    • @Gregory Jarvis not. Even with Kawhi healthy y'all don't want no💨 with the warriors. Kyle Lowry is unreliable, and out of shape if he has to guard Curry he is going to get ran all over the court you see how that man moves without the ball Lowry is going to be gassed out there. Then Ibaka isn't a consistent scorer either and I know you dont think Gasol is going to do anything. That leaves Siakim and don't get me started on him.🤦and yall Betta tell Danny green to work on that shot cause he ain't been hitting them 3's like he suppose to

Game 5 will be all mental. & Whether or not kawhi sat for 20mins and the rest of the starters including the bench showed up to tonight's game, it truly came down to basketball iQ. Milwaukee does not have experienced vets to step it up (only 3pt shooters) and that alone has me edging for Raptors in six.

    xvillianxvillian4 aylar önce
    • If Raptors can have the same 'kawhi is just another player on the team' mentality that they had last night then yeah they can keep their momentum and close it out on homecourt Game 6, otherwise I think Kawhi will have to come in clutch on Game 7 if this is a home court series.

      Jonathan MurrinJonathan Murrin4 aylar önce
    • @Jonathan Murrin Realistically speaking, Kawhi will probably ask to play even if the medical staff deem it a risk lol. Just depends on how many minutes he plays. I've noticed Powell can guard Giannis fairly well, as long as he gets help on the drive..maybe that's a factor.

      Taylor LinTaylor Lin4 aylar önce
    • I was thinking the same thing. At this point in the series, do you take a chance on getting him some rest for a game in the hope that he's in much better shape for a definite game 6 (elimination game one way or anothet) and possible game 7? Or do you go for it with Kawhi playing at reduced efficiency. Lots of pressure on the medical staff, especially considering they must be on pins and needles hoping he doesnt do major damage in the process of playing hurt.

    • @Alex Jones Agree. Besides Houston, the Warriors really didn't have an elite defensive team like the Bucks and the Raptors. Portland had numerous defensive melt-downs and lost all leads they ever built because they couldn't defend. In Game 3 and 4, Draymond Green kept pushing the pace and caused so much confusion on Portland's defense. Plus, Lillard and McCollin are too undersized guards on the defensive end. Houston has excellent defense, but they are just undersized against the Warriors (ie. the number of offensive rebounds they gave away to the Warriors). I think either the Bucks and the Raptors will put up an excellent fight against the Warriors. And both team has home court advantage over the Warriors!

If Kawhi was thinking of keeping himself "healthy" after the playoffs, he would have taken at least Game 4 off to get some much needed rest. But no, Kawhi gave it all in Game 4.

    • @Bob Charlie Not only that, we as Raptors fans (especially me) forget to realize is- Kawhi knows Masai is doing everything he can to build a winning team around him, the load management the organization has taken to ensure Kawhi recovers from injury adequately, and the comradery/ trust that Kawhi has had a chance to develop with his new teammates all year long is what is going to insure he stays long-term .

      Mackenzie MacdonaldMackenzie Macdonald4 aylar önce
    • 1000% Correct. Whenever Toronto loses or wins people always mention that Kawhi is leaving and blah blah blah. PEople even said Kawhi would fake injuries just to have an excuse not to play in Toronto. Kawhi has shown A LOT of heart and dedication to the franchise. People treat him like an absolute god here. If Kawhi already made up his mind on leaving, he would of sat out game 3 after coming down weird after the dunk and gave up on his team. Did he? Absolutely not, he ended up playing almost an hour that game. Game 4 comes, Kawhi had a mediocre offensive game but the dude is soo disciplined on the defensive side it's crazy. He was on one leg the entire game and still managed to come up huge defensively. Kawhi is now my favourite player ever and am very honored to witness him play.
