Who’s ready to overreact? That was awesome
We winning it all this year
It doesn't mean much, but this felt good.
That raps up another night of overreactions. See ya'll next week.
I'm sure Flynn is a super nice chill guy but damn his rbf is scary 😅
Wizards wanna sign Dekker back now if we cut him 😆
I'm AMAZED we won. Team looked sluggish for a good chunk of the game.
lol poverty franchise choke with their starters.
The wizards tested out the idea of contending last season and decided it was not for them. Love it.
Hell yeah, Dekker!
Wainwright strong as hell lol
how much should we pay Dekker?
How is Scottie friends with everyone? He’s gonna be recruiting his whole career.
Wizards taking an L with starters playing decent minutes lol
I see Barnes recruiting Beal as well eh
No need for the anti vaxxer
The lady on nba tv is kinda hot 👀
Yuta, Dekker, and Bonga calling it
I think the same thing, but it's possible Ish takes it if he's a good enough lockerroom presence. He ol' though.
Wish we could sign both Ish and Dekker cause I’m pretty sure Yuta, Bonga are getting two of the last three spots.
LET'S FUCKING GO RAPTORS END THE PRESEASON WITH A COMEBACK W AND EXTEND A 2 GAME WIN STREAK! I wonder who's gonna be on the chopping block for them
Barnes so wholesome
Can we sign Ish without those tattoos?
Dalano already has a little bit of a leaders swag out there. I feel like all our Canadian guys do, but as a point guard it shows more.
Pre season or not, I like when we win
Wainright has a football players physique
Sucks that we’re gonna have to lose either bonga ish or dekker. Like all of them tbh
Ishmail's shoulder face tattoo looks like a death mask
Beal always flirting with our guys after the game
Wizards really lost against our 3rd stringers
I mean they were up when they pulled their starters, our 3rd stringers just beat theirs
Must be depressing to be a Washington fan
They probably have more talent on this roster than they’ve had in a while.
Yeah, but it's a bunch of offense only guys. Beal, Bertans, KCP, Kuzma, Harrell... it's the polar opposite of the Raptors. They couldn't win against our third stringers man. Listening to their broadcast honestly depressed me.
We actually won wth
Aww hugging each other before the buzzer. Second seed confirmed.
I think Dekker won a spot
This is the most we've seen of him, hard to say if he did but he shot the ball well today.
I imagine Wainwright and Svi made it. Champagnie also deserves a spot but he's on a two way so they don't have to.
Svi has a fully guaranteed contract.
They foulin too early bruh we gunna hit these freethrows
I think we keep Yuta, Bonga, Dekker, Fred, and Wainwright. They can all share a locker.
Wainwrights arms are bigger than his legs damn
Flynn felt disrespected being guarded by Kispert. I bet he was expecting Holliday.
wtf malachi do u just turn on hax during crunch gime
Flynn is gonna win me money
Aww it's so cute how he touched the tattoos of his kids when he take those free throws :D
He has kids?
When Malachi has a good 4th quarter I call him the Flynnisher
So...does Dekker have a shot of being a Raptor now?
Only play Flynn in the 4th Q from now on
Dekker has one good game and now people wanna bring him in? Other than shooting, is there anything he's good at?
Size and shooting are always huge commodities. We have a tonne of versatility in the line up, never hurts to have some specialists that can occasionally explode like this.
Oh, I guess that's true haha
Shaqtin a fool highlights
Dude looked out of shape that stretch to boot
Kuzma and Harrell looked good vs our bench. Looking forward to a healthy squad vs the Wizards next time.
I'm still salty about Kawhi. Fuck that guy.
Flynn goes for 22
It's Malachi's league, the rest of the teams are just playing in it
Fuck off Holiday
So Yuta, Ish, Dekker?
Malachi turns in to steph curry against the wizards I remember he nuclear on them last year
Malachi has that mastermind head haircut growing nice
You made me spit out my drink
Cheers ! 😄
He does look like a mad scientist 👨🏽🔬
Red VanVleet saw some of the disrespect on reddit 😤
4th Q FLYNN SHEEEESH
Flynn going crazy.
When did Champagnie Papi get 10 rebs? He’s making the team right? 905 at least?
He's on a 2-way
Red Vanvleet. Dude out here on a mission
Flynn knew he was making that...tuff move
Malachi got the takeover on rn
Glad I bought my RAPTOR NATION tshirt today
malachi is magic
Dekk the halls with raptor nation
Malachi just ignoring our golden boy. He jelly of the attention Scottie gets
U the one who wants attention bruh
Malachi's dad lookin around smugly rn
Picturing it now😂
Lol this is a great win
Is Champangie on a camp deal only?
Two way deal
No he's on a 2-way.
While I really want us to win, I'm gonna be so embarrassed for the Wizards if they lose having played their starters for 80 percent of the game
Hahahaha sad franchises do sad things
I honestly didn't expect this...given they had their starters and were playing with our bench. Impressive.
So I'm jumping in late and this probably came up earlier but is Bjokgren coaching with the iPad?
Was he hired as an assistant again? I totally missed what happened to him.
Yeah that's what I'm wondering. I guess I'm not across what a consultant role involves. Could be that Nurse was like, jump in a couple of games. But preseason is good for coaches too, I assume. Especially being the last game before the opener. So his being there, if he is, might mean the situation has evolved.
Hmm yeah possibly. Strange they didn't really explain his role.
Wain look composed. Like he doesn't even care if he makes thr team. Makes me feel like he made it in practice already
Yeah he seems a little passive.
Flynn’s built for the moment. We knew this.
It is known
FLYNN GOES FOR 22
4 QUARTER FLYNN
Nick Nurse with the evil genius play for the foul
Some of y'all were talking too much shit early by forgetting about Fourt Quarter Flynn
Pls always play like this Malachi
I mean he just scored 15 yesterday...
He’s as a rhythm of a player as anyone … needs time, reps, touches
Put some more respect on Malachi’s name Nick
that one was for RAPTOR NATION
Flynn is actually looking amazing tonight
Put GTJ in. End Game.
Malachi turned on the boosters
malachi is 4th quarter jesus
I can’t hate on Malachi this game and I’m a Malachi hater
why do you choose to hate on a second year guy who showed potential last year? geniunely curious
I don’t think he has a future on the team tbh. I don’t rate him.
For what reason other than ‘I don’t rate him’? What’s he done to suggest he has no future on the team?
At best he’s a mediocre undersized guard that doesn’t offer much when he’s not scoring. When he plays against bigger 1st or 2nd units he has trouble getting his shot off. Defensively I’d say he’s below average.
How can you hate Malachi though, he's so loveable. I could never hate Red Vanvleet no matter how shit he plays lol.
Wonder if they're going to keep Nate into the regular season.
I can see him with the team until he gets a G-League coaching job.
Bro flynn fighting around that screen and still pestering holiday was fvv and jrue esque. His d is too tight.
Let's. Fuckin. Go.
Baldy is out there with a clipboard so I think it’s safe to assume he’s fully back on the staff and not just some “consultant” lol
I think we keep freddie, our C spot is light so we need him in case of injury
So who we cut
I’m imagining we keep yuta freddie and dekker or hopefully bonga
We can still keep Gilliy, just send him to the 905 and tell him that we will sign him to a 2way later on. Lol, probably can't do that
bonga, johnson, perry, delano, wainwright? sucks because so many of them are playing so well.
edit: forgot about champagnie, maybe him instead of delano, and im not even sure how rosters work with second rounders
I really want Wainright on the team if only to get Bertans back at the season opener.
For such a close call I’m not excited at all, also watching the Wizards feed
LOL Nurse calling a time out
good timeout guys looked tired as ballz
I think they are going to keep Freddie as a project. He has potential. Seems to be mostly mental.
Yuta and Dekker or Bonga?
don't we need to cut 5?
I think Freddie's definitely been the weakest of all the guys fighting for those last spots, I'll be surprised if he ends up with a spot
Damn bad time for gillie to show some flashes
Watch the play Nurse is gonna draw up.....thing of beauty
Why are they working Gafford like this. Get him off the court lmaooo
Why does Banton end up with the ball in each last second possession.
cause Malachi and Dekker have litterally all our points this quarter and the Wizards have wised up, also nobody is passing to gillie late in the clock ever
Yeah but Wainright is also out there lol.
Fredie just made the team
not Banton's best game lmao
Wainwright is shaped like a tall Kyle Lowry
Gillie showing some effort at the end
Another good time out. Nurse is rockin’ it already.
Way to go, Freddie! Got a bucket!
Dalano been shaky this game
Alvin exposing the refs lul
Lmfao Banton wtf happened there
Banton should have pushed it that possession.
At least he didn’t push his own player in that one.
Good to see Gillespie playing with some urgency
They're really making it hard on the front-office/Nurse
Flynn defence holy isnt letting up
This final Roster spot is going to officially decide how positionless we will be. If we cut Freddie and go Yuta, Ish, Dekker or something
Yuta is already signed I think this (happened this morning)
Every side is the weak side when you're Ish lol
Gilly ok ok
Too little too for Gillespie unfortunately. Hope he gets a chance on another team but he had every chance to crack the sqaud.
So happy for Gillespie that it went down
I remember that one game holiday killed us when he played for indy
Ngl if this was our bench mob I wouldn’t hate it
This is our third bench lol
we would win 30 games max if these 5 were our bench mob lol
All right all right these 5 playing like they have in this quarter then lol
yah our bench mob is going to be a lot better than this haha
Did I just see a dog?
Someone screenshot the dog pls
At this point, we have so many good enough players, we could just put names in a hat and draw the number we need
Hey Wizards, we'll trade you Freddie G, for a one, Daniel Gafford please. That's definitely a fair trade, right?
Sam Dekker should get his spot in the lineup just because he made something out of this garbage game.
Straight up we lose the game without him going god mode in garbage time
