They also touch on Scottie Barnes' strong 17-point, nine-rebound effort, and get a little excited by the mere fact that Barnes is taking threes with more regularity these days. Lastly, they hand out a very deserved Dude of the Game to Precious Achiuwa, whose 17 points in the third turned things around for the Raptors, and illustrated a greater level of control than we've seen from Achiuwa so far this season.

They discuss Pascal #Siakam's continued progression, and Scottie Barnes' ability to be good even when he's bad. Then, they fire up a game called the Raptors Trust Meter, where they dig into how much they trust each of the Raptors' regular rotation players to execute what they're being asked to do whenever they play.

Off the top, Sean digs into Pascal Siakam's extremely rough Thursday night effort and tries to diagnose where things went wrong against a #Jazz team that he normally cooks, before praising Siakam for an incredible 32 point night on 10-of-12 shooting against the #Kings, as well as dig into why his comments after the game might have been the most encouraring part of all. Next, Sean addresses the loss of OG Anunoby for "a while" to a hip pointer, and examines why his absence was such an issue against the Jazz, why life without him promises to be difficult, and how his absence could really tell us some things about Scottie Barnes, who has very clearly started to run up against a bit of a wall after a meteoric start to the season. Lastly, Sean hands out of two Dude of the Game awards to a pair of very deserving winners. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Built Bar Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.

    In Episode 1058, Sean Woodley and Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) recap the Raptors' 118-113 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night. They first dig into their biggest takeaway from the game, which is all about Toronto's slippage on the defensive end in recent games. They discuss why the Blazers' three-guard look was particularly troublesome for the Raptors, and why their lack of chemistry really showed when they switched up their defense to send two to Damian Lillard at the top of the pick-and-roll. Is it just a matter of time before the team comes together on the defensive end? And is there a chance the offense is good enough to allow them to dial back the defensive aggression a bit? Next, Sean and Vivek talk about the promising offensive signs from the Raptors' small-ball starting five from Monday night, and the success Pascal Siakam had as a short roll operator. Lastly, they hand out the Dude of the Game to a guy who's just begging to help Nick Nurse ease the minutes load on Fred VanVleet's shoulders. It is the segment everyone is talking about!

    Toronto Raptors fall to Detroit Pistons 127-121, but Pascal Siakam and Dalano Banton steal the show

    In Episode 1057, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the Toronto Raptors' 127-121 loss to Dwane Casey's Detroit Pistons on Saturday night at Scotiabank Arena. Off the top, Sean talks about how the process for the Raptors was about what you'd want to see, as they won the possession battle and had a potent offensive night, even though they were done in by poor free-throw shooting and some incredible Pistons shot-making. Of course, more important the result was Pascal Siakam's 25-12-7 night on 9-of-14 shooting. Sean talks about why that version of Siakam should unlock all sorts of good things for the Raptors, and especially the team's small-ball starting five. Then, Sean talks about Dalano Banton, who followed up a 30-7-9 game for Raptors 905 in the G-League on Friday with 12 points, three boards and two assists for the big club the next night. It's undeniable at this point: Banton should be playing more than he already has been, even if it comes at the expense of Malachi Flynn. Banton rules. Lastly, Sean hands out the Dude of the Game to a guy who just stayed ready while stuck on the sidelines for nearly three weeks, and who should maybe be getting a little more run going forward in the interest of beefing up his trade value.

Off the top they discuss how OG Anunoby's many reps on the ball paid dividends with his two game-clinching assists on threes by Gary Trent Jr. and Fred VanVleet in the late going, and give some love to VanVleet and Scottie Barnes for how they helped turn the game in the third quarter. Next, Sean and Katie discuss Chris Boucher's 17-points, 6-rebound effort in what was by far his best game of the season, and whether he or Precious Achiuwa (1-of-10 in 30 minutes) is at the most risk of losing minutes once Pascal Siakam, Khem Birch and Yuta Watanabe return.

They kick things off by discussing Pascal Siakam's ahead-of-schedule return to the lineup, and the ways in which his presence was felt on Sunday against Brooklyn, as well as how it was missed dearly in the narrow loss to Cleveland on Friday. They also discuss how the return of the team's best play could impact the shot share of guys of OG Anunoby and Scottie Barnes.
