2020 Playoffs: (2) Toronto vs. (3) Boston

Postby Lamrock on Mon Aug 24, 2020 2:31 pm

The first second round match-up is already set, as the Celtics sweep the shorthanded Sixers, and for the first time ever, Raps in 4 has happened. Unfortunately for Toronto, Kyle Lowry has an ankle sprain which could hold him back in this series. However, Gordon Hayward is also hurt (what else is new?) Toronto has been the best team in the bubble, and with how Milwaukee has been playing, I think they're the odds-on favorite to make the finals.

The Celtics are a good team with a bright future, but I think the Raptors' elite defense shuts them down. Give me Toronto in 6.

Is it just me or did the Nets and Philly just bent over and let themselves get fucked? Uninspired basketball, man.

If there's one thing I hate more than the Clippers, it's the Celtics. Raps in 5. Fuck the Celtics.

Can't blame them. The Nets don't have the talent to matchup with the Raptors. Embiid is the only one showing up for the Sixers.

Crude but accurate analysis. :lol:

I don't blame them for folding. They had no chance to make a deep run with the injuries and they probably just wanted to go home to their families.

Probably the best matchup in the playoffs thus far. Gotta go with the Raps in 6. They play great defense, and they all play on a string.

Best series of 2020 so far IMHO.
As a Raptors fan, I am pretty proud of my guys, given this was supposed to be a "getting ready for the future" season.

May the better team win.

Last night I had a dream Toronto played Miami in the next round and at the end of the game a Raptors player punched Dwyane Wade in the face. Let's see if my dream is right lol

What a swing, though. They were .5 seconds away from 0-3 and now they are at game 7.

So, confession time. It was me, accidentally, despite the fact my official posted pick was Raptors in 6.

Unfortunately more dumb luck than high IQ.
