DeMar DeRozan    G/F  Raptors

 

 

DeMar DeRozan's 28 points weren't enough in Monday's 101-97 loss to the Spurs. He didn't have to deal with Kawhi Leonard's defense (quad), but DeRozan was the only reliable source of offense for Toronto tonight -- the rest of the starting lineup combined to score 31 points. DeRozan shot 10-of-20 from the field and 6-of-9 from the line, adding four assists, two rebounds, three steals and hit his first two 3-pointers of the season.

Jakob Poeltl    C  Raptors

 

 

Jakob Poeltl outplayed Lucas Nogueira off the bench on Monday vs. the Spurs, scoring 10 points with 12 rebounds, one steal and three blocks. With Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) unavailable, Bebe got the start, but Poeltl played 26 minutes compared to 19 for the Brazilian. He finished 4-of-5 from the field, putting him on the map as a short-term pickup until J-Val is cleared to return -- J-Val is hopeful to return at some point during this road trip. Keep in mind that both Poeltl and Bebe will be hard to trust on Wednesday against the Warriors with their small-ball lineups.

Lucas Nogueira    C  Raptors

 

 

Lucas Nogueira struggled in a fill-in start for Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) against the Spurs, scoring four points (1-of-4 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with five rebounds and two steals in 19 minutes. He picked up a few fouls and was outplayed by Jakob Poeltl. Coach Dwane Casey did say that Bebe will continue to start If J-Val misses more time, but keep on mind that Valanciunas is hoping to return at some point on this road trip -- the Raptors have five more games on the road. With a tough matchup against the Warriors on Wednesday, it won't be easy for Nogueira to bounce back. The Warriors are playing more small ball these days as well.

Kyle Lowry    G  Raptors

 

 

Kyle Lowry was held to eight points on 3-of-11 shooting in Toronto's first loss of the season on Monday vs. San Antonio. The Spurs were one of the toughest matchups for point guards last season and this year is no different. Lowry added just three assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes, but look for him to bounce back against the Warriors on Wednesday. In two matchups with GSW last season, Lowry put up 25.5 points per game.

Lucas Nogueira    C  Raptors

 

 

Lucas Nogueira will draw the start in place of Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) on Monday vs. the Spurs. Nogueira started the second half of Saturday's game vs. Philly when J-Val left the game, finishing with 10 points with nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 16 minutes. J-Val is hopeful to return on this six-game road trip, but coach Dwane Casey said Nogueira will start until he's cleared to return. Give him a look if you need to stream some blocks this week.
