Single-elimination playoffs means that the 905 had only one chance to beat the team that had defeated them 3 times. This was the matchup that worried me the most.
Having clinched a playoff spot, sitting at the top of the East with a league-best, and playing an eliminated team, the Raptors 905 had every reason to take it easy. They didn't.
The woes of the games leading up to the Showcase Cup are long behind and wiped from the record as the Raptors 905 begin the G League regular season.
A much closer game than the previous night, the Raptors 905, along with members of the parent squad, defeat the Westchester Knicks 119-116 and take series 2-0.
