The Toronto Raptors are just minutes away from tip-off at the Air Canada Centre, where they will face the Indiana Pacers in the First Round of the 2016 NBA Playoffs. The Raptors squad is trying to improve from their effort from last year, where they made an early exit against the Washington Wizards. Luckily, for Raptors fans, the Wizards will not be able to cast their playoff jinx against the Raptors, as they did not make it into the 2016 NBA Playoffs.
The Raptors are coming off of a record-setting season. This season marks the first time in the Raptors’ 21-year history that the team has surpassed 50-wins, finishing with 56, as well as setting both home and away records for amounts of wins. Let’s hope the Raptors left a little in the tank for the playoffs, and that they can find a way to break out of the first round of the playoffs.
With the Raptors winning, the Jays just getting underway, and the Leafs headed for the fairways, things are really starting to look up for the Toronto sports teams.
Game starts at 12:30 EST!
