    Default Playoff Momentum

    I may be wrong but I feel the longer this series goes on the better chance we are going to win this series

    the main knock against the raptors going into this series was the lack of playoff experience. besides that I don't recall anything major that was in their favor besides the refs

    so the longer this goes on and the more comfortable the raptors get playing in a playoff atmosphere (especially Terrence Ross I hope ) the more likely I feel we are going to impose our will and shut the nets down

    I think/hope we take game 3, nets take game 4 then we win in 6 or 7

    what do you guys think?

    I feel that as well. We have to win in 5 or 6 because I think we will shit the bed in game 7 just like game one. Too much pressure.

    That is, assuming we split the next 2 games at Barclay's.

    I agree , however, to win series we must put ourselves in a position to win. To do that we must split in Brooklyn. Then hold home court.

    Agreed. I only see positives from extending the series for the Raps. Let us discuss this further in the purple den...

    I agree with GLF. Lets get it done in 6 games max. We've seen what happens when this team gets nervous, and we know what to expect from Brooklyn's stars and vets in game 7. Therefore, it is imperative that we get the job done in 5-6 games.

    Winning in 5 means taking 3 straight. That's quite a steep hill to climb.

    i like our chances even in a game 7
    when I break it down I think we are the superior team in a lot categories
    better coach, better center, I say the same at PF, they are superior at SF, we got a better SG and a better PG
    we are a great road team ( up their with Miami for record )

    experience was their one trump card over us and as the series goes and we become more comfortable with the playoff atmosphere I think it will be a less of a factor for us even in a game 7

    maybe im just sick of pundits, analysts and broadcasters beating us over the head with experience

    Toronto isn't clutch. Feel better trying to win 6 vs going to 7. Feel better up 2 with 20 sec on the clock vs down 1.
