No complaints. Couldn't have asked for a better effort.

Only if Raptors would play some defense on first half ... Good game for Joey and Tony!

Can someone explain to me the Raps last shot? Like, why didn't they go for the trey? It makes no sense.

yep, props to bosh, that ankle looked bad bad bad. This team just needs some luck to, BTW for those woder why they went for the two. It was a good decision. Then you foul. If the miss a free throw, you have a chnace for the win.

He jokingly said "sorry" to JT ... he didn't say he felt sorry for us in general.

I'd rather go for the quick bucket and see if they miss at the FT line. That's generally what most coaches will look to do with 10+ seconds left.

They went for the quick 2.

IF Parker makes the lay up there is still 10seconds to go. YOu try for the steal... don't get you foul.

There would be about 8 seconds to go. If they make both FT you call a TO and set up a 3 point play. If they make 1FT or less than you can set up a play to tie or win it with 8seconds to go.

Not a bad play call...just didn't work.

You go for a quick 2 and than you hope for a quick steal on Suns inbound, if this fails you foul and hope for a miss at FT line. After that, Raptors still have the last J. If you go for a 3, you risk everything and still may give Suns the last play.
