Default 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.

What is this post even?

"Brick brothers" have owned Milwaukee's soul. Didn't one just score 52 against them?

Toronto doesn't have a "plodding" offense, it's actually new and exciting, from the games I've watched them. Plodding is a word to describe Clevelands, if they didn't have the stars (but you just said offense).

Holy shit imagine if that series went to a 7th game. The amount of bricks being tossed up and turnovers committed would shatter records.

The final score would probably be 45-42

I doubt that a guy who just scored 52 points the other day would struggle to score again James Haren.
