Raptors Win 7-Game Series

Heading into last night's game seven at the ACC, I was asked for my prediction. With apologies to Forrest Gump, I ended up comparing the Raptors to a box of chocolates. I could see us winning big, but I could also see us losing big.

Despite our two all-stars still struggling to make buckets, we were up by 14 to start the fourth quarter. A 14-point lead never felt so fragile. With just under three minutes to play, that lead was down to 3.

We held on, as you know, to advance to the second round for only the second time in franchise history. We'll face the Heat and I'm thinking we'll have to shoot better than 38.2% if we're going to have a chance at advancing.

Thank you Cory Joseph, thank you Norman Powell, thank you Patrick Patterson, and thank you DeMarre Carroll. Bring on the Heat!

This is just the beginning. I see a Toronto-Cleveland eastern conference final in our near future.

Gee I hope Bob Seger sings the national anthem for one of the games. That would be perfect..... for Cheryl anyway.

Just loved the interview with Kyle Lowry after the game - he said that he was happy to finally 'get the monkey out of the room'.
Hopefully against the Heat he'll feel good about getting the elephant off his back.
