Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic, my playoff day-after playoff column looked at the Raptors punching their ticket to the NBA Finals with a dramatic comeback against the Bucks.
The Toronto Raptors are going to the NBA Finals. I don’t really feel the need for more preamble than that.
As established by now, the morning after each playoff game, we’ll reconvene here to try to sort through everything that happened. I’ll continue to tweak the format — a key coaching decision, adjustments and rotations, key statistical trends and so on — based on feedback, so please keep that coming. I was going to name it “CheckMate” and we all lost on “Wake and Blake,” so here we are.
