Re: OGT: Jan 7 Raptors (16-16) @ Pacers (27-6)
the way the whistle went inside, you have to believe JV and Amir were not given the benefit of the doubt. Hibbert and West were allowed to be way more physical in this game. Our interior D is what makes our team so good, it allows us to get stops and push the ball. When we get into a half court battle we tend to rely on DeRozan too much. Tonight he had it going but if he didn't we would have been blown out.
Tough game but just like the Miami game, I was impressed with our ability to play through the whistle not going our way more often than not. It's almost as if we play harder when calls don't go our way. That's the very definition of a hungry team.
