I'm prepared for this game to be over by halftime.

One interesting tidbit though.... apparently Pau isn't thrilled with the idea of coming of the bench. I honestly think his days in LALA Land are numbered.

this trade deadline should be interesting, not too excited for this game.

I think the Raptors will win this game. 1PM start (10am in LA), the Lakers are 5-12 on the road, and they have not been playing well all season. Don't make it seem like the Lakers are 20 games over .500. Over by half time? Please.

The Lakers team that has played the last 3 games has been a VERY different one than the one that's been floundering around all season.

If they do the same thing they've been doing... pounding the ball inside to D12 and using Kobe more on D... I'd expect it get pretty ugly fast.

Imagine if Kobe guards Jose right off the bat and MWP is on Derozan?

We may not be able to get the ball over halfcourt.

LA will be screwed. Kobe is nowadays concentrating only on defense. But once he learns there is no one worthwhile defending in Raps he will be lost and go 7-30. Dwight could easily get our two servicable picks into foul trouble or dunk 80 points if they decide not to foul (which would be very Raps like), but he wont get the ball as Kobe is chucking as no one is defending him (well DD is, but that doesnt count as defense). And Nash will decide to give us a win as apology for fleecing us to make that Fields contract. Gasol is so irritated of coming of the bench he will just give the ball to Jose every time he touches it (Jose with 10 steals in the game) until he is benched.

Raps win 66-63 (I dont think we are able to score more on them)

Dwight is the problem, Davis and Amir have struggled with dominate centers in the past. If we can stop him, and Kobe doesn't decide to kill us, we should have a chance.

We won't stop him, he's freaking huge. And why wouldn't Kobe want to kill us, they aren't even in the playoff picture right now lol

we can't stop any superstars and this team is stacked with them
dwight will have a field day in the paint especially with only amir and ed to really defend and if they get into foul trouble we'll be in even bigger trouble
kobe is kobe and will be able to get any shot he wants against this team
metta world peace is going to completely shut down demar if demar doesn't already shut himself down with his recent poor offense and always lack of defense
and with the 2 big stars giving the Raptors fits its just going to make it even easier for nash to do whatever he wants
i say this game is a blowout, let ross play 48 minutes

actually a ross/DD combo to start wouldn't be such a bad idea, with DD guarding artest. fields can be put on artest sometimes too, but who else could guard kobe on our team..? sadly enough, noone. maybe kyle, but he gives up too much height and will have his hands full with the pnr of nash and dwight

In the early going either us or them will start off hot but in the 4th quarter it will be a close game.

how desperate will JV be to play tonight against D12, considering that he already started training with the team

No way we win this one, we are in a slump and we have too many injured players to compete against Lakers.

Lol @ people thinking we have a chance.


Although, there is very, very small false hope just cause I'm a Raptors fan.
