    That’s a ridiculous take.

    Maybe, but I think Domi would have a lot of trouble trying to pull Shaq's sweater over his head.

    I think Bucks vs. Warriors would be interesting, at least, because Giannis is probably the best player in the league. Well, him or Harden - Warriors already handled Harden, so it would be interesting to see what they do with Giannis. Raptors, I think that's easier for them - just rotate their better defenders onto Leonard as much as they can and try to wear him down. He'll get his sometime, but you probably still win two or three games handily. (But I do agree with general consensus here, which seems to be Warriors in 4 to 6 games vs. either team.)

    He wouldn’t have to, have you seen a person who can’t skate before? They have no balance, they fall on their own.

    How so? Which calls did you not like?

    Giannis last foul was atrocious. Then Lopez got MeToo’d by two defenders.

    Still, the Bucks didn’t play well at all. Only encouraging part for them was it took 2 OT to lose.

    That's the thing that would still worry me if I was a Raptors fan.

    Rough outing from Giannis
    Head-scratching choices by Middleton
    Hideous display from Bledsoe
    A somewhat favorable whistle

    Still needed 2OT

    Both teams had 30 personal fouls last night.

    How was his last foul atrocious? It was a clear block.

    Giannis was moving. The raptor wasn't lowering his shoulder.

    Not sure it can be anything but a block.

    Lowry fouling out with 6 minutes left is an odd way for the refs to ensure a Raptor victory.
