        Kyle Lowry was guarding Aaron Gordon in the post at times and was effective... but Ben Simmons is gonna be a problem? Watch some raptors games man!

          Clearly these guys don't watch raptors games these will be the main defensive matchups:
          Lowry on Redick
          Green on Butler
          Kawhi on Simmons
          Siakam on Harris
          Gasol on Embiid

            🤣😂 lol you already know kawhi is guarding Simmons

              Gasol vs Embiid
              Siakam vs Harris
              Green vs Butler
              Lowry vs Reddick
              Leonard vs Simmons

              If defense wins championships, on paper, it doesn't look good for 76ers.

              You never know it should be a good series.

                    After I saw that vicious elbow on Allen, I got zero respect for Joel Embiid. Zaza Pachulia should close out on him.

                      How much does Nick get paid to speak on a team he has never watched. At some point it becomes disrespectful to the organization, players and the fans.

                          Toronto ALSO lost the first game , then dominated the rest of the series.

                            >> To the Lowly n Low--Class Cavs fans out in the wild ... ...

                            *** Even, if Lebron is still playing for the Cavs, Lebron & the Cavs will be
                            bloodily SLAUGHTERED BIG Time by this ... 2019 version of the RAPTORS.

                            Lebron is DECLINING and DIMMING star who is disqualified to
                            even play in this 2019 playoffs.

                            OTOH, ...
                            Are you aware which Emerging SUPERSTAR are in the 2019 RAPTORS roster ??

                            Next season, 2020 Raptors will have another 2 EMERGING Superstars ...
                            Both of them are NON Lottery Picked players.
                            remember this name ... CHRIS BOUCHER and PATRICK McCAW.

                            Hopefully, you all have a good memory if you are not a NARCOTIC user.

                              Frenzcion Soup (Raps fan here) I agree with every statement here except two. 1- Lebron May be eliminated but he had another MVP-like season stat-wise. 2- I think we have young stars but Mccaw and Boucher ain’t it

                                So glad all these clowns picked the raps. They have no clue about what theyre saying and are always wrong. Carter sounds smart to stupid people. Dafuq does Lowry going back to Philly cause hes played at Villanova mean?? Clowns. 😂😂 Lets go Sixers!!

                                    Did this homie say Lowry is gonna guard Simmons?! That would be such a terrible coaching decision with that kind of size discrepancy! If history repeats itself, than Kawhi should be able to lock down Ben Simmons which is gonna really affect Philly’s offence. Still gonna be a great series regardless. I’m a Raps fan and honestly, I wanna see a healthy Embid! I don’t wanna hear excuses from Philly fans saying their big man wasn’t healthy.

                                      All 3 of these dudes (whether it be a pro Toronto or pro Philly comment) don't really seem to have a good grasp on either team and how they operate. Very poor segment.

                                        1. Kyle Lowry CAN guard MUCH bigger players in the post
                                        2. Kyle Lowry is most likely guarding JJ Reddick
                                        3. Ben Simmons has a 10 inch adv over Lowry, not 8
                                        4. Get your facts straight
                                        5. Humble yourself and stfu

                                                @Ethan M You're right. Kawhi is a GREAT defender, no doubt ! I think Ben may be a bit overwhelmed by his defense. If Ben has any issues they'll let Butler play the point and have Ben at PF where he can just focus on attacking the rim. Worked out well earlier this season. Damn there's gonna be like 8-9 awesome defenders out on the floor, shit will be interesting to say the least !

Its Ben "9th best defensive +/- in the league , guards all positions 1-5, got All Defensive votes his rookie season , gets 9+rebounds a game which would easily be 11+ (top 3ish) if his buddy Embiid (#2 rebounds this season) didn't live in the paint with him , oh and the leagues best facilitator/playmaker and he's 6'10+ and moves like a point guard " Simmons.

                                                    Kawai owns Simmons. Simmons with 24 turnovers when Kawai is guarding him. Embid has had his worse games against Gasol. Raptors go 8-9 deep, Philly has 5. Raps in 5 or 6 and that's only because the refs will give them a game or 2.

                                                      @Tybone 2222 No, Kawhi disrupts the flow of their offence when he guards Simmons. Toronto has 5 good defenders in their starting lineup, the other 4 can handle the rest

                                                    The minimization of Embiid's dominant presence is mind boggling. Marc Gasol can not deal with JoJo

If you can't read the cutting line, you get fouled out in couple plays by just "stand still". Offensive players don't just stupidly running into a "standing still" defender like they are blind, alright? It's about being at the right position at the right moment.

                                                      This is why TNT is so much better. They know that Kawhi is guarding Simmons.

                                                              Embiid has never dropped more than 15 on Gasol (including this season)

                                                              And then Philly’s bench pales in comparison to the Raptors’ bench.

                                                              Lebron is DECLINING and DIMMING star who is disqualified to
                                                              even play in this 2019 playoffs.

                                                              At this moment, only negative things can be said about Lebron.

                                                              Even, if Lebron is still playing for the Cavs, Lebron & the Cavs will be
                                                              bloodily SLAUGHTERED BIG Time by this ... 2019 version of the RAPTORS.

                                                              Are you aware which Emerging SUPERSTAR are in the 2019 RAPTORS roster ??

                                                              Next season, 2020 Raptors will have another 2 EMERGING Superstars ...
                                                              Both of them are NON Lottery Picked players.
                                                              remember this name ... CHRIS BOUCHER and PATRICK McCAW.

                                                            Raptors in 5 or 6. Only way Sixers would have a shot is if Ben Simmons doesn’t commit 10 turnovers a game against kawhi, if Ben Simmons magically develops a jump shot, or if Embiid miraculously becomes 100% healthy.
