This Raptors team is so fun and gritty.

Kyle Lowry maybe one of the most underrated players of the last twenty years. He is always a huge net plus by all analytical metrics, is a great defender and playmaker, all while being an efficient shooter. He and Nurse make a great team.

I like Lowry, but FVV is the engine that drives that train.

He wouldn't have the fuel if Lowry didn't store hot food for him during the game inside his ass. It's always been Lowry.

Edit: Okay, that's dumb as fuck.
I'm guessing you didn't watch earlier in the season while Lowry was out? FVV has been a beast this season and took a leap that I don't think anyone expected.

What a story it would be if the Raptors went back to back. Lowry would finally get the recognition he deserves. Fun team that's well coached with likeable players...didn't know that could exist in the NBA.

The team just has so many guys that can score and make plays for teammates and defend at a high level. Siakam, Lowry, FVV, nor OG are superstars, but man, that team may be deep enough to get through the East and beat Milwaukee.

The Sixers are like Two-Face: maybe best team in the league at home and so mediocre on the road.
Strange as homecourt in general has been getting weaker

Moving Horford to the bench seemed to work... But the Clippers are slowly starting to take advantage of the Sixers' poor spacing.

They're now 25-2 at home and 11-19 on the road. That's insane literally the best team in the league at home with wins over the Bucks, Lakers, and Clippers and then a lottery team on the road.

Always makes me laugh. This is your job. You can't go win some away games you're soft as shit, straight up. . .

Poor Victor Oladipo. 6 for 31 shooting for 16 points total in his last two games, both losses, and he probably singlehandedly lost both games for the Pacers. Just doesn't have the physical ability to play the role he used to. Hopefully he can play himself into shape. Very much respect him as a person as a player and he was in a great situation prior to his injury.
Very good ESPN article on Oladipo's comeback. Going to be tough for him to be fully back and the team to be adjusted by playoff time. Didn't realize that his injury was quite so catastrophic; only three players have ever had it.

Coming right off a catastrophic injury shooting 13 shots per game with a 27.1 USG rate with 29.5/23.1 shooting split explains their immediate 6 game losing streak after being inserted immediately into the starting lineup. I think an honest conversation is in order because there is not much time to get the rust off. Sabonis and Brogdon should be the 1-2 options for this year this year then re-assess VO's role next season.
