If you were one of those mooks who poo poo’d ‘Load Management’ this year, watch these jacks by Kawhi in a 30+ point blowout of the Sixers and reassess your position.

The Raptors used Kawhi as a decoy yesterday and everyone else did their job but the fact remains; Kawhi Leonard is the Raptors Loadstar and the other 4 guys are there to do what he can’t.
Danny Green remembered how to shoot 3’s and shined Drake…

…and the score sheet wasn’t lopsided yesterday. They won how they won all year. Sharing the ball, getting great looks, and Kawhi.
At worst, the Nick Nurse embarrassed the Sixers by making his first big adjustment of the series, using his supporting cast when Kawhi was doubled or tripled. Kawhi still ran the show. He found Danny and Kyle, Gasol turned into Magic Johnson/Gary Payton limiting Joel Embiid to 13 points. Siakam had 25 (stop with the ‘Spicy P’ moniker, it’s weak) and Serge Ibaka was a defensive monster, chipping in with 10 pts after getting stitched up early in the game.

I said Raps in 6. Still Raps In 6. Milwaukee is crushing Boston 3-1 and that series should end tonight. Raptors clinch tomorrow and you’re in a conference final with no Lebron and a beat up Bucks team.
I wouldn’t say it’s happening if I didn’t think it wasn’t happening.
Don’t get too high or low but you can basically book your trip to Golden State for the finals. Stay with Don Kollins. He lives about an hour away from Oracle and he always has Canadian beer.
