11/20/16 Lest we forget - The Sacramento Screw Job.
We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.
Can't escape the fact that Cleveland could end up in 2nd when its all over. Can only play for seeding when there are 1 or 2 games left really.. especially with the amount of parity we're seeing in the top 5/6. Raptors should try to win every game.
Other than the 3 games against Boston and Washington in the next week, the Raptors only play a single team with a superior record than theirs (that's a record with the Raps stumbling through the last 6 weeks due to injuries/general malaise) and that's the Cavs to end the season.
The only other games against teams that are over .500 are vs OKC, Atlanta, Indyx2 (though the NO game will be interesting). Not guaranteeing wins of course, but come on.
Basically my point is that if the Raps aren't able to catch up with that schedule then you shouldn't feel confident about them even winning a first round series.
Two beer away from being two beers away.
IMO, at least on paper, this team will take a very long time to be as good as it is right now again. The goal is not ECF... It's the NBA championship.
