yes, even winning one will almost guarantee it, provided we win tomorrow. If we win both, we'll lock it by next Tuesday, even if we lose to both Denver and Cleveland.
But I'm not feeling too comfortable about the 2nd game, after playing the cavs in what should be a high-energy game. We'll be at home, and Boston is on a b2b too, but I like our chances on Saturday more. We'll be rested and Boston will be back from the west trip which tends to make teams drowsy.
The next 7 days will be quite exciting ... hopefully happy too 😉
Considering how Casey played out the last Cavs game, and how the Cavs lined up an LBJ-Love frontcourt out the gate, I wouldn't be shocked if a couple of key rotation players got that night off. Ibaka especially. Casey didn't seem to want to show his hand with small lineups (Ibaka-Siakam frontcourt only got like a minute that game) anyway, and being able to go a little small with OG at the 4 against LBJ right out the gate is good for him to get reps in defending him - same goes for extended minutes for Siakam. And leaves Ibaka rested for the more important Boston game. IF the Raps like Cleveland in third, might not be an awful game to rest one of the stars too, depending on who seems to need it.
I think the Raptors should take both Boston games.
