Tonight’s Raptors playoff was a tough watch from the start. You knew it was going to be a tough night when Freddy Vanvleet got called for a foul 8 seconds into the game.
I don’t like to blame referees for a loss but tonight was BAD. Like the NBA doesn’t want the Raptors to win badly.
Nick Nurse said it right.

I mean he injured 4 Raptors and was the one to get all of the calls and shoot the free throws. It was painfully obvious none of the calls were going the Raptors’ way. He had his way with rookie Scotty Barnes and wasn’t called once.

Embiid is going to be a problem and the Raptors need to find a way to slow him down or this is going to be a clean sweep just like Shaq said.
