Manage episode 307287682 series 1710280
In Episode 1058, Sean Woodley and Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) recap the Raptors' 118-113 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night. They first dig into their biggest takeaway from the game, which is all about Toronto's slippage on the defensive end in recent games. They discuss why the Blazers' three-guard look was particularly troublesome for the Raptors, and why their lack of chemistry really showed when they switched up their defense to send two to Damian Lillard at the top of the pick-and-roll. Is it just a matter of time before the team comes together on the defensive end? And is there a chance the offense is good enough to allow them to dial back the defensive aggression a bit? Next, Sean and Vivek talk about the promising offensive signs from the Raptors' small-ball starting five from Monday night, and the success Pascal Siakam had as a short roll operator. Lastly, they hand out the Dude of the Game to a guy who's just begging to help Nick Nurse ease the minutes load on Fred VanVleet's shoulders. It is the segment everyone is talking about!
