Toronto is read hot to start the season. In fact they have never started a season 5-0, with a great chance to extend that start on Friday night.
Orlando is struggling as expected.
This is an interesting personnel group and tonight they are going to be without their best player Nikola Vucevic, which is why the lines on this one are hard to corral.
Last year’s playoff loss left a bitter taste in the Raptors mouth so they have retooled and recommitted to defense. So far the results have been impressive, most notably how they dominated the fourth quarter at OKC, even though they were in the second game of back to back.
The Raptors are playing smarter and more physically than they have over the last couple of seasons. They still have more than enough offensive firepower thanks to one of the best backcourts in the NBA.
For those of you unfamiliar that would be DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.
They are averaging more than 40ppg and shooting well. There are also signs that big man Jonas Valanciunas has progressed and he should be able to have a strong game tonight without have to guard Vucevic.
The style is a little more grinding than it was a year ago but this team needed to make some changes to have a better shot in the playoffs. So far so good.
For me, Orlando is one of those franchises, like Philly, where I don’t know that they are doing. They seem to always be in the lottery, drafting incomplete players and never really developing anyone.
The wins and losses prove that out.
The lone exception to that was Vucavic, who is out tonight. He was not a hot prospect out of USC but he has been a double-double guy in the NBA.
With Vucavic out that puts a lot of pressure on points to come from elsewhere. Thus far Evan Fournier has been leading the team in scoring but I am not a fan.
Someone puts the ball in the basket even for bad teams and he probably shouldn’t be a starter in this league.
Aaron Gordon should get more run with Vucavic out.
He is a high energy guy but his game is limited – they have a lot of those. He might be figuring out where his spots are in the NBA though.
