    Kawhi Leonard did all he could to keep the heavily favored Raptors in front, but the Magic were like zombies that kept rising from the dead, led by DJ Augustin's clutch 3 game winning 3.

    Guess Orlando Magic don't need SG/SF Terrance Ross. 😀😀😀
    He would look great at the OPPOSITE WING from SF Lebron James and a new Stretch-4.

          @8:00 Thank you for saying "difference" and not "differential" with the clocks. I hate when Marv Albert does that, and now everyone copies it.

                      Definitely get Gasol's minutes shaved, wouldn't you say start Ibaka and alternate that position to keep either Ibaka or Siakam on the floor at all times? Favor Siakam for sure, though starting Ibaka in favor of Siakam is I think something that would work for them better.

                        Why did coach call Augustin a "decent" shooter? Homie shoots 47/42 on the season and 38 from 3 for his career.

                          As a raptors fan, I say this as a fan of sports. Respect your opponent, as we saw raptors didn’t take these guys entirely serious and the loss was the result

                                too many players stood at no man's land. Green specially !. They didn't know where to go. Don't they know how to defend? Magic was really good. Why does Nurse send JLin to ruin things for the Magic...?

They keep running the same play over and over. its always Kawhi ISO, Kawhi ISO then Gasol screen. its always the same thing over and over. If Siakam has the ball its the same thing, Siakam ISO as well. its all ISO, ISO, ISO. Magic always get what they wanted on offense, if they wanted to force a switch, they were able to do so to force a mismatch. Meanwhile if youve watched the game not just the first game of the playoffs but throughout the season this Raptors team cant force a switch or a mismatch. I dont remember the last time they took advantage of Augustin on offense. If this a competent coach, he wouldve been able to figure out how to get Augustin guarding Kawhi and Kawhi will post up on him. Ive watched Spurs games since i was a kid and watched Kawhi on the spurs since his rookie season. I loved it when theres a smaller guy on the floor and they are able to force that guy to guard kawhi and kawhi will iso and post him up for an easy buckets. This L is on the coach.
