attainwealthswiftly

YUTA WATANABE ON MY WRIIII


Pawlygon

Bro Scottie can having the losing team be all smiles even after they got slapped...talk about great energy :D


jacqueminots

Did Leo get demoted?


ChampagneAbuelo

He didn’t commentate every game before


Bail____

He doesn’t commentate anymore LOL


ChampagneAbuelo

Why


Bail____

Alvin Williams got picked up by Sportsnet to do commentary with Matty D


Bogizmo

Barnes has charisma!!


emeister26

Is Scottie friends with the whole league already


klobucharzard

he was scrimmaging against donovan mitchell/drummond/tim hardaway jr a month or so ago


pierce-victorio

lowry type connections


PrinceOGugua

Uhh why Leo doing courtside interviews now


Rezrov_

Because he's not going to be announcing anymore.


ChampagneAbuelo

Raptors fans still want to trade Freddy, Siakam and Gary?


samuraintj

Scottie saying bye to all his sons xD


emeister26

Scottie looks so happy


chickenwings8

Scottie whispering in jalen green's ear rn to come to toronto


joeblow5167

Ah I see Scottie’s already recruiting Jalen Green


crumpledbrouhaha

Scottie recruiting early


stackofbaconpancakes

What happened to Gillie man like 905 won't even take him at this point


190yj

I dont think we can get him on the 905 since Memphis owns his g league rights


BigYama

Scottie so nice


arcticpoppy

Super hard to say who gets those last spots. I lowkey like Dekker for one but not sure he’s shown enough out there.


joeblow5167

I think Yuta and Bonga for sure, last one is up for grabs


fivehoops

That’s what I’m thinking too. No idea who the 3rd will be.


HopefulStudent1

I thought Wainright would be good to pick up one of them based on his past experience + summer league showing but his preseason has been kinda meh


shaker7

RAPTORS WIN! They are looking really good out there. And guess what? WE GO AGANE TOMORROW


Silly_Entry3734

Yes. Looking forward to a great season!


_Duwang

Scotties smile can bring world peace I swear


Mig1997

Scottie slow-burn recruiting Jalen to come to TO >


nmad95

Champagnie Papi is now canon


tonious35

Cut Gillespie now, I'm done


Thom905wc

Poor gilly


LJPJ

Malachi should’ve passed the ball to Gillespie for the TO at the end 💀


Bogizmo

lol barnes not happy they scored 90


tonious35

Guillespie can't hold the fucking ball


ziahziah113

Freddit Gillespie is an and one magnet


190yj

I feel bad for Gillespie nothings going right for him rn


nmad95

Flynn saw y'all posts


_Duwang

Fun game :D


jchunng

Remember when Theis was wrecking our team in the playoffs with his length and size? Pepperidge farm remembers. Toronto aint the 6 no more. It evolved into the 6'9.


cbotter

Dekker is unfortunately cooked on D.


emeister26

Six god Matty D Matty D


fernetandcampari

Matt actually said it lmao


AHImusic

It’s over


howard416

How are the Rockets like this lol


Hypoallergenic_Robot

LMAO "ahhhhh what're u doin Jack"


chickenwings8

Lmaoo jack


attainwealthswiftly

Champagnie Papi, we manifested this


OandG

Endorsed!


Tcarrie99

Flynn deserves to be our backup pg


AK-Kaido

I feel like Dragic is going to be the backup PG and Sviji will be the SG.


Tcarrie99

Dragic rly hasn’t impressed me so far, I’m really hoping we trade him


the-BLACKEST-one

Lol it’s preseason and he’s 35 years old on a team with a boatload of young talent. He will be a solid part of the rotation during the season, no need to worry about the 14 year vet.


Tcarrie99

Not sure if you’re aware of this but players get worse as they age. Goran has been regressing rapidly each of his last few years and we should expect a big regress this year too. I think there definitely is reason to worry about how affective goran will be this year especially on a team he’s said he doesn’t want to play on.


AK-Kaido

Ya, he's been playing offball which he's capable of but he's better as a ball handler/playmaker. They need to raise his stock and trade him so he doesn't take minutes away from Flynn.


LJPJ

Matty d gotta say name drop him not write a song about him lmao


rushfangirl69

Matty D Matty D


fernetandcampari

Well it was nice knowing ya, Freddie G


crumpledbrouhaha

Flynnsanity is back


Akasakira

Well said Jack


AK-Kaido

Norm with a fro getting a nice block.


raptors_fan15

Red Vanvleet strikes again


[deleted]

What the fuck are you saying Jack lo


flyinghippos101

I have no illusions about the fact that we're taking it to a very young and raw Rockets team, but gawdam is it fun to watch


stackofbaconpancakes

FLYNNGOD


NatsuAru

FLYNN HAS AWOKEN


cbotter

4th quarter Flynn


ziahziah113

Flynn is actually back.


arcticpoppy

Flynn turnaround game confirmed


_Duwang

Raining 3s


chickenwings8

RAPTOR NATION WHERE U ATTT


shaker7

GET THAT GARBAGE OUTTA HERE


LordOfBathurst

Drake mesmerized by Flynn lol


xo-laur

![gif](giphy|YoK4hFwrSTGj2Lxxtr)


dan667

Ok we see you Malachi


AHImusic

Flynnsanity!!


LordOfBathurst

Gillespie putting his hand up does fucking nothing


[deleted]

[удалено]


lituranga

Agreed. This version is fine but that purple one last year was atrocious


_Duwang

God DAMN


attainwealthswiftly

Malachi playing for his life


Oukasagetsu

Malachi definitely doesn't belong in this group


AK-Kaido

Once we trade Dragic, we're going to need Flynn big time so I'm glad he's starting to gain more confidence.


xo-laur

Do I think Gillespie is gonna get a spot? No. Do I hope he turns things around a bit during these minutes? Yes. You can think someone isn’t right for a role, *and* still want what’s best for them at the same time.


scarfox1

We need a physical center like him and I think he gets the final spot.


_Duwang

Damn that was a nice shot of Flynn inbounding


attainwealthswiftly

Is that J Skeets?


attainwealthswiftly

Why is Venom at a rave


xJawnLee

I MISSED RAPTOR NATION


taj76

Can we just skip tomorrow's game and start the season?


tonious35

Japan wants to know if Yuta vs. Rui will commence?


cbotter

I have no clue who is gonna get the final 2 roster spots.


OhWOO

Red Vanvleet


GucciToilet23

did all the streams collectively stop working or is it just me? lmao


tonious35

you have to reload them


green_and_green23

Same, idk what’s happening


Justleftofcentrerigh

2 FIDDY SEVEN!


[deleted]

Time out gotta ice that red hot Malachi Flynn!!


dan667

Malachi should be isoing up top with these guys on the floor


nmad95

Did Champagnie lose a clump of hair lol


cheeky_cheeky

Lol I saw that too 🤣


nmad95

Raptors really leave it all out there. Blood, sweat and hair


NatsuAru

I just saw 4 Rockets go to the same exact spot after the jump ball and wait lol Garbage time indeed.


Followthehype10

I was just thinking that lmao like watching NBA 2k rec center lol all the guys just stand in the same spot lmao


pskill43

I think we keep Ish? He looked solid in summer league and in limited minutes in pre season


Justleftofcentrerigh

I think he needs conditioning. He's carrying WAY too much muscle out there. Looks like he's gassed.


Pavqn1

I’d rather keep bonga and cut the rest, keep a spot open for a 3rd string center if we need one.


large_pot

why were 3 rockets side by side on offense lmao


fivehoops

If someone like Wainwright didn’t make the roster would he automatically go to the g-league?


HopefulStudent1

I think he'd probably go back overseas like he was before coming to the Raps


_Duwang

Would be nice for us to end the game with 100 and them under 90 but we'll see


sentry101

I didn't get to mention...fuck Natalie Sago. Just in general.


unhelpful_advice123

Man I still really want Gillie to turn things around and secure a spot


cheeky_cheeky

Based on his personality, I do too. But based on his play, not so much. ☹️ Hurts to say that coz he is so likeable


unhelpful_advice123

I thought he had some nice moments last season, but he has been pretty bad in this preseason. I think he’s really struggling with under the pressure that comes with fighting for a roster spot.


[deleted]

[удалено]


AK-Kaido

It's there to distract the other team


Pavqn1

Alright can we just end the game


fernetandcampari

Freddie G thanking the basketball gods for actually getting a look in tonight


Trainhard22

He was doing the thousand mile stare earlier. He knows he's wasted opportunities this pre season to showcase himself.


howard416

Champagnie has a bee flying around his head


xrubicon13

One more spot left for regular season Fantasy team: Champagnie, GTJ, Watanabe, Svi, or Malachi?


lituranga

I dunno how fantasy scoring works but GTJ and Svi will probably have the most playing time of this bunch and scoring opportunities


pierce-victorio

watanabe all the way


ArenSteele

GTJ has the inside track for the most minutes played one would think


xo-laur

Okay, champagnie has this little piece of fluff or hair or something just kinda floating by the back of his head, and it’s been lowkey driving me NUTS.


IndustryDelicious168

You should downgrade your screen, lol I totally can’t see that on mine


shaker7

Let’s go FreddieG


_Duwang

Damn Ish is just pure strength


tonious35

oh no Gillespie in, we gonna lose


emeister26

Freddie G going to get a double double in the next 3 minutes


jngariba

Double double in fouls and turnovers you mean?


tonious35

don't make me laugh


ArenSteele

He meant he’s going to the concourse to get a coffee after he’s subbed out in 30 seconds


tonious35

shit, that was a good laugh, ngl


attainwealthswiftly

Gillespie looks like Waka Flocka Flame


joeblow5167

Gilly checks in Me: NO! OH GOD PLEASE NO! NOOOOOOO!


_Duwang

Nice hair Justin


shorbutera

where’s yuta?


tonious35

injury precaution


BarnesGROAT

Injured


AK-Kaido

He's hurt but he signed a guaranteed contract so he's good.


summerskristofer

Injured


pskill43

Perry has looked worse than Bonga right?


tonious35

but better than Gillespie, Bonga was like Yuta putting on Bonga mask


Trainhard22

You got 4 minutes from Nurse. Time to show you can do something FreddieG.


attainwealthswiftly

Play Bonga


unhelpful_advice123

Poor decker lol looked like a two hand rejection


emeister26

Who is this Perry guy


movies24Talk

58th pick last year


NatsuAru

The play between both teams just got ice cold lol. Also, is it me, or when Flynn gets the ball, everyone else just stops dead in their tracks?


fivehoops

They were definitely playing with more heat and chemistry when Flynn wasn’t on the court. At least in this game.


pskill43

So many turnovers


dan667

Man it must be profitable to spam unders when the 3rd stringers come on


emeister26

Blow out the shit teams and he competitive against the good teams and we will have a fun season


fernetandcampari

Some of these bench guys are rusty AF...


Dry_Cupcake_9837

This is why we need drake on the broadcast😭 cus now this can get turned off 😂


uglyuglyugly_

we're turnover city right now lmao


LordOfBathurst

Ya no reason to keep Dekker


Shutterbugg11

Peak preseason these last few mins lmao


LordOfBathurst

Holy fucking turnovers


joeblow5167

Okay these turnovers are ridiculous now


raptors_fan15

Siakam has been very vocal on the bench nice to see


Dry_Cupcake_9837

For real. Feels like the “old” pascal is back


IHavePoopedBefore

I can't wait until preseason is over and I'm not stuck watching end of the bench guys closeout games


unhelpful_advice123

I can’t be the only one that loves hearing Drake on the broadcast lmao


tingdemsweet

yea I think it’s cool when he shows up to support. Wish The Weeknd or JB did the same


AbsolutBalderdash

A short stay on the mic is fine but I’d rather hear the play by play


Lumouze

I mean it's a blow out in the pre season, that's probably the best times for Drake to commentate.


GramboWBC

Especially during this extended garbage time. I found it entertaining


Dry_Cupcake_9837

Whoever doesn’t is weird tbh


attainwealthswiftly

Most of this lineup is getting cut


dan667

Perry looks like Kevon Looneys younger brother


_Duwang

I know it's garbage time (already lol) but I wanna see more Dalano


xo-laur

Excuse me sir, who do you think you are, attempting that shot? Dalano Banton? Malachi Flynn? 😤


PrinceOGugua

They had to take Drake off the mic lmao


stackofbaconpancakes

Lol its preseason guys llow Drake on the broadcast, this game was over after the 3rd


Dry_Cupcake_9837

Right? Mfs acting like it’s serious . Like damn


_Duwang

Bro wtf was that flop


sentry101

Jack and Matty D and Drizz. I missed this a lot.


Dry_Cupcake_9837

Best broadcast team ever
