    I've watched that shot now a couple dozen times and I'm still not entirely sure how it went in.
    COMING SOON...

    Well for starters, the shot was perfectly in line with the hoop...

    Yeah bouncing forward off the front rim is pretty rare

    Congrats for their first trip to the finals. Kawhi is a bad man.

    What a game. I was losing faith there down 15 in the 3rd. 2-0 against the Warriors this year, once without Curry though. Hopefully it is a series.

    Normally a first time team shouldn't be able to compete with a team like the Warriors, but Kawhi was coached by Popavich and brought up in the Spurs culture. So I won't count the Raptors out.

    To be honest I don't know how Pop isn't in the HOF right now. He is such a good coach it is not even funny. Home court to Toronto so you never know but Milwaukee was missing 3's and that is exactly what the Warriors won't do.

    Hopefully no Durant. I also heard that Boogie Cousins was possible too which sucks.

    How has Fred VanVleet been looking so far?

    He was pretty unplayable due to his size vs Philly. Against Milwaukee, before his baby he was shooting like 12% from 3. After baby so games 4-6 he was 14/17 from 3. So keep popping out them kids Freddie!!

    Re: Congrats to the Raptors

    Big win for the Raptors last night but I think that is the last game the Warriors play short handed. Sounds like KD and Thompson are going to be back sooner rather than later.

    Raptors up 3-1. This is huge for Canada basketball. There used to be a lot of unused basketball hoops in my neighborhood but as I drive around now I see tons of kids playing

    I'd love the Raptors if their identity wasnt so tied to Drake. That guys a total dork and insufferable.

    He is but lots of players love his music so that helps.

    In the past 2 playoffs he has:

    forced a team to take a 5 sec violation for yelling at him instead of playing.
    forced the Bucks to worry about him instead of the Raptors.

    As much as he is a tool, he is a helpful tool.

    They better win. The Leafs never will.

    Re: Congrats to the Raptors

    It says a lot about the popularity of basketball that the Raptors are now a more valuable franchise than the Leafs.

    Sounds like KD is playing. Make him play D and we will see if he can move around out there because I'm sure he can sit on a spot and shoot 3's all night on O.
