Raptors Return Home…Hopefully Show a Pulse

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a tweet sum up my feelings 100% before. But there it is. That tweet is everything so far that I’ve experienced in only TWO games against the Cavs. After waiting an entire season, and getting so hyped about the trade deadline additions, the Raps…have been just getting dummied. There’s been no defense, they can’t shoot, turnovers galore, DeRozan is -50 so far, and Lowry’s ankle is now an issue. I didn’t expect to beat the greatest player in the world, but I expected some fight against him. That’s the best part about playing LeBron. It’s pushing him too the limit. But instead he’s out there drinking beers and having a laugh this time around. But Wednesday night seemed different. It felt like a franchise altering L. This was the year the Raps went all in, and instead are looking like they will be swept faster and easier than the terrible Indiana Pacers. The roster will be blown up with only DeRozan remaining unless they tie this thing up at home like last season. Do I expect that? No. This team is lacking one big thing that all teams need in the playoffs which is the edge. Now usually I hate when reporters use that term or narrative. But in this case it’s true. Last season Biyombo brought that edge. The guy wasn’t afraid of anyone on the Cavs. It made a difference, with the team, with the crowd, even with the Cavs. Hopefully I’m wrong and this isn’t the last time we see Lowry, Ibaka, and Casey at the ACC. But since there are literally ZERO highlights from the first two games, lets bask in playoff Raps Biyombo.

PS- Love how in any absurd or ridiculous situation that occurs on this planet now. The internet finds a Simpsons clip that fits perfectly with it. These young kids today will never appreciate or understand how funny and ahead of the time that show was.

I’m Done With Game 1’s

 

I don’t know what it is with this team and game 1’s. Every single series they always start down a game. I can’t understand why they are never ready to play. Missing open shots, turning the ball over a ton, not getting to the line enough. It’s just so frustrating. I pray Wednesday we see a different team. We have too. Otherwise this is a sweep like the Wizards in 2015.
