This will be a season long thread tracking my team for fun...these are not official wagers...those will be reserved for another thread.
Raps 1st Q -4
Raps 1st H -7
Refs were determined in the final 3 minutes to get Cleveland the cover...anyone watching the end to that game cannot deny all the highly suspect fouls called on the Raps giving the Cavs all those fts to stay within the number...it will likely become quite a trend to take Raps 1h at home, we shall see...something to note: without Derozan now, the Raps are not going to get to the line nearly as much as they did before...Leonard is not as much of a drive to the hoop guy as DD is, but Leonard is a much better 3 point shooter...should be interesting how this all impacts totals...i think the Raps could easily average 110pts a game this year, and their D can always be better with the size and talent on this team now to dig in at the defensive end...my gut says when they play better teams as the season goes on, their defensive intensity will be there and the under will be the better play...but taking unders with the Raps will be very sweaty, as they can also shoot the 3 very well and in volume.
My covers TSN2.0 post game wrapup Ramblings are officially done for the day.
Raps -2.5 and Under 209...this should be a very entertaining game with high intensity between the two legit teams which will most likely meet in the semis with the winner getting the honors to get whooped by the warriors in a gentlemens sweep in 5 games...I think defense early on will reign supreme leading to a possible 40-45pt 1st Q, which will set the tone for the rest of the game to remain under the number.
These plays are just for fun...not official people's champ locked in wagers.
