Raptors in Crisis, LeBron in GOAT Mode, Scary Terry vs. the Sixers
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by talking through the collapse of the Raptors through the first two games in Toronto. What has gone wrong? Which was more demoralizing: Game 1 or Game 2? And where does the franchise go from here? Then they talk through LeBron's dominance in this series (17:00) and the evolution of his game over the past few years. From there they move to Boston (29:00) where the Celtics are looking like the most complete organization in the NBA, while the Sixers have questions: What happened to Ben Simmons? Can Joel Embiid solve Al Horford on defense? Will the Celtics miss shots on the road? At the end (50:00): checking in with Dante Exum and Jazz-Rockets, the latest twists in the Kawhi saga, and Carmelo's future in OKC.
