    Dear Republic

    I too am disappointed. I too feel like we let one slip away. I too feel this one hurt more than the others.

    BUT upon inflection, this one did not hurt more than the others. Each loss hurt. Game 1 vs Orlando pissed me off, same as Game 2 and 3 and 6 vs Philly. The only cures for those feelings? Winning again.

    That brings us to today. A new day. And on this new day, I remind you of this: 5 teams THIS YEAR ALONE have lost game 1 and won the series. Toronto. Philly. Denver. Milwaukee. Portland. Yes, 5 of the first 12 series had the losing team win game 1. Nearly half. The Raptors themselves have been down in both of their first 2 series, and answered the bell.

    I've heard detractors say today we wasted the Kyle Lowry game. I say to those detractors, nay, we have not wasted the Kyle Lowry game. We have just seen the beginning of the Kyle Lowry games. Lowry is notoriously streaky as we know. And it appears he has found his shot.

    To the detractors, I say, we had 7 players out of 8 play subpar. We had no scorers other than KL2 and Pascal in the 2H, and no scorers other than Kyle in the 4th q. Yes, that means Kawhi, Pascal, Marc, Danny, Serge, Fred, and Norm ALL played worse than they are capable of playing. In most cases much worse. To me, THAT is the anomaly, much more than the Kyle Lowry game.

    On this day, Raptor fans of the Republic, we tuck in our shaky upper lip, we march forward into tomorrow, and beat this beatable Bucks team. Or our boys do. Whatever. We got the best player in the series, we got the vets, and we got Canada. They got a greek guy and some kids who've never been this far.

    Sincerely

    A guy who spends too much time on the boards, sitting on the fence.

    Just win baby. That's the stance I'm taking.
