The NBA restart is underway and the Toronto Raptors are beyond ready to continue the season and get ready for their seventh straight playoff appearance.

The Toronto Raptors have already clinched their playoff spot for the 2020 playoffs back during the regular season before it got paused due to COVID-19.

In the playoffs, it seems like every team has that one player who could be their teams x-factor during the playoffs, and for the Toronto Raptors, they could have more than one this year.

With that being said let’s jump into three players on the Toronto Raptors who could potentially be x-factors for them in the playoffs.

3. Terence Davis – 23 years old – SG

2019-20 stats – 64 GP – 7.7 PPG – 3.4 RPG – 1.7 APG – .463 FG% – .396 3P% – .865 FT%

At my number three spot to kick off the list of three Toronto Raptors that could be x-factors in the playoffs, I have rookie Terence Davis. What a debut rookie year for him it was. I think Davis could be an x-factor for this Toronto Raptors team, especially if they go far in the playoffs mainly because he can provide that spark off the bench and bring that energy as well if the team is missing it throughout the game.

Davis averaged a pretty good 7.7 PPG – 3.4 RPG – 1.7 APG coming off the bench and playing limited minutes this season, however when the team was hit with countless injuries he stepped up in that situation and help lead the team to victory multiple times. It felt like he was setting career highs almost every other night while getting more minutes on the floor and truly showcasing his skill and showing how much potential he has at such a young age in his rookie year.

If he can somehow get some starting minutes, which I totally doubt will happen because the Raptors starting five is pretty much the same every night he could potentially continue his tremendous play of basketball like when everyone went down with injuries. However I don’t think happen, so his role will more than likely be an important piece coming off the bench that can contribute every night. (Stats from Basketball-Reference.com)
