Default The Andrea and DeMar show

Quote:
After the Raptors beat the Knicks at MSG on Monday night, I wrote that Andrea Bargnani and DeMar DeRozan were becoming quite the scoring duo. However I also insinuated that they were far from becoming one of the league’s best combos when I wrote that they were “not yet great, but capable, to say the least.”
Perhaps it’s time to rethink my words.
Bargnani and DeRozan followed up their impressive performances against the Knicks with a combined 56 points on 20-of-34 shooting (58.8 per cent) against the Cavs on Wednesday night, which included them combining for eight-of-15 from beyond the arc.
Through six games so far, Bargnani and DeRozan are combining for numbers that I can’t remember a Raptors duo putting together in years. The pair are combining for 42.5 points per game on over 51 per cent shooting from the field and over 47 per cent shooting from deep. In addition, they are going to the line a combined 10 times per game (this is the one area of their offensive game I would like to see improve), where they are hitting over 82 per cent of their free throws.

Nice article with which I agree. What do you think about these considerations on DeMar and Andrea?

Nice to know. I had no clue they were putting up such amazing numbers. Hopefully this play continues.

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

It's still been pretty easy going as far as competition goes. Let's see how things fare when they start hitting some stiffer competition.

Its great that Demar has developed a three point shot, now its time for him to develop a better left hand dribble, so he can drive more and get more easy baskets at the free throw line. His shots wont fall every game

hopefully Demar can put the work in, this team needs a second option badly.

If Demar can stop going invisible for 1/3 or more of the game, we're in good shape!

If they're still keeping those numbers up after 30-40 games I'll be impressed.
