Default That TJ like style

From Ukie baby!!! Makes us play so much better, hopefully Calde is seeing that a bit, we need to have more PG penetration and it opens up everything for our shooters once the D has to worry about the PG driving. Happy for Ukie altho i thought his game winner was not under control, ill advised and flat out stupid, if he had missed he would have been an idiot, and i still dont like it that much even tho he hit. But that's what comes with the TJ style i guess, bad decisions and turnovers at times.

couldnt agree more. and yes that's exactly what we need. jose's pulling up at the three point line is what the defense wants him to do. he's far more effective changing speeds and all of that, getting to the basket.

Boy oh boy he hit a face up three and an out of control runner in the last minute. Incredible.

Roko unleashed so much swag that he crashed the forum

Clearly Raptor nation could not handle the foreign substance that is heart and balls, after so long. It shocked the system.

Well he had a ton of luck with those shots. If they miss, RF would be full of fire and brimstone on Jay and Rokos necks.
Played a great game nevertheless.

The guy played a much bigger role by necessity, and succeeded. I've been watching his shot in warmups and seen that in non-game situations it looked good. I'm very happy to see that he has transferred that to game situations now. And the runners are the things he is most comfortable with. Tony Parker misses some of those - sometimes at the end of games - but I'd still be happy seeing the attempts. It was what the defense was offering. He saw that. And he didn't think twice. You can't ask for more - especially with this team.

So you approve that rookie who plays every other game and doesn't shoot spectacular percentages takes your key shots?

I do! Better than letting Bosh take a fadeaway or Parker a very_contested_fadeaway
Roko is clutch and quick and game is natural to him. Big future ahead.

the only thing similar is that they're both good back ups

Yeah, but he's got potential to be a pretty damn good player.

Let him adjust, give him some minutes. I've been saying he'll be a good player all year long.

Also, where are the people that said they can beat Roko 1 on 1?

While very true, u seem to forget he is still rookie. Anyways guys won, Roko did well - hopefully he will do couple more of those this year.

And please do not turn every single thread into flameing the guys u are supposed to support.

Yeah, so I apparently missed a fantastic game last night. Trade Jose and trade Bosh. Its clear that they're the two that are bringing us down.

ummm.... wow?

I didn't watch the game. went out and played some darts instead.
Kinda mad about missing the game now. I saw the highlites and just think that maybe Roko's shot is starting to come around. Wasn't Triano the main contributor in Jose's shot improvemts? The way defenders give him room to shoot... it would be awesome if his jumper started to get a little reliable.

Anyways, looks like Andrea was pretty big too.

must have been an awesome game. Maybe i'll try to watch it archived or something.

Roko playing well is one thing, but has anyone noticed that some of his best games this season have been against teams like the Spurs and Celts? Playing decent is one thing, but when your stepping it up against two of the best teams in basketball that says alot. Not implying he's going to be a star, but he's proving to be a more than adequate back up.

Roko should have been Bosh's replacement at the all star game
