    Yo, I'm not sure how many of you guys are on instagram but our boys are putting up some very enjoyable candid content on their stories at the moment. Pascal was on live with Demar a day or two ago, and then this evening Freddy was on live for a while with Demar and then later with Pascal. Freddy's live story should be there for a while today as I think they last 24 hours. They're talking pretty candidly about team arguments and stuff, just laughing their asses off. Highly entertaining.

    They were joking a lot about different people getting mad... Kyle getting ornery in practice and stuff.

    They talked about this one moment I never caught wind of in the playoffs when Danny was super pissed in this Sixers series cause JJ was on him and he wanted to roast him. During a timeout DG chewed everybody out to get him the ball in the post. He got it the very next play. It doesn't go well.

    They referenced the story in Phil Handy's posts... here it is here.

    Jokes



    ((that's just a post from someone else but if you guys know how to follow them (our guys) for their stories, I endorse.))

    Maybe let’s start a new thread for game 7. Not sure it would be good luck for me to do it. 😉

    Game 7 on Mother’s Day? Not sure I can watch it. Maybe I can try to catch the last few seconds.

    I just think it's slow with all that's going on. Not to mention it's not Raptors night tonight.

    Funny watching the run again is how many things you remember perfectly and so many details you also forgot happening. Refs are always trash though lol

    Game 6 Preview: Raptors vs Sixers

    Toronto Raptors (3-2) @ Philadelphia 76ers (2-3)

    When: Tomorrow
    Where: Wells Fargo Center

    Leading into tomorrow's game:
    Injury report: For the Raptors, OG Anunoby (appendectomy), Chris Boucher (back spasms) and Jordan Loyd (coach’s decision) are out. For the Sixers, the injury report is to be determined.
    Opportunity awaits: Thanks to a dominant Game 5 win at Scotiabank Arena tonight, the Raptors are in Philadelphia with a 3-2 series lead and an opportunity to close out their best-of-seven series. This is the third time in three years that Toronto has had an opportunity to close out a series on the road. The Raptors won Game 6 in Milwaukee against the Bucks in 2017 and also closed out their first-round series against the Washington Wizards in 2018 in Game 6 on the road.
    Recent history: Toronto took control of their second-round series against Philadelphia with a 125-89 Game 5 victory at home. The win set a franchise record for largest margin of victory in a postseason game as six Raptors finished in double figures and the team finished the game 16-for-40 from beyond the three-point line. Kawhi Leonard has led the way in the first four games of the series, and he finished with a 21-point, 13-rebound double-double, also adding four assists and two steals. He received plenty of help from his teammates on both ends of the floor on Tuesday and the result was a Raptors victory that at one point saw the team lead by as many as 40 points. Jimmy Butler led the Sixers with 22 points and seven assists in the loss.
    Extra Assists
    Spicy bounce back: One game after finishing with nine points on 2-for-10 shooting after being limited because of a sore right calf injury, Pascal Siakam put in a strong performance in Game 5. He led the team in scoring, putting up 25 points to go with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot in 34 minutes. Siakam has been fantastic for Toronto in the postseason, averaging 21.7 points to serve as the team’s second-leading scorer.
    Gritty performance: Game 5 was a roller coaster for Serge Ibaka. After taking an accidental elbow to the head from teammate Kawhi Leonard while under the basket, Ibaka had to leave the game to receive three stitches. He emerged from the locker room tunnel shortly afterward, a bandage on his head, and checked back into the game. Ibaka was huge for the Raptors in the team’s Game 4 win on the road, and he was equally as impressive in Game 5. In 22 minutes off the bench, he scored 10 points and was a +27. “Serge is playing with a tremendous amount of pride right now,” Nick Nurse said after the game. “He’s being big, he’s being active, he’s being a force out there.”
    Hustle and go: The Raptors put in a fantastic performance in Game 5, but it was the little things that stood out most. From outrebounding a much longer Sixers team 42-37 to forcing Philadelphia into 19 turnovers and scoring 31 points off their miscues (the Sixers scored 15 points off Toronto’s turnovers), the Raptors did everything to give themselves an opportunity to win the game and it paid off big. Toronto shot 49 percent from the floor and 40 percent from the three-point line, while the defence held the Sixers to 42 percent shooting and 25 percent shooting from beyond the arc. The Raptors also pushed the pace, outscoring the Sixers 33-8 in fast-break points. With the series shifting back to Philadelphia and with the Sixers knowing they must win Game 6 or lose the series, the Raptors know they have to be ready to take Philadelphia’s best punch when the ball goes up tomorrow night.
