Lowry is probably the best PG in the East after the Gay trade and AS break. Against Williams, he might just look like the best in the league.

Time for KG to announce his retirement after this series?

Tired of listening about how Nets will win in 6. Also I hope Raptors bigs won't be afraid to throw a few elbows when KG talks and plays cheap. I know Hansbrough and him are bound to pick up technicals.

That's actually one thing I fear. Our defence has been very subpar over the past bit, especially towards the end of the year. Teams like Milwaukee and Philly were able to post 100 points against us, which is horrifying considering their records.

We really need to get back to defense first or the Nets might upset us.

When have the raptors ever gotten any credit? they're a;lways going to be a sleeper because the US doesnt pay much attention to them. That'll change after this series. SO ofc experts will say the nets, but that's simply because they're biased and havent seen it all. Thanks

As a Net fan, I'm obligated to say Nets in six.

Deron, KG and AK have to step up in order for that to happen.

I'm aware that most experts are picking Nets in 6 games. I'll rephrase that.

If the Raptors aren't able to regain the defensive prowess that they showed earlier in the season, then the Nets will upset them and rather quickly, based on my expectation, as I think Raptors in 7.

I'm aware you think differently, but it's expected as we are fans of teams that are against each other :p

I'm just saying the NBA is biased and are only focusing on the nets, so regardless of majority of people say the nets, doesnt mean it's a fact, it's simply reinforcing what's consistently mentioned.

Lets not kid ourselves guys. The most logical outcome is Nets in 6. The Nets have been the hottest team since the All-Star break and they have vets and young talent who know how to get the job done.

torocan
04-19-2014, 08:02 AM
I don't even like the Nets and I figure the Nets in 6 or 7.

However, I do think the Raptors CAN win this series. I just think the Nets experience in the play offs on an individual level is hard to discount. KG and PP both have championship pedigree. While stuff like that is hard to quantify, it's those last 5 minutes of a close game where stuff like knowing exactly how far they can push the rules really pays off.

Now, if the Raptors can dictate the pace and push out significant leads going into the 4th quarter they have a good shot at taking any game. I just don't trust them in down to the wire clutch minutes.

The raptors are a good enough team in terms of talent and coaching to beat the Nets, I just worry they're a little green to get too far against the wily Veterans like KG, PP, and Co.

He won't go after Lowry, he might be the smallest guy but Lowry is tough and tested. KG will go after sophomores because we don't have any rookies. Those are the guys KG targets first.

I remember him going after Jose one year, Jose didn't back down. KG didn't do all that non sense to him again. The talking **** part, he does that to everybody though.

That's very debateable. Let's not pretend Toronto hasn't been equally as good during that time. They actually had a better record then Brooklyn after the break.

Chicago 21-9
Charlotte 20-9

The Raptors are as good/marginally better than the Nets. However, that only takes you so far in the play offs.

The Raptors are NOT significantly better. I expect a close series no matter who wins. However, the Raptors have shown much of the season that they struggle with close games against good teams. And the ability to close in close games is absolutely critical in the play offs.

This is why Experience is going to be such a big factor. If the Raptors were playing Atlanta this wouldn't even be debatable. Against the Nets, experience will come into play because the Rosters are fairly evenly matched in terms of talent.

Now, if this was the Raptors second year in the play offs with this group, I'd have to take the Raptors. Unfortunately, this is their FIRST year and that means something.

I feel like not having Ross, and his three point shooting/spacing abilities, probably is not ideal for Toronto. Something to take into consideration. He got in foul trouble in a hurry and the offense just has not gotten it going.

Really? Because AK47 is like an advanced stats guy. Maybe not a raw box score. But the dude grades out crazy well in every metric.

After Brook Lopez, AK47 is my favorite player on the Nets. He's crazy great to watch because he always makes the right play.

Wut? THis is a guy who was a fantasy basketball wet dream in his prime and has long been a guy whose game has been supported strongly by advanced stats. Both stats worlds have a lot of reason to acknowledge how good he is (mostly was). He is 33 now and does play under 20 minutes a game, though. That's probably the real reason he doesn't get this attention you think he deserves more of.
