If Toronto makes the playoffs 

Post#1 » by ZUDAMAGIC » Fri Feb 22, 2013 11:35 pm

Any chance they could give miami a tough time and maybe darkhorses? There 7-3 with rudy gay and look like a new team even match well with heat.. once bargnani embraces his new role and performs again i can see it going more than a 5 game series.

5 games max, LeBron would totally own. A better match-up for Raptors would actually of been NY/ Or Indiana as they are 4-1 against them this year.

Yeah, about 1 in a million... So I'm telling you there's a chance.

100:1 seems like about the right range. If they could ever get to 7th place and face the Knicks, it could very well be a 6 or 7 game series. Them getting to 7th might be less likely than them beating the Heat, though.

The real question is how many games will it take for the Raptors to win it all in the playoffs

My guess is 16 games

(1) Heat vs (8) Raptors --> Raps in 4
(4) Chicago vs (8) Raptors --> Raps in 4
(2) Pacers vs (8) Raptors --> Raps in 4

The Finals
(2 - West) OKC vs (8 -East) Raptors --> Raps in 4

The Toronto Raptors win the 2012-2013 NBA championship undefeated.

Raps in 4!

You think that's something? Watch how upset Kobe is if the lakers miss the playoffs.
