The Eastern Conference Finals TNT wants is Boston/Philadelphia, two major East Coast media markets and historical franchises.

Milwaukee is a small media market, and Toronto is in Canada; therefore if one or both are in the East finals TNT loses advertising revenue.

Baseball fans remember how CBS lost a ton of advertising revenue when Toronto was in the 1992 and 1993 World Series.

are you retarded?

People are far more interested in Embiid, Simmons and social media king Butler than Kawhi and the Raptors..

He shot like 32% against Gasol this year and pretty much 40% for his career and has been dominated. Don't expect Gasol to dominate him statistically at this point but Embiid will have to work for his points. He's not gonna bully him, Gasol has great defensive IQ and he ain't gonna go for Joel's pump fakes at the 3pt line, he can jack as many of those as he wants

If the Sixers' starting lineup actually performs as hyped - as championship contenders - they can beat the Raptors. But even though they added Butler and Harris, the Sixers only finished fourth in the East. Embiid remains limited due to injuries, and Ben Simmons is not quite there yet. Butler is super-clutch, but he has to defer to Embiid. This adds up to a lot of individual talent that has yet to blend seamlessly into a championship caliber team.

Because Leonard provides leadership, stability, and production on both sides of the floor, the Raptors will win. Lowry remains choke-prone, but he was solid in the first round against the Magic. Siakam has continued to improve from a smashing regular season, and has already supplanted Lowry as the team's second best player. Marc Gasol may no longer be in his Defensive Player of the Year prime, but he is capable of slowing down Embiid.

The 76er's lineup of Simmons, Embiid, Butler, Redick and Harris have only played 14 games together. Ever.

Their record with all of them in the lineup is 11-3.
