    Nah, last night Raps had the crowd and could barely pull it off with Giannis struggling. Not to say we can't win the series and getting that win was very important, but blowing Game 1 is really a killer because they need that road victory.

    How can the Warriors lose if KD is healthy?

    The Blazers should have used Myers Leonard earlier on in the series. I really hate seeing Lillard fail but they were really just outclassed in crunch time every single game. Obviously losing Nurkic was a massive blow. Hopefully they make another run at it with most of this core intact next season.

    they can't. I don't think they beat the Bucks without him though if the Bucks make it that far. I don't think the Raptors have the fire power either way against the Warriors.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say they couldn't beat the Bucks without him. But that would be the only chance.

    And yes I have to agree that the Raps just don't have the depth to beat them either way.

    They can easily lose if they're careless and feel they can coast through a game and try to steal it late but come up short. That's one game, though. The issue is attempting to see that happen four times in seven games.

    The Warriors are more fun without Durant. They will win with or without him, in 5 games or less. The Eastern Finals are irrelevant. We are witnessing all time greatness and it is delightful. I hope Steph gets MVP this time.

    Raps had this sort of lead Game 1. Far from over.

    What a beautiful complete game by the Raptors. Lowry was a beast and I love that Powell is sticking it the Bucks for drafting him and then trading him to TO. Chip on his shoulder! Kawhi was just legendary as usual.

    Raptors in 7 baby.

    Golden State gets to rest while Toronto and Milwaukee battle in the East Finals. By the time the Raptors or Bucks make it to the Finals, they are going to be broken from all this back-and-forth action. I honestly think either of the teams, when fully healthy and rested, could beat Golden State in a 7 game series. They have the MVP, they have the defense and they, especially Milwaukee, have the depth. As long as they're rested, this could be one of the better finals of the past 4-5 years.

    i was slightly embarrassed when our old dude superfan oddly got up in lowry's face last series. don't fucking step to the players like that. i don't know how or why drake gets away with some of the shit he's done. well, i mean, i know why, but still. maybe i'm mistaken, but i can't think of any other single fan, famous or not, that does this kind of nonsense. he doesn't fucking belong in huddles or rubbing on the coach. it's beyond cringey.

    He's the global brand ambassador for the Raptors. Can go to the dressing room after games like it's nothing. OVO sponsors their practice facility. It's not out of nowhere.

    Yep there’s a lot of Drake hate coming from teams who just lost to the Raptors.

    He touched the Raptors coach, who had no problem with it, right? Not the Bucks coach. This is like a tamer version of when Matthew McConaughey gets to be on the court and act like a coach for Texas basketball or football. If the team wants him there and has a working relationship with him to the point where he has his own locker and the practice facility is named for him, what's really the problem?

    And you guys may say it's cringey when McConaughey does it too, or that it's different in college, but seriously who cares. It's sports. It's fun when celebrities are into it. It was fun when Spike Lee and Reggie were jawing at each other and I get that Giannis is a modern NBA beta boy instead of a gritty 90s player like Reggie who would have just stuck a 3 pointer and shut Drake up, but the fact is that this is part of what makes the NBA so entertaining. Love Drake or hate him, that's the fun of it, but to be upset by it and think he shouldn't be allowed to do what he's doing is where you're the one who sounds like a tool.

    Being worried so much about Drake to the point of going out of his way to go ahead and comment on the issue tells me that the lights are getting a little too bright for the Bucks.

    Team owners arent allowed to cross certain lines during games. Pretty sure Drake can follow the same rules. This is nothing new. Its the same antics Spike Lee and Jack Nicholson and plenty of other celebs have done over the years. I'd do the same thing if I was Drake. Still, he needs to stay in his lane. Being a brand ambassador isnt being on the team.

    This isnt a team with a bunch of championships. If I were the Raptors I would ask Drake to STFU and let the team make a title run without a cartoony distraction. They can brag and act immature next year if they win a title.

    We must've ran out of things to discuss if we're really directing this much conversation to Drake harmlessly interacting with a team that seems to enjoy it. I see this as another wonderful image builder for the NBA and the youth that has become fans of the game. People, especially younger, love seeing their favorite celebrity at the games.

    Point is, they don't have a lot of experience (some but still lacking across the board) and taking the time to give this the time of day rather than blowing it off completely comes across negatively to me.

    That was a bad time to lay an egg with securing rebounds for the Bucks. That possession where Leonard secured the offensive rebound off his own three was a backbreaker. Their offense got stuck in the mud wasn't in transition. Not sure how much credit needs to be given to Toronto's D but a fair amount should be given to them for that.

    If the Raps can keep the Bucks transition opportunities that's key. It's not even like we don't get people back. They're just so good at it with Giannis' length.

    This has now officially become the Raps best ever season (previously lost in 6 to the Cavs).

    Feeling confident coming back to Toronto. But outside of Game 2 and 4 every game has been close so things can still end up either way.

    This game was over as soon as Aaron Rodgers couldn’t finish his beer on the Jumbotron. Bad mojo like you read about

    Could not be more impressed by Drake tonight. Outstanding composure and a huge win for not only toronto but all teenage Instagram as well.

    Due to making two All-NBA teams in a row, Giannis is eligible for a 5-year, $247M extension from the Bucks next summer. Largest contract in NBA history. That would be a $49.4 million per year average, and in the last year he would be making over $56 million. Major.

    The best part of the Aaron Rodger's video is the fact that the girl on his left is the daughter of Buck's Owner Wes Edens, and the fact she is trolling Drake with the Pusha T tee on. Classic.

    Another reason the NBA is growing in popularity. This shit would never happen in the MLB or NFL. I love all the interactions and acceptance of people outside of the NBA who are culturally significant.

    I’m not getting cocky at all. I’ll be in the crowd and we can be great (ignore the beginning of the second half when half the seats are empty) so I’m hoping that we can push the boys through the finish line. I also hope the Raps aren’t getting cocky. I’m expecting a big game from Giannis so hopefully we don’t also let one of the support go off on us. I wouldn’t be surprised with a Raps blowout or a Bucks blowout both teams have shown this series the ability to shrink and also to be lights out.

    Best of luck.
