    NOTES:
    • Nurse was asked about the team having trouble closing out series in the past. "This team or this organization? Well, this team, lets see if they can start their own history tomorrow... You just dont want to screw around in these series. If you lose this one you're back in Orlando, you're adding miles and stress... I just want this team to form it's identity. What's happened in the past has no bearing or relevance to what's happening now for me." (@jlew1050)
    • In game 4, Kawhi scored the 4th most points in a playoff game by a Raptor on 20 or fewer FGA. The top 3 spots all belong to Kyle Lowry.
    • OG Anunoby was with the Raptors today. Nurse said he's in good spirits, has new glasses. No update on timeline to return. (@BlakeMurphyODC)
    • Research suggests that magic mushrooms might be helpful in overcoming nicotine addiction. Additionally, some other researchers suggest that psychedelic mushrooms can help treat anxiety, OCD, headaches, and post-traumatic stress disorders.
    • A fourth consecutive win in game 5 would be the longest playoff winning streak in Raps history. We've won 3 in a row two other times (2017 and 2001).
    • Usually I change up the lineup pics more for game threads, but we've won three straight so I'm not changing what's working.

      Good idea! But after this series, close out games are going to be much harder to predict. Don't want to jinx ourselves.

        Zoomers might actually help to quit smoking? I mean, what do I got to lose!?

        Long live Scrappy.

        Warm up playoffs ends tomorrow and real playoffs start later on this week.

        13 to go. Raps in 5.

          "No update" on OG is mildly worrisome as I believe its 2 weeks tomorrow since his surgery. We are fine in this series, but will miss his defense badly when we face Harris and the giant Sixers. Sliding Kawhi up when Pasal sits only creates a different hole in that series.

                  This one feels a bit anti-climactic (hopefully). Watched Nurse's presser and he was saying all the right things. Just seemed calm and collected and wants to win this one. Does not want to go back to Orlando. Can't see us losing this one. We've solved the Orlando puzzle.

                  Rest may be a bit of an issue.. only 1 day rest and had to travel. But weather is nice so that should help everyone.

                    I think the Raptors biggest issue in Game 1 was overconfidence..lackadaisical play. The bear was poked. They don't wanna be the last series in the East still playing.

                      Vuc and most of others players already threw in the towel. Gordon might be the only one who will show up. Strong first half should break Magic's spirit.

                        Yeah they played that game like it was a regular season game. In a way it was good that we lost that one.

                          Read the post-game quotes. They've all pretty much thrown in the towel. Already bowing down to Kawhi, like Derozan & Lowry did to Lebron. Raps gotta end it quick and not give them even the tiniest glimmer of hope.

                            I like when they do that thing where they pull within 13 on a Ross half court buzzer beater
