It's just such a shame that Lucas had a toe on the 3-point arc, as did Bargnani when fouled. And that DeMar had a poor night shooting freethrows, let alone getting calls. It felt like one of those nights where the refs were hoping to influence the outcome, but even they couldn't have hoped for that Jefferson shot going in.

It was cool that DeMar got the chance to win it at the end of the first OT. He was deserving of that. But I really wish Casey looked past that and drew up a play for Lucas, who had fresh legs and was in really good form last night. Instead of hitting the shot that dragged the game into OT3, he could have made the shot that won it much earlier.

It was an enjoyable game, and made a few things clear. There is some really good potential with a backcourt of Lowry and DeRozan. The team won't go anywhere by trading baskets, so hopefully they get back to the identity they started to build upon last season. And there is enough heart with these guys still, for now.
