Prediction

- 100
- 109




I expect big games from Andrea and Bosh, but even bigger games from Granger (who's been setting the league on fire as of late) and Dunleavy. Raps lose Friday night to Indiana.

Predict and discuss guys.

Granger one of my favorite players will have a big game

Of course I want the Raps to win tough

Will Calderon and O'Neal play any time soon?

Doesn't sound as though. My guess is that they'll both be out at least a minimum of another week. No confirmation of that .... just a hunch.

Hello. I didn't realise that Baston was in Indiana. Must have been sleeping when that happened.

Sadly, I don't think the Raps are going to win this one - but I will be cheering them on for sure!

We will lose. I have Granger on my fantasy team and he has been ripping teams in half by himself. 40 point nights and he had like 5 straight 30 point nights

I'm scared JO will play and will try to "show up" the Pacers by shooting some of his patented fadeaway jumpers.

Yeah, I can't remember where I read it last night but apparently its less likely that Jermaine will suit up for tonight's game.

Granger is something like 4th in the league in scoring, yet is still almost a no-name amongst casual fans, and gets almost no publicity. I hope our coaches and players are cognizant of him, or it could be a long night.

I think its only because of where he plays and that his team still stinks. Had he been in a larger market or if the Pacers where doing better then we'd hear more of him.

Solomon is a horrible pg, there is absolutely no reason Roko Ukic doesn't deserve to start this game. He a better decision maker, and doesnt shoot as much as kobe (unlike solomon). He does not deserve/and should never start. Ever. He'd make a better power forward than a pg. :P .. wat a joke. Makes me question Jay's coaching. Experience only counts for so much. When a guy is THAT bad, it means nothing. And who ever disagrees flat out does not know much about basketball. And dont tell me he killed it in Europe, or that he had a couple good games this season. The fact is, most games he looked out of place (NBDL) and lacks most characteristics of an NBA point guard. he's a back up shooting guard on a horrible nba team at best. (single handedly lost the Bucks game for them.)
