Over the last 3 games, Raptors have dodged Giannis, Middleton, Towns, Gobert & Tatum (with Lopez, Smart and Rob Williams leaving early). They led by 9, 18 & 11 pts in those games, have an 0-3 record to show for it. They lost the last 2 by 4 pts after being outscored 52-36 in 4thQ – 7:18 PM

I think this possession is a good example of how scheme contributes to the Wolves poor defensive rebounding.
When Gobert is off the floor, they want to show the big and, with the guard, push the ball east/west. But when that ball-handler still opts to shoot, they’re susceptible. pic.twitter.com/G14xiZmZPV – 2:10 PM
