The Pacer guards will cause some problems, but not enough to pose a real threat to Toronto (assuming they don't go belly-up like last year's playoffs).

Who is Paul George going to guard here? If he spends most of his time trying to slow down Wade, this could be a big series for Joe Johnson.

Paul George won't have to worry about Wade given that he's playing Toronto. Perhaps he should worry more about DeRozan.

Hahaha I guess that's what I get for responding to all 8 threads at the same time. I'm getting my wires crossed I guess.

Meant to click Raptors in 6 here. Would be great to finally see the Raptors get over the round 1 hump and see if they can make some noise. Avoiding the Cavs until the potential ECF is huge.

Raps have had a great season but still don't trust them, Pacers have a coaching advantage and Paul George can get hot and win a game or two.

If the Raptors lose again in the first round, what do you think happens next season?

Dwayne Casey got a vote of confidence but I doubt he'd survive, also might lead to DeRozan leaving in FA which might not be the worst thing in the world for the Raptors.

Why don't you like DeRozan? He and Lowry have played very well together this season.

Though admittedly I'm afraid the Lakers will throw a ton of money at him this offseason.

DeRozan is fine but not having a 3 pt shot hurts his value, Lowry is awesome TOR best lineup the last time I looked was him and the bench unit.

Lakers have so much capspace and need to sign players, I'd rather have DeRozan at $20+M than Harrison Barnes.

Barnes is a restricted free agent, anyway. I think Warriors would match. But I agree with you I would rather have DeRozan than Barnes.

Re: Eastern Conference First Round: #2 Toronto Raptors vs. #7 Indiana Pacers

I had to pick the Pacers, but Toronto's looking great this season. Indy has a ton of guard depth so we can always make runs, but I think we'll need multiple 30+ point games from Paul George and a mildly consistent, February version of Myles Turner to have a chance. They're really the only two matchups we have in our favor.

Re: Eastern Conference First Round: #2 Toronto Raptors vs. #7 Indiana Pacers

I think DeMarre Carroll is going to play a big part in this series. While I think PG will guard DeRozan a lot, he'll have Carroll defending him. If he can slow down PG, this series will be over sooner than we think. Monta vs. Lowry will be fun.

Re: Eastern Conference First Round: #2 Toronto Raptors vs. #7 Indiana Pacers

Am I the only one rooting for pacers wins just to see Porno have meltdowns over the refs and coaching?
