The impact of Toronto's second quarter surge was not lost on their head coach Dwane Casey. But they'll need a whole lot of luck to make it happen. We've just got to keep going. Bet on the Toronto Raptors -4 over the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association on Wednesday.
Boston also finished the game with 17 turnovers; 14 came in the first half where they only made 13 baskets. "If I come into your building for Game 1, it'll be very challenging".
The TorontoRaptors must know the playoffs are around the corner, as they're starting to cool off big time and aren't playing with the same energy that put them in the No. 1 spot in the East.
Of course, the Cavaliers that beat the first-place Raptors 112-106 on Tuesday night in Cleveland aren't the same Cavs that stumbled through December and January.
The Celtics are red-hot. One of the main reasons why the Raptors failed to push Cleveland was because they missed shots throughout the game and were especially bad on the 3 pointers.
Boston's top scorer is guard Kyrie Irving. The Raptors only managed 43 points at halftime.
If Jose Calderon is going to outplay Toronto All-Star Kyle Lowry, the Raptors have no shot against the Cavaliers in the playoffs. IN ended a five-game winning streak and fell 1 1/2 games behind the 76ers for fourth in the East despite Victor Oladipo's 25 points. Brad Stevens deployed it in the fourth and Casey didn't have an answer, not for a lack of effort in searching for one. That's not generally a recipe for success.
Trade Tensions Stoke Worries of Anti-US Backlash in China
The tariffs may never even be imposed if the two sides eventually agree on a deal to open further China to United States imports. Chinese tariffs on USA -made planes are not certain, and the proposal only covers planes within a certain weight range.
"Who anticipated that you would institute fundamental changes on both the offensive and defensive ends and that it would go as seamlessly as it has for the Raptors". We held a great team under 80 points.
The Boston Celtics blew a great opportunity to control their own destiny for the number one seed last night. That's what would make a playoff series between these two teams, these two coaches, so fascinating. My plan is to play one game at a time and see how I feel after that game.
Tuesday's grudge match with Cleveland should be just as interesting.
Anthony Tolliver scored 25 points for the Pistons and went 7 of 8 from 3-point range.
The Cavaliers have now won nine of their last ten games and look to be heading into the playoffs on a hot streak. James finished with 35 points and 17 rebounds in Cleveland's 132-129 win. It will be the second meeting between the teams in five days. Meanwhile, the Cavs were without five injured rotation players. The teams' recent play has brought the Celtics to within two games of the Raptors for the Eastern Conference lead.
The Cavaliers still aren't at full strength. Kyle Korver played for the first time since March 19. In other words, this game should be a much better indicator of how these two teams stack up. He's that good. LeBron could take any team in the East to seven games with his left hand in a plaster cast.
If the Raptors want to be taken seriously as contenders, they're going to have to earn it once the postseason begins, because historically speaking, they don't exactly deserve the benefit of the doubt.
