Yeah, the Raptors have some injury issues. They don't exactly play the same position but their are more "guard minutes" available, I would imagine. Hopefully, he knocks down a few 3's tonight.Matt may get his chance to shine with Lowry out and the Lakers being pretty suffocating on defense thus far.
Van Vleet just moves to point and leaves 20-30 minutes open off the ball.Yeah, the Raptors have some injury issues. They don't exactly play the same position but their are more "guard minutes" available, I would imagine. Hopefully, he knocks down a few 3's tonight.
He put up some numbers in the G League opener. I hope he gets on an NBA court soon.Last week (when the games were still unblocked on DirecTV) I watched all the Laker games.
They said THT was almost ready from his foot issue.
They may not shake things up right now but it’s the NBA grind and if you’ve got a uni you’ll get time somewhere along the line.
These guys get beat to **** in a 100 game season.
First 2 point basket of the year I believe.I am getting kind of fanboy feelings about Matt Thomas. What a story and how far he has come. The Raptors lost Kawhi and Danny Green and then had to play at the Lakers without Ibaka and Lowry against a squad with A. Davis, K. Kuzma, D. Green and someone named LeBron James and Toronto won, 113-104.
Matty's numbers weren't overwhelming but he played quality minutes (you can see him in highlights in crunch time in the 4th): 15 MIN, 5 PTS, 2-3 FG, 1-2 3 PT, 2 AST, 0 TO. (He missed his only FT though - how did that happen?).
Check out the work he does to hit this buzzer beater:
Glad to be of some service (it's not like I have any insider info on ISU recruits). It's fun having some guys to keep track of. So far, I haven't seen much; I may have to get NBA TV back on my system.Thanks @I-stateTheTruth for your updates!! I haven't watched as much NBA action yet this year. Hopefully Matt and Georges can utilize the minutes they are getting to solidify their places in the line up. I'm gonna try and watch the Raptors tonight.
I was one of those guys that followed NBA stuff "from afar" after Hornacek and Hoiberg were out of the league. Now? I regularly check out the game box scores and NBA news due to the Cyclones in the league. BTW, I wish Abdul and Burton could begin making more of an impact for the Thunder.
