    Raptors Should Try To Lose

    Raps should try to drop this game. Boston is down early. If Boston loses and Raps let Cavs win, then they'd get Boston in the second round. I would laugh if Boston loses, Toronto beats Cleveland, and then basically sets up a second round matchup with the Cavs.

    Cavs full on dump mode tonight.
    Nets fielding a D3 team. Why??

    Does anyone think Ty Lue is a championship caliber coach? Doc gets way too much love as well. His title team was freakin deep and stacked. They should have won 2.

    If I were Lue, I'd rest the big 3 but keep them available incase Boston is in a situation where they could lose. I still don't get why Raps are trying to win. Big difference between facing Celtics and Cavs. Wouldn't surprise me if Casey rests his guys in the second half, but even then, doubt Cavs second unit could bring them back.

    Maybe Toronto going with the "we'll have to beat them anyway" mentality

    with how they've been this season maybe it's better to get them early because it might take them some time to get their act together

    Could be the worst win ever for the Raptors.

    Soon as I saw Bron out I took Raps. Not that it probably matter these last two weeks though.

    In theory, if Toronto beats Cavs in the semi-s - they are riding a wave into the conference finals against maybe, Boston. If they would have faced Boston in the semi-s they would still have a mountain to climb in the conference finals.

    I didn't watch the Bucks/Celtics game but saw the Bucks were leading for a long time and then what happened?

    They were resting everyone. Hell Payton got 32 minutes and he was signed a week ago.

    You were right but Boston wasn't losing to Milwaukee's backups at home tonight.
