above: THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR PASSES

A beaming Jrue Holiday even before he was signed to a 41 million dollar guaranteed contract (with attached bonus incentives) and subsequently given carte blanche with the basketball, a compliment of maitre d' "Hawkeye" Collins, who notices every crumb on the carpet as he briskly escorts clientele to tables. (Busboys Hawes, Allen and Brown have a busy winter ahead.)

@Raptors
Kyle Lowry returns to the #Raptors lineup tonight, but will not start according to head coach Dwane Casey.

Last 2:40 of quarter outscored 9-5 (with three of those on a bailout prayer from NYoung).

PHI 22. TOR 29. Raptors shooting has to cool off, no? Defense wasn't all bad, they just didn't contest shots as hard as they could. Offensive woes continue with not a lot of ball and player movement with what they've been calling play-wise so far.

annndddd Jrue gives it right back. Cheats too far down off Calderon. He cans a cross-court pass for 3.

Tie game at half. Defense still isn't up to par. And Jrue can't possibly carry them all game like this. Casey is sure to adjust and double him more often.

Mad scramble for the ball after JRich recv'd a postup entry pass. He lost balance or something and luckily kicked it out to Jrue but when he fell to toss the lucky pass out to Jrue, Lowry's foot was near his head but it looked like he just bumped it hard against the floor. No update yet.

Jrue's got a couple of guys that have shot well tonight in JRich and NYoung, he needs to look to set them up and stop forcing so much of his offense and just instead get it in the flow. This one on one is tiring to watch.

True, he looked vintage Monta Ellis most of the night though. 1st half, pretty good results. 3rd quarter and half of the 4th, not so much.

Heh, Doug went desperate with small ball and they couldn't adjust and wilted.

I don't know if POTG goes to NYoung, JRich, or Doug. heh

I'd say NYoung just because he accumulated some damn nice assists. But that is not to slight JRich in any way, he was terrific. Doug was the maestro tonight though.

THad steal!!!! annnnnnnddddddd for sure DAGGER! HA.

I love when they end up like this for the good guys. Was really worried and pessimistic there for a bit. Doug pulled the rabbit out of the hat when he pulled ET and I think Lavoy.

dont think turner played in crunch time

lol Nick Young: "I'm just glad I hit those shots. I didn't wanna hear Doug's mouth."

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Nov 20 at 21:27

Jrue could have had damn near 20 assists if he didn't fall into jack-mode so often. Only scored 4 pts in 2nd half but he took a heck of a lot of bad shots to get even that. I look at his line and go "hey, good night for the kid", but after actually witnessing it it sort of was really pissing me off even when he was knocking down those J's in the 1st half. Don't like possessions where he doesn't even let his teammates touch the ball.

Nick Young: Swaggy P came in and got the job done.
Malik: LOL, he's got to stay away from referring to himself in the 3rd person.

gotta love malik

12 assists to 3 turnovers for jrue
