    Stop. Lets take a look at the stats.

    Raptors shot 41.2% from behind the arc. Lakers shot 25% from behind the arc. Raptors shot 88.5% from behind the line. Lakers shot 72.7% from behind the line. OF COURSE THE RAPTORS WON, I DON'T THINK YOU CAN POSSIBLY LOSE IF YOU OUTSHOOT YOUR OPPONENT BY THAT MUCH. If they both shot 36% from three, the score would've been 104-101 LAKERS WIN.

    BESIDES THIS IS A MEANINGLESS GAME FROM THE LAKERS. If they were trying to win they probably wouldn't have ran an 11 MAN ROTATION and played KYLE KUZMA 28 minutes.

    Lakers were going 75%, Raptors were going 95%. Tryharding is a skill, and it's great the Raptors play so hard, but in a PLAYOFFS situation the other team will play that hard TOO.


    We all know that the Raptors defense is amazing. They're 2nd best in the league. But like I've been saying, they struggle to score the ball. This game was no different: they shot 42% from inside the arc and despite shooting so well from beyond, they only scored 107 points.

    The Raptors are 18th in halfcourt offense. In a playoffs situation when the game slows down, they'll struggle to score. Siakam as great as he is, is not efficient as an iso/get a bucket guy. Lowry is on or off, but unless the Raptors are hitting every three they take, they will struggle to score against elite defensive teams.

    The Raptors are 13-15 vs teams with winning records. I do think they can compete against any team in the league, but let's calm down a bit.
