Celt or Rex 

Post#1 » by MHeat0279 » Sat Sep 5, 2020 2:25 pm

statistically speaking we should start looking ahead to next round. Who would you rather face? I think Boston will be a more difficult matchup for the Heat, they have fast perimeter guys, and that is one of our defensive weakness. Also Jalen is looking unstoppable. What do you guys think?

Hence Statistically speaking, it is almost impossible to climb out of a 0-3 hole and win the series. Statistically speaking the Bucks are done.

God he was so bad that series. Mike Bibbyesque.

I think we had a decent shot against both clubs, but I’m too terrified to look past Milwaukee at this point. Focus on the task at hand, deal with the next round once we know we are in.

Boston will beat us in 5. Maybe 6 if someone gets hot. We can't defend their perimeter onslaught to 4 wins. I don't see it.

Boston is a worse match up for the heat, not saying Raps are bad by any means, but this is a sport in which match ups are very important.

IMO we are going to face the Celtics. They have been playing great and i believe are too good for the Raps this season. That being said, I'd rather face the Celtics. I think we match up well with their size down low. Neither opponent will be easy IMO.

It feels like someone always hits everything when we play the Raps. But I'd still prefer them over the Celtics. Unless we have a player that can do to Tatum what Matthews did to Jimmy there's just too much offense

I actually think we match up much better with Boston.

- we always struggle with Toronto’s size. Bam struggles against multiple bigs and Crowder would be stuck on Ibaka.

- Theis will be a breath of fresh air compared to Lopez and will allow Bam to actually bang around on the inside.

- Jae and Kelly will be ultra motivated to play well against former team.

- We’re the much more experienced team vs Boston. People underestimate the championship pedigree and experience those Toronto players got last year.

I'd rather the Celtics. They really only go 6 deep. and I'd take my chances on our wing defenders slowing down their wings. Right now I got Dragic out playing Kemba. Raptors may be an easier matchup but Lowry got that playoff magic lol I dont want any part of it

If our guys got super aggressive, they could foul them boys out quick enough. Punch that Finals ticket.

Yeah, give me the Celtics please but let the Raptors win one more. I want a tired Boston team and a 3-day break for the team.

i think this is key, to attack their perimeter guys, if not we will get torched by theirs.
our perimeter defense is one of our biggest weaknesses, with Drob and Herro being weak defenders, also the dragon is nothing to write home about when it comes to defense.
