Powerful evening on each ends. Was not a distinction maker on Kevin Durant and he missed his first 5 triples. Should alter offensively with Siakam returning.
S. Barnes31 MIN, 8 PTS, 7 REB, 4 AST, 5 STL, 4-7 FG, 0-1 3FG, 0- FT, 0 BLK, 1 TO, -7 +/-

F. VanVleet41 MIN, 21 PTS, 3 REB, 8 AST, 2 STL, 6-14 FG, 3-8 3FG, 6- FT, 0 BLK, 1 TO, -11 +/-

Was spectacular along with his restricted minutes. Was within the closing group in lieu of Siakam who was on a minutes restriction. Had a foolish turnover on the finish of the sport that squashed any comeback try although.

Performed 21 quiet minutes. Missed a pair threes and had his go guarding Harden a pair instances.
Protection was tough at present attempting to comprise Brooklyn’s two stars. The rotation was tremendous, as Nurse managed to maintain collectively the bench unit.
Issues We Noticed
Blake Griffin the sharpshooter? He hit 4 threes, the bulk from the nook.
Raps shot 7/29 from three. That’s not going to win you a lot video games.
Kevin Durant, as traditional, was unstoppable. I really feel like he shoots 100% on his midrange pull ups. Has arguably the most effective jumper within the league. Raps threw nearly everybody at him defensively however he nonetheless powered his technique to 31 factors. Brooklyn went with a bunch of KD/Harden decide and rolls late which had been robust to deal with.
Man, that finish of first half sequence was wild. Boucher steal and slam, Barnes steal and slam adopted by FVV carving up Patty Mills for a troublesome layup to place them up 7. Protection to offense. A Raptors specialty.
