Let's go Raptors!!
Raptors hype video will get you ready for the playoffs
The Raptors are coming off of their best season ever with a record of 56-26, but now the big show starts with a first round playoff battle against the Indiana Pacers. With the first game scheduled for Saturday, Raptor fever hasn't quite gripped the city just yet, but it's on the way. Helping out in that capacity is the first of what will likely be a number of hype videos. This one lays on the melodrama quite thick with its Star Wars theme, skyline shots, and references to the team's history, but it's got that date-with-destiny thing down pat. The Raps have only made it out of the first round once (all the way back in 2001), so expectations are ready to soar for a legit playoff run this year. It's time to get excited.
