Be serious, we don't have real chance in best of 7 series against Indiana, 2 games if we get lucky.

I am serious. The Raptors don't lay down when they get behind. They keep fighting and if you let your foot off the gas they will get you. Toronto just matches up well with Indy. PG was off tonight for a reason.

I'd rather face the Pacers than the Heat in the playoffs. Our style just matches with them. I can see it going 6-7 games going either way.

I've really been impressed with the job our defense has done on Paul George.

I want Toronto in the playoffs. good enough that the Pacers have to take them seriously, but not good enough to actually win the series. I think Pacers would take it in 5 (maybe 6), which is better than coasting past some scrub team

the way the whistle went inside, you have to believe JV and Amir were not given the benefit of the doubt. Hibbert and West were allowed to be way more physical in this game. Our interior D is what makes our team so good, it allows us to get stops and push the ball. When we get into a half court battle we tend to rely on DeRozan too much. Tonight he had it going but if he didn't we would have been blown out.

Tough game but just like the Miami game, I was impressed with our ability to play through the whistle not going our way more often than not. It's almost as if we play harder when calls don't go our way. That's the very definition of a hungry team.

Raptors managed to shut down PG again. Pacers shut down Raps' bigs in response this time and it worked.
