    UPDATE
    Gregory Sanders has been cleared and will join the team in Dallas for the final game of the season.

    Sanders will return straight to the starting 5.
    Sanders has averaged 13.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 24.2 minutes played through 57 games this season. A very injury tolled season for the sophomore.


    EDIT:

    And it results in a...
    @ DAL W 120-84

    In his return, Gregory Sanders played 17 minutes and gabbed 4 rebounds and scored 3 points. He also got an assist and a block. He was 1 for 2 in FG attempts and was a perfect 1 for 1 from the free throw line. At least he got some preparation heading into the playoffs.

    We've ended the season, an injury riddled season and we've come out with an amazing record. 61-21 which marks THE 10 straight season with 60+ wins. Our profit hit around $30 mil and now sits at $11 mil which is amazing.
    However, David Bennett is currently injured which sucks.

    Well we have the Milwaukee Bucks first round. They're a pretty easy team to defeat tbh. They're best player is youngster Donald Greene who is a 69 overall. Then they have long time Buck Damien Inglis at 66 overall. We'll be having to face Justin Lemelin again who has grown to 62. Frank Ward and Sydney Moser complete the starting 5 at 53 and 46 overall. They've got a crappy bench with a couple youngsters. Bruce Hughes is their best bench player at 53 overall. Milwaukee are trying to develop Jason Parrett who they're touting as the next big thing in Milwaukee.
    Should be fun. We should definitely be able to slide by them.

    LET'S GET IT!

    We CHOKED like crazy. Sanders and Caboclo each with 20. Zimmerman looks like he's dying... Wiggins played defensively... The bench was good.
    DAMIEN INGLIS WITH 39 JFC. DONALD GREENE WITH 30 and 10 boards...

    They've got a nice team tbh. Not gonna change anything yet as we choked here. Need a strong performance in game 3 or we shuffle.

    MIL 32 18 17 19 = 86

    Holy jfc the defense. These two teams play sooo tight. GREAT COMEBACK FOR THE RAPTORS. Quickly solving problems by the end of the 2nd quarter. Parr was our highest scorer at 15... Wiggins was invincible. Caboclo and Sanders finished with 13 each. Bench had to come in with 37 points... After looking at the quarter by quarter result, it looked great but then the players... awe.
    Greene with a double-double, 21-11-2. Syder Moser posted 17 points.

    Yet another tight game where we saw lock down defense from these two, but this one will mean a lot more for the Bucks as they look to tie this one up as before it goes to Toronto.
    GAME 4 @ Milwaukee
    Injuries
    Toronto Raptors - David Bennett out with a sprained knee
    Milwaukee Bucks - None

    GAME 4

    @ MIL L 89-103
    TOR 22 18 19 30 = 89
    MIL 27 30 30 16 = 103

    WE. GOT. KILLED. LMAO. Parr and Caboclo with 19 each. Big Z with a damn double-double. OMG THE BENCH AND SANDERS. KILLED US.
    Greene dropped 30. Lemelin with 23. Ward with 16. Their top 5 was DEADLY.

    So we definitely need to make changes. I've put Caboclo all the way at the top to portray him as the leader and I've moved Wiggins down one. Switched Parr up for Zimmerman. And finally, I've slotted Kenneth Rees into the last starting spot and have pushed Sanders to the sixth man role. I just realized that Parr is the reigning sixth man of the year but he's too high of an overall to drop him. This should shake things up.

    Toronto Raptors Stats
    - Bruno Caboclo 19 PTS, 8 AST, 7 REB
    - Charles Parr 19 PTS, 6 AST, 4 REB
    - Gerald Zimmerman 10 PTS, 10 REB (Double-Double)

    Milwaukee Bucks Stats
    - Donald Greene 30 PTS, 7 REB
    - Damien Inglis 23 PTS, 6 REB, 5 AST
    - Frank Ward 16 PTS, 7 REB
    - Justin Lemelin 11 PTS, 8 AST

    After a blowout win to tie the series up, the Raptors are back in Toronto looking to go up for the third time in this series.
    GAME 5 vs Milwaukee
    Injuries

    Milwaukee Bucks - None
    Toronto Raptors - None

    GAME 5

    vs MIL W 103-96
    MIL 33 17 18 28 = 96
    TOR 23 28 28 24 = 103

    Omg, another tight game. Rees eventually got injured but he's safe and sound. Only played 18.5 minutes and was meh. Our team still doesn't look good. Parr led with 18. Caboclo with 15. Wiggins and Rickard with 14 each.
    Greene bursted with 20 and Lemelin came in with 17.

    I honestly don't know what to do. I think we should put Rickard into the top 5. Slot Rees to the 7th spot. We're just not clicking.

    Milwaukee Bucks Stats
    - Donald Greene 20 PTS, 6 REB

    The Raptors pulled away with a win and the serie lead but they'll face a hungry Milwaukee squad at home looking to force a game 7.
    GAME 6 @ Milwaukee
    Injuries

    Toronto Raptors - None
    Milwaukee Bucks - None

    GAME 6

    @ MIL L 76-86
    TOR 23 20 15 18 = 76
    MIL 13 40 14 19 = 86

    OMG THE OFFENSE, WAT? What happened in the 2nd half... God damn, the game where we play splendid defense our offense chokes.
    Caboclo led with 16 and Parr had 15. Awe team is really dying.
    Donald Greene posted a double-double. Their highest scorer was Greene with 14 as well.
    OMGGGGGG.

    We can't pull a string of 2 wins. It's been W, L, W, L, W etc. Luck is on our side! But we need a good lineup. Jfc Rickard cannot play in the top 5. We're gonna go with something like this...
    Andrew Wiggins
    Gerald Zimmerman
    Bruno Caboclo
    Gregory Sanders
    Charles Parr
    ----------------------
    Kenneth Rees
    Brett Rickard
    DeMar DeRozan
    Samuel John
    etc.
    Hopefully this works.

    Greene, Inglis and Ward with double-double's. Greene led with 17.

    Rickard was also injured and will miss a bit of the 2nd round.

    Yea, a pretty scary occurrence. This is also Brett Rickard's former team and he'll miss the first three games :/ They've got a youngster and a veteran in Fred Corrigan and Marcus Smart who are both 69's. They have a 64 overall Michael Campos and a 63 overall Don Bain in their. Brandon Knight occupies the last starting spot at a 52 overall. Their bench has two 59's in Nunley and Cox and then a 52 overall Nikola Mirotic who is still effective. Then their bench goes off but its still good enough to do damage.
    Scary team tbh. We have players to match up against them but we need to shut them down. Our defense has sucked in these playoffs. We just need the boys, Wiggins and Big Z to get it going.

    LET'S GET IT!

    Division rivals Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors go at it in what should be an entertaining 2nd round match up.
    GAME 1 vs Boston
    Injuries

    Boston Celtics - None
    Toronto Raptors - Brett Rickard out 3 games with a sprained ankle

    GAME 1
    vs BOS L 87-98
    BOS 20 33 20 25 = 98
    TOR 16 26 25 20 = 87

    Everytime... Boston was just too good. Our team looks like they've fallen a bit. Players are not living up to their hype.
    Kenneth Rees led this team with 14 points. 45 points from the bench compared to the 42 from the starting 5...
    Corrigan and Bain both with double-double's. Corrigan went off for 28 and their top 5 with points in double digits each.

    Need to change things up. This is a bit crazy but I'm gonna do it. DeMar DeRozan is returning to the starting 5. Sanders will be bumped to the sixth man position and Rees will be bumped as well. Zimmerman is sliding as well. Need to send a message to guys like Parr, Wiggins and Zimmerman that they have to do something.

    Boston Celtics Stats
    - Fred Corrigan 28 PTS, 11 REB (Double-Double)
    - Don Bain 13 PTS, 10 REB (Doubl-Double)
    - Marcus Smart 10 PTS, 8 REB, 6 AST
    - David Nunley 8 PTS, 7 REB, 4 AST

    Toronto Raptors Stats
    - Andrew Wiggins 12 PTS, 7 REB, 5 STL
    - Bruno Caboclo 10 PTS, 7 REB, 5 AST
    - Johnathan Smith 12 PTS, 8 REB

    After a slippery game 1, the Raptors look to make good of their changes and tie this thing up.
    GAME 2 vs Boston
    Injuries

    Boston Celtics - None
    Toronto Raptors - Brett Rickard out 2 games with a sprained ankle

    GAME 2

    vs BOS W 101-82
    BOS 29 23 9 21 = 82
    TOR 28 17 34 22 = 101

    OMG THAT 3RD QUARTER LMAO BOSTON. After the 3rd, it was done. Great defense this game. Knight had 9 turnovers lol. The team did do a bit better all around. Still, we look out of place. Caboclo with 33 POINTS and 11 rebounds for the double-double. Parr was also fantastic with 19 of his own. Sanders and Rees were great from the bench. DeRozan was pretty bad but at least he got the team going.
    Bain dropped 26 while Corrigan had 21. Smart grabbed 11 rebounds. Campos was shut down however.


    We really came at their starting 5 and closed them. However Samuel John was injured. It'll be a minor injury however. Nikola Mirotic of the Boston Celtics was also injured. He's gonna miss a couple of games.
    Now I'd switch DeRozan with Sanders but this game was sooo good. I think I've gotta give DeRozan another go.

    Boston Celtics Stats
    - Don Bain 26 PTS, 9 REB
    - Fred Corrigan 21 PTS, 6 REB
    - Marcus Smart 11 REB

    Two strong games from the Celtics and Raptors have these two in a 1-1 lock as both teams look to take the lead here in Boston.
    GAME 3 @ Boston
    Injuries

    Toronto Raptors - Brett Rickard out with a sprained ankle, Samuel John out with patellar tendinitis
    Boston Celtics - Nikola Mirotic out 3 games with a strained rotator cuff

    GAME 3

    @ BOS W 110-108
    BOS 26 24 26 32 = 108
    TOR 22 29 25 34 = 110

    Bruno Caboclo got injured... and there goes our season :/ In other news, Charles Parr hit the game-winning basket with 6.3 SECONDS left. We REALLY needed the team to step up as Bruno Caboclo only played 4 minutes. The bench had to pull through here. Sanders with a double-double. Kenneth Rees with 19. Brice Johnson poured in 12 only playing 17.6 minutes. Parr led with 20. And of course Wiggins was defensive again.
    Knight posted a double-double. Bain went off for 28. Corrigan had 18.

    Bruno Caboclo will miss the rest of the series. We're doomed. At least we get Rickard and John back. So I've decided, Kenneth Rees looks comfortable starting as shown in Charlotte so we should give him a chance. DeRozan will be the sixth man as we've won two with him starting. Rickard will be the 7th man and I'm HOPING, he can bury his former team.


    Raptors 2-1 series lead

    The Raptors look for a string of three wins in the playoffs for the first time but it'll be a tough taks as their best playoff performer Bruno Caboclo is done for the series.
    GAME 4 @ Boston
    Injuries

    Toronto Raptors - Bruno Caboclo out 7 games with a sprained shoulder
    Boston Celtics - Nikola Mirotic out 2 games with a strained rotator cuff

    GAME 4
    @ BOS L 97-103
    TOR 31 19 26 21 = 97
    BOS 23 28 18 34 = 103

    OMG how do we let a lead like that disappear... A strong 1st quarter which led to a whoopee 2nd but then we maintained ourselves in the 3rd. Then the 4th quarter was a blowout...
    Wiggins finally broke out with 20 points to lead the Raptors. It's like Caboclo was hiding him all along. Sanders with 15 and yet again Parr and Zimmerman looked like crap on the offense.
    Corrigan with 21, Campos with 20 and Bain with 16 for Boston.

    I'm actually happy I didn't give a five year to Zimmerman. Jfc he's be slipping this season. Not going to change up the lineup as we choked in the end. We played well, just got to maintain the lead. Plus we return to Toronto for game 6. We've got to win it.

    Toronto Raptors Stats

    The series heads back to Toronto after a Boston Celtics comeback in the late stages of game 4.
    GAME 5 vs Boston
    Injuries

    Boston Celtics - Nikola Mirotic out with a strained rotator cuff
    Toronto Raptors - Bruno Caboclo out 6 games with a sprained shoulder

    GAME 5

    vs BOS L 80-95
    BOS 20 23 17 35 = 95
    TOR 21 24 16 19 = 80

    Well then... Another 4th quarter comeback from the Celtics leaves the Raptors in awe. AWWEEEEEE. I honestly don't know how we keep on choking. Plus, our offense was disastrous.
    Wiggins was the only highlight with 21.
    Smart had a double-double. Corrigan dropped 25 to sink Raptors fans' hearts.

    We need offense so here's what we're gonna do. No auto sorting roster here, I'm gonna actually try and do this. I'm gonna go...
    A. Wiggins SF - C. Parr G - G. Zimmerman C - G. Sanders F - K. Rees SG
    Rickard will be the sixth man. I've brought up offensive talents such as J. Smith and then John AND B. Johnson. Bennett and DeRozan will be after those guys.
    It's been a great run, it really doesn't matter if we lose. We've accomplished a lot.


    Boston Celtics Stats
    - Fred Corrigan 25 PTS, 4 REB
    - Marcus Smart 13 PTS, 11 REB (Double-Double)
    - Michael Campos 15 PTS, 6 REB, 5 AST
    - Brandon Knight 15 PTS, 5 AST
    - Don Bain 9 REB

    Toronto Raptors Stats
    - Andrew Wiggins 21 PTS, 5 REB
    - Gregory Sanders 8 REB, 5 BLK, 4 AST

    Celtics 3-2 series lead

    The Raptors look to cling on and send this to game 7 after two heartbreaking chokes.
    GAME 6 @ Boston
    Injuries

    Toronto Raptors - Bruno Caboclo out 5 games with a sprained shoulder
    Boston Celtics - None

    GAME 6

    @ BOS L 82-84
    TOR 16 21 26 19 = 82
    BOS 22 21 22 19 = 84

    No comeback this time, just couldn't get the dagger :(
    Tough how our offense dried up.
    Wiggins had a double-double with 18-15-1. Parr dropped 16 and Zimmerman, Sanders and Rees looked cold.
    Corrigan had a double-double. Bain planted 16.

    Ever since the Caboclo injury, our team kept losing and the offense was never the same again. Our team was just out of place ever since the playoffs started. Our only hope was literally Caboclo.

    Toronto Raptors Stats
    - Andrew Wiggins 18 PTS, 15 REB (Double-Double)
    - Charles Parr 16 PTS, 6 AST, 4 REB

    Boston Celtics Stats
    - Fred Corrigan 14 PTS, 10 REB, 3 STL, 3 BLK
    - Don Bain 16 PTS,
    - David Nunley 10 PTS, 8 REB

    Celtics defeat Raptors 4-2.

    That's 18 for Boston. Even after suffering a couple of injuries, Boston prevails. Tbh, it was a pretty neat Conference finals. Otero and Caboclo got injured and another Brooklyn-Toronto match up was denied and Boston came out big.

    HOF Inductees
    Derrick Rose

    Okay, I'ma vent a little. Derrick FREAKING Rose gets inducted into the Hall of Fame but DeRozan doesn't... I know before 2014, Rose was the star and DeRozan didn't really prove anything yet. But the man has got more rings than Jordan now. Literally, Derrick Rose did nothing after he left Chicago in 2017. Memphis was nothing. He made the 2nd team All-League twice in 2014 and 2015. He played 825 games since we took over and he managed to not get injured. Congrats.
    DEMAR DEROZAN on the other hand played 884 games under our power. On top of the 7 RINGS that he won he made the FIRST team All-League in 2014 and 2015. Both years where Rose only achieved the 2nd All-League. He then made the 2nd All-League in 2017. And to top it all off, DEROZAN WAS THE 2015 FINALS MVP. Totally snubbed. (Tbh, its probably a problem in the game but f***.)

    To end off on a good note, as you can see DeMar DeRozan announced his retirement along with many other NBA greats. We'd like to thank Kyle Lowry, Daniel Byrd, Terrence Ross, Patrick Patterson and Russell Westbrook on their winning efforts with the Toronto Raptors.
    But mostly, we'd like to thank the what the heart and soul of this team was for the past decade and a half years, DeMar DeRozan.
    7 rings, a couple All-League teams and the 2015 Finals MVP.
    You came out of this league a winner #ThankYouDeMar

    I can assure you that DeMar DeRozan's #10 will be the first number to be retired and set to rafters by the Toronto Raptors.
