Terrence Ross finally got his time to shine?
Read on twitter that during the Raptors game against the Magic a player went down and Terrence Ross finally got his chance to be subbed into the game. Not only did he get subbed in but he scored a legit 13 in the win over the Magic. I know a lot of people on this forum liked this guy prior to the season starting and I was curious how you all feel he will do if he continues to get minutes? (He told a reporter according to twitter, he would like all the minutes at his position if possible lol.)
Oh he also had a MONSTER dunk which I caught on sportscenter, was pretty sick.
He would provide good defense and can stretch the floor with his three point shot, he's streaky but he can heat up in a hurry and like you said, he will throw down a couple highlight dunks. It hunk it's time I give him more minutes now than later, as it seems we won't be competing for an eight seed
Ive watched all the games so far and the best thing about him is his defense, such a pesky defender! Defensively doesnt get enough minutes (Peterus is probably going to get less and less as we go on in the season)
He had two MONSTER dunks today
had four dunks the last time he got heavy minutes against rockets > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je6H8VAnIG4
I think hes gonna end up being better then Waiters/Beal/Rivers but i may be bias!
Dang, he destroyed JJ.
And I May Be Biased...I'm surprised no one's used that as a name yet
this dunk against the kinds was also pretty nasty> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFzr8DDCW5A
He's had about three games like this before this season, and then he goes back to getting limited minutes and not playing so well either. He's gonna be a good player, but his rookie season is going to be full of roller coasters.
i personally think his game against the pistons, right before the magic, made him get this playing time.. against the stones, he nailed some KEY shots and scored 9 pts in 11 minutes.. not to mention while his playing time has been increasing, the raptors have been playing better
I absolutely love Ross' game, but for whatever reason, I always felt he would be a guy who may never live up to his full potential. I hope I am wrong and although Jason Richardson has had a wonderful career, I felt he couldve been better if he didnt fall in love with his jumpshot so much. Thats how I feel about Ross.
Here's what that struck close to home for me (vs. Marquette)
Would have taken him 3rd overall behind Drummond. It will be interesting to see Toronto going forward with Derozan and Ross coexisting and the growth of other young players. Especially with the recent emergence of Ed Davis. Not a big fan of Valanciunas but they have a lot of pieces to work with. Plus whatever Bargs brings in through his trade.
His play of late is great, the dunks, his shot is falling, he's getting consistent minutes and his overall game is slowly improving game after game. He got the tools to become an All-Star player if he goes hard in the off season. The most important area he will need to work on is ball handling, the ability to create more for himself and his teammates, also getting physically stronger is a must as well.
