Prediction

- 91
- 109




I'm going to assume at a minimum JO will be out for tomorrow afternoon's rematch against the Celts. That being said I don't see tomorrow ending with a favorable outcome unfortunately.

Predict and discuss guys.

Ya, this is a guaranteed loss. But then you never know with us....we lose to a shit team and then play great against good ones

I was upset about last night....but after the game finished i got the most amazing ever so im good to go.

I suggest all you ladies and gents let the stress out and start a new!

It wil probably be a blow out, not because we are playing that bad. But yesterdays loss was a pretty bad blow to our confidence. And no JO doesnt help.

Lets stay positive though. After Boston we will get on a winning streak!!

This game will depend on the Solo man, Kapono, Hump, Moon. If our bench doesn't play great, we lose.

If our team cant come out pumped up after this loss to NJ + the ugly ugly loss and disrespect we recieved in Boston, well i lose all hope for us, we have to at least keep it close and make a statement at some point physically, and i believe we will, Raptors win by 2.

I'm very afraid for this game - in all honesty. I think our players patience is spread very thin right now. Think about it, after losing so many tough games in the past 2 weeks, it's only human to try to blame somebody else for this. And the obvious target for players is the coach. Even assuming they are not right, you have to believe that Bosh & Co were just as angry as we were after that game.

If we get humiliated by the Celtics in another "pride" game (very likely without JO, a very tired team with no backup at C and PG), something will have to give. And I'm afraid we will see some angry comments after tomorrow's game.

Boston has 3 hall of famers. We have Bosh and jose. Bosh has a tough time against garnett. Barny seems to not play well against boston (foul trouble). If our bench plays like they have played lately, for sure a loss. Boston by 15

Bargs hasn't played well against anyone until lately, so here's hoping he continues his string of 20+ points per game with rebounds to boot.

Even if our teams doing shitty, I'm still hoping Andrea will continue to develop.

I'm always perplexed why people like to assume they know what the team morale is like or what goes on behind close doors when there's no possible way to know unless your either part of the team or behind said closed doors.

Sure he has.

Notice this, he's starting to get the calls a little.

this will be huge for him.

I think we'll be seeing a repeat of the previous celtics vs. raps game. Maybe minus the good head start though.

Let's see if the raps learned anything from their previous game against them and try to shut out pierce near the end. It'll be hard to contain the big 3 without JO though. *Goes to research on the status of his injury*

Really interested to see what Sam does with the 3 tomorrow... IMO Bargs has to play center and guard KG, so at the 3 we should have Moon or Kapono. If I see another Kaps 30 minute game and like 12 for Moon while Pierce goes for 30... I won't be too pleased.

I am not gonna predict because when I do they lose so I won't predict anymore.
But...
Bench has to have a good game
CB4 has to have lik 40 points just to keep it close
Caldy has to abuse Rondo
Bargs has to well in the absence of JO

Well the game comes on at 9:30am on the west coast and I am not going to watch. Who wants to start their day off frustrated. NOT ME!

I am too emotionally attached to the Craptors. They are like being in a relationship with someone you love. Sometimes you love her... sometimes you don't. As of right now, I AM NOT TALKING TO HER! I AM MAD AT HER!

Yeah, well we had TJ, Rasho and Delfino last year. Without J.O. this team plays shitty defense. If J.O. is not playing and I don't think he will no way Raptors win tommorrow, probably a blow-out for Boston.
