptors-orlando-magic-game-1-analysis

Interesting article, but still doesn't show how they solve it, Raptors are better with Lowry on the court, but he still can't put in game winning performances as the second star on the team.  Catch 22.

Oh for sure, definitely an issue. Would argue Siakam is more the second star on the team now though.

31 pts down, biggest comeback in NBA playoff history.  Huge!  Wonder what Clips were paying when they were 31pts down?  :o

Safe to say they don't need him though.

seems to turn up when he really was needed.

They probably would have won both games if Game 2 and Game 1 Lowry switched places.

As I expected, Nugs just look meh and their 2nd place finish in the West isn't a reflection of where they stand in the comp

Spurs looking good to go 2-0 and possibly sweep them at home

If Denver lose here it will be a choke of the greatest magnitude!

- Massive home advantage but blowing both home games
- Have Jokic who's been an MVP candidate
- Playing arguably the worst Spurs roster in 20 years

I'll claim this post got them going if they win now.  :P
