    Love this matchup.

    So much IQ on the floor for both teams.

    Excited for this. Hoping for a long and competitive series. Tdot is hyped. Go raptors!!!

    All aboard the Tor bandwagon but I think GS takes it in 6

    That seems like the safe bet.

    Love this raptors team but I think Green on Siakam is going to muck up a lot of want they want to do offensively and make it tougher on Kawhi.

    Couple miscommunications on exit screens and offensive rebounds hurting Raptors. Been excellent defensively otherwise.

    So much defensive talent. So damn smart.

    The Warriors are rebounding pretty well. I thought this would be an area Toronto could exploit.

    No live ball turnovers and better floor balance on shot attempts also helps...

    Yup. Got caught in cross matches that we did a terrible job communicating out of.

    Our two "best defenders" in Aminu and Harkless Unfortunately dont have high basketball iq, and they wouldn't be even in the rotation for neither Golden State or Toronto

    They called a moving screen on Looney and a blocking foul on Curry. Where were these calls for us

    This game is going perfectly for Toronto so far. When Houston beat GS three times last year, they did it by keeping the scoring low. So far so good for Raptors. Of course, there's a third quarter. We'll see if Toronto is ready for it.

    Marc Gasol has been phenomenal in this game.
