When it comes to playing the Toronto Raptors, it seems that the New Orleans Pelicans don’t need their All-Star power forward Anthony Davis to win.
If you want to get into Toronto Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey’s doghouse, not being ready to play when its time to start the game will do it. “When you don’t come out in this league ready to play mentally and physically, I don’t care who you are, you are going to get your behind handed to you,” Casey said.
If you are a Toronto Raptors fan you have to love Friday night’s 105-80 beat down of the Eastern Conference leading Hawks right in Atlanta. The victory gave Toronto a 3-1 win in the season series. Sweet Lou Williams reminded his old team that they made a mistake by trading him to Toronto as he hit a career-high 7 three-point shots.
Toronto Raptors Bruno Caboclo didn’t disappoint in 10.5 minutes with the Mad Ants. In the first half he blocked Thanasis Antetokoupnmpo (older brother of the Bucks Giannis, ‘The Greek Freak’) and grabbed the board. At least he got to play a bit in this game. Canadian Jordan Bachynski played backup center for the Knicks, and in just 14.9 minutes, he led his team in scoring.
