Jonas Valanciunas 23 Points Full Highlights (10/19/2017)

In a way, Jonas Valanciunas performance tonight was by far the most impressive one on the team, even more than the raw point totals indicate. All his other teammates were matched up against role-players who aren’t very successful as NBA roster material. But Valanciunas was matched up against Robin Lopez, who is definitely NBA-caliber, and…

Thon Maker isn’t around to sorta kinda expose Jonas Valanciunas’ weaknesses anymore, so in theory he should be good to get reinserted into the starting lineup for the Raptors. Ignore the first game of this series, where he actually did get the start and was ignored just like always. As we saw tonight, a properly…

“Dear Diary, I really hate Jonas Valanciunas. Every time I think I’ve finally done it, every time I think I’ve successfully ruined his career, he comes in and has one of his so-called “good games” that sets back all my progress. I am so tired of looking at that guy’s dumb beard and stupid face…

Jonas Valanciunas 25 Points Full Highlights (3/8/2017)

The age-old debate continues: is Dwayne Casey holding down Jonas Valanciunas, who is a potential star, because he is an idiot of a coach, or is Dwayne Casey rightfully denying playing time to Jonas Valanciunas because he isn’t that effective of an NBA player in terms of advanced stats? I don’t think a resolution will…

Jonas Valanciunas 23 Points Full Highlights (11/20/2016)

I won’t even try to comment on the way that the Raptors-Kings game ended last night. Apparently it was contentious and controversial. Math involving the shot clock and the game clock was involved. Balls were tipped. Toronto fans think the league is rigged against them because of the leaf on their flag. Players are tweeting…

Jonas Valanciunas Career High 32 Points Full Highlights (10/26/2016)

Sorry about this vid. It’s Jonas Valanciunas scoring a career-high 32 points. That’s not the part I’m sorry about. Well, it kind of is. Because this vid contains a LOT of free throws. Free throws, as you all know, are the lamest part of any highlight viewing experience. Just a dude standing 15 feet away…

Jonas Valanciunas 24 Points Full Highlights (5/3/2016)

Jonas Valanciunas is straight gangstering so far in these playoffs. Fifteen and twelve on good percentages? Those are pretty much the numbers that you’d see in a theoretical definition for “straight gangstering”. Unfortunately, a certain pair of unnamed “chuck bros” again cost their team the win with their poor shooting, poor passing, and overall poor…

Attention Raptors fans/Lithuanians: you were not alone in your assumption, formed at halftime, that Jonas Valanciunas would score 40 tonight. DownToBuck thought the same, incapable as he is of understanding that first-half performances don’t indicate much about second-half performances. Jonas looked unstoppable out there in the first half. The post touches he was promised were…

Jonas Valanciunas 20 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (2/22/2016)

There is a rumor out there that the Raptors turned down a deal centered (heh) around Dwight Howard and Jonas Valanciunas. Not knowing the other parts of the trade, it’s impossible to say whether they made the right move or not. In any case, do you get rid of a guy who needs touches but…
