Game 1s have never been kind to the Raptors.  Heading into Saturday's opening round game against the Wizards, Toronto had never won a Game 1 in the first round and had just one Game 1 victory in franchise history.

The game against the Wizards was a little too close for comfort at times for Toronto fans, but the Raptors got the job done and broke the Game 1 curse.

After the game, Raptors fans were feeling quite confident and they had every reason to feel that way as their team looked great.
