    Corbin says "We're capable of making shots," That is not really the case this season.

    In fact just last game proved otherwise.

    Toronto only had one complaint about the game and that was they had nobody to defend.

    In 4th quarter and OT they did not need to defend Devin as he had just hurled another airball from 3 point land. Raja had passed up 4 open opportunities to shoot so there was no chance he would begin shooting again late in the game.

    The defenders for Toronto were in the third row of the spectator seats when Hayward had the ball begging him to shoot, but again he figured out that his shot was not in the same zipcode as the basket so he too was passing.

    Problem was Hayward was passing to Bell and Harris who have already been identified as non shooters. Raptors looked expectantly at the Jazz bench every whistle knowing CJ would be told to come in and cover for Corbins regular lineup...but alas it was not to be. Raptors did not have to guard anyone but Paul. Corbin kept in the regular non threatening shooters instead of finding another combination.

    Put the "Big C" on his chest and let him put the rest of the team on his back. Get rid of the "dead wood".

    There is no argument with Millsap. He is the people's choice and deserves every accolade. Look at pictures of huddles during timeouts. Sap stands alone. There are cliques. This should be a team and Sap should be the captain. Put the "big C" on his chest and get rid of everyone else but the "power pups" and build up from there. Once they get "blown out" at Dallas who play likes its a war, then you will know where you stand.

    That is kind of a neat picture of Sap and Big Al.. Sixty Six games is still a long season. I would still like to see more Evans. He gets everyone to play harder..
