Default Raptors Prepping for Playoff Run?

According to Doug Smith this morning, what we've seen defensively this season is not how we're going to approach or play defensively come playoff time. We might show some brief sneak previews, but nothing like we're going to see tactic wise come playoff time.

I don稚 know what exactly they値l do but some things to ponder and watch for:

Do they double the guy immediately on the catch beyond the three-point line? The danger being that a guy like LeBron can hit open teammates immediately and open NBAers generally make shots.

Do they double on the first dribble, which is what I think they値l eventually do with James.

If they double, do they send a big or a wing player or a point guard? If it痴 Dwight Howard, do they double from the side or the top, or do they switch it up to make it more confusing for him?

I think those are some of things you can watch for and maybe see the rest of the way.

But I値l tell you this: In games against Orlando, Cleveland and Washington the rest of the regular season, they will not do what they are planning to do in the post-season.

I don't think it worked tonight. And frankly, that's the dumbest thing I ever heard. What exactly are we going to do, reinvent basketball? If we can't stop Kareem Rush, I wonder how the hell are we going to stop Lebron ...

I know most love Delfino coming off the bench, but I think the Moon experiment has come to a end and he should coming off the bench for some added energy. We definitely need Carlos' offense eventhough it can be crapshoot sometimes.

Opposing team's SG & SF are exploiting Moon waaaay too easily now-a-days and Parker has definitely lost a step on the defensive end. I think Delfino is more consistent on both sides of the ball. Time to shake things up a bit with this team seeing how we can't do it via trade anymore. What do we have to lose? We lost to the Pacers for christ sakes.

prep to get run off the court :P just kidding, hopefully we have a few tricks up our sleeve, but i predicted a 1st round exit on another forum and im sticking by that, flame away, i just think we have way too many holes and the only way we are going to beat a team that has the time to really break us down on film and expose our weakness' is to shoot the lights out. I dont think breaking down teams is our coaching specialty :P
