Shutting down Siakam

The Raptor’s half-court offense is miserable and Pascal Siakam is not helping. After going just 5-for16 from the floor in the first game, he slumped again in game two finishing 6-for-16. The team overall is struggling offensively shooting just 26 percent from behind the 3-point line.

Boston has a better bench

The Boston bench is the difference in this series. The Raptors left the starters in longer than usual and that resulted in tired legs late in the game. The Celtics depth allows a tougher defensive presence and the ability to switch on defense when needed. The Raptors can play better on offense, but they just don’t have the depth to sustain pressure against the Celtics.
