Raptors lose to Celtics in the playoffs
Leafs fans: First time?
At least one Boston team makes it to the Conference Finals this year.
On Sept 12, the Toronto Raptors' championship reign has come to an end. The Boston Celtics held on 92-87 for a tight game 7 victory.
After 8 years, the Celtics will have their chance for a rematch against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. (In 2012, Miami defeated Boston in 6 games, advancing to the finals and ultimately winning the title)
As for the Raptors, while they did have another strong season and post-season, many expected them to falter on their way to the finals. Without Kawhi Leonard (traded to the LA Clippers last year), they are in need of that reliable star player. Until then, it was a good run.
