Default Doug Smith: Good things from Raptors

Got a first look at what kind of thing Dwane Casey might draw up in big situations and it was a good one.

End of the first half, they’re up eight, Dwane uses his 20-second timeout and we’re wondering what he calls.

He’s got two big weapons – Bargnani and DeRozan – and one of them are going to get the ball for sure, right?

Well, Jose dribbles down the clock, there’s a meanlngless handoff to kill some time, and there goes DeRozan around a Bargnani screen, heads to the rim, Jose hits him with a perfect lob and a dunk ends the half.

And if the defender had gone with DeRozan and taken away the lob, Bargnani simply pops to the top and probably gets an open look.

Of course, every scout in the NBA will have that play diagrammed for their teams by about noon today but it was a good one I’m sure we’ll see again.
