Now I can get back to killing Demar and Casey for them being awful at their jobs.

Demar should be ashamed at how bad Johnson owned him. His effort on D was awful all series, but really came to the forefront today. There were at least 3-5 loose balls, or passes in his vicinity that he could have corralled but instead he chose the easy route to just lay back and let the Nets player get the ball. And his defence on Johnson? Its the definition of the word soft in sports.

Casey? Didn't make an adjustment that worked all series on Johnson. Johnson isn't Lebron, he shouldn't be this hard to guard THE ENTIRE FUCKING GAME. He either gave him the exact same double team looks with our weak, unprepared rotations where it wasn't even a hard double team and gave Johnson an easy pass to the corner or under the rim to KG, or else he'd just let him go 1 on 1 and dribble his way into a 5 foot hook shot. His defensive schemes vs essentially their only offence was pathetic.

I can't stand the way Derozan gets his points, it's such an inefficient way to score, he kills the rhythm of the offence, and he never makes the easy, quick pass out of traps or hard hedges. He's the reason JV was taken out of this series offensively with his selfish play.

Get rid of them both.
+1

I am down to get rid of them both. Hopefully a good deal comes around on draft day and we can send DD packing. If not he has to work on passing a lot more and to stop jacking up shots. We can't let him think he is the franchise guy and that he is the one that needs to be scoring, I feel like that is why he takes a lot of his shots
crazy talk..
kind of fans that are never satisfied, fire casey, get rid of Demar etc.. when we bring in new guys and the team fails.. it will be the same talk all over again.

People saying get rid of Casey like we as a franchise accomplished anything.. IMO I want the same team back next year with a few new additions.

Demar is 24, way better first year playoff performance then Vince. Showed allot of growth in this series, faced double teams, was getting ruffed up.. and today played with a flu and still dropped 18 and 6.. unless of course you would prefer James Harden who is getting paid way more, doesn't pass nor play defense.

Good job Raps, couldn't be more proud of this team.. and I have been watching them since their first season

With the management we've brought in, why cant we get a big name coach? Isn't that the whole hype around Leiweke? That he's able to bring in the big fish? For a market like ours, we need and deserve a good proven coach for once.
Ross' growth will be very big. He still has to show that he is more than potential. If he gets stronger and becomes an elite defender then that will be bigger than anything. Jonas and him made a ton of mistakes and still had a good impact overall. If they clean things up then this team looks really good. There is no need to throw DeMar under the bus, or fire a coach, when a team has completely overachieved and looks poised to improve greatly from here. Sometimes i find it hard to believe that you aren't born and raised as a torontonian.

Give Balls Don't Lie a chance to prove that he is right. I'm sure he'll take pride in taking the mistakes if he is wrong.

But yea I seriously anyone who had the thought of casey not being able to bring this team to the play offs should be eating their own words. I even gotta eat my own when I doubted he could do it. As for other players yes they've made mistakes in their first play offs experience. I'll only give them 1 more season to improve themselves for me.

You guys pushed it to 7. Be proud your players tried as hard as they could. It's cool to see the Raptors make it back on the main stage. That's a major stride, major improvement. Try and make it a regular thing from here on out.

Nets won fair and square. They won cause they were the better team. Period. We missed shots we usually make, they made their shots. And no one should be traded or fired, I thought they all did fine.

Look forward for next year, this series will help us grow. We're only going to get better. Good year and I'm proud to be a Raptor's fan because of the way they played this series.

If I told you before the game that we'd get:

Amir: 18pts/10reb
PP: 16pts/8reb
KL: 28pts/7reb
Ross: 11pts
Derozan: 18pts/6asts


Would you believe we'd win?


Valanciunas getting 3pts/5reb in 27min was just not good enough

We only got outscored in one quarter. That 35pt second quarter from Brooklyn killed us. The x-factor for them was Thornton. He was the difference in the first half imo.

Rebounding the past two games was not as good either. I believe those are the only two games Nets out-rebounded Toronto.

Today, Nets got a lot of BIG 2nd chance points.

I was wondering if the injury kept him out from playing long minutes?? Maybe his back is still hurting?

Not sure though, it is a good question.

Yes its the Raptors fault at the end of the day they lost but the refs had a huge impact on the game that put them at a disadvantage

It's suspect that the one player that seemed to be playing great was Amir and he was essentially neutered before the half.

I don't advocate ruminating after the game, but who would've wanted Lowry to ISO and shoot a mid range or three instead of driving and being malled over by 4 nets with a 0percent chance they would call a foul in the final seconds of a game 7.
