Default Colangelo's Interview This Morning On FAN590

Didn't hear it myself, but here are some recaps from a couple RealGM posters.

- too much dribble penetration allowed
- thought was to go big to match up against Hedo & Lewis

BC On Howard:

- Howard man-handled us, maybe there should have been a few offensive fouls
- Looked to BC like a few of Howards block could have been goaltending
- the team that is the aggressor does usually come out on top in the playoffs(with regards to the refs calls)
- players can get away with a little more physical contact as we saw on the screens yesterday

How the starting line up changed: strategic decision - matchups (vs big team - hedu, rashard, dwight)

Start with defence

Talked about the block shot being momentum changer - Bryan said 2 of the shots close to being goaltends

Talked about Dwight - a beast, manhandled Rasho (Rasho probably tired, not a foul), pushed AP out of bounds (should've maybe been a foul), almost impossible to keep him off the glass in conventional ways

Different officiating in playoffs (ie. NHL) - can't really discuss this but usually the team who's the aggressor comes out of the better end with calls - our team was a little bit soft (1 to 5), we need to pick up the intensity because this is the playoffs, refs have heightened sense of what's going on, Dooling putting his arms around one of our guards

There's nothing we can say to the officiating crew - keep your distance from them - don't find out who the crew before the game is except for Violet Palmer (only female official)

He's on his blackberry a lot during the game because he's taking notes on questionable calls - at the end of the day Bryan will respond re: calls (e.g., 1st quarter, this play, incorrect call) - this gives a basis to have a discussion

TJ Ford and Raptors - Bryan will discuss this issue this summer if Jose and TJ can go forward as a tandem, then he recapped what happened - that Jose starting couldn't work for TJ, will try to work it out this summer if both can play together like last season if not decisions will be made - would rather focus on tomorrow night's game.
