Raptor Game Days
Raptor Game days kick-off with their scrimmages today against the small ball Houston Rockets. They will be playing three scrimmages in total. The Raptors will also play eight regular season games, prior to the start of the NBA Playoffs.
RAPTOR GAME DAYS: MY PREDICTIONS
The Toronto Raptors are once again being over looked by the American media. The American media consensus is that the Raptors will be a second round exit or at best losing in the conference finals. I believe the Raptors will be once again shocking the NBA world. They are geared to contend with the best and in my opinion are built to win an NBA Championship this year. The Raptors have been the second best team defensively throughout this season. That is with many injuries throughout key players on their roster.
The Raptors are rested and will be the toughest defensive team in the NBA and I have always preached “defense wins championships.” The NBA has shifted to an even more offensive league and with that being said the Raptors are also one of the best offensive teams, with having so many three point threats and players that can make plays for others.
MY 8 GAME REGULAR SEASON PREDICTIONS:
GAME 1: RAPTORS VS. LAKERS – RAPTORS WIN 113-108
GAME 2: RAPTORS VS. HEAT – RAPTORS WIN 104-99
GAME 3: RAPTORS VS. MAGIC (PROBABLE FIRST ROUND PLAYOFF MATCHUP) – RAPTORS WIN 119- 109
GAME 4: RAPTORS VS. CELTICS – RAPTORS WIN 103-94
GAME 5: RAPTORS VS. GRIZZLIES – RAPTORS WIN 114-101
GAME 6: RAPTORS VS. BUCKS – RAPTORS LOSE 99-110
GAME 7: RAPTORS VS. SIXERS – RAPTORS WIN 111-104
GAME 8: RAPTORS VS. NUGGETS – RAPTORS LOSE 109-115
The Raptors will finish 6-2 and will stay in second place in the Eastern Conference entering the NBA Playoffs.
No Trouble in the Bubble
The NBA seems to have a great system for player safety in the NBA Bubble in Orlando. Players have now locked in on the reason they are their and this will make for one of the most exciting NBA playoffs of all time.
The fight for the eight spot in the Western conference has peaked my interest as I would love to see Portland or New Orleans overtake Memphis for the eight spot. The first round matchup against the Lakers would be LeBron James’ toughest opponent of his career in the first round.
Please share your opinions on how the Raptors success in the eight regular season games and the playoffs!
