Default I hope tonight's game (nov 28) is a sign of better D to come!

Our defense were great but kinda fallen off until the end of 3rd and near end of 4th. Been a long time since we play D this hard!

I liked how the Raptor players chased guys off the 3 point line more often. I know Johnson played like absolute crap but it's still somewhat encouraging to win without O'Neal. The Western Trip however has great potential to make me forget about that improvement though.

ATL didn't have Josh Smith either, although it's still an equal loss to each team.

If O'neal was there, we would be pounding the paint badly, their weakness is their frontcourt.

Is it so weak. We got lucky when JJ didn't hit those open 3 balls.

D looked great, really active. It's really all about energy and effort and it was all there the last couple games. Only thing i can't figure out is why Sam doesn't have all of his best defenders out there later in the game, when playing with a lead. Seeing Kapono out there makes me cringe. They need to continue to concentrate on defending in practice if they are gong to be successful. I remember Kevin Garnet saying last year that 80 percent of their practice time was defence related and for most of the first month all they practiced.
