    Wrong attitude.

    We'll win on our merits, not depending on the matchup. You think MIA or IND are worried about who they get in the first round?

    Loser's mentality. Gotta break that habit. Team plays like it should, won't matter who's taking the beating.

    I think we are capable of beating all those teams in a series. I would prefer to avoid CHI, BKN, and NYK due to experience in the case of the latter, and Thibs plus defence for the former. Preferably DET tho.
    Agreed, I would've thrown ATL in the mix, but we don't have to worry about the boobless Horford.

    if we play Charlotte , Detroit, Washington, Atlanta. we could win for sure Brooklyn has a lot of experience so I could see them winning. I couldn't see New York beating us but they have a chance.

    In pure raptors fashion, we will stun everyone and keep the 3 seed and play our first round against the surging Derrick Rose led Bulls

    I chose Washington. I think if we can get them into a half court style game with little to no fast breaks for them, its a 4 or 5 game series for us. They rank 21 in offensive efficiency with Charlotte and Chicago the only notable teams beside the **** teams below them. Toronto currently ranks 6 in defensive efficiency. They rank in the top-5 for fast break ppg, so you can imagine how that helps their offensive efficiency. The Raps have held them to 88 points both meetings this year. I like how we match-up against them at every position and I think our bench is definitely better. That being said, we currently have Chicago and I like us against them as well.

    I don't want to face Brooklyn or Charlotte. NYK I would be fine with.

    Al Jefferson is a raptors killer

    I'm not willing to write off Charlotte as an easy opponent just yet. They've given us trouble over the past 2 seasons. I realize we haven't faced them since the Rudy trade, but still.

    I voted for Detroit. That team is a mess. No chemistry at all.

    Charlotte worries me a bit since the Raptors usually struggle against them. I think that our improved focus and depth can help us beat them in a playoff series though.

    Yep. Those two, if they get fully healthy, they'd each have a superstar and veterans with title experience. It's a scary combo.

    If the Knicks get healthy, they are essentially the same 50+ wins team that took the Pacers to 6 games despite Tyson Chandler being unhealthy.

    It all depends entirely on health. Knicks and Nets could easily be better than the Raptors in May, or not.

    Of the Options, I'd say only Charlotte and Detroit are sure bets. Or nearest to anyway.
    Yep, I'll take Charlotte. No experience, no efficient scoring, kind of a worse version of the Raptors. They can get hot and win a game or two, but I'd feel great about facing them. However, it looks they are free falling out of playoffs.

    I think I'd pick the Bulls as my no.2. I think they are clearly worse now, even if they won a few games lately. I don't think even the coach or experience would help them enough. They basically need Mike Dunleavy to be their 1st or 2nd scoring option. I mean, come on. If they can win a playoff round with that roster, then just forget about stars, forget about Ujiri and rebuilding strategies, offer Thibodeau 30 mil a year and go.

    Wizards or Detroit and we advance. No way they can handle our bench mob
    I think to the opposite, Detroit would be very tough for the Raptors bench. But Raptors starting lineup plays much better and fits better, so hopefully that would be enough.

    Overall, I think both of those are beatable. Not the worst options.
