Default Round 1: Magic vs Raptors

Magic fans, how concerned are you that Bosh has done whatever he wanted during the season to your team? Do th Raps scare you at all?

I think Orlando is the better team but the matchup problems make me predict it will take 7 games to beat Toronto.

Raps could take it IF they could play the way they were playing before the big skid at the end of the season. Orlando won the season series 2-1 but Bosh missed one of the games that Orland won, and he's destroyed them every game.

Also Bargnani, Kapono, and Delfino have to step up for the Raps to stand a chance.

Raptors learned some valuable lessons last year in the playoffs, if they apply them they can win.

Magic are pretty green, and may very well lose.

Gonna be interesting how Orlando plays Bosh. Would be surprised seeing him in single converage against Howard or Lewis.

Obviously Toronto's gonna double Howard (or any other player that posts up, no matter who ) so Hedo and Lewis are gonna have some great looks.

If Howard is on Bosh, who gets to cover the basketball monster that is Rasho Nesterovic?

No point in covering Rasho. It's as good as 2 pts when he gets the ball.

Everyone can get primed for this series by sporting an Air Rasho avatar and getting the official desktop wallpaper:



Link to 1280x1028 version: Updated Link to Red-on-White


Prediction of series averages (Magic win in 6):

Dwight - 27/15
Bosh - 33/9
Rasho - 19/9

Should be great for anyone that likes frontcourt action.

Raptors are not gonna beat the Magic. Honestly, they are terrible. PG defense is terrible, AP is an average SG, Jamario Moon is basically useless, Bosh is great but I'm not sure if he is a playoff performer since he got shut down and embarassed the whole series last year and Rasho cannot contain Dwight. I watch them a lot and they'll be lucky to still be playing in game 6. I say Magic in 5.

If Toronto loses to a team with Nelson as the point guard, they should disband.
