Denver sucked. The Raps just played extremely poor ball and that's the truth. Just JV alone missed like 4 or 5 POINT BLANK shots that he shoulda just dunked. And their obsessive love for the 3 ball when it's not falling is nuts.
That's one thing I don't understand. Why are you going for a finger roll or lay up when you have the strength and space to dunk it? It brings energy to the crowd, sends a statement to your opponent, and in turn fires up your own team.

Yes, pls educate me why big/tall/strong players DON'T dunk when w/i range...isn't it easier to do that w/ highest %age of success vs other methods?

It's the type of player he is. JV also loses all respect from the refs when he hollers and screams for a foul that he clearly commits. Just like that push-off rebound. I like JV but I think I'd like to see more PT from Monroe. I think he can still play and contribute at a decent level.

Not sure if it was previously mentioned, but Raptors finally getting some TV love. ESPN is doing their All-Access coverage tomorrow of the Toronto Raptors and it will run all day.

Really petty move by TSN not to air today's The Jump episode focused on the Raps. Are they that scared of ESPN coverage of the team? Makes you want an ESPN direct Canadian option even more.
