By Some Act Of Canadian Witchery, The Raptors Have Tied The Eastern Conference Finals

We all owe the Toronto Raptors an apology, because someway, somehow, the Toronto Raptors have tied the Eastern Conference Finals with a 105-99 game four victory.

How did we get to this point? A few days ago we were all prancing around the internet making funny jokes about Drake and Kyle Lowry’s mental health.

But we can’t do that anymore, because somehow, the Toronto Raptors have tied the Eastern Conference Finals with a 105-99 game four victory.

How did this happen?

It helps when Lowry and Demar DeRozan shoot a combined 28 of 43, for a total of 67 points, their most as a duo. 67!

It also helps when Cleveland falls back on bad tendencies (overshooting the three), and it helps exponentially when Kevin Love gets a phantom injury and sits for the most important part of the game. Love played only 30 minutes, and sat on the bench for the entire fourth quarter in favor of resident old man Richard Jefferson. He shot 4 of 14.

Toronto led by nine points entering the fourth quarter, and weathered a lightning quick run by Cleveland, which led by four at one point. In the last few minutes, DeRozan looked like a star, demanding the ball and getting big buckets on consecutive offensive trips.

Toronto and Cleveland shot similar numbers from the field (Toronto was 42/78 overall, Cleveland was 39/83 overall), but the important difference came at the free throw line, where the Raptors shot more 10 attempts than the Cavs, and converted six more shots.

We are sorry Toronto. This is a series now.

  1. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be a lot more useful
    than ever before.
