DeMarre Carroll was quiet in Tuesdays 106-100 win over the Bucks, scoring just nine points in an empty line.
He spent most of the first three quarters trying to stay in front of Giannis Antetokounmpo, which went about as well as you might expect. Despite being billed as a 3-and-D specialist, Carroll’s defense hasn’t been up to snuff since joining Toronto, and he doesn’t possess the lateral quickness or length to bother the Greek Freak for long. Carrol was efficient, going 3-for-4 from the field and 2-for-3 from downtown, but he chipped in just one rebound, one assist and one block in addition to his scoring. The Raptors survived without him tonight, but he’ll need to step up his game if the team hopes to win two in a row on Thursday.
