Neither team shot well, but Detroit deserves all credit for their loss. Horrible team.
Didn't like our defence. Most of the few baskets that Det scored were quite open. And how many and-1 did they have?

But overall have to be happy with this kind of schedule. Now we can rest until saturday

Yeah, what's with him? Does he have a drug problem or something, or is it all just effort? What's with these talented ex-Raptors who never meet their full potential like Keon Clark and CV? Remember when Charlie had that 47 point game as a rookie... Guys who score almost 50 as a rookie usually don't become bums before they're 30!

On another note, it's crazy how stats don't tell you everything. Drummond has a better PER than anyone on the Raptors (21.92), because he's damn efficient, rebounds like a monster and gets blocks and steals. Doubtless he's a good player and he'll get better. But I'd take Valanciunas 10 times out of 10 over him right now; Val has a much more complete game on both ends of the court.

Stone is definitely a better defender than Vasquez.

Demar has one of his worst shooting games yet. And he gets to the line 16 times, grabs 6 boards, dishes out 4 assists, a handful of hockey assists (he is looking like a key part of the improved ball movement if you pay close attention), 2 steals, 2 blocked shots, and some really nice defensive possessions that forced some of the uglier Piston shots. That's why he should be at least considered as an AS pick.

I am liking Hayes ok. He reminds me of the inflatable version of the Raptor mascot with those stubby legs of his.

Once this team can make further use of Ross other than the 3 balls it is really going to get going. There is really a lot of room to grow yet. Which is nice to think about.

The issue with Detroit is their 2 big signings - Jennings and JSmoove. Jennings has terrible decision making and loves to jack up shots. JSmoove is well JSmoove. It's bad for guys like Drummond and Pope.

That's on Dumars. He also threw big contracts at Ben Gordon and Charlie V.

seriously? I liked Casey from day one, but was ready to see him go if he didn't decide on a rotation. He has thankfully, and there's no need to go any further. It's on them to remain prepared, and at the game I was at those guys were busy working before the game and at the half. Fields looked like he was putting in extra work by himself during the last pre-game show. He knows the score. Nobody is being an asshole to anybody else.

Pfffffttt.... He doesn't play any D, can't shoot the 3 and forces way too many shots. Overrated.

*Can someone make that text up there green please? Thanks!*




The Pistons were so close to righting the ship until they signed Smith..... yuck.
