Default Raptors are playing with a good plan........losing is the plan

Alright...Most of you guys might disagree with me but actually toronto Raptors are playing with a plan...they are playing for a position...

Everyteam has a style of play and they have weakness and strength. Before the all star break raps where in the 5th seed and that meant they would play Atlanta if playoffs started. As we all know atlanta creates major match up problem and therefore we didnt have a chance beyond first round. ON the other hand we played cleveland and we beat them and gave them a run for there money the other time without BOSh. This proved that we give cleveland a match problem and we are better off playing them than anybody else. So been 8 seed is actually a right seed for us and is very well planned.

we can go beyond first round if we play cleveland...

Losing is definetely NOT the plan, we just happen to be sucking and be in 8th place.

Cleveland has Lebron James, goes far in the playoffs every year, have numerous 10-game or so winning streaks this year...what makes you think we're just gonna beat them? Especially on their court?

This was prior to them getting Antawn Jamison

Also now they have Ilgauskus back on there team

Also i believe Shaq was out for 1 of those games

Lebron can win a whole series on his own. That being said I'd probably want to face

Boston first (last 2 years a low seeded team has taken them to 7 games)

then Cavs

then Orlando (Dont wanna lost to VC again in the first round)

then Atlanta

8th seed is the best..its not like we are going to have home court advantage anyway. So its true, we should position ourselves for the best match up-Cavs

So your saying that Triano is a mastermind and Raps are so good and have been playing terrible on purpose and can turn it on at any time so they can get their preferred matchup in the first round and get to the finals? If only it were true

Triano is a basketball god. He can see into the future of every possible first round game. He saw us lose to boston 4-0, atlanta 4-0, and orlando 4-0. But when he saw our series against Cleveland we still lost 4-0 but one of the games went to double overtime. This immediately caused Triano to throw just the right amount of games so we can get Cleveland in the first. He figured "I gotta make the playoffs but I need to choose the team that we get blown out by the least."

If this is the lack of momentum we have going into the playoffs, which is looking increasingly likely, it won't matter who we face in the first round.

Raps lose in four against LeBron. They'd lose in one if it was possible.

I understand the OP's rationing, but I believe that there's a big difference between the regular season games and the playoffs games. Take one example - Physicality/Intensity. Raps have proven, through out the season, that they give in/buckle down against the more physical teams and simply can not compete well against them.

I simply can't see the Raptors having any kind of chance against the Cavaliers; maybe, big maybe, they can win one game. Anything else would be overachieving.

If they took it to 7, I would be very very happy.
