Bench Grades

NORMAN POWELL

Shooting Guard, Toronto Raptors

A

Norman Powell had a stellar game off the bench. He shot a very respectable 9-of-11 from the field and came away with 23 points. His shot did not look forced and instead seemed to come with ease. He played with a lot of confidence throughout the game and on the offensive end worked very well off the ball. He stayed in motion on both ends and consistently kept the pace going for his team. There were times defensively where he was slightly out of place or seemed a bit timid but nevertheless contributed immensely to the Raptors win.

PATRICK MCCAW

Shooting Guard, Toronto Raptors

B

Patrick McCaw had six points, five assists, and two steals in 25 minutes of play. He was playing well but still seems to be on an energy level one tier below the rest of the Raptors team. He hasn’t been playing with the same energetic grit that the team has become known for this season and this raises concerns with whether he can be a go-to player throughout the season. He played some strong defense in the game while covering opposing guards yet there are moments where Raptors fans can’t seem to understand why McCaw is being looked towards for a bulk set of minutes over some of the other players.

TERENCE DAVIS

Shooting Guard, Toronto Raptors

A

Terence Davis has been a bit inconsistent in what Raptors fans. But against OKC he played with a lot of energy and knew his role. He dug in on defense and came away with three steals which was a major contributor to seal the game away in the fourth quarter. In addition to his steals, he put up 12 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. His energy on the glass allowed the Raptors offense to get ahead in transition to find open shots. He played how Raptors fans hope he’ll play every night.

RONDAE HOLLIS-JEFFERSON

Power Forward, Toronto Raptors

B

Hollis-Jefferson was only in for a short eight minutes. He played some strong defense and scooped up three rebounds and in assist in his time. It would have been good to potentially match him up against Schroder who was having a strong night to add a bit more defensive pressure.
