WHAT MAKES THIS GAME INTERESTING?

Just about everyone wrote the Raptors off when Kawhi Leonard left town.

And yet here they are, ready for action against Boston in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals after sweeping Brooklyn in Round 1.

It’s been a remarkable effort all season from Toronto, with Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell taking big steps forward in particular.

Toronto had a bad run against Boston in the regular season, losing three of their four games against the Celtics.

But the postseason is a different game altogether.

The Raptors entered the series as favourites, and now it’s up to them to show why.
