Fair enough but in the NBA nothing is ever an easy win. So I agree with you in regards to Jeff but the way the raps are playing right now, if they'd done so for most of the season we would be above .500 right now. Given how close most of our losses have been it's not hard to fathom. Maybe far better than Orlando is too much but the way we're playing? We're better

Side note, what are you doing up so late?

Hilarious to see fans of a team that was 4-19 just days ago talking about .500 teams as if they're hot garbage.

We've beaten some mediocre teams this week. None of them are above .500.

All teams lose some close games during the season, so you can't expect to win them all. I think we've used that as a bit of an excuse. However, I do definitely think that, if we had better luck, we could have won an extra 3 or 4 games. But that would just put us at 10-16 or 11-15. We still wouldn't really be in a position to say we are clear cut better than Orlando.

We might be better than Orlando talent wise (still debatable) but Orlando is well coached and has some players who fit their roles well. So they are, arguably, a better ball team. Afflalo, Big Baby, Vucevic have all stepped up, and J.J Reddick looks like a 6th man of the year candidate right now.

Rap's fans hate it when the fans of other teams underestimate us and seem clueless about our team. Well, assuming we will walk over Orlando is ignorant of what is going on in the league right now.

I hope we beat Orlando. I think we can do it at home. But I would hesitate to talk shit about them, like we're better. It makes no sense. We're not in a position to do that.

I remember Bargnani went off last time in the 1st quarter for 17. This should be a good game to watch. There's just too many shit teams in the league right now that it's not worth tanking given our pick has already been traded. Let's make it 4 and try to make that pick worse for OKC.

The Rap Up: Raptors VS Pistons Pre-Game

My Pre-Game blog

A good stretch for us. Our next five or six, only one is a loss on paper(Spurs). We could see a nice 8-2, 9-1, in the ten games including our past three.

2 point guard lineups are good to change the game in spurts maybe once or twice a game, but never to close out a game unless the lineup is on fire of course.

After three wins, this is sure to be a let down game. No way we win it.

Despite, I will ruin my tomorrow and watch it live as Im pumped after watching the third victory in row.

It's nice to be winning and all, but there is no way we can even think about .500 since we haven't beat a team that's in potential .500 at the end of season. Wanna be one, beat one, as they say

Oh did I remember to mention AA will go 0-4 from down town and end up with 2 points, Amir will suck in general and Jose will just stand around and not make any positive impact.

DD will go for 15 points with 20 shots and Ed Davis will get injured. John Lucas will try to be the hero and will end up with 2-9 shooting and 5 turnovers.

Gray will get some PT after JVal gets fouls faster than Amir in his rookie season.

And Landry Fields will play, but will not get any positive marks on score board.
