Guess the defence was an "alt-shift-delete".

Kleiza didn't take enough shots. Surely he would have started to hit at a high rate eventually. Wait - he only shot 21 times? Why does it seem like it was 40?

Bargnani and Derozan had career nights but both games resulted in a loss
At least Davis got his career night and win

It was there for a quarter. It's pretty hard to control tempo against a team like Houston, and Bayless was instrumental in controlling the game last time out. Hopefully they did notice the difference between runouts coming out of strong defense, and just running blindly into defenses that are counting on nothing else but that.

I really thought it was a bad idea to go small when Amir got in foul trouble. I'm not sure we got one offensive rebound once he went out.

Problem is there is no legit backup. We only had 4 active big men- Johnson, Davis, Dorsey and Alabi. Triano had to go to his bigger SF to fill the gap.

He could of put Dorsey back in.

He went with Jose, Barbosa, Derozan, Kleiza and Davis

I don't remember exactly when this was. But it could because Dorsey had 2 quick personal fouls or they subbed him off for rest moments ago.

Kleiza preformed well at the 4 though- he had 12 rebounds.

They had a lot of quick possessions after they replaced Amir with Derozan and went with four smalls. A lot of outside shots with 3 rockets boxing out one Raptor on the glass.

Not to mention Dorsey was a handful for them when he was on the court.

I thought Johnson and Dorsey were both tough for Houston to handle. They limited their own limits by picking up dumb fouls.

And a bit off topic, does anyone know how and when Stojakovic injured his knee? He was fine playing against Boston, and then just disappeared for 20 games.

With the amount of players we have currently active & the foul troubles to Amir & Kleiza, I'm sorry but I would have thrown Alabi out there against Brad Miller, Jordan Hill even Patterson to an extent, I believe his size would have bothered them!

On this night the Raps were out coached IMO

Dorsey only had 3 fouls. Davis 2 fouls. If they're tough to handle, and you're down 10 in the fourth, why would they be on the bench. Kleiza fouled out, and wasn't supplying any type of quickness advantage at the PF spot that you would expect from him playing that position.

Pretty much. The second Leo commended them for running so well at every opportunity, it appeared that the running was not part of a whole, where they could take advantage of good defensive stops and not give up a bunch of extra easy possessions going the other way. That was part of going small as well. They had to work that much harder in failing to give up easy points in the paint, and then had to run uphill that much more to try to get their early offense working. All it took was Houston paying a little extra attention to getting back in transition, and the Raptors gameplan started to work against itself as much as against the Rockets.

It's just been such an endless pattern for years now. But I still hold out hope that it's starting to change.
