Default Lowry and DeRozan shooting badly in first round vs Pacers (thru 4 games)

Between them they are shooting 38% for the series and averaging 15.5 and 14.3 points respectively.

“We just stink right now when it comes to me and Kyle,” DeRozan said. “We haven’t let it frustrate us. We haven’t complained. We are not whining. It’s all part of the game. You go through your ups and downs, but it’s all about how you figure it out and the process it takes to get out of that. We do what we are supposed to do, all this be erased.”

All this is the angst that surrounds the struggles of the two most important Raptors.

It's do or die with them the rest of the way. Better do it tonight.


EDIT - Feed Big Val, start JT, run them off the 3 point line, contain George, and limit turnovers/fast break opportunities... eventually, the shots should fall... one would hope anyways.

After the thrilling come from behind victory of game 5 ... two questions still remain...

Not questions in a "negative sense", I am hopeful they will progress to the 2nd round.

I am not doubting their skill and their effort.

1) Does the high usage rate during the regular season contribute to both their tiredness - weary - in ability to keep up the flow...?

It seems obvious that D and L are physically tired.

Indiana D is keyed on the two of them. Further they are trying to run the guys ragged on O by using a lot of pick and rolls against D & K.

2) To correct the over usage of the back court "next season" for a really deep run in the playoffs the Raps need a consistent 3rd...

3rd option 3rd scorer 3rd threat.


Who is that and wouldn't that be great!
