Cavs Nation’s First Round NBA Playoff Predictions
The Raptors and Wizards are two virtually even teams on paper as they present good matchups at every position and the backcourt alone is already an explosive collision of speed and athleticism with John Wall and Bradley Beal burning rubber against Kyle Lowry and DeMar Derozan. Toronto loves to hoist those long bombs, an area which Washington has problems controlling, but the Wizards possess a deeper frontline. If the Wiz plan to put the Raptors campaign into extinction, their bench must step up. At the top of it all, the biggest thing going for Washington is that they got the best player in this series who goes by the name John Wall and his health and dynamic ability to significantly impact ballgames and make his peers look better will be the deciding factor that will push the Wizards to the East Semis.
Fearless Forecast: Washington wins, 4-3.
