    Raptors come up short in Chicago, but continue to be a total joy to watch

    Raptors come up short in Chicago, but continue to be a total joy to watch

    In Episode 1105, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the Raptors' 111-105 loss to the Bulls. Off the top, Sean remarks upon the level of enjoyment this flawed and bizzare Raptors team is providing night to night, even when lose, and why they're worth hitching your wagon to. Next, Sean runs through some quick observations on Pascal Siakam's tricky shooting night in an otherwise strong performance, OG Anunoby's killer 23-5-4 night that featured some peak OG defense, Gary Trent Jr.'s value to the health of the offense, and a funky 16-5-7 from Scottie Barnes. Lastly, Sean hands out the Dude of the Game to Dalano Banton, who all of a sudden looks to be making a push for more regular burn.

    Why Scottie Barnes is going to be a superstar w/ Samson Folk

Off the top they quickly chat about the dangerous game the Raptors are playing by rolling a seven-man rotation, and discuss whether its sustainable, and how the Raptors situation could change in the coming days and weeks as the trade deadline nears. Next, they dig into Samson's fantastic piece on Scottie Barnes and the reasons why he has the goods to be a superstar some day, potentially soon.

In addition, they dig into how the Raptors are using him now that the core three players on the team are healthy and playing together, what makes Barnes so effective away from the ball, and how the Raptors can gracefully level up his responsibility without cutting into what's made Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam so effective this season.
