When the Toronto Raptors’ G League affiliate, Raptors 905, started their season last month head coach Patrick Mutombo was adamant the best way to develop his players was through winning.

“I believe the best development is done as you win,” he said. “I told our team, listen, people are attracted to winners. If you win, you get Wholesale Toronto Raptors Jerseys people’s attention. We want to create an atmosphere, we want to create winning habits here.”

Well, the 905 finished the regular season 12-3, the best record in the league, and just like Mutombo said, people around the NBA have begun to take notice.

Multiple NBA teams including the Raptors, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs, and Phoenix Suns are all reportedly Cheap Alize Johnson Jersey interested in signing 905 star Alize Johnson, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor reported Monday.

The 24-year-old Johnson was drafted by the Indiana Pacers as a second-round pick in 2018 and joined the Raptors as a training camp invitee earlier this year. He was released by the team in late December but he signed a G League Cheap Alex Len Jersey contract to play with the 905 this season.

Through 15 games, the 6-foot-7 forward is putting up some freakish numbers. He’s averaging 16.6 points to go with 13.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.3 steals per game this season.

“He’s a full-throttle rebounder and defender with the versatility to defend both quicker and stronger players, meaning he could play on the wing alongside a true big or in the frontcourt in switch-heavy lineups,” O’Connor wrote.

Johnson certainly fits Toronto’s new small-ball style as a versatile wing who can rebound much better than his size would suggest and the Raptors do have an open roster spot after waiving Alex Len in January.

The 905 will commence their playoff run on Monday afternoon at 3:45 p.m. against the G League’s new prospect team, the G League Ignite.

The playoffs this season are a one-and-done playoff tournament and once the season is over Johnson will be a free agent who can sign with any NBA team.

Davis didn’t take DeAndre Bembry Jersey advantage of the promotion

Another boring shorthanded loss? Yep! With Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam out (along with Patrick McCaw and Malachi Flynn of course), the Toronto Raptors just don’t have enough good players to compete — even with mediocre teams like the Chicago Bulls. Hence, last night’s loss — Toronto’s fifth in a row.

There really isn’t much more to say Cheap Fred VanVleet Jersey at this point, other than to hope that those guys are healthy and able to come back soon.

1. Lineup Change
Last night, Nick Nurse switched up the Cheap OG Anunoby Jersey starting lineup, inserting Terence Davis for DeAndre Bembry.

Pre-game, I thought subbing in Davis was a good, but not great, move, to get more offense into the starting lineup. To be clear, I would rather Cheap Pascal Siakam Jersey not see Davis at all for off-the-court reasons, and on the court, well, he’s been generally awful. But since the team insists on keeping him around, starting him over Bembry or Stanley Johnson has some logic behind it, since Davis is — in theory! — more of an offensive Cheap Terence Davis Jersey threat. In addition, Bembry brings some level of playmaking to the second unit.

Unfortunately, Davis didn’t take advantage of the promotion last night, as Nurse brought Bembry off the bench less than three Cheap Chris Boucher Jersey minutes in. With six points and two assists combined between them, neither Davis nor Bembry did much in their new roles.

2. Bring Me Boucher
The real starting lineup change that Cheap Patrick McCaw Jersey needs to be made, of course, is subbing Chris Boucher in for Aron Baynes. In addition, I think the team needs to do a better job staggering Lowry, Powell and Boucher; two should be on the floor Cheap Stanley Johnson Jersey at all times. I recognize Boucher’s weaknesses from a rebounding and positioning standpoint, and I know he still picks up Cheap Paul Watson Jersey too many fouls. But his shooting and his ability to finish at the rim are much, much-needed right now.

And while I don’t mind the Baynes-Boucher pairing, I think playing Boucher at the four with Stanley Johnson at the small-ball five, a role Johnson Cheap Aron Baynes Jersey played fairly well at times earlier this season, might have some potential too.

(I can’t believe I’m even writing about this! Come back soon, OG and Pascal!)

3. Good D on LaVine, at Least
With Stanley Johnson, Paul Watson, and DeAndre’ Bembry taking turns, the Raptors did a pretty solid job containing Chicago’s All-Star, Zach LaVine. I was impressed Cheap DeAndre Bembry Jersey with Watson’s D on LaVine in particular — he guarded LaVine so tightly I thought for a minute the Raps had gone box-and-1! LaVine only scored seven points on six shots.

Although the Raptors collectively still aren’t playing great team defense, it’s been nice to see these guys continue to play solid man-to-man D.

4. Forcing It
The other night I called out one impressive sequence where the Raptors ran through a set, swung the ball around the perimeter Cheap Henry Ellenson Jersey and found the right shot with passing. And I recalled how little we’d seen such action this season.

This was surely on display last night, as the Raptors looked incredibly stagnant in their offense. Everything seemed forced, and when players did Cheap Malachi Flynn Jersey probe the defense, rarely did it seem the ball was kicked out to an open man.

It’s easy to keep saying, “yeah but they’re missing three guys” but the guys that are in there have to be able to manage the basics, right? You don’t need to be an All-Star to keep the ball moving!

5. At Least We Have Jack
These games are not fun to watch, but when Jack Armstrong is on, at least they’re entertaining to listen to! Jack was in his typical form last night, complaining about calls and no-calls, recalling the Niagara days, wondering aloud why the WNBA isn’t in Canada, using about listening to tunes while golfing, and of course, throwing out all the classics from GTGOH to “Bonjour!” It’s also highly entertaining to hear him try Toronto Raptors Jerseys and cover his disgust at some of the Raptors’ defensive effort and poor offensive execution.

I don’t know where we’d be without Jack.

********

There really isn’t much of a bright side here to share, so we’ll remain hopeful that these extra reps will do guys like Henry Ellenson and Paul Watson good, and cross our fingers that the team is healthy again soon.

Tuesday is a big day worldwide, with the most anticipated U.S. election in years taking place. North of the border, it’s also a day to reflect on an important sporting anniversary.

For 25 years earlier — Nov. 3, 1995 — the NBA officially arrived in Canada, with the Toronto Raptors taking on the New Jersey Nets at SkyDome.

The Raptors won 94-79, with former all-star Cheap Alvin Robertson Jersey starring with 30 points and future rookie-of-the-year Cheap Damon Stoudamire Jersey turning the negative opinions of fans — who had booed him on draft night — around by notching his first of 86 double-doubles with Toronto.

Sporting white pin-striped jerseys adorned in the front with a large red dinosaur, the Raptors showed more than 33,000 fans what the best professional basketball players in the world could do. Well, kind of. It was a far different era for hoops. The play was more rugged, three-pointers were largely an after-thought (the teams combined for five treys on just 19 attempts), and defence was prioritized and emphasized through the rules of the day. The Nets shot a putrid 33% from the field overall and committed 29 turnovers against only 15 assists.

After Toronto Raptors guard Cheap Kyle Lowry Jersey suffered a sprained left ankle in the first quarter of the team’s Game 4 win over the Brooklyn Nets, questions began to loom surrounding his availability for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Boston Celtics.

According to former Raptors guard and Sportsnet analyst Cheap Alvin Williams Jersey, there is no question – Lowry’s playing.

“I actually talked to Kyle this morning, he was feeling – he didn’t say he was feeling good – but he was like ‘I’m alright,'” Williams said on Sportsnet Monday. “You know Kyle – ‘I’m alright, I’ll be ready to go.'”

“So, that was the biggest thing,” Williams added. “We all know Kyle and how he gets down and his pedigree and that drive and his pain tolerance. All of the things that make him a champion and makes him who he is. I’m 99.9% sure he’ll be ready to play, as he expressed when I talked to him earlier today.”

Williams essentially echoed the sentiment of head coach Nick Nurse, who told reporters after Game 4 that “it’s gonna take something pretty serious to keep him out. You know how tough he is.”

Per the team’s official release, Lowry’s “condition will be updated as appropriate,” meaning we’ll get a better idea of his status for Game 1 once injury reports are made available.

The Raptors looked far more impressive, with the troubled veteran Robertson turning in what would be his highest-scoring game with the team and Stoudamire showing some of what was to come.

From an unsolicited expansion bid submitted to the NBA by future Raptors owner Larry Tanenbaum and his Palestra group in 1992, to a successful bid by a John Bitove-led group a year later, to the reveal of the team name in May 1994 (Raptors beat out fellow finalists Dragons and Bobcats), the Nov. 3 debut had been a long time coming.

The Toronto Huskies had played a single season in 1946 in the Basketball Association of America. The Buffalo Braves had spent some time in town too, and there had been NBA exhibition games held at Maple Leaf Gardens or SkyDome from the 1970s to the 1990s. But these were few and far between, leaving a small, but dedicated faction of basketball diehards with precious little to satisfy their hoop cravings.

That’s what made the arrival of the Raptors — and their ill-fated expansion cousins in Vancouver, who also started off with a Nov. 3 win — so thrilling and eagerly anticipated.

“This place is going to be packed with 30,000 people. A lot of them are not basketball fans,” original Raptors head coach Brendan Malone said on the eve of the game.

“It’s going to be a happening. The NBA back here in Toronto, and they are here so they can tell their children or whatever that they were at the Toronto SkyDome on Nov. 3, 1995, for the Toronto Raptors first game, like I was at the first game ever for the New York Mets at Shea Stadium,” he said.

“I’ll always remember that. It’s something you can always reflect on. You can say, ‘Hey, I was there.’”

The Grizzlies might not have made it, but the Raptors are still here. They have been a huge success story, becoming Canada’s basketball team and the 2019 league champions.
