Prediction

- 94
- 102




We'll be in tough yet again. I assume likely no Calderon as well Jermaine. Parker has to do a better job right off the bat in shutting down Allen, because if he doesn't then its going to get ugly very fast.

Predict and discuss guys.

I smell a loss unless the Raps can continue with the momentum they had in the fourth

Hopefully the Raps put a bigger body on Rondo to stop his pentration and make him shot jumpers

If Calderon is playing we'll loose. If he isn't I'm smelling a victory.

My gosh - again, the opposite of win is spelled L-O-S-E.

Unfortunately, it's going to be a loss - you fellows will have to let me know what happens as I will be watching Jeopardy and 24 instead.

Raps start of strong with a decent leave (approx. 10+) but quickly deteriorate in the second half when the crowd starts getting into it.

Raps lose, 103 - 89

We are the cure for any team's struggles

I don't care if we're "supposed to" win games like this or not. With the Bucks easy schedule the rest of the season, we need to win some of the games we aren't "supposed to win", as well as win the games we are "supposed to win" if we want to make the playoffs. That's just the way things are with the hole we've dug ourselves.

If they can't come up with a better effort then that at home they're toast on the road.
The Celtics intimidate the hell out of the Raps.

Raps will have to be about perfect to win.

BUt I expect a big game from Bargs and I smell him getting into it with Garnett resulting in a double tech.

Bargs 28pts 10rbd 4as 2blk 1stl

Actually as far as I know it is just me although Scott may chime in with the odd word of wisdom. But it is just me. You are all welcome to pop in and say hello. I try to have a bit of pre half and post style chat that you are all welcome to be a part of.

Thanks for the Support Doc and all you folks here at Raptors Forum.

I'm no good at predictions, but for some reason, I am smelling a Celtic absolute blow out in the first quarter.

I mean the kind where PP and KG are on the bench acting like douchebags by the beginning of the 4th quarter!
