    Raps in 7, once again. I would say 6, but I just don't see them closing it out in Miami.

    I also think Kyle is gonna break out of his shooting funk.

    It'll be interesting going against both a team with a good coach and a roster greater than just Paul George. We had troubles scoring at the rim against Mahinmi and Turner, now try Whiteside, plus Miami still has good perimeter defenders...

    This being said, I see Norman Powell getting 30 min a game and leading us to a series win in 6 games!

    Raptors in 7 in da 6ix

    Powell plays more

    Ross starts to falls out the rotation
    JJ gets to play in atleast one game

    Lowry plays like normal lowry
    Derozan plays like him normal self

    JV doesnt do as good with Whiteside defending him however has atleast one 20/10 or 18/12 game

    Bismack gets the block of the plays
    Bismack also gets dunked on

    Whiteside averages 4 blocks but also 4 fouls
    Whiteside also gets ejected in atleast one game

    A game winner happens in one of the games

    And lastly, Crowd/Jurasstic Park chants "Beats the Cavs" in game 7 win

    Atleast one of those predictions are true, likely most of them

    Raps in 6. This time we take both at home, split the road games, drop the 5th as their shooters catch fire and close it out in Miami.

    Inside the*#Raptors*lockerroom no excessive cheering. Binders are by each locker, they read: Eastern Conference Round 2 Toronto vs Miami

    Proven.


    "Norman" comes from the old Germanic byname meaning "northman" or "Man from the North".

    The legend was true.

    My biggest worry is Kyle. We all know he isn't shooting the ball well because of the elbow. Yes Hill is a very good defender and played good defense on him but it was mostly him just not being able to shoot anymore. I don't see why his shot all of a sudden comes back when his elbow is not going to get any better until the offseason. And I honestly believe we can't get far in the playoffs with Kyle shooting like that. First round yes but he needs to hit shots for us. Especially against a well coached and experienced team like Miami. But we shall see. Also whiteside scares me because he literally alters and blocks everything that comes into the lane. We are going to have to drive and kick or drive and dish a lot because he is coming to block everything

    If Kyle's shot comes even somewhat back and we stop playing so tense and play more free I definitely think we have a good chance of winning the series. But we gotta play much smarter.

    There was a part of me, during that 4th quarter collapse where our beloved team tried to play the game of "keepaway" for the last 6-8 minutes of the game. 6-8 minutes whereupon the Raptors inexplicably thought they could put the game away by simply wishing the clock would just run out without actually doing anything with the ball. It was 6-8 minutes where the Raptors became not Canada's only NBA team but Canada's only NFL team and proceeded to try to run out the clock by kneeling and letting the defense do the work. (Which worked only because Indiana only has one good player.) 6-8 minutes where I began to cheer for Indiana to complete the comeback so we could blow this thing up. Probably the most awful 6-8 minutes of playoff basketball I've ever seen in my life, definitely the worst last 6-8 minutes of a playoff game I've seen. If this opponent had more than Paul George, Indiana scores 30 points in the 4th quarter and heads off to play Miami on Tuesday. Though if they had more than Paul George it would've been over sooner.

    I think is over guys. The last 7 games have convinced me that we don't have what it takes to win big games and that the only reason we pulled this last series out is because the Pacers only had 1 good player. The deeper we get into the playoffs, the bigger the games become and I envision our "stars" shrink even more as the stage gets larger. The Heat, meanwhile, don't have a player of Paul George's caliber anymore, but a bunch of former Paul Georges that know what it takes and far superior coaching.

    The only way the Raptors can win a game in this series is if it doesn't realize how big it is to have made it this far. The second these guys realize we're supposed to win this series, we'll lose. I'm going with 4-0 Miami.
    your pal,

    I have said Raps in 7 with indiana
    Now, Raps in 7 with heat.

    For me, protecting the home court is the key.
