Mike Bossetti and Brian Boake discuss the Toronto Raptors game against the Milwaukee Bucks, and give their thoughts on the each Eastern Conference team.

  • The Milwaukee Bucks game: What went wrong for the Bucks? How badly did the refs botch the end of the game? Are the Bucks a team to be afraid of come post-season time?
  • Breakdown of the Eastern Conference, first Detroit Pistons: The two big-men playing style, Detroit's lack of guard play, how will Blake Griffin's contract age?
  • Miami Heat: Team's odd group of effective starters. The Heat's depth and a bench that can matchup with the Raptors. 
  • Philadelphia 76ers: The scariest potential first round opponent? Joel Embiid's impact on the game. Ben Simmon's weaknesses. Philly's size and defensive impact. 
  • Milwaukee Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo's greatness. A team filled with extreme length. How greatly the defense has improved since Jason Kidd was replaced. The Bucks are perhaps the sleeper in the entire Eastern Conference.
  • Indiana Pacers: Surprise team of the East. Victor Oladipo's resurgence. The Pacer's lack of secondary players. Are the Pacers the easiest potential 2nd round opponent?
  • Washington Wizards: The trickiest team to evaluate? What is the reason of success with John Wall out? Bradley Beal is the real driving force? Will the Wizards be able to incorporate Wall in time?
  • Boston Celtics: The greatness of Brad Stevens. Are the Celtics too reliant on Kyrie Iriving? Is Boston to weak in the players just under Al Horford? Can a team rely on Jason Tatum yet? How scary are the Celtics in future years? 
  • Cleveland Cavaliers: Still the favorite? How does the trade change the evaluation of the Cleveland Cavaliers? Is Tristian Thompson still a crucial piece? Will they be able to incorporate Kevin Love back in time?
