When discussing the move Monday, Lue referenced Thompson's defensive stats against Horford over the years. It's not a luxury the Raptors had in the previous round, as OG Anunoby was the only defender who had the physical tools needed to defend James.

Jayson Tatum took the ball out, threw it to Marcus Morris in the short corner, he made a three.We come back down, missed another shot.Then Tatum came down and went 94 feet, did a Euro step and made a right-hand lay-up, timeout.There you go.(Startled applause by the listeners.)
