There is no king in Cleveland.
Raptors can beat Cavaliers as they did back in January.

Actually, I think we have something to lose. A sweep, in my opinion, would be potentially fatal to Casey, if not to the whole team as constructed.

Winning a couple games , even while losing the series, could change the perception of the team, especially if the Cavs struggle in the next series.

The worst possible outcome for us would be a bad loss today, followed by the cavs losing the next series.

So I think we have more to play for than just pride.

Let's stop worrying about the future and live in the present.
If Raptors do not fight today till the last minute, the future does not matter.

Today is that day when they have to prove themselves and to the entire NBA world
they have the blood of champions running through their veins.

These games are the ones that make champions, or destroy teams.
It's all about who wants it the most.

Are we champions, or what ?

Nah, as Doc stated in another thread, this team has a 3-year window. We’ve all said and the team was transparent about this being a transition year. The organization won’t throw away all the positive steps made by players and the team as a whole. There will inevitably changes (one of the bigs likely will be moved and one or two multi-dimensional wing players added), but most of the team, including the coaching staff, should return. The question is whether Masai aggressively pursues a trade to land a star (granted not a whole lot available unless Leonard demands a trade).

I don't know man, masai was pretty pissed after last season. I get that it's a transition year, but being swept even while competing a little harder - not sure if that's going to fly.

LeBron was a dick this series so I hope he gets crushed by gsw again.

After this series I hope that Ujiri and Casey are taking the team to a psychologist.
For me is hard to understand how an entire team (Toronto Raptors) tremble with fear in Cleveland 

I think the psychological preparation of our players for this series has been deficient, to say at least.
We have the talent but we don't have the mental strength to fight through adversity.

How can we expect to win an NBA title when we whimper in Cleveland over and over again ?

Our 2 All Starts were MIA. [frown]    , so was our glorious bench.

But one good take is the excellent play of Jonas Valanciunas, who scored 18.
