SALT LAKE CITY - Sporting a Seahawks cap during afternoon shootaround, coach Dwane Casey reinforced a sentiment hes preached over and over again since coming
to Toronto. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar Jersey . "Relentless defence wins in any sport," he said after watching the hard-hitting,
opportunistic Seahawks stymie the Broncos and their high-octane offence. Casey
didnt have to say much as he and his team watched Seattles dominant Super Bowl
victory from their Salt Lake City hotel Sunday night. The message had already
been engrained into the mindset of his players and stuck with them in Utah the
following evening. "We cant control if our shots go in, we cant make every shot
but we can control when we play hard on the defensive end," DeMar DeRozan said
after holding Utah to 41 per cent shooting in a 94-79 win over the Jazz Monday.
"Were understanding that more and more every game." Again, the Raptors got off
to a slow start on the defensive end, something that plagued them in Portland
Saturday as their comeback bid eventually fell short. The Jazz shot 50 per cent
and scored 27 points, closing out the opening quarter with a three-point lead
before Toronto tightened the screws in the second frame. Utah scored just 17
points in the second quarter, shooting 35 per cent from the field, 0-of-7 from
three-point range and was held without a single assist. The Jazz didnt score
more than 18 points in any quarter after the first. "Thats an issue with our
team," Casey said before the game. "For whatever reason we turn up the intensity
after halftime. I dont know if they like hearing me go ballistic at halftime."
"Its one of our unfortunate traits, I would say, but again well take [the win]."
The Raptors resiliency was tested again as Kyle Lowry - fresh off being named
Eastern Conference Player of the Month - left for the locker room late in the
third quarter to get treatment on a sore right knee. Lowry has been the teams
most consistent contributor but seemed off his game, shooting 1-for-8 in 25
minutes before he was ruled out for the fourth quarter. The good news is the
injury doesnt appear to be a serious one. Lowry has been battling soreness in
the knee for about a week, playing through it and playing well, but on Monday he
couldnt get it loose. "I couldnt help my team as much as I wanted to," said
Lowry, who expects to play in Sacramento on Wednesday. "I trust my teammates
would get the job done and thats what they did tonight." Torontos depth and team
chemistry came through with Lowry on the sideline. Greivis Vasquez, who returned
from a bout of the flu, stepped in at the point and scored 12 off the bench.
Amir Johnson - playing on a sore right ankle - looked better, recording a
double-double. Jonas Valanciunas had one of his better games in a tough matchup
against Enes Kanter and John Salmons chipped in with 13 off the bench. As it has
been when one Raptor struggles or gets hurt, the next man steps up. "Thats what
it is, I think were playing for each other," Vasquez said. "I want Kyle to get
healthy, I want the best for each and every one of us so thats important, man.
When you have a team that has such a great atmosphere in the locker room, that
care about each other, its going to be scary." Most importantly, it was the
defensive effort that carried them to their sixth win over the last eight games.
Casey preaches it every day and his troops have all bought in. Theyve seen how
far it can take them. "The good thing about it is our players were talking about
it last night watching the [Super Bowl]," said the Raptors coach. "Our guys were
talking about how [the Seahawks] were hitting people and thats what Ive been
preaching and am preaching, hit first." "Basketball-wise, its a little bit
different but you can be aggressive for 48 minutes, take away options, take away
passing lanes, bump cutters, box out [and] hit people coming for rebounds."
Casey, an assistant with the Sonics for 11 years, resides in Seattle during the
offseason and was invited to visit the Seahawks training camp a couple summers
ago, where he - along with Blazers coach and good friend Terry Stotts - got the
opportunity to watch Pete Carroll at work. The takeaway for Casey was to fully
embrace and stay true to his philosophy as a head coach. "[Carroll is] a guy
thats comfortable in his skin and Im at that point in my career too," he said.
"In his first couple of tries he tried to do it the way the organization wanted
to do it and he was trying to please everybody. I think you have to coach to
your personality and to the personality of your team and thats what he conveyed
to [Stotts] and I when we met with him" That philosophy - defence first, second
and third - has been hammered home since day one and the results are beginning
to reflect it. Entering Mondays games the Raptors ranked sixth in defensive
efficiency, just behind the leagues heavy hitters (Indiana, Chicago, Golden
State, Oklahoma City and San Antonio). On Monday they surrendered just 79
points, matching the second lowest total theyve given up all year. "I dont care
who is playing, when you play the Utah Jazz, its a brand of basketball thats
very difficult," Casey said. "Youre going to have to grind it out, youre going
to have to earn every inch, every yard in this place and we did tonight." "The
rest of the way, before the [All-Star] break, were going to have to grind it out
mentally and physically," he continued. "Thats how its going to be because
people are going to come out throwing haymakers at us and weve got to be
physically and mentally prepared for it." On the season, theyre now 22-6 when
holding teams under 100 points. Theyre 20-4 when opponents shoot below 45 per
cent. Robin van Persie Netherlands Jersey .com) - The 2014 Holiday Bowl is the first postseason venture pitting a pair of ranked
