#WeThePissedOffNorth. Toronto is pissed. Last night in the Association, a Terrence Ross three-pointer at the buzzer to tie the game was waived off when the refs ruled the game clock started late. T-Ross’s trey would have forced overtime, but instead the Kings were awarded with a 102-99 victory over the Raptors. To get the full vibe of this team, see @Raptors on the Twitter and you’ll get the sentiment. A tough spot playing tonight on a road back-to-back and it’s against the dominant Clippers. In addition, the line has jumped from Clippers (-7) to (-8.5), but the anger narrative is certainly in play for the late-game hammer. Some thoughts from Pat Pat and Sully:
Markieff Morris (Washington) — squares off against his former team, the Phoenix Suns
Norman Powell (Toronto) — played his college basketball at UCLA
Not really a narrative here, but for the first time in more than a year, a team ranks below the 76ers in offensive efficiency. Yeah, we’re looking at you Dallas Mavericks.
