From the Archives: Raptors 905 Playoffs: Three Things to Watch For in Game 2

Originally posted April 7, 2017


Looking to close out the Eastern Conference semi-finals, the Raptors 905 return home to the Hersey Centre following a 112-107 victory over the Canton Charge on Wednesday evening.  You can find highlights hereand game recaps on D-League.com and Raptors Republic.  


Heading into game 2, I will be keeping my eye on the following three things:

1. Can Alex Toupane come close to repeating his career high 41 points from game 1?

2. Will the starters continue to play extended minutes?  As covered in the pre-series post, no one on the 905 roster averaged more than 28 minutes during the regular season.

3. Can the 905 get off to a fast start again and maintain the momentum this time at home?  The 905 outscore Canton 36-19 in the first quarter in game 1, but were outscored each quarter (25-26, 24-32, 27-30) for the remainder of the game. Look for the 905 fans to be a difference maker here.
