It’s over in 4, maybe 5 if Golden state sleepwalks too much through game four or whatever. This is the absolute best possible matchup the Warriors could’ve pulled. 

 

I am really happy for the Raptors, though! It’s always fun to see a new team make the Finals. That feels pretty rare for the NBA. 

Nah.

 

It is a sweep only if Jonas, Bogut, Boogie, or Bell try to do their "best Zaza"

I might be the only one that wants the Raptors to beat the Dubs.

 

Anyone else?

EVERYONE (not from the Bay Area) wants the Raptors to beat the Warriors. They just aren’t going to.

I think most of North America, wants to see the Raptors win the 'chip, due to Warriors fatigue alone, but I sure as Hell don't think they can.

 

 

Speaking of Hell, Art Briles. collision course

Is Iguodola playing game 1?

 

Toronto is really good. Probably more complete than the 2018 Cavs. I'm hoping for a good Finals. And a Raps win, though that's kind of greedy.

Raptors are good, but no rook NBA coach should wear a Nike made cap all the time.

Nick does have some fly suits though.  That Game 6 grey suit with royal blue checkers was kidnd dope.

Threw this together tonight, because honestly this Raptors run reminds me a lot of the Leafs in '93 and I couldn't help but combine both postseasons' most famous moments together in some way.

Leonard is playing like he's the best player in the world, which he probably was 2 years ago before he was assaulted by Zaza. He has the Warriors' number, so he just might carry Them the North to the title as long as nobody else on the Warriors injures him.

Dubs ARE winning a game in Toronto.  They've won a road game in their last 21 playoff series. Raptors ain't winning multiple games at Oracle to break back.

FWIW, Toronto has home court in this series (this take reads the opposite). If GSW get just one in Toronto, the Raptors only need one at Oracle.

Congrats to Toronto and the fans! Always love to see a team get over the hump. Enjoy and savor the moment.

Toronto's only hope is if Durant comes back and, rattled by the Warriors-are-better-without-him talk, hijacks the offense to try and prove otherwise... which could have adverse effects and prove those voices correct. We know how sensitive Durant can be. I guess fatigue from all those trips to the Finals could finally take its toll as well.

 

I'm not gonna say the Raptors have no chance, but I don't see how they pull this off. Without even getting into the actual lineups and matchups, they're going to be under enormous pressure to win those first 2 games on their home floor, and then win at least one at Oracle due to the looming threat of the Warriors eventually getting one in Toronto. And if they do somehow get that 3-0 or 3-1 advantage? Then they have to finish it off and avoid making negative history against one of the most intimidating teams in NBA history, one that can make you feel like you're down 10 points even though you're actually up 15. That's a tall order.

.... and to think this probably wasn't the most painful sports memory that Milwaukee has had in the past calendar year.

Yeah, of course I WANT the Raptors to win it all, but I can't say I will put money on them in the final.

Is this the same guy that was rooting for the Sharks in the other thread?

 

I guess I can't argue with your track record, though.

I like Kawhi but chasing around Curry and then scoring 25 points or more yourself along with the possibility of switching off on to Klay. Warriors in 5.

I’m very happy for the Raptors and their fans but I’m not personally ready for Drake in the finals.

Draymond will kick him in the balls.

As frustrated as I am that the Raptors advanced on a quadruple-doink shot (IMO it's very likely that the Sixers would have won in OT based on momentum in the 4th) I said I'm behind them and I still am (though I didn't watch any games.)  I'm glad those silly Milwaukee uniforms won't get national attention.  The wordmark is embarrassing.

 

Kawhi is the best I've seen since Kobe and peak LeBron and I like Lowry since his Villanova days.  Coach looks like a douche though.  I just hope that if they win, it's in a normal uniform and not the NORTH ones (same with GSW - win in a primary.)
