Who will win the Conference Semifinals series of the Raptors vs. 76ers?

76ers in six.

It will be a difficult task for the Raptors to face the Sixers in uncharted territory -- the semi finals.

If they're going to win this one, I think it will be a come-from-behind victory, because I don't see the Sixers losing any of the first two on home court...

..hope I'm wrong, though! :)

I gotta cheer for the Raptors but its going to be tough like Lee said. Matchups are pretty good though I think. It all depends on what Toronto teams comes out to play.

Sixers in 6. The Raptors surprised me in the series with the Knicks but the Sixers are hot and the Knicks weren't.

I predict ....
The Sixers in 6! Like I said ... Sixers in the finals. Though I REALLY wish that they could have played the Knicks :(

Well Game 1 is tonight. I know I'll be watching. What a night, with COL vs LA and this game. I need to put some new batteries in my remote (or get PIP :) )

I have to go with the 76ers.

76ers in 6

WOW! What a game 1 and guess who comes out on top?! TORONTO!

Philly took an early lead and then Toronto stormed back and lead by as much as 17 before winning the game by 3. Vince came up big this game scoring I think 35 and Iverson scoring 36 in the losing effort.

Now that they took 1 in Philly, it shouldn't be as much pressure when they head home. Looks to be a great series. GO RAPTORS!!

No kidding, Peter!... as the road team, you always need to win the first game to gaurantee the split.. that takes off some pressure and you don't relax, but you feel good of your chances knowing you can go home up 2-0 but, at the worst, 1-1 tie!

Great game for the Raptors!... I watched it all!... defense was shaky in the mid-3rd/all-of-the-4th quarter, but they held on the "W"

..that said, series aren't won in a single game... it's a series.. the Raps just have to keep it up for a few more games! :)

NickHammy 05-07-2001 08:28 PM

This could possibly be a very close series.

PeterDewar 05-08-2001 06:06 PM

Well Game 2 is coming up and I'm pumped. How sweet would it be to go home up 2-0! But I don't want to say too much, we'll just wait and see what happens.

why's everyone saying philli in 6. I say Toronto in 6. Toronto won their first game, so even if they lose the next at philli it owuld be 1-1, then they play two games at home, if they win those they'd be 3-1, then they go back to philli, so the'll probably lose there, but then they come back to toronto up 3-2. so i think toronto will win in 6. but if the philli's do win it would be in 7 because i don't think they'd win game six in Toronto.

NickHammy 05-08-2001 08:48 PM

I want the Raptors to win, I just don't think they will...

J_Sinclair 05-08-2001 10:14 PM

I think they'll win. Maybe if Philli still had kukoc and Ratliff they would've beaten T.O, but Mutombo makes philli slower and he doesn't get many points. And even though Mutombo can get a lot of rebounds, the raptors could just put Keon Clark at center and Antonio Davis at PF.
