Default [Q] Does Celtics win make Raptors look even worse?

Where my baby dinos fam at?

Are you pissed looking at your team's softness relative to the gritty and fearless Celtics & Pacers?

It's one game, Lebron will drop 50 next game and Celtics will be running scared.

Yes, clearly.

Now we know the fluke wasn't the Pacers giving the Cavs all they could handle.

The Cavs have a lot of flaws on this team...mainly the fact that their defense is abysmal.

The fact that the Raptors got destroyed like they did just shows how much a fraudulent team they really are / were.

Just look at the 8 non Raptors games the Cavs have played in the playoffs.

No. The Raptors always looked soft. Winning 59 games doesn't make you tough outright.

No biggie, I'm good as long as the C's play hard. The team has already exceeded my expectations for this season, they literally have nothing to lose

We are talking about a team led a guy who has been a multi millionaire since he was a teenager but suffers from severe depression, an all star? PG who has been blocked by a comedian who makes his living off being a midget, soft ass Drake, and a coach who openly deepthroats LeBricks, Leballs every chance he gets to in every interview.

yea but there's one factor to consider that makes up for some of it. The Cavs actually had less open 3 attempts vs the Raptors than the Pacers(a friend told me this so I dont have any evidence but seemed decently likely from watching both series). There's not much you can do when Korver, Jr, Green go a combined 31/54 from 3 in 4 games. Vs Indiana Cavs shot 32% from 3 and they went 4/26 today and that wasnt all defense. Sometimes it just comes down to shooting

But I gotta give Raps fans for being real though... I hope they get a real coach and actual superstars who are not mental midgets soon

Possibly, but no one loses more than IT after this Celtics win. Any chance of him securing a semi-decent contract is basically gone now.

I think the funny thing is the Celtics match up worse with the Raptors. We've been lucky to avoid them in the playoffs recently. Idc how much they fold in the playoffs.

Yes IMO.
The Raps were never able to adjust when a team figures out how to play them.
They had a good system and were able to win lots of RS games, but the real-time strategy and tactics needed to win important games was non-existent.
Casey is a great coach in terms of getting his guys prepared to play, but he doesn't have (and never has had) the ability to make effective adjustments on the fly when things aren't working and it's been his biggest flaw for most of his time with the Raps.
