That's impossible to say one way or the other. I do know he's blown games late. Anyone remember not fouling late in a game i believe vs Charlotte and the final buzzer went off with our players looking at him dumbfounded? Casey has his strengths but late game play calls, hell inbound play calls in general are not his strengths.

Kyle doesn't need to take the shot, but that ball needs to start in his hands with 12 seconds on the clock. You have plenty of time to run a set play instead of an iso without even a clear out.

for me, the achievements this season are far greater than the failings. Is casey the best coach in the league? No, but we're not getting carlisle or pop to come here. Does he have a chance to be that kind of a coach one day? I absolutely believe that. Which is more than I can say about 20+ HCs out there.

And this season he did a fantastic job overall.

You won't see the top coaches in the NBA pull that shit. Watching some of the best teams in the NBA run sets out of timeouts versus watching the Raptors is like night and day.

Run a real play for once. That's what you're getting paid for. Jeff could have drawn up that bullshit. Why even call a timeout?
If we meet Chicago in the playoffs I would expect it to happen. Why is Chicago getting sold short in all of this?

Who exactly wasn't going to be going against a top defender?

But yeah sure, what kind of growth the team can ultimately show or not show will mean a lot as to what happens with the coaching position.

so what, those are set plays, just get someone to implement them and get it over with, let Casey focus on the big picture where he clearly excels, and get someone like triano to handle the set plays.

Honestly, I think our offense is so one dimensional because all we do is pick and roll and then pass it around until someone gets a good shot, or a screen for demar/ross for an open jumpshot

That's a total bs exaggeration. Really now, get a grip mr it's over in the first quarter. There have been a ton of good calls coming out of timeouts.

and yet, our one dimensional offense ranks 10th in the league

Btw, after checking the stats, we are top 10 in both offense and defense this season (the only other teams being SA, OKC and Houston) . Lousy job Casey, gtfo!

Putting Demar in a position to make a play against perhaps the league's best perimeter defender is doomed to fail. If you want to go to him, set a pin down, which might even force a switch or leave the screener open near the hoop. In the very least it would put pressure on the defense. And if nothing develops, the ball's still in Kyle's hand to create something.

I thought the energy was solid tonight. Well, after the first quarter, when the Raps cut off the paint. The Bulls just hit their jump shots. Tough loss, though.

What? You fucking weighed them? Let me state the obvious and point out more specifically that there are more than one in most games. This team has executed quite well on offense overall, and out of timeouts as well. If ypu want to provide evidence to contradict what moremilk has provided then go at it.

I was at the bar watching... how does nobody comment that DD was completely hacked across both arms on the last shot. It wasn't a block, it was a complete hack across both arms. It doesn't excuse the jump shot but it was a blatant foul. It doesn't excuse the retarded airball either but that game should have been ours but we were fucked again.

another thing that speaks to casey's strengths is how we are often able to counter a team's strengths (took away w's 3pt shooting, chicago's rebounding). If only JV wouldn't be such a pussy, this team could be the #3 defense, we're not that far off.

Not sure how people can't appreciate that more, especially with a Raptors team that traditionally ranked in the bottom half or worse (irony alert).

numbers don't tell everything. our offense is predictable, even worse we don't use it in closing seconds and resort to an iso

It's funny that nobody has ripped Casey the last couple months for the most part. Once something happens and we complain (let's face it, mainly out of frustration) people get their backs up. Not arguing that Casey has done a good job with this team for the most part this season, especially on the defensive end. But some of his play calling is atrocious, especially late in games, i will continue to say that when he does shit like tonight.
