Raptors are a more consistent group, and the Wizards matchup this year will be very different then a couple years back
    But it's the Raptors.

    Not a big piece for them, but Jodie Meeks just got suspended 25 games for violating the anti-drug program. He will not be able to join the Wizards for the playoffs.

    One less 3 point shooter to worry about. He hurt the Raptors earlier in the year.

    Raptors will make short work of the wizards even if playoff Lowry shows up.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    The Wizards are a tough matchup for the Raptors because they have someone who can guard Derozan (Otto Porter). His length (and ability not to bite on a pump fake) gives DD problems. It will be a HUGE bonus for the Raptors if his calf strain keeps him out of this series. On top of being their best defender, he's their best outside shooter, their second best rebounder and their 3rd highest scorer this season.

    Wow Jamie you sure have more confidence then I do! I mean Iím the biggest fan around but like others have said these are the raptors and nothing ever goes smoothly for us. I canít believe th number of 4/5 series comments in here. I really reallly hope this is what happens so we can go all out on lebron. The one the I know about sports in general is that certain teams and certain players always seem to have your number. Miami, Wizards, lebron, beal, Garnett, pierce, joe Johnson are all examples of that.

    But I will be optimistic and positive that what we accomplished this year and with are bench will propel us. We need some voices in that room to have us ready to go from the first whistle. We have no time for breaks or ď night offĒ like Lowry etc. Itís all in, all heart and sweat till you canít sweat no more is how they need to play. They do that we even beat lebron. **** I wish I had 5 minutes in a Locker room with these guys. Iíd be saying some unconventional **** that would have them balling.

    Sure things arenít going to ever be smooth for us in the post season but thatís what happens when you donít have a legit super star that can put this team on his back and carry them..

    With that said this isnít the same inexperienced raptors team from 4-5 seasons ago. The starters all have experience and can lead the younger guys who arenít experienced. Also those young players are hungry and are considered a strength so Iím not to worried .

    However, we do have the ****** lucky of facing Lebron in the 2nd round so itís inevitable that itís another 2nd round exit for the Raps this year, I just hope they push it to 7 games and make it a respectable series.

    I don't get where the confidence is coming from as well. I mean they are already saying they have to treat game 1 like it's game 7. You usually say things like that when you know there is a mental hurdle.

    yea. I understand expecting to win, cuz I do, but for us to win easily? We've never had an easy playoff series. They always play down to competition

    Yup. I expect to win but I'm not ruling anything out.
