Default Who wins in a series, Celtics or Raptors?

I saw this thread at RealGM, with the opinions being pretty split. I'm a raptor's fan and don't really see how this series is close.

Celtics have the best player in the series, a huge coaching advantage, as well as the better role players (Tatum Brown). I would be shocked if this series went past 5 games.

I'm curious what the opinions on this board are.

Considering Lowry and Derozan go missing come playoff time, I'll take the Celtics.

RealGM thought this was a serious question?

Maybe the Raptors can win 2 games, if they play well.

like you said, the C's have superior talent and system... the only way for an opposing team to overcome that really is to get hot from 3pt range. The problem is derozan doesnt shoot 3's well, so youre basically banking on kyle lowry and serge ibaka to go off from 3. Good luck....

Didn't their "deep analytic discussion" result in KG being ranked 3rd all-time?
