OG played really good defense on Julius Randle after that first quarter where he exploded for 20 points, he really harassed Randle and didn’t let him get off his comfy jackets which was a big reason Toronto was in a position to win this game. The OG continued to shoot to be below par, but his fit was good today and he had a mid-range pullover.
Scotty played really well tonight, moved the ball really well and again was much better on the defensive side than we’re used to, he took some jumpy rushes but other than that he had a solid game.
Another turbulent night from Pascal who seemed annoyed at all the bodies that Knicks threw at him. Pascal played well in defense and was a well deserved drink harbinger, but the goal they needed just wasn’t there tonight as it should have been.
Another great night of shooting from Gary, he was getting a lot of looks from the shoot and was also really cool with the transition. His middle jump was also good and he was still very good at clutching today.
Fred played well at both ends today, gave Ponson a lot of trouble at times and was also excellent at getting to the edge tonight. He had a bunch of good finishing and also found himself on the free-throw line to add to his tally.
Some positives in CK’s defense tonight, he had some great selection plays and defensive dribbling, and he also did well with his scoring opportunities.
Great game from Boucher tonight, really great in transition and had an easy look and was fighting on the glass too.
Precious didn’t play well defensively tonight and just struggled trying to find his footing.
There are not enough minutes.
Poor defensive work early in the game and seemed to lose its juice offensively.
Nurse tried out several bench players and when that didn’t work he quickly took them out, always picking starters when things got out of hand.
