ToRap .... when you achieve that level, it means you are a very good team. I think Raptors is at that level where they are more concerned with sticking with basic basketball skills. They don't have in their arsenal that many options to switch good strategies within the same game.

To do what you present, you have to have a core team that knows each other very well, playing together for a while. In the last few seasons, they changed many times players. For example, only Bosh was a Raptors 4 seasons ago. Spurs and Detroit have their core playing together for years, they can alternate different strategies within the same game without too much trouble. At this time Raptors has problems to integrate the newcomers into ONE STRATEGY (JO/Roko/Solomon).
