                          lol raptors lost game 5, the first 4 were not a split it was 3-1 Raptors lead. if all had gone will with raptors winning home court and warriors winning in there, the series would have been 3-2 with raptors lead. So I guess you're kinda right.

                                          The Raptors basically swept the Bucks in 4 games after the first two practice games. 👍👍👍👍

                                                Easy peasy for the NBA.
                                                The Celtics had done it last year, this year the NBA decided to have all the fouls called against the Celtics, hacking, grabbing and hitting strategy of Celtics dismissed by the NBA.

                                                        Raptors are a great team but are going to lose 4-2 to the warriors because there is no such thing as happiness in the NBA

                                                                    *Thompson is a prolific shooter but he doesn't move without the ball as much as Curry so Leonard can stop a guy just as good just expounding less energy.
                                                                    *Iguodala is a very athletic guy who facilitates and gets easy dunks so the 6'10 Siakam will use his length to contest dunks and block the passing vision of the 6'6 guard.
                                                                    *Green is a big guy but Lowry is a bulldog as a small guard. He's strong enough to give him a little resistance when Green is trying to post up and facilitate. He will either get a steal or get Draymond in foul trouble.
                                                                    *Bogut and Gasol will fight over rebounds.

                                                                            It does seem like VanVleet play a critical role in the defensive as well as he is very smart about switching. VanVleet should have been a factor in the 76'ers series, but for some reason, he was literally unplayable with horrible shooting and was getting out rebounded and blocked. But since Game 4 in the Bucks series, VanVleet woke up and hit incredible three's in three straight games. His help defense and position defense against even Giannis is excellent. This Raptor's team is full of smart defenders with focus on positioning than athleticism to try to block or steal. Kyle, Gasol, Green, VanVleet and Kawhi are all above average defenders in this league. The real challenge is positioning defense is less effective against shooting teams like Warriors and Rockets. Defenders must be able to chase and contest shots to make shooters feel a bit uncomfortable. So we will see how Game 1 and 2 go. Hopefully Raptors can win 1 or even 2 at home before heading to Golden State.
