Analysis: The Raptors have struggled in the playoffs in the past, so I expect many to pick against them in the first round. However, this year’s Raptors team is different. Their bench is one of the best in the NBA, whereas it was one of the worst in years’ past. Fred Van Vleet, C.J Miles, Delon Wright, Jakob Poetl have become very solid for this Raptors team. This is all adding to DeMar Derozan and Kyle Lowry in the backcourt for the Raptors. I expect the Wizards to put up a great fight, as they are finally healthy and have John Wall back, but it won’t be enough to take down the best Raptors team we have seen in years.

Prediction: Raptors in 6
