The Raptors are back in the playoffs and a lot of fans south of the border don’t realize just how big a fan base the Raptors have. There are a lot of them and they are passionate.
And they are pumped for the playoffs. The Raptors put out this video to fuel that fire.
The Raptors vs. Nets first round series is going to be one of the better first round matchups — three of their four meetings this season were decided by four points or fewer. The last meeting was one of tighter, more entertaining games of the season (won by the Nets as the Raptors struggled to cover the Nets smaller lineup with Paul Pierce at the four). This could go seven games.
Raptors fans may have thought their team was tanking before the season started, but now they can smell the second round.
