Can anyone in the league contain Matt Bonner right now? Man is on fire and will most likely light up Jermaine tonight too.

Predict and discuss guys.

More worried about Bargs Duncan matchup... Mason gonna put the nail on the coffin again, unless Joey has a 30+ pt game...

Maybe Popavitch gonna bench the 3 stars again for fun?

Calderons worst nightmares, 2 of the smallest quickest guards in the league 2 straight games.

Id put Parker on Parker, Jose on Mason, Joey on Bonner, Bargs on Finley and JO on Duncan. That way we can switch the pick and rolls with Parker and Bonner whichll result in less then 15 3 pt shots that they hit last time against us.

DEFEND THE 3 BOYS AND GIRLS.

The Raps need to stop switching on screens so much. It constantly creates mis-matches and they end up getting burned. They've got to fight over the top and defend their own check.

Finley would beat Bargs off the dribble everytime. Bargs will be gaurding bonner.

The key to tonights game is if JO can MANAGE (not stop) Duncan in the post so we dont need to double team and get burned on the 3.

Someone has always been starting in front of Ginobili, no matter who it's been. His energy off the bench is something else - he could easily win sixth man of the year every year. It's extremely hard for teams to adapt to having someone so talented and so productive coming off the bench. He'd definitely start for 95% of NBA teams.

Its a little different if you have Jose on Parker. If Triano is dumb enough to have Jose covering TP he better be switching all screen rolls because Jose doesnt stand a chance in catching up. Once Parker gets past the screen and loses Jose, he gets in the middle and the Spurs hit 20 3's. The only way we're going to limit penetration is to switch on screen rolls tonight and hopefully back the fuck off Parker.

If it was me I'd be playing Moon on Parker the entire game because Parker has struggled at times vs the lanky SF. Truthfully its a matchup nightmare for us tonight and the only way we're going to win is if three guys score 20 and we hit a ton of 3's, which isnt going to happen vs the Spurs because they defend the 3 so well. So...Basically something unexpected has to happen.

Its so sad to see how the seasons turned out. I hate not being able to watch the Raptors in the playoffs.

We're gonna get destroyed. Bonner will have a bunch of open 3s while we won't even bother to feed JK any shots.

Any one else thinking the red rockets getting his career high tonight, could be a close one with the Spurs getting the W.
