This week on The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, I have called in the boys from the world wide roundtable to talk ball and we talk playoffs!  Joined by my brother Mike, Greg Mason, and Blair Miller we discuss:

  • Before we go forward and look at game 6- we do a quick recap of game 5
  • The tweet I never sent @therealphdsteve “Classic Raptors fans, always crying. Even when they are winning 3-2 in a best of 7 series with home court”
  • So did the Raps win this game or did BKN loose it?
  • What’s the bigger story: Raps up 91-69 at the end of 3 quarters OR BKN Scoring 44 in the 4th to tie the game with 2 mins remaining
  • Who has the momentum going into Game 6?
  •  Are the refs still an issue? Do conspiracy theories to remove the Raps from the playoffs still hold true?
  • Who starts for the Raps and what does Casey’s rotation look like in this pivotal game?
  • The new #morecowbell sound byte gets introduced
  • Mike, Greg, Blair all take turns finishing these sentences:
  1. “Raps win this game if…..”
  2. “BKN wins this game if….”
  • A quick look at the other side of the Eastern Conference playoffs bracket and then over to the West
  • Friend of the podcast Anthony Q. Farrell  wrote a great piece here on the 1st round.
  • Win or lose the Raptors have gained immense experience that will help them going forward.  Way better than tanking
