Raptors should try for the 6 seed

I'm a Raptors fan and I have been since '95, and I can guarntee one thing -- they CANNOT beat the Cavaliers in a 7 game series. It doesn't matter who has home court advantage, the Raps will be lucky if they push the series to 5 games. The Cavs front court is too big, too strong, too physical for the Raps, who are soft inside. Big Z, Wallace, and Varejao will have a field day getting put back after put back. Oh yeah, they also have this guy named LeBron James, you might have heard of him.

With Chris Bosh in the lineup, they can beat the Magic (never said they will, said they can). Dwight Howard is a very over rated defender, and Bosh always goes off for 35+ when the 2 go head to head. And yes, Howard does defend Bosh when they're on the floor. The Magic have virtually no depth whatsoever, while the Raptors are too deep for their own good. The PG matchup is a no brainer, because the Raptors have 2 guys better than Orlando's starter.

Oh yeah, they'd avoid the Celtics in the 2nd round.

P.S. Completly unrelated, but the Buckeyes got Terrelle Pryor today, time to celebrate

True enough. At least the Magic won't tear us apart by 20 rebounds every game like Cleveland does game in and game out. Raptors outrebounded by 15 again tonight 50-35. Lost by 7. It's a simple equation......too bad we can't figure it out.

Agreed, however it will be (IMO) a guanteed 1st round exsit if they face Cleveland. If they play Orlando at least the players know they can beat them, since they've done it before.

I think Toronto needs to play as well as they can down the stretch. They need to get some team chemistry heading into the playoffs and not think about who they'll be playing in the 1st round. At this point they will be eliminated in round 1 against any team they play unless they get their act together.
