FINAL: Toronto Raptors 85 - Indiana Pacers 90

Home opener!

Note of caution: this game has an earlier than usual 6 pm start.

Probable starters

Raptors

C- Amir Johnson
PF- Andrea Bargnani
SF- Rasual Butler
SG- DeMar DeRozan
PG- Jose Calderon

Pacers

C- Roy Hibbert
PF- David West
SF- Danny Granger
SG- Paul George
PG- Darren Collison



Don't forget about the controversy in the series last year with the end-of-the-game shots.

Granger:

Quote:
If I was on him, I would have took [Barbosa's] head off and I would have been suspended for a game for a flagrant foul. Stuff like that will sit in the back of your head the next time we play Toronto. We don't play them again but if I was on him, I would have taken his neck off.

Why? He'll still only play 10-12 minutes anyway. Besides those lineups are just guesses.

A blowout by the Pacers is the last thing I want to see.

I expect a pretty good showing for the home opener. As long as we play within ourselves and not try to do too much and play D it'll be close.

1. retarded is a word that is just as bad as any other derogatory slur. browse our thread history for my take on this, i'm not getting into it again

2. an early start has lots of reasons which you don't bother to examine.

3. it's early, not late...

I was using it very offensively, looks like it was effective.
Point made.

It's also a huge negative to a fan base that just dealt with a annoying offseason and a team that's intended to be bad.
Telling your fans "Hey, we don't care that you work till 5, have to drive home in horrible traffic, pick your kids/wife/whatever up from your house, then have to drive back through that traffic again, while missing the first 30 minutes of the game, NOT OUR FAULT BRO".
Ya, this is an excellent idea.

Late is better in almost ever case.
You'll never have a 9:30pm EST Raptors home game, not going to happen.
Why not just make all Raptors games at 2:30pm, it's early, not late.
