This is exactly why I wanted to avoid the Wiz. Just too many weapons that can kill you if they are locked in.

I think this is more indicative of Toronto's history as a choking playoff team than anything.

It looks like Lowry and DeRozan are well on their way to their usual game 1 dud performance.

Raptors are rattled.

Yep, Derozan and Lowry are great regular season fantasy basketball stars, but not in the postseason. I've seen enough, and OG Anunoby notwithstanding, owing to this being his first postseason, the only guy in Toronto's starting lineup who I actually trust, come playoff time, is Ibaka. Activate the #SergeProtector ;D.

You are right, Ibaka really came to play.

Derozan and Lowry only have 8 shots and have only made 2.

The Raps open the 3rd with a 11-2 run...

agreed ... they have more go too guys ,  than Raptors e still basically a two man team , plus Ibaka s rebounding and defense.

I think it will be a great battle.

A bigger question for us is out of these 2 teams, who do we think has a better chance of beating the Cavs in a 7 game series?  Once we beat the Bucks and then the 76ers/Heat, are we gonna be playing Toronto, Washington, or the Cavs in the ECF?

That was in no way, shape, or form a Flagrant.  Kyle Lowry is a well-known flopper and that foul was nothing more than a good, hard playoff foul.  These refs should be ashamed.

That was such a flop


Side note- raptor fans going crazy like itís game 7 of the finals even though itís not even crunch time yet. This series with the wizards might be long. Wiz are putting up a nice fight and the lead has changed 15 times in this game so far

Slow down, lol. Do you really believe that we can beat those teams with our depleted roster?

I love guys who get fired up in big games.  I despise when bums like Miles and Wright talk trash like they're actually any good.

The Celtics still have a lot of talented players playing. They could still win in these playoffs!

Absolutely.  The Bucks are good enough to take us to 6 games but Giannis isn't gonna beat us alone.  The Heat we'd sweep or beat in 5 games.  Nothing about them scares me one bit.  The 76ers with Embiid would be a tough 7 game series but Horford can defend him like nobody else can.  And neither Simmons or Fultz are good enough offensively to carry them.

Delon Wright is hardly a bum, imo, and he's played really well, today.
