It’s been 2 decades – but FINALLY – The Toronto Raptors have advanced out of the second round of the NBA playoffs!
“Just the things that we’d been through this year, and how hard we’ve worked,” Lowry said of the moment. “Just an emotional time, just being able to sit there and relax, and kind of breathe. Playing against a team like Miami, it pushed us to the limit, and so it was just a time to relax and just think about the things that we’ve done.”
Up next, it’s a trip to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers and King James. Many are saying that this is as far as the Raptors will go, but I feel these guys have the makings to go the distance. Raptors Nation, who have survived and struggled, allowed themselves a chance and a little redemption.
As a Canadian NBA franchise, the odds are always stacked against you. Now, people have to take notice. The North is coming.
