His mind is already in LA, and this will be a complete failure.

I don't think its a foregone conclusion Kawhi will leave. Here in Canada he is "THE MAN" and one of the best things to happen in Canadian sports in decades. He is the face of the Raptors and the way he has played is beyond amazing. In LA, he will always be 2nd to LeBron, even if he is on another team. He will be just another great player among other great players, while here in Toronto he is the undisputed greatest. Only time will tell.

Toronto are good enough to get a 2-0 lead especially if Durant isn't available yet, and we know Curry can throw in a brickfest or two in Finals.....and most importantly Toronto have the clutchest player in the series, and he's clutch at both ends, so if these games are close than Toronto may sweep Golden State.

Lets, not get carried away here. They are still the defending champs, and remember they had already won titles before Durant got there. The playoffs are a different season, ask all those top seeded NHL teams. But still good luck to the Raptors.

Let's pump the brakes, it's only one game. I want Toronto to win too, but mostly because I can't stand Golden state. As an overall team, they are a cocky bunch. Plus, Toronto's never won, and that's a nice storyline.

Toronto, if they keep up with the "D", they should go six or seven rounds. But nobodies getting swept, certainly not Golden State.

Toronto's been a top defensive team for the past few years, before adding two DPOYs. And it seems like it's affecting GSW, on top of their postseason mileage and injuries. I can't rule out a sweep, I'll just say that it's highly unlikely.

Leonard is too injured to consistently control the game now.
He can draw fouls but he's not healthy enough to shoot the ball with fluidity.
Toronto would be up 2-0 if Leonard was healthy....
Whereas not as big of a deal if GS get injuries, they have several stars to carry them.
Especially crucial that Leonard carry's Toronto because some of his most important players have no finals experience - Siakam and Lowry especially important.
