Alan Anderson Breaks Larry Sanders’ Ankles and Forces Overtime (VIDEO)

Big-time play.

Larry Sanders—great defender that he is—was humiliated by Alan Anderson on a jab step, as Sanders’ feet got tangled up and he ended up on his bum. Anderson’s dunk forced overtime, but the Toronto Raptors lost to the Brandon Jennings-led Milwaukee Bucks in the extra session 122-114.

    This is why Alan Henderson is still starting over T.Ross. This guy is a true pro who makes both dirty and significant plays. Yea T. Ross may be taking over his spot in the near future but to me right now Alan is a starter in lock for Toronto.

    Looks like Sanders got knocked over by Sanders. Might be the camera angle though

    what AA does on the court is always a super positive or a super negative thing theres no consistant middle… he does make the timely big shot but he also takes the most rushed and difficult shots

    #1, it’s Alan Anderson.
    #2, Anderson is not in the starting line-up.

    #1 My bad.
    #2 My bad again. But although he isn’t starting, he is still getting many meaningful minutes for the Raptors. He is one good piece to the Raptors for sure.

    number 7 just stood there and watched, what a waste of height

  • RKJ92

    He’s not a good piece at all.. he’s 30 years old and shoots 35% from the field and 33% from the three point line, not to mention he’s slow on defense, and doesnt provide the team much in terms of rebounding, assists, steals, and is stunting the teams growth.. so please don’t comment if you have no IDEA what he is doing for our team aside from watching a highlight or 2, thankyou.

    Just a question, if he is really that bad, why is he still getting minutes from Casey?
    And you are right, I’ve only watch several Raptors games (I spend most of my time on watching my Hawks), so I’m sorry that’s on me. But that’s just the feeling I get from the Raptors games I watched, although he has been hoisting up very questionable shot attempts, most of the time his plays stabilizes the other teammates on the court, and such things won’t be shown on his stats. That’s just my own view.

    Anderson is currently getting minutes over Ross because Ross isn’t a fundimentally sound player, he still needs coaching and time to develop, they had considered moving him to the D-league but wanted to keep him on the team as a valuable asset and aswell to watch other NBA shooting guards play and learn from how they play the game such as your Harden, Kobe, Joe Johnson type players.. Aswell if the raptors make the playoffs we get a sh*t draft pick this year so I think thats another reason ross isnt playing.. I mean I could really go on and on.. expect Ross’s minutes to bump up to 22mpg next year though and an average of about 14-4-3 off the bench as a 6th man.

    Yep, Ross is definitely in a good shape to become one good player if he continues to stay with the team and develop… don’t know if this comparison has gone too far, but he kinda reminds me of T-mac in his earlier years with Toronto – under the shadow of an already proven player in Vince (Gay and Derozan now), but everyone knows and is excited about his potential.
    However, although the Raptors are gonna play in an uptempo roster (something like putting up Gay at PF), Gay Derozan and Ross’s roles and specialties are overlapping.. will this end up in one of the three being sent out of Toronto? I’m curious.

    A better comparison for Ross is actually Jason Richardson in his prime with Golden State Warriors, as for our lineup it seems to be Lowry, DeRozan, Gay, Amir, and Valaciunas (final) with Terrence Ross playing a Jason Terry or Jamal Crawford 6th man type role
