Amir Johnson and Jonas Valaciunas lock arms to form an impenetrable double screen.

Yea, this is not exactly what you will find in a NBA Playbook of any kind, but it does remind me of a game I used to play as a child and the Raptors clearly have no idea what the rules are. You know the game, Red Rover, where children stand side by side, hand in hand (Note: this is also one of the rare occasions where boys will risk the chances of catching cooties, to come in contact of the other known species on Earth, called girls) to form some sort of human wall/gate on opposing sides, and take turns to yell "Red Rover, Red Rover, We want *insert name here* to come over," as they brace themselves, to merciless knock down, the said person to the ground. And as a veteran of the game, I can tell you that the most viable way to get pass, without any hiccups, were to go through the linked arms of girls, because let's be real, no one wants to be Billy, and be that guy that runs through two ham sized arms of two boys in early puberty. I don't know if aware of this, but getting clothes-lined is never fun. And now that I think about it, Elementary school was a pretty cruel place.
