Welcome into the we got next podcast just jumping in here on the late game action between the Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors in Toronto.
1 15 109 lead Currently for the Houston Rockets, and it looks like they are reviewing currently about a potential foul called They're on a three point attempt.
Seeing what bears out here obviously, were it to stand, this will be three free throws in a ah, what is a six point game right now? So could effectively bring it down with 1 14 to play here would bring it down within a one possession game.
Uh, and it looks like they are highlighting right now.
We'll just take a We'll take a look inside of this and see what they come up with here.
Ah, and then I was really honestly, I was taking a look at saying, What are we going to see in terms of, ah, after this and try to see some league game action that made me want to jump in and highlight later? But I'll carry this one through here.
Just probably 10 15 minutes.
Hop off, Reassess myself and see how late I want to go here on the SportsCastr platform.
It's a blow by there.
So they're calling Fred Van Fleet.
Looks like Rivers was out there on coverage, seeing if he swept through him there and Van Fleet with his arms in the air like you just don't care.
So they do reverse that call.
Not gonna be found.
They reviewed it was not a foul.
And now, with coming up on a minute to play, will remain down six here.
Certainly still an opportunity for the Toronto Raptors.
As Westbrook brings it across the court, He has van fleet on him as they spread the floor out wine looked at work this clock down.
Get a good look here, stretching to three possessions As Westbrook owes regular t the defense and get this one to rattle home.
He'll go ahead and flash the muscles as you have.
Ah, now Marc Gasol going ahead and getting it back up the court to see aacm Siachen dries rate and tried to kick outside nearly throws this one away from the perimeter, drives into the lane There he'll go for the easy to and cannot get it with the rebound that will wrap this one.
Unfortunately, I think SIAC, um, probably means the right call years trying to get out on the perimeter for an opportunity.
And instead of just going into the teeth and taking, too, he knows you're down 1 17 1093 pointers What you're looking for there.
Unfortunately, as he kicks it outside onto the perimeter, his teammate does not look at that situation the same way on rather than, like you say, going for an opportunity.
There he ends up driving into the basket himself, effectively taking away that opportunity for for a chance at a three ball there, which we cut it to five.
You're talking about going to that foul scenario and just seeing if you could extend this game action here.
So, unfortunately, in this one not going to be an opportunity, it looks like I never want to count my chickens before they hatch.
As Westbrook knocks down his first free throw and makes it now, a nine point game effectively feels that this one's out of reach here.
We'll dive inside stat lines here.
I did not get a chance to watch this life so Certainly I'm not going to.
Ah, I'm not gonna say anything beyond what I see in this In the scorecard here from how this game played out, I can, of course, go inside the quarterly report here as there is a time out called by tomorrow.
Give me a chance to let you know Houston, at that 34 to 28 edge in the first quarter, backed it up with additional two point spread their 29.
27 as we went 1/2 time here.
So effectively gave them that the 678 point lead.
There it was, Ah, the eight point lead cut six following the third quarter and then right now, please, to a 25 21.
So you haven't seen this is this is a 10 point lead, their Toronto basically on 1/4 to quarter based.
I can't say what happened in between the between the lines during those quarters there.
But it feels like just a game where the Rockets were certainly got themselves at the halftime lead and able to be consistent and that working here down the stretch, maybe some opportunities there late, obviously, event fleet voicing that free will would have cut it to a three point game is that it goes the other way.
And now we see 1 19 to 10 night lead inside the numbers.
Just 40% from the field for the Houston Rockets, 40 and 98 consistent 22 55 from beyond the arc and knocking down 15 of 17 from the free throw line.
Nice clean up job from them there.
They had 22 turnovers in this one.
Good gravy, 17 turnovers for the Toronto Raptors.
So no one playing particularly clean basketball.
Shooting 43% from the field, though, where the Toronto Raptors just 12 38 for 31 from beyond the arc.
So you can see how just 12 made three pointers versus the 22 So that's a big difference there in the margins.
Bounce outside to Gasol, shuffles the feet, trying to get out to see ya.
Come now, Nice defense yearly, and it came from the from the Houston Rockets.
They're Siachen can't connect and that'll be the end of this one here as the shot clock is turned off 2124 from the line.
So they got to the free throw knocked him down.
But it just flat out did not matter in this one.
And then you talk about, of course, those turnovers being a big factor there.
14 steals for the trunk, half 11 for the Rockets.
I mean, just a very That's how you get these mid this many turnovers, obviously.
But just a wild game here.
I would have liked to have caught a little bit more in this action.
27 assists on the 38 made of fuel goals for Toronto, 29 on 40 for the Houston Rockets.
For the team you're gonna wanna look there at. Ah.
What, you want to call this surprising Macklemore? Go on.
Being the high man, there were 28 points. 23 from Harden.
Ah, 7 11 Basically quiet night for him.
Had only three assists.
How about this line, though? Double double.
Excuse. Triple double. Don't Don't let me hold you back here.
Uh, certainly Westbrook.
Russell, Western ago.
Russell Westbrook goes in 35 minutes a game.
Action on Lee goes seven of 27 from the field and not a great line of six from beyond the arc.
Five or six from the line, though, gave you 13 rebounds, 11 assists and comes up with 19 points and a triple double for the for the for the Houston Rockets, so always impressive when he could do it right.
Tucker kicked in 6 to 12 with a five, a 10 from beyond the arc in the 18 hard with a quiet seven for 11 through in there.
Seven rebounds and three assists with five steals, though so certainly active on the defensive end.
23 points there to go along with them.
Big Man was house off the bench.
Wonder if I had him in my fantasy lineup because he had been a gametime decision.
These last couple once gave you 16 there on the other side of things.
Big efforts from Powell and ah Baka off the bench.
Well, you know Baka goes for 10 10 points.
Ah, four of eight from the field was Pal give you 14 to certainly bench contributions for them.
But in that starting rotation, Gasol and 29 minutes just to a four, so he gets timing in and around, can't get himself into a rhythm uh, see ya.
Come gives you 24 on the 9th 22 shooting night, two of eight from beyond the arc from him and then Van Fleet.
Seven of 13 3 of seven from beyond the arc.
Lowery back in the game.
Action certainly gave you 1966 of the line there.
And listening to the game that gets away from the late again, I'm not gonna blow smoke and say that I fall for this one down the stretch here.
Ultimately, top team in the East Wall.
Top teams taking on of the Houston Rockets, coming up with a 10 point deficit on their home floor.
So I want to jump in on this live action.
I said maybe I was gonna go 10 minutes.
I'm just going to go up to the five minute mark here and highlight that.
Certainly in these kind of games, right? Active hands on both ends of the floor, turnovers combining for Ah, nearly 40 39 I think is the number there.
So you want to talk about Sloppy? Both these teams were able to give you those looks from that standpoint as well.
Offensive Rebounds 12 Produced in 33 defense if 45 total.
Also, I was for the Raptors.
They're 20 offensive rebounds of second chance points for the Houston Rockets, certainly 34 defensively, outrebounding 54 to 45 in this one.
So in spite of the fact that the ah, the Toronto Raptors out shot them from from from the field, it's those.
It's those three pointers that we're going to do the damage for you, right? Certainly that tells the tale here, plus 10 in made three pointers for the Houston Rockets that I's going to give you an extra 10 points over this, and by golly, it was a 10 point victory for them, and I don't want to make it a simple as that.
But as I read through these stat lines, that's what looks certainly stands out for me there as well.
We will step away from this coverage here and see if we want to dive into any game action before I do.
I'll highlight if there is a leaking that will be starting.
Honestly, I don't know how deep I'm going to go down the rabbit hole on this evening as I've been doing some substantial coverage here between this and some NFL coverage here on a Thursday night, and I may get back in on some fourth quarter action there.
So, uh, right now is the pelicans in the fourth quarter, trailing the sun's there 1 11 1 on one.
Nothing else to note here.
So with that, I'll just say I want to jump in here and see if something got exciting there instead of going from a six point lead to a three point lead in a tight competition.
There, in there in the last minute.
Houston stretches it out there.
Ah, and that'll wrap it up as they talk with Macklemore, the high man here in the postgame coverage.
Nice road win for the Houston Rockets.
We will do one more little bit of Ah of highlighting here as the Rockets are now 14 and 76 and five on the road.
Certainly nice for them.
15 and six on the season.
Nine to at home for Rochester.
Second loss there on the road, start on their home court for the Toronto Raptors.
Just got Lowry backs to expect him to get back into the rhythm and keep right on rolling.
Currently in the fourth position there behind the Miami Heat.
How about a surprise team, for I think that we thought that he could play well, but they certainly outperformed my expectations early in the season here, Toronto still remain 773 over there, last 10 and now they will turn their sights going forward, looking ahead to a match up in Philadelphia with the 76 or so they certainly have now coming off of back to back losses to the Heat and then to the Houston Rockets.
They will now look ahead to the 76 years on the road to mention, but then get a quote easy match up against the Chicago Bulls before they have matchups going at home for L.
And then they'll have the visiting Brooklyn Nets so would have liked to have lied a little bit more from them here in this game but couldn't get out on the action a little bit sooner.
And with that, that'll be how they play out, and we'll have the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Detroit Pistons so followed by the Washington Wizards, to cap that off there so certainly soon get right games on the on the line up here for the Ah, for the Toronto Raptors.
As I am getting a little bit of bonus coverage live looking here much as well.
Stick around a CZ Lonzo ball came down 10 for fourth quarter here.
You know what, boy? I'd like to pivot over and start my coverage here.
Live on on, SportsCastr, Just in case anyone's looking for it so quickly here.
Just in case anyone looking for coverage on this game, I'm going to cut my ties with the Houston Rockets.
Toronto Raptors jumped right over.
I'm gonna come right back in live covering the sons and the pelicans as a splash down from three point territory does go the, uh, the Johnson for the Sons of capping off.
Now a 10 point lead here 1 14 to 104 as a pelican tried to answer quickly and could not.
So let's go ahead and just pivot over our coverage.
Makes sure we bring in any of those sons and pelicans fans as well dive in on some of this life game action here.
Thank you for following me.
Now follow me again.
