    Anyone else getting nervous seeing that we’re 8pt favorites or espn has us with an 88% chance to win. Do we know something they don’t (we’re justly paranoid) or do they know something we don’t (we’re unjustly paranoid)?
    I think it's the second one.

      On paper we should absolutely blow them away. They don't even exploit any weaknesses we have matchup wise.

        Kind of a weird parallel between these 2 teams I noticed. Since 2015 almost 80% of the rosters have changed, so we're very different. But also the cores of both teams are the exact same, so we're still very similar. While the benches have been completely changed, both teams still rely on the same dynamic all star backcourts, and the same 7 foot Euro Giant in the middle.

        Also, we've progressed, and they've regressed.

          Porter is pretty good and has grown in Washington. But what I like about their bench is they don't really have many energy guys. Usually those are the type of guys that give our bench fits (thinking Harrell in LAC or Adebayo in Miami).

          Satoransky is a big PG which might be tough for either Delon, Lowry or Fred to handle, but the reverse could be true as well.

          Wizards are better when they move the ball around. Wall seems to curtail that a bit.. so that's a good thing. We just need Wall to play selfish and try to make winning plays on his own.

              Mike Scott is that scrub who'll piss you off because he keeps making threes
              Only one thing matters: We The Champs.

                Edit 1) Looks like the New Yorker beat me to it


                Edit 2) After all my conspiracy complaining, we are not playing at 9:00 am on ESPN ocho. 5:30 on the real ESPN. Not too shabby.
                Thanks for sharing. Nice quick read but alarmingly accurate. But kids, as one of RR's overlords Zach Lowe so succinctly puts it:

                Lowe, for his part, believes Raptors fans should alter their collective psyche this time around. “Be confident in your team,” he said. “They’ve been the best team in the East all year. Try that on, see how it feels, workshop it for a day.”
