While the Raptors have had a great regular season, the playoffs have been where they’ve notably struggled. Over the last several years, the Raptors have been swept by the Washington Wizards in 2015 despite having home-court advantage, lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 Eastern Conference Finals, and then got swept by Cleveland the following year in the 2017 semifinals.

This season, the Raptors have played much better team basketball, but it remains to be seen how good they’ll be come playoff time. It will mainly be their two All-Stars, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry, under the microscope. DeRozan is averaging 23 points, 3.9 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.1 steals per game. Lowry is averaging 16.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.1 steals per game.
