Host William Lou invites Joe Wolfond (@joey_doubleyou) to the podcast to break down this week in Raptors basketball.
The two discuss:
Budding Raptors-Celtics rivalry
-Are they rivals?
-Jonas Valanciunas: “They are racing for the second place, we are racing for first.”
-Who would win in a playoff series?
-“If your big guys don’t dominate, you have to go small,” Casey told ESPN’s Zach Lowe. “I tell Jonas (Valanciunas): ‘Oh, you want to play more? Then dominate. I don’t want to see fadeaways over 6-8 guys. Get to the rim. Get every offensive rebound. If not, you’re coming out.'”
-Since those comments: Valanciunas averaging 14.4 points, 11.6 rebounds
Previewing the week ahead
-Trading for Carmelo Anthony
-Jared Sullinger as a smallball center
-Will the offense hold up in the playoffs?
