NBA Playoffs: Cavaliers will face Raptors in second round

Cleveland set to face Toronto in postseason for the second straight year. The Cavaliers no longer have to wait to see who they will face in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. With a 92-89 win Thursday night, the Toronto Raptors closed their first-round series against the Bucks and set up another matchup with the Cavs. After dropping two of the first three games against Milwaukee, Toronto put together three straight wins to advance. DeMar DeRozan led the way for Toronto in the series, putting up a team-high 21.8 points per game. Deadline addition Serge Ibaka was also a...

NBA Playoffs 2017: Raptors almost collapse, hang on to beat Bucks, win series

This wasn’t the most inspiring performance the Raptors churned out in this series, but the Raptors have finally won a series in less than the maximum number of games. Trust is a fleeting concept when it comes to these Raptors. After a month and a half of post-trade deadline build-up, there was a belief that this team, with Serge Ibaka, P.J. Tucker, and a growing bank of playoff experience to lean on, was different. While the PTSD of past playoff disappointments certainly lingered, there was an air of confidence surrounding the team heading into the playoffs for the first time in the...

NBA Playoffs open thread: Bucks vs. Raptors and Hawks vs. Wizards

The Cavs play the winner of Bucks-Raptors. We’ll know more after tonight The Cavs won’t play for another week, but the NBA rolls on. Bucks-Raptors is tonight, and the series is tied up at 2. The Cavs will play the winner in Cleveland next Monday night. Either series promises fun storylines.

NBA Playoffs 2017: Should the Raptors start Ibaka at centre?

NBA Playoffs 2017: Should the Raptors start Ibaka at centre?

Toronto is having success with their small lineup in this series. Is it time to start games that way? Basketball is a game of runs, and through two games, this Milwaukee-Toronto series is no different. Painful, anxiety-inducing, sweat-it-out runs. In Game 2, the Raptors managed to rip off four significant runs, which was one too many for the Bucks to claw back from. Kyle Lowry’s jumper was the clincher, and his play was the headline story of the Raptors’ 106-100 win. The subhead, though, was Serge Ibaka. Coming in with a bum ankle, Ibaka played 36 minutes and had 16 points, seven...

Raptors will select 23rd in the 2017 NBA Draft

Raptors will select 23rd in the 2017 NBA Draft

Because that’s what’s on our minds at this precise moment. Setting aside the playoffs for one second, the NBA worked out its draft tie-breakers this afternoon and we know now the Raptors will draft from the 23rd spot. Sadly there’s no golden deal with the Knicks sitting there to secure Toronto a top 10 pick. There were, however, some other deals from Masai Ujiri that got the Raptors into no. 23. This was the pick they technically got from Milwaukee (via the Clippers) for Norman Powell, which was then flipped to the Magic for Serge Ibaka. As was announced at the time, the pick was to...

NBA Playoffs: Serge Ibaka is a game-time decision for Game 2

NBA Playoffs: Serge Ibaka is a game-time decision for Game 2

Not the best news for today. Not that the Raptors (and their fans) needed more reasons to feel nervous today, but here we are. The news from shootaround this morning is that Serge Ibaka will be a game-time decision to play in Game 2. One imagines the Bucks already salivating at the prospect. Ibaka went through shoot around but Casey says he'll be a game-time decision. His left ankle was heavily taped. Would expect him to play— Josh Lewenberg (@JLew1050) April 18, 2017 In Game 1, Ibaka came down on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s foot after a 3-point attempt and was slow to get up. He...

NBA Playoffs 2017: On the eve of Game 2, some Raptors-related worries

Serge Ibaka is day-to-day, Matthew Dellavedova is dirty, and more. The Raptors have spent the past two days preparing for the second game of their opening round series against the Bucks. Despite this being the team’s fourth straight post-season appearance, Toronto is in a jumble after yet another disappointing Game 1 performance at home, a garbage time 97-83 loss. We’d like to shake the result off, but the news out of the post-game, and the two days that followed, has been a mix of perplexing and concerning. Tomorrow’s 7pm tip-off can’t come soon enough. (Or may be here too soon,...

If this new defensive culture holds and Kyle Lowry can fast track his learning curve with his new teammates, the Raptors can make some noise in the postseason
