Storytime: Raptors - 2018 Just Can’t Beat the Cavs (Pt. 1)
Updated: Aug 5, 2022
The 2017-18 Toronto Raptors had everything. An 11 man rotation, the top seed in the Eastern Conference, the NBA Coach of the Year, an All-Star guard duo, and a run of year-by-year success that seemed to be growing towards them finally getting over the hump and winning the East. The only problem? LeBron Raymone James Sr. In this month's Storytime we relive the 2017-18 season, culminating in the series of missed tip-ins that keep the Raps from winning Game 1 against Cleveland and ultimately bringing in the need for a major shakeup in the organization. In part one, we look back at the regular season, where the Raptors ride continuity to the top of the standings, and two big games in January have us dreaming that maybe it's not so crazy that they can go toe-to-toe with the King.
