At the same time,I think his time may need to be up as a Raptor. He just felt none exsistent in the late and crucial moments of the game. I really would like Millsap as the Raptors
starting PF even more than ever after tonight,he hustles and he can even make the 3 too(was 3/4 tonight). Bargs
just seems to be regressing for some reason,maybe a change of scenery is best for him and the Raps,just a thought
He's not a great athlete, and its well known he struggles when he plays heavy minutes. He looked completely gassed in OT, and was just handing the ball off to Derozan, which was understandable considering DD was on fire.
I also wonder if the potential for a calf strain was leaning on his mind after the first OT session.
