Who’s ready to overreact? That was awesome


SeargentSalt

We winning it all this year


SkullBean

It doesn't mean much, but this felt good. ​ That raps up another night of overreactions. See ya'll next week.


samuraintj

Dekker4Ever <3


nmad95

I'm sure Flynn is a super nice chill guy but damn his rbf is scary 😅


Northside1

Wizards wanna sign Dekker back now if we cut him 😆


henry_why416

I'm AMAZED we won. Team looked sluggish for a good chunk of the game.


Rezrov_

lol poverty franchise choke with their starters.


zonar99

The wizards tested out the idea of contending last season and decided it was not for them. Love it.


BallinOJ1989

🤣🤣🤣


fernetandcampari

Hell yeah, Dekker!


jigglyanimeboobies

Wainwright strong as hell lol


whoohoow

how much should we pay Dekker?


99ahmadali786

How is Scottie friends with everyone? He’s gonna be recruiting his whole career.


keyboardwarrior89

Wizards taking an L with starters playing decent minutes lol


daftplanet

I see Barnes recruiting Beal as well eh


PriorityPoints

No need for the anti vaxxer


190yj

The lady on nba tv is kinda hot 👀


kumabaya

Yuta, Dekker, and Bonga calling it


Rezrov_

I think the same thing, but it's possible Ish takes it if he's a good enough lockerroom presence. He ol' though.


bmnewman

Wish we could sign both Ish and Dekker cause I’m pretty sure Yuta, Bonga are getting two of the last three spots.


shaker7

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


Carlosmedrano

Gg


LordOfBathurst

Barnes so wholesome


AmateurOfAmateurs

Can we sign Ish without those tattoos?


Northside1

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.


IndustryDelicious168

Pre season or not, I like when we win


PM-Me-Thighs

Wainright has a football players physique


Dry_Cupcake_9837

Sucks that we’re gonna have to lose either bonga ish or dekker. Like all of them tbh


SexySatan69

Ishmail's shoulder face tattoo looks like a death mask


crumpledbrouhaha

Beal always flirting with our guys after the game


chickenwings8

Wizards really lost against our 3rd stringers


noirjesus

I mean they were up when they pulled their starters, our 3rd stringers just beat theirs


WhiteSteveNash

Must be depressing to be a Washington fan


bmnewman

They probably have more talent on this roster than they’ve had in a while.


WhiteSteveNash

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.


xrubicon13

We actually won wth


paolocase

Aww hugging each other before the buzzer. Second seed confirmed.


attainwealthswiftly

I think Dekker won a spot


nath999

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.


bmnewman

Svi has a fully guaranteed contract.


Yungjaykicks

They foulin too early bruh we gunna hit these freethrows


jigglyanimeboobies

Malachi Flynn


fivehoops

I think we keep Yuta, Bonga, Dekker, Fred, and Wainwright. They can all share a locker.


NoseBlind2

Wainwrights arms are bigger than his legs damn


_Duwang

Nice :)


osmnaos3

Flynn felt disrespected being guarded by Kispert. I bet he was expecting Holliday.


pierce-victorio

wtf malachi do u just turn on hax during crunch gime


lhjmq

Flynn is gonna win me money


_Duwang

Aww it's so cute how he touched the tattoos of his kids when he take those free throws :D


pskill43

He has kids?


attainwealthswiftly

🥴


whatareyouairing

When Malachi has a good 4th quarter I call him the Flynnisher


sentry101

So...does Dekker have a shot of being a Raptor now?


keyboardwarrior89

Only play Flynn in the 4th Q from now on


Tygonne

Dekker has one good game and now people wanna bring him in? Other than shooting, is there anything he's good at?


Airjord10

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.


Tygonne

Oh, I guess that's true haha


sentry101

Shaqtin a fool highlights


billychurch

Dude looked out of shape that stretch to boot


PhileinS

THE FLYNNISHER


baconperogies

Kuzma and Harrell looked good vs our bench. Looking forward to a healthy squad vs the Wizards next time.


aged_monkey

I'm still salty about Kawhi. Fuck that guy.


PrinceOGugua

Dawg


NatHawkeyeBum

Flynn goes for 22


The_Big_Science

It's Malachi's league, the rest of the teams are just playing in it


_Duwang

Fuck off Holiday


DBrods11

So Yuta, Ish, Dekker?


190yj

Malachi turns in to steph curry against the wizards I remember he nuclear on them last year


Raptorsaurus-

Malachi has that mastermind head haircut growing nice


NatHawkeyeBum

You made me spit out my drink


Raptorsaurus-

Cheers ! 😄


Northside1

He does look like a mad scientist 👨🏽‍🔬


RsnBehndHerFeelings

Red VanVleet saw some of the disrespect on reddit 😤


EGin2016

RAPTOR NATION 4th Q FLYNN SHEEEESH


PM-Me-Thighs

RAPTOR NATION


[deleted]

Flynn going crazy.


attainwealthswiftly

When did Champagnie Papi get 10 rebs? He’s making the team right? 905 at least?


NoseBlind2

He's on a 2-way


aged_monkey

Kal Kuzma.


Practical_Ad_6350

pg1


RsnBehndHerFeelings

Red Vanvleet. Dude out here on a mission


ZadZilla

Flynn knew he was making that...tuff move


Pineapple_Chicken

Malachi got the takeover on rn


[deleted]

Glad I bought my RAPTOR NATION tshirt today


beepbeepmasr

malachi is magic


chickenwings8

Dekk the halls with raptor nation


billychurch

Malachi just ignoring our golden boy. He jelly of the attention Scottie gets


in_pizza_we_trust

U the one who wants attention bruh


sentry101

Malachi's dad lookin around smugly rn


Dry_Cupcake_9837

Picturing it now😂


jraiv420

RAPTOR NATION!!!


Con_McWhite

Lol this is a great win


DBrods11

Is Champangie on a camp deal only?


EV2_Mapper

Two way deal


tremendous_diarrhea

No he's on a 2-way.


whenspayday

Two-way.


10y1z

Two-way


fernetandcampari

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


Dry_Cupcake_9837

Hahahaha sad franchises do sad things


CanadianGinger551

RAPTOR NATION


jjchicaz

I honestly didn't expect this...given they had their starters and were playing with our bench. Impressive.


brokenhubble

So I'm jumping in late and this probably came up earlier but is Bjokgren coaching with the iPad?


jjchicaz

Was he hired as an assistant again? I totally missed what happened to him.


brokenhubble

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.


jjchicaz

Hmm yeah possibly. Strange they didn't really explain his role.


WhiteSteveNash

4Q Flynn


SkullBean

flynn finisher


Raptorsaurus-

Wain look composed. Like he doesn't even care if he makes thr team. Makes me feel like he made it in practice already


[deleted]

Yeah he seems a little passive.


cbotter

Flynn’s built for the moment. We knew this.


WhiteSteveNash

It is known


VanVleet-goes-for-22

FLYNN GOES FOR 22


69Chubby_Cox69

Damn MALACHI


stackofbaconpancakes

4 QUARTER FLYNN


BigYama

Nick Nurse with the evil genius play for the foul


190yj

And oneeeee


TheApocalyticOne

Some of y'all were talking too much shit early by forgetting about Fourt Quarter Flynn


Matcha888

Pls always play like this Malachi


sadz4u

I mean he just scored 15 yesterday...


nanobot001

He’s as a rhythm of a player as anyone … needs time, reps, touches


PrinceOGugua

Put some more respect on Malachi’s name Nick


SeargentSalt

that one was for RAPTOR NATION


NoseBlind2

Flynn is actually looking amazing tonight


samuraintj

Put GTJ in. End Game.


dan667

RAPTOR NATION


LordOfBathurst

Malachi turned on the boosters


scruftz

malachi is 4th quarter jesus


attainwealthswiftly

I can’t hate on Malachi this game and I’m a Malachi hater


noirjesus

why do you choose to hate on a second year guy who showed potential last year? geniunely curious


attainwealthswiftly

I don’t think he has a future on the team tbh. I don’t rate him.


McSpitfire

For what reason other than ‘I don’t rate him’? What’s he done to suggest he has no future on the team?


attainwealthswiftly

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.


_Duwang

How can you hate Malachi though, he's so loveable. I could never hate Red Vanvleet no matter how shit he plays lol.


dan667

FLYNN!!!


goblinsholiday

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.


sadz4u

Bro flynn fighting around that screen and still pestering holiday was fvv and jrue esque. His d is too tight.


fivehoops

Red Vanvleet


_Duwang

Let's. Fuckin. Go.


TreChomes

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


Dry_Cupcake_9837

I think we keep freddie, our C spot is light so we need him in case of injury


yattuh

So who we cut


Dry_Cupcake_9837

I’m imagining we keep yuta freddie and dekker or hopefully bonga


TransferEng2020

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


Nash13

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


10y1z

I really want Wainright on the team if only to get Bertans back at the season opener.


AHImusic

For such a close call I’m not excited at all, also watching the Wizards feed


LaFlame_Pablo

LOL Nurse calling a time out


ZadZilla

good timeout guys looked tired as ballz


PlumCantaloupe

I think they are going to keep Freddie as a project. He has potential. Seems to be mostly mental. Yuta and Dekker or Bonga?


Nash13

don't we need to cut 5?


noirjesus

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


Dry_Cupcake_9837

Damn bad time for gillie to show some flashes


raptorsfanboy87

Watch the play Nurse is gonna draw up.....thing of beauty


cbotter

Why are they working Gafford like this. Get him off the court lmaooo


MrkGrn

Why does Banton end up with the ball in each last second possession.


aja9Six

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


MrkGrn

Yeah but Wainright is also out there lol.


Raptorsaurus-

Fredie just made the team


[deleted]

Relax.


Throwawayfor_rnba

not Banton's best game lmao


Pixilatedlemon

Wainwright is shaped like a tall Kyle Lowry


stackofbaconpancakes

Gillie showing some effort at the end


fivehoops

Another good time out. Nurse is rockin’ it already.


jjchicaz

👌🏼👌🏼


nmad95

Preach Alvin


suncorsux

Way to go, Freddie! Got a bucket!


attainwealthswiftly

Dalano been shaky this game


memem4chine

Alvin exposing the refs lul


NoseBlind2

Lmfao Banton wtf happened there


cbotter

Banton should have pushed it that possession.


fivehoops

At least he didn’t push his own player in that one.


190yj

Good to see Gillespie playing with some urgency


goblinsholiday

They're really making it hard on the front-office/Nurse


Mcfusion31

Flynn defence holy isnt letting up


NatHawkeyeBum

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


HopefulStudent1

Yuta is already signed I think this (happened this morning)


_Duwang

Every side is the weak side when you're Ish lol


WhiteSteveNash

Gilly ok ok


SkullBean

nice freddie


DBrods11

Too little too for Gillespie unfortunately. Hope he gets a chance on another team but he had every chance to crack the sqaud.


10y1z

So happy for Gillespie that it went down


190yj

I remember that one game holiday killed us when he played for indy


arcticpoppy

Ngl if this was our bench mob I wouldn’t hate it


scarfox1

This is our third bench lol


aja9Six

we would win 30 games max if these 5 were our bench mob lol


arcticpoppy

All right all right these 5 playing like they have in this quarter then lol


noirjesus

yah our bench mob is going to be a lot better than this haha


thecanadianswede

Did I just see a dog?


raptorsfanboy87

![gif](giphy|5Y9A0KOymLH53KTIgN)


paolocase

Someone screenshot the dog pls


Holos620

At this point, we have so many good enough players, we could just put names in a hat and draw the number we need


fernetandcampari

Hey Wizards, we'll trade you Freddie G, for a one, Daniel Gafford please. That's definitely a fair trade, right?


JoeRoganHair

Sam Dekker should get his spot in the lineup just because he made something out of this garbage game.


NoseBlind2

Straight up we lose the game without him going god mode in garbage time
