Synopsis: In the latest edition of The Raptors Reasonablists Podcast, Eric Koreen and I discuss a shorthanded Raptors back-to-back in Los Angeles.
Blake and Eric recap an eventful weekend for the Raptors and discuss the impact of injuries to Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and OG Anunoby, how limited the Raptors offence could be without them going forward, as well as standout performances from depth players Chris Boucher, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Terence Davis. The guys also get into inconsistency from Norm Powell, improving Marc Gasol’s role in the offensive scheme, and Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet taking on even bigger roles with the injuries piling up. Plus, a lookahead to the Blazers and Mavs this week.
