If Danny Green remembers how to shoot the basketball, Raps in 7. It’s a big if

A lot of Raptor's fans on this board :lol:

I'd say Golden State in 6 but praying that I am wrong.

A little surprising results here... the Warriors are back to back champs and even without KD, they aren't going to give the Raps any breaks.
This is definitely the toughest match-up for the Raps and they might be the East team with the best shot of actually beating GS.

We all know what GS is like, even without KD, this core group has won a chip and has only matured since then, they move the ball beautifully and have 2 of the best shooters ever so there will be no freebies. Iggy and KDs health are 2 of the biggest question marks, but they still have 3 all stars, decent roll players, and a lot of experience on this stage.

The Raps MO has been suffocating defense, the ability to generate wide open looks and Kawhi... so it's all going to come down to how much they can frustrated the splash brothers, the role players continuing to step up, and their ability to hit open shots. Kawhi is going to Kawhi, and Lowry seems to be getting better as the series go on, but the Raps will still need some of their depth to step up each game like they did to get here... Gasol needs to be less hesitant to shoot, Freddy needs to keep up his breakout performances and Danny G needs to start making some of these shots we've seen him drain all regular season long if the Raps are going to have a chance. Oh, and a shout out to Nick Nurse, the rookie NBA coach has really shown he belongs in this setting with some great adjustments to swing games and series back in the Raps favor. OG possibly coming back for the finals is a small piece that could make a significant difference as well.

All in all, I'll take the Raps in 7 (no road wins for either team), but a lot of things have to go right (which they have so far).

Very surprising results up there, but considering how many Raptors fans are on this forum... I guess most of them have too much high expectations, need be careful to not fall to the ground way too harshly

I don't think those ppl actually think we'll win lol. It's just a thing we do. Hence the phrase "raps in 4" even though we've literally never won a series in 4 games before.

My pick is Warriors in 5 but I'm rooting for the Raptors. So hoping that I'm wrong. It will be like watching the Patriots win again, if the Warriors win.
Trust the Process it is our shot to be a solid franchise again, we are the originals we are the Philadelphia 76ers!

yes you are so brave :lol: and everyone else can't believe the majority on realgm think Toronto is going to win when the warriors are heavy favorites.

If KD comes back, warriors in 6.
If not, raptors in 5.

They need their centers to win, and honestly, Cousins is a no show. Clearly he's not 100% OK. Even if KD comes back, he won't be 100%.

Kawhi hasn't even scored 30+ points.

I think TO has a chance to win in 6 with all of the Warriors injuries. It wouldn't be shocking if GS comes back and wins in 5 though.
