Re: Rockets vs Raptors in a finals series
Rockets would easily win.
If the past is remotely predictive of the finals, the brick brothers would completely languish on the biggest stage as they have been for all the preliminary stages. They haven't proven to be anymore fearsome than regular-season paper tigers, having floundered against every team they've been favored against and getting vanquished by those they've been on the disfavored end against (namely, the Cavaliers); it'd be no different against the Rockets, who'd be both the logical and putative favorites against them.
Let's be honest, though: what team-neutral fan would enjoy seeing this Finals match-up?
No offense intended to either team, but both teams are unwatchable between the Rockets' overly trigger-happy three-point-shooting, James Harden's repulsive ref-baiting, and the Raptors' plodding offense. It just wouldn't forge a spectacular Finals series for us general NBA fans to watch, but there's thankfully slim to no chances of it happening.
