I predict Scola will make Bosh look pathetic on both ends of the court tonight.

Snooch i agree. Bosh already made some next white guy on the Nets lok good, what's his name.....oh yea ryan Anderson. So making Scola look good will be too easy for Bosh. We lose this game, 106 to 93

Unfortunately, the Raps are going to lose this one. Although, maybe the fact that I am at the ACC cheering them on will result in a victory.

2 years back a home win against Houston was the catalyst for a great season. Hoping for more of the same and an upset win tho I dread no one can guard Yao.

ARGHHHHHHHHH fuckin TSN2 again

Umm is the below true? because we might just have a chance...

taken from Doug Smith blog:

I’m not sure how closely any of you have been following the saga of the Rockets but it’s quite interesting, actually.

Old Friend Tracy McGrady (and will you boo him tonight?) is only going to play every other game because his knee’s sore, Shane Battier (who was never going to be traded to Toronto despite the great wishes of so many of you) is back on the shelf and Ron Artest is taking games off.

WTH. I just heard about T-Mac taking back-to-back games off but I never knew about Artest and Battier. But WTH is that. I would be pissed seeing my team taking games off

I think by taking games off in Artest's case he means that he hasen't been playing well or putting up any type of numbers.

Artest has actually played really well lately.

So Tmacs going to play tonight but the SF's arent?

I hope we double Yao all night and leave Skip open.Getting Bargs in foul trouble=Voskuhlplaying= immediate loss.This is the one game I really thought we had a good chance of winning in the 3 home game stand.

Raptors have a good chance to win tonight, the Rockets take it easy on teams below .500. Artest has an ankle injury but has been playin thru it, he took over against the Jazz in O.T. the other day to win the game, hopefully he takes the night off to give the Raps a chance.
