Excellent finish. FvV is so key to the rotation but I really hope he doesn’t rush back.

Please finish this on Friday. The Wizards are such an unlikeable group that I don’t want to see their faces on TV anymore.

Refs don't respect Poeltl at all. Maybe reverse racism is a thing.

Raptors would be better off playing Cleveland rather than Indiana. Cavs are flaming garbage + one amazing player.

The only argument against this, as I see it, is corrupt reffing.

Seems strange that the guy who makes the whole team work is a sub-6', 2nd year, undrafted, 16th man, 3rd PG. FvV is so damn awesome.

Siakam, with confidence, is so much fun to watch.

FORMER 16th man. The dude is their sixth man off the bench but the fourth most important player. Jonas Valanciunas also has to play consistently from now on. He was a BEAST tonight. Picking up on switches and pick and rolls much better than he ever has. Creating turnovers, grabbing rebounds and scoring. He is an absolute beast, he can even take on smaller lineups a little better now, and because of his height advantage, the smaller opposition can't out rebound him.

Oh, he's definitely the 6th man. Just pointing out where he was last year compared to what he means now.

The evolution of JV since Christmas or so has been outstanding. He's not as plodding and is really engaged. Seeing him eat small-ball line-ups alive when they penetrate and on rebounds was a lot of fun the last two games.

That was no ordinary 8th place team. An 8 seed is a team like Miami, or Detroit. The East was really good this year.

Yesterday showed that he's the most important guy off the bench and they only go if he's there. They need him. Delon, Norm, Serge all seem like luxuries. Only problem is without Serge you leave a gaping hole up at the PF spot. Maybe we can trade Norm for a PF that's got potential but is sitting.

Delon doesn't make enough money to make a difference. Serge makes so much it'd be hard to move him and improve the team.

Norm and Bebe are gone imo. His QO is 4.1 and I can't see the Raps giving that to the 3rd C.

That’s my take. The big hope is that the youth strategy holds and then can just tire him out over the course of the series.

The Raptors have to get out to an early series lead like the Pacers did, but they have to close it out in 6 unlike the Pacers. If this goes 7 the best player in the world will win it.

OG and Pascal just have to constantly be on him. Make him move. If they can contain him they should be able to win no problem. Containing him is a ridiculous ask though.

Yeah, it's pretty clear from watching the Pacers series that you can beat the Cavaliers if you can force everyone else to beat you. Way easier said than done as you said though.

I dont know how you can continue with this core if the Raptors lose this series. The East will not be this weak again. Boston and Philly are on the rise and LBJ will reload wherever he goes next year.

No one, literally not a person, could hit a shot. Missed every three and bounced simple put-backs off the rim and backboard. Had multiple (at least 5) opportunities to win and missed every one in embarrassing fashion.
