    We play in the league as it is, not in the league we wish it would be. You have to play through bad calls. It's just facts, it happens every year, and expecting otherwise is pure fantasy.

    Maybe you were a little overconfident about our victory. We are not good enough to play like shit and defeat a dynastic squad like the Warriors.

    We need to execute better on multiple fronts, and if we do so, we can still win this series. (Depending of course on whether KD returns and what his impact is.)
    I get that there's always going to be blown calls...but having Tony Brothers and Scott Foster referee in the finals is inexcusable. They've proven - FOR YEARS - that they shouldn't be trusted with that responsibility.

    it's not even about conspiracy or anything like that.
    It's just this constant bad officiating that we always complain about for how long now,
    and what's the league doing about it,
    other than the stupid make up calls by the refs that usually don't matter?

    NBA is a multi billion $ enterprise and Silver can't fix this?

    Btw, that call MIGHT cost us the championship in the end.
    Think about that
    Basketball is the hardest sport to officiate IMO. But its everywhere. Do you remember the non call that allowed LA to advance to the Superbowl? Or how about the asinine calls going against Vegas Knights and Avs this year in favour of the Sharks.

    Referees make mistakes. They're humans. Their job is to call it to the best of their abilities, just because a few people think they did a bad job last night does not mean there was a conspiracy against the Raptors

    IT is the referees job to call the games fair.
    Why TF should we give them a pass for NOT doing their job?
    Our players didn't play well that's a given, and credit to GSW's D or their game plan,
    but you can't blame our players for not being 'good enough',
    they did their best despite the challenge that is a well oiled champion team with a very good coach.

    Let's stop with this defeatist attitude and GIVE RESPECT to your team, for crying out loud.

    I knew you were going to say 'because its the NBA'. That's not good enough. The league shouldn't be in the business of handing out competitive advantages.

    To defeat the Warriors I don't know if they can do it if they also must defeat the refs.

    Stop this whining about refs. Lowry, Leonard and Siakam were not good enough last night to beat an injury depleted, sick GSW team.

    To make the finals should earn respect with the league. To present lopsided officiating looks bad on the league.

    RR should not mess with the basketball gods>>>We never kept the same thread starter after a loss just because he had a good run. You congratulate him/her and move on.

    Just like the Raptors, it's next man up....
    Agree

    Raptors have had multiple games this year where the crowd is flat at the beginning of the second half because no one is at their seats. The team worked hard for home court advantage, but no one is there to cheer them at the bgiining of the second half, which is a time GS usually comes out gunning after hashing it out at half time.

    If you consider how high the prices were on the lower bowl, if someone paid say, 10,000 for their seat, and miss the first 6 minutes of the 3rd waiting in line for a beer, that beer just cost $1,250. (Which is probably close to what they're selling the beer for anyway lol , but you know what mean..)
    it's not gonna change ...I'm sure Toronto isn't the only arena with lots of empty seats after halftime

    let's see how hardcore the golden State fans are

    Because it's the NBA. Perfectly fair calls without star treatment and makeup calls doesn't exist in the league.

    It's not like we were down 15 free throws is all I'm saying. The refs may have put us behind the eight ball, but we dug our own graves yesterday.
    ya we shot horribly ..raps have nobody to blame but themselves.
