It's just too bad we dont see it often enough.
Might see more of that if/when Lowry is gone and Vasquez is starting.

Derozan has no vision when he comes off a pick and roll or a pindown. He's missed Val 2 times this half, and missed a wide open Amir rolling to the rim in a 2 on 1 scenario off that pindown.

He also missed a wide open patterson rolling to the net, who would have had a clear dunk.

You'll see it a bit more against bad defences sure, but not overall since most teams will just go under screen rolls on Vasquez, stagnating the offence in forcing him to dribble into a bad jumper since he doesnt have the quickness to turn the corner if his defender goes under the pick.

Which is why we need to get an attacking PG in the off season who's capable of making plays when he gets in the lane. Lowry, as well as he's playing, isn't that, nor is Vasquez.

I'm watching from behind on LP, so my comments arent fully up to date, but that foul on Patterson when Durant went right down the lane and missed was complete and utter bullshit. Durant just missed the shot and the contact was minimal, plus Patterson jumped straight up and was outside the circle. One of the Raptors should have lost their shit and got a tech just to prove a point after that nonsense. I know theres been some other crappy calls in this game, but that one takes the cake.

This is why OKC isnt a fun team to watch unless they go up against a great defence who avoids the fouls.

Seems like the refs were even hesitant to call the ball hitting the top of the basket. Ready to give OKC an extra possession.
