Fred VanVleet 24 Points/10 Assists Full Highlights (8/19/2020)

Fred VanVleet: best player on the Raptors? Maybe your gut reaction is that no, FVV is not the best player on the Raptors. That was my gut reaction too when I first posed the question to myself. My gut also wasn’t very happy because I ate three orders of pretzel bites from Culver’s and then…

Norman Powell 24 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (8/19/2020)

Norman Powell underwent an amazing transformation this season. He went from a “Bucks Killer” who would play exceptionally well against the Bucks and so-so against other teams, to an “Everyone Killer” who plays well against everybody. This is like sitting in your garden watching a caterpillar turn into a butterfly, but it’s actually way more…

Serge Ibaka 22 Points Full Highlights (8/17/2020)

I have yet to watch an episode of Serge Ibaka’s cooking show. That’s not a brag, I’m just pointing out that the culinary experimentations depicted in his webseries are of lesser interest to me than his frightening ability to hid a midrange jumper anywhere at any time (as long as “anywhere” is somewhere between the…

Fred VanVleet 30 Points/11 Assists Full Highlights (8/17/2020)

It’s a widely-known fact that Fred VanVleet ascended into a new level of basketball-playing beastdom when his son, Fred VanVleet Jr., was born into the world. But that was just a temporary boost. The glow of being a new dad doesn’t last forever (I don’t have personal experience with this, but I asked my dad…

Stanley Johnson 23 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (8/14/2020)

Stanley Johnson resurrected himself from the dead (actually the very end of the Raptors bench – but being dead is basically the same thing) in the game before this with a “game-winner” against the Philly Cheesesteaks. I put “game-winner” in quotes because there were still five seconds left in the game at the time he…

Paul Watson Career High 22 Points Full Highlights (8/14/2020)

Raptors fans will be exceedingly happy to tell you all about this guy, this “Paul Watson”. That’s what Raptors fans live for: to tell other fanbases how good and sweet and amazing their young players are due to their team’s high-class developmental system. They’ll talk for hours about it, nonstop. Just endless jabbering about how…

Chris Boucher 19 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (8/12/2020)

I understand that Marc Gasol brings “intangible” things to the game of basketball. He’s savvy, he knows how to win, he utterly shuts down Joel Embiid whenver they match up (that’s more of a “tangible” than an “intangible” but whatever), he provides leadership on the court, blah blah blah, who cares? Marc Gasol might have…

Norman Powell 21 Points Full Highlights (8/10/2020)

What you see here is an example of the “mercy rule”. It is a 100% verified scientific fact that Norman Powell is a 100% certified Bucks Killer. He kills the Bucks all the time. They traded him for poopoo and now he hates them and he will hate them until last of his neurons flickers…

Chris Boucher 25 Points Full Highlights (8/10/2020)

So we were all robbed of those glorious early-to-mid April games where all the starters are resting up for the playoffs and all the scrubs on the ends of benches, and even some new scrubs signed to fresh new ten-day contracts, are thrown onto the court at once to duke it out for our entertainment….

Matt Thomas 22 Points Full Highlights (8/10/2020)

Just four days ago I wrote these words which I have now come to deeply regret: “Tyler Herro is OFFICIALLY DownToBuck’s preferred unpigmented Wisconsin-born Wisconsin-raised male NBA player.” Can you believe that garbage actually came out of my mouth? I want to believe that I was forced at gunpoint by Tyler Herro-aligned cronies to write…
