Resident-douchebag, Paul Pierce has commented on the Raptors not having what it takes to win a playoff series:
“We haven’t done particularly well against Toronto, but I don’t feel they have the ‘It’ that makes you worried. There isn’t a team I look at in the Eastern Conference that makes me say, ‘They are intimidating, we don’t have a chance.’”
He’s trying to start some mental wars before any series gets underway. DeRozan was asked to comment about the quote:
DeRozan laughed off Pierce’s comments that Raptors don’t have “it” factor. Was surprised to hear, said he’ll use it as further motivation

It’s all up in the air heading into tonight, but early results from the poll indicate that Raptors fans would much rather face the inexperienced Milwaukee Bucks than the Wizards who they have swept.
