NBA  > General NBA  > Toronto Raptors blow a winnable game against the Chicago Bulls
February 20, 2014, 10:50 AM
Last night against the Chicago Bulls I saw the Raptors play the worse sixty seconds of basketball I've seen in a long time.
The Raptors had two opportunities to tie or win the game, The last two plays called by a possible coach of the year candidate turned into a playground play, you know the ones with no direction.
It was Horrific! Even worse the all-star DeMar DeRozan came out looking like a lost puppy, picking up his dribble with nowhere to go.
If one is going to iso and be LIKE MIKE you better- at least- make a credible attempt, that hero disaster is not what an all star does.
Coach Casey would of been better running a pick and roll, at least it would of given them a shot at a foul. Coach Casey most be drinking the all-star Kool-Aid.
Look, I'm not coach but one could see the play was a dead duck from the get go, everybody clearing out and DeMar going one on one MJ style, lets remember that even though he is a great talent he does lose balls when going to the hoop.
I love DeMar, but he is not MJ or Kobe, sorry folks but that is a fact.
The second horrific play:
Ball was inbounded with 2+ seconds left to DeMar , he dribbles from behind foul line to mid court and shot-puts a 50 footer, guess who was open in his spot -tenths of a second- after DeMar got the ball? NOVAK was in his shooting range. All DeMar had to do is look up, but clearly his intention was to make this his win or loss.
This was a winnable game. Terrible last 60 seconds.
As always this is a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I'm thankful for that.
Enough said.
