NBA Playoffs 2019: Raptors' Pascal Siakam on Game 5: 'We want to finish it at the house'

Now one win away from the second round, the Raptors are determined to take care of business on Tuesday when their first-round series with the Orlando Magic returns to Toronto.

"We want to finish it at the house," Pascal Siakam told reporters after Game 4. "That's our objective, knowing that we could definitely use some rest for sure.

"It's an important game and we know coming in - we want to just bring that same intensity that we've brought the past three games and finish it up."

After the Magic shocked them in Game 1, the Raptors have won three straight games to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. One of those wins was decided by five points, but the two others were blowouts, with the Raptors winning Game 2 by 29 points and Game 4 by 22 points.

The Raptors revved up their defence in each of those games, holding the Magic to an average of 86.6 points after they scored 104 in Game 1.

TAKEAWAYS: Game 1 | Game 2 | Game 3 | Game 4

Win a win in Game 5, the Raptors would advance to the second round for an opportunity to play either the Philadelphia 76ers or Brooklyn Nets. The 76ers currently lead the series 3-1, with Game 5 to be played in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

The Raptors won three of their four matchups with both the 76ers and Nets during the regular season.

The earliest the second round of the playoffs will begin is Saturday, April 27.
