Toronto Raptors vs. Brooklyn Nets Playoff Series Thread

66 posts in this topic

The young and athletic Toronto Raptors led by dynamic point guard Kyle Lowry, explosive shooter at 2 guard Terrence Ross, and slasher DeMar DeRozan will face up against the veteran led Brooklyn Nets led by playmaker Deron Williams, scorers Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce, and The Big Ticket Kevin Garnett. Should be a very close series although I am expecting the Nets o come out on top.

 

Starters:

Toronto Raptors                                            Brooklyn Nets

PG: Kyle Lowry                                             PG: Deron Williams

SG: Terrance Ross                                      SG: Shaun Livingston

SF: DeMar DeRozan                                    SF: Joe Johnson

PF: Amir Johnson                                         PF: Paul Pierce

C:  Jonas Valanciunas                                  C: Kevin Garnett

 

This should be a very competitive series. Youth vs. Experience to the fullest extent.

I'm definitely rooting for Toronto in this one. I think they have pretty good shot at it too as good as they've been playing. It's amazing that the better seed is an underdog.

I'm a Warriors fan first, but being from Canada I root for the Raps when possible.

Toronto and Brooklyn match up pretty evenly, however the experience of Brooklyn will be the difference in this one.

It's too bad Toronto with the type of season they had ended up with Brooklyn as their first round opponent. It was looking like it's be Washington up until the last night of games.

Lowry is playing for a contract this off season so I expect to him to have a big series win or lose. Ive watched almost every Raps game this year, there inability to close out games or hit the big shots will hurt them in the playoffs.

Anyway, I hope the Raps can pull off the upset. I'm heading to Toronto early May and would live to catch some playoff ball.

Wish we could have managed the six seed. We would absolutely manhandle the raptors. That loss to Boston was a killer.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
