    First NBA team in over 40 years to have at least 5 players average 15 points or more per game. Teams win championships, not individual players.

    Raps have more experienced champions on roster than any other current team.

    Yep, and Shady, today is the first time Raps have ever gone up 3-0 in a playoff series. Three players over 20, 8 players double digits, sharing the rock, what a team! Respecting the moment, not looking ahead, lots of pride in team defense.

    I got them at +350 to win east, and +1200 and more at +650 to win finals.

    What's not to like about them?

    Only thing that concerns me is likely series with Boston may get physical, injuries, etc.

    Going for the sweep over the Nets tomorrow Roscoe. In game 3 of this series, Raptors had 3 players over 20 points, and 6 players over 10 points. I love the way that if, on any given day one player's shooting isn't hot, they still contribute with solid defense and playmaking.

    Boston sweeps Philly, let's see if Toronto sweeps Brooklyn.

    A Celtics vs Raptors series with both teams coming off an opening round sweep would like prove to be very entertaining.

    Raptors -175 to win series, and -130 to win game one.

    Lowry (sprained ankle) practiced late week, not sure yet whether he'll play in today's 1 o'clock EST opener.

    I don't think so Jibby, I think Raptors even it up tonight, that buzzer beater sparked their swagger.
