  • Game 5 Playoffs Round 1: Orlando Magic @ Toronto Raptors March 24 8PM Sportsnet

    What a game! Raps beat the magic & the officials again.

    It's over. Go Raps go!!!
    • 3-1 series lead against Magic in Game 4


    Kate Beirness:

    “This was the end for Orlando, the dagger! Any hope they had after game 1, was gone.

    "My biggest takeaway… thank you for load management, because a healthy superstar in the post season is a scary, scary thing!”

    Jack Armstrong:

    “Marc Gasol has been awesome in the Nikola Vucevic match-up. The team's defensive intensity was off the charts here, holding them to 85 points. Kawhi: he’s back! 34 points. Serge Ibaka and Norm Powell both made a huge impact as well.”

    Kia Nurse:

    “The Raptors continued to roll on the road shooting an impressive 53% from the floor. However, Game 4 should forever go down as the night Nick Nurse became a viral sensation. Thanks to an unfavourable call by the referee a SHOCKED Nick Nurse meme took the Internet by storm. The Raptors may have won the game, but the internet is still undefeated.”

    Leo Rautins:

    “The Raps took care of business on the road for game 4 in Orlando, it was over by halftime! Nick Nurse went viral, Nic Vucevic went MIA ... again. The Raps defence imposed their will and Kawhi went off!! 34 points in 35 minutes, rounding into post season form. And as Leonard says, ”road wins are the best, especially in the playoffs!” Now it’s time to head home. Orlando was one of the hottest teams and had one of the top ranked defences since the All Star break, but the Magic Kingdom has suddenly gone dark and cold, because they know their ride is about to end!”

    Rod Black:

    “Best way to frame Game 4 is by using Nick Nurse’s 11 second “freeze face”. Aaah -Magic keep it close early - aaah - Raptors with six blocks - aaah - another T-Ross buzzer beater - aaah - Kawhi is over his sickness - aaah - Raptors are just better - aaah - the end is near - aaah. Thanks, Nick.”

    Josh Lewenberg:

    “What I remember about Game 4: The Nick Nurse meme was born, and we all went through painstaking efforts to avoid Game of Thrones spoilers on Twitter during the fourth quarter. Also, basketball was played and the Raptors won, I think.”

    Kayla Grey:

    “Kawhi with the ball... spin-move to avoid the steal... right to the basket & CUE THE NICK NURSE MOUTH-DROP. The Internet got its memes, and after a not so hot start, the Raptors defence made it very clear that THAT was THAT on the Magic. Kawhi was brilliant. Pascal Siakam got his down the stretch and oh yeah, that Serge Ibaka block. Ruthless.”

              Norm had some pretty baskets this game. I had forgotten about Jodie Meeks.

                Marks, Lin Moreland..... Hopefully they strengthen this end of the roster next season by signing a 3 point specialist, an undrafted future stud & Boucher takes a step forward.

                  It was weird to see Lowry, Fred and Powell on the floor at the same time (Kawhi and Serge)
                  Lin, Moreland, Meeks and Miller at once. Bench just wasn't very good at all

                    The Marc Gasol block on DJ Augustin from this game where he absolutely stuffs him, entirely halting his upward momentum and utterly devouring his soul is one of my all-time favourite blocks.
