Bring on the Celtics!
The Raptors completed the first sweep in franchise history in record-breaking fashion. They set an NBA record — regular season or playoffs — with 100(!!) bench points. Toronto also set a franchise playoff record with 150 points. Lost in those gaudy numbers, they tied the franchise playoff record set in Game 1 with 22 three-pointers.
Brooklyn was out-matched before the re-start began. With an entire starting lineup worth of players missing (Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Spencer Dinwiddie, Taurean Prince, DeAndre Jordan), the Nets would have been lucky to get a win. They out-scored Toronto in only four of 16 quarters, and even that seemed higher than expected.
Lurking in the back of everyone’s minds is the prognosis of Kyle Lowry’s MRI. With prayers up that he’ll be ready for Boston, the boys had a good time breaking down Toronto’s Game 4 victory. Enjoy the latest episode of That’s A Rap before stressing over Lowry’s injury status and the impending war against the Celtics!
