I don't know how this is going to go, but I would be deliriously happy if we just smashed them 4 games in a row. I mean, obviously, but especially so because of all the tanking crap and Blatche.

Blatche really is dumb to open his mouth at all right now.

Despite being a very athletic team, we hardly run, so the biggest advantage that you'd think a young team would have likely wont happen due to our identity over the course of the year.

The biggest advantage we have is our size, which we need to ensure that we use on a consistent basis. Amir and JV need to be crashing the glass on every offensive possession, and just mutilate BRKs small starting frontcourt, and force Kidds hand into playing bigger to where we can then exploit them on screen roll with our quickness.

Lowry needs to continue his domination of the Nets, and Derozan needs to try and get to the basket as much as possible to once again, force their hand in playing their bigger lineup, and bench more often.

The biggest X factor in the series is KG. If they were indeed resting him only to play him 30 mpg and he's capable of doing so in a productive manner, we're in trouble, but he hasn't shown that he can play more than 20 minutes all year so hopefully that's a moot point.

Blatche has also played well vs the Raptors this year from what I can remember, so we need to find a way to slow him down off of the bench. Hopefully Patterson steps up and can handle him.

I also get flashbacks of Nachbar with Teletovic. If he gets hot in game 1 I'm going to lose my mind.

Raps in 4.

Nah, he's dumb whenever he opens his mouth. I swear all this guy is known for is his desperate attempt to get a Trippe double.

Getting my shift taken asap, this is gonna be HUGE:jack:

MikeToronto 04-17-2014 12:40 AM

Raps in any number of tries = I am very happy...

Finally.. a game thread in the playoffs.. this is a first for me, the last time we were in playoffs I wasn't even on Raps Forum lol

This is going to be one hell of a playoff series, also fun to watch. I'm glad we are playing Brooklyn over Washington, way more exciting and I think the crowd will be into it a lot more. I'm so hyped :dancing:

Agreed, I'm pretty happy we're facing the Nets. Imagine the possibility of the Raps beating KG and Pierce! :jack:

12:30 PM? dammit i hate early games

BUT EXCITED F*** THE NETS AND BLATCH

lankganglia 04-17-2014 01:15 AM

imo all the other ec series r boring, we will get a lot of play hopefully

moremilk 04-17-2014 02:02 AM

this series is all about KG - if he's anywhere close to the real KG, we have no shot
otherwise it's going to be close, as both teams are jump shooting teams, whoever makes the most jumpers will win.

our wildcard will be JV, he had a dominating game against KG, if he can punish them inside, we *may* get the upper hand. If JV struggles, we'll be in deep shit.

The other key is attacking PP in the post. Amir is not a great post player, but he could destroy PP on the boards and should try to get him as busy as possible on D.

Finally, our age could be the difference, if we're smart about it. If we'll try to run all the time, we'll get in trouble - the advantage is best exploited by keeping the starters for longer minutes.

Other things to watch are ross vs JJ, he had real troubles with his size in the regular season, demar vs their long wing players and lowry outplaying deron.

it's a winnable series, but you have to consider them favourites until we see where KG is at.

J-Bo 04-17-2014 02:07 AM

I just hope Brooklyns plan to mini tank to us back fires in there face...But all this trash talking and disrespect is making the series more hyped up and exciting.
