Herden also considered the Raptors to be a very good team in the regular round. He considered the Raptors to be able to disrupt the opponent’s strategy, especially having high players in all positions and being able to play solidly.
“They (Toronto Raptors) played very well. They seemed to mess up the opponent’s game and have a lot of players who are tall, athletic, solid defense,” he said.
Furthermore, Harden explained that Raptors players can take advantage of their excess body size very well and have good cooperation between players. He said the Raptors have a good defense and his team should be able to take every opportunity to score points.
“They use their length really well, and they just support each other. They run around, they scramble, and they fly around defensively, so for us we have to execute, make sure we’re sharp in our passes and if a shot is available, take it.” he concluded.
