Superior in the sense that they have better and more proven players and are a better team. Like i have been saying since the regular season i don't think the Raptors
have the ability, talent, experience, 'clutch-ness' (so all of the above to your list) to beat the nets. I know it's the unpopular opinion (bring on the thumbs downs!) but it's one that i feel pretty strongly about. I would be shocked if the Raptors
ended up taking this series to 7 games never mind winning it.
Back to the topic at hand, Casey has done a great job. With all that talk about a culture change, i think he's actually done a lot to make it happen. They have done a 180 from their soft, no rebounding, no defense ways and i think a lot of that is because of Casey.
