This has been quite a season for the Toronto Raptors.
But an impressive regular season doesn’t amount for much if you can’t win in the playoffs and, right now, that’s the only thing this team is concerned with. It all gets underway today.
The Raptors fell in a heartbreaking Game 7 loss to Brooklyn two years ago before being swept out of the playoffs by Washington last year. Now, Toronto is focused on erasing those recent memories with this year’s matchup against the Indiana Pacers.
Tip-off for Game 1 of the opening series is slated for 12:30 p.m. ET and is being broadcast in the United States on ESPN and on SportsNet in Canada. Not going to be near a TV when things get underway? That’s totally cool. Read on for all your best live stream options:
