Recently, coach Casey’s defensive call-to-arms, “pound the rock” has become less evocative of hard-nosed defense, and more evocative of a Raptor fan bashing his head against a rock out of frustration.
For the second straight game, Toronto gave up 120+ points, leading many people who follow the team to reach for the remote, as the chances of playoffs at the ACC become more and more distant. And to add to the hilarity, the Raptors were up 6 at the end of the third…and then, 42 of Golden State’s 125 points came in the fourth quarter. Pound the rock indeed.
You’re welcome, Golden State.
