Dwane Casey Deserves Credit For Switching Things Up - Dwane Casey deserves a lot of credit for inserting James Johnson into the starting lineup for the game Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs. Over the past two seasons, Casey has changed his starting lineup a total of 29 times over 184 games. Only two of those changes to Toronto’s starters weren’t due to trades or injuries. That means Casey is the kind of coach that likes his rotations and sticks with them through hel... http://ow.ly/2UuP5L

Morning Coffee – Tue, Feb 10 - Toronto Raptors lack long-range accuracy, but add defence with James Johnson in starting lineup | National Post With Johnson in, the Raptors now lack that sort of long-range accuracy. With Johnson starting, the Raptors do not have a single player shooting above the league average of 35 per cent who takes those shots at a high frequency. (Amir Johnson has actually hit 49 per cent of his three-pointers this season, but he has taken only 29 o... http://ow.ly/2Uudfh

James Johnson Is More Than Just His Lowly Three-Point Percentage http://ow.ly/2UsaAj
Conventional wisdom says James Johnson shouldn't work as a starter because he can't shoot threes, but he has much more to offer Toronto's starting lineup.

Dwane Casey: James Johnson Got the Start Because of Kawhi Leonard http://ow.ly/2Uqr2V
In his post-game press conference, Dwane Casey was prompted about James Johnson, and he shed some light on why Johnson started. Asked why James Johnson started: It wasn’t for the three. It was for defensive purposes, to matchup with Kawhi Leonard, to give us a physical presence with him. I was worried about his minutes, but... Read more »

Saved by the Bench: Raptors Complete Season Sweep of Clippers http://ow.ly/2UnBOJ
The Raptors used a fericious bench attack to dismantle the Clippers. DeRozan fell just short of a triple-double in a highly entertaining Friday night win.

Small Problems at Forward and the Second Unit - While Terrence Ross’ starting spot has been in a state of flux lately, the other four starting spots are firmly locked in place and working well. There’s very little worry about the core four there. The small forward spot though has been a problem for the team this year (and last year as well). The bench has been up and down as well. With the surging Cavaliers and a Bulls team that could return from the break healthy and f... http://ow.ly/2UuEuL
Taking stock of where things stand with the team's depth in a look at the small forward position and bench units.

Kyle Lowry Thankful to Canada for SportChek Deal - As first announced by The Forzani Group which owns SportChek, Kyle Lowry’s first big endorsement will be SportChek. He gave an interview where he spoke about opportunities coming left and right at him, partially because of being in Canada and being an All-Star, and how he’s got to be selective. You had one or two deals. Now you have a lot more, because I do play in Canada which is a country [with] a big market out here.... http://ow.ly/2Utxfm
Kyle Lowry endorses SportChek, still behind Hedo Turkoglu and Andrea Bargnani in most-fitting endorsements.

Morning Coffee – Sat, Feb 7 - The juggling act that will define once-promising Raptors season | New York Post The reason the doubts have begun to creep in – and why they have some credence – is Raptor’s significant drop on defense this season. Last season, Toronto was one of only two teams in the NBA to finish among the top 10 in offensive and defensive efficiency, ranking ninth in both categories. This season, the offense has improved, shooting up to fourth in the leag... http://ow.ly/2Unxhj
