Eh. Dunno about that.

Vasquez has been playing great lately and then there's Davis and Anderson.

Everyone seems to drop career-highs against us lol.

I say it'll be a good, close game but we come out with the W

We will be blown out, this is a streaky team, so as the euphoric about our 5 wins has gone, we will make a L streak:
Raptors 89- Hornets 112

If we get blown out by the Hornets I might just give up on this team and jump on the Clippers bandwagon lol

If Lowry actually comes back this is a gettable bounce back win. We need to start getting some momentum on the road; we shouldn't have the kind of disparity we do between home and road records.

It's gettable with or without him to be honest. NO is pretty bad.

Its probably the same every team in the league says about the Raptors atm. Even NO will have this moment: "If we are not able to win against the Craptors at home....".

We are one of the few guaranteeds wins

Just watched a DC video Toronto Raptors team home site. He makes it perfectly clear that Jose Calderon is his starter and the Kyle Kowry will be coming off the bench. He mentions its a team decision and the organization is in favour. They have sat down wil Kyle Lowry and explained to him that its a team game. Unsure how many minutes Lowry will get ....we are on a first of a back to back...if Kyle plays well expect to see him play at least 18-22 minutes tonight. Emphasis was on d and his offence....Kyle has been a liability on d ....they talked about him gambling and not playing team d and they reviewed the team sets that Kyle tends to over ride to play his own game.
Should be a good game ...a controlled game by Lowry in limited minutes should take us over the top.....Lowry > Lucas so we should be good tonite.

Hornets have lost 5 straight home games and averaged 84 points in those losses.

This might be one of those games where the Raps bench plays better than the starters.

Could be a nail-biter.

I thought this was an interesting quote from Casey. You know your talent is spread pretty thin when the coach is saying stuff like this:

Quote:
We have to play as a desperate team. If we don’t play desperate and play hungry, like somebody’s trying to take something from us, we can’t survive.

If Nola plays inside out it is going to be tough for the raps. Sideshow lopez has been playing pretty well and AD will be looking to get beck in the ROY race. I don't think we win this with out either Bargs and/or JV in the rotation (just for the extra fouls).

When we won 5 straight the bench out played our starters quite often to ne honest. I think they averaged around 50ppg and were often better defensively. Calderon, Derozan is an awful defensive combination in the back court on D. We're far better when Ross is on the floor with Anderson and Amir and at times Davis.
