Game 35: Charlotte Bobcats (9-25) @ Toronto Raptors (13-22)

17 posts in this topic

'Cats started slow and have never recovered.

The Raptors have been hitting everything which hasn't helped....lots of turnovers for Cha so far.

Here's to hoping the 'Cats can work on the lead and get it under ten before half.

44-25 with 5 min remaining in second quarter...Toronto has hit 6 threes already.

Refs have been letting them play..first free throws for either team came half way through second quarter

Jeff Adrian seems to be the only player with any energy this evening, hopefully it rubs off on everyone else...

53-39 Raptors at the Half.

Bobcats are getting out shot (48 percent to 39), out rebounded (by 6), and out hustled...so its remarkable the 'Cats are only down 14 points.

Henderson, Taylor, and Bismack have played sparingly this game...which is surprising.

Here's to a better second half and a 'Cats road win.

I really think the Bobcats are intentionally losing in order to get another high draft pick. I honestly do.

I think they are trading Biz and Hendo, not sure for what or with who. Also trying to loose, it's a completely different team right now then earlier in the season.

not questioning, merely wondering why you think that other than their lack of playing time this evening? I know Henderson's min have been inconsistent...just curious really

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
