The Toronto Raptors Are In Their First NBA Semi-Final Series

May 16, 2016

Yesterday Kyle Lowry scored 35 points and DeMar DeRozan added 28, (both game SEVEN point totals are divisible by SEVEN, as if that is important), as the Toronto Raptors cruised to victory in game 7 of their quarterfinal series vs the Miami Heat. The series victory puts the Raptors, in their 21st season, into their first NBA semi-final series.

Next the Raptors will be heavy underdogs vs the LeBron James led Cleveland Cavaliers. James is bidding to make his 6th straight finals appearance, the first four coming with the Heat. Miami dropped to (5-3) in quarterfinal series.

The Raptors are giving Toronto major North American sports league teams just their 5th semi-final appearance in 64 combined seasons since the Blue Jays won the World Series in 1993.

Now the Raptors have the seemingly daunting task of giving Toronto their first finals appearance in those combined 64 seasons for the NHL Maple Leafs, Major League baseball Blue Jays and themselves.
