Shorthanded 905 fall to Blue Coats - Nov 18, 2018

Jonah Bolden
There are many antiquated idioms in pro sports, one being there's no such thing as moral victories. But on Saturday, in a 15-point loss to the Delaware Blue Coats, the 905 earned one. Coaches and players say they hate 'excuses', but today's were legitimate:
-No Chris Boucher, Jordan Loyd, or Malachi Richardson.
-6 games in 10 nights.
-8 active players.
-Delaware coming off a week of rest.
Raptors 905 Head Coach Jama Mahlalela outlined all of the above in the pregame media scrum, and with his full roster only able to eke out a win over the Blue Coats on opening night, another win was going to be a tough ask. One addition to the lineup was Kyle Collinsworth, returning from an ankle injury. He tested the ankle early - driving to the hoop four times, scoring on two of them, and drawing a foul on another. Heading into the game's first timeout, 905 forward Christian Watford (6'9''-F-91, college: Indiana) held his chest and mimed deep breaths at Collinsworth', who smiled. Collinsworth went an encouraging 6-for-11 from the field with 16 points. 'Our team was really excited to have him back. He's the leader of our team,' Mahlalela said post game. 'Really good first half - the four-five games off started to get to him after that, which happens.' Kay Felder (5'9''-PG-95, college: Oakland) also started strong - scoring on a bully-ball post up (he's 5'9, his defender Matt Farrell is 6'1). He added a nice assist for a corner three, a smooth pull-up, and a gorgeous feed in transition to Collinsworth for an And-1. Another great sign was Deng Adel's early play. Starting at the four, Adel was flying defensively, contesting shooters and bodying up 7-footers inside. 'Nice job Adel' was echoing from Mahlalela's mouth throughout the opening moments. 'For Deng it's that learning moment of how do I guard players like that,' Mahlalela said. 'It's about 'how do I guard those really big popping, shooting talented players? That's that growth. He's winning that moment of how do I match up against this type of player, and next game it may be a different type of player and he'll have to figure that one out too.' The defensive intensity would wane in the back half of the quarter, though. Blue Coats two-way Shake Milton (6'6''-G-96, college: SMU) got going, scoring 11 points, with two threes. And Cameron Oliver (6'8''-F-96, college: Nevada) sucked the air out of the building with a massive dunk. While the 905 were up 8 after 1, it was going to be tough to maintain the lead with only 8 active players. Delaware quickly cut the lead to 1 in the second, offensive rebounding (11 conceded), and half court defence (32 points in the paint conceded on 16-for-24 shooting) becoming major issues. While the Blue Coats were getting almost anything they wanted, the undermanned 905 fought gamely - Adel contesting shots and pumping fists, while going 6-for-6 from the foul line (and 1-for-6 from the field) for 8 first half points. Open Tryout walk-on Khadim Lattin was also huge in his first start of the season, scooping up 5 offensive boards in the first half, while going 4-for-9 from the field, including a big three. Christian Watford going 3-for-4 from deep allowed the 905 to tread water. The Blue Coats shot 49% in the half, but they only made 8-of-23 threes. Somehow the 905 trailed by 4 at the break. In the third two early Blue Coats threes by Farrell and Jonah Bolden (6'10''-F/C-96, college: UCLA) put the lead up to 7, while the 905's offence ground to a halt, almost exclusively depending on Felder to score or create. Adel tried to revive the crowd with a poster dunk, but after gathering a full head of steam, 6'11 Norvel Pelle (6'10''-F-93, college: Iona) sent him away at the apex. Pelle owned the paint, blocking 6 shots, many of the angry, swatting out-of-bounds variety. After easy dunks and layups from the Blue Coats' bigs upped the lead to double digits, Mahlalela went to a rarely-seen zone. But that was rendered moot by the Blue Coats scoring 5 points in transition to close the quarter. The Blue Coats were up 96-78 after three, and the 905 couldn't make another run. Mahlalela said they're going to 'flush this loss down the toilet,' which seems a worth destination. They host the Windy City Bulls at home on Wednesday.
