We'll see if we're going to win in the 1st qtr in how we come out matchup wise and energy wise. If we're the aggressor early on, even if we're not up early, I think we'll win the game. Hopefully we'll come out with a better gameplan on how to get Bosh touches where ORL cant sag on him so easily, and have a quicker starting lineup. If Bargs starts again I'm gonna puke.

I think the starting line up should be Bosh, Rasho, Moon, kapono, and Jose, we need to show intensity, and as far as I know the only game that we won this year against Orlando it was when Tj wasn't around, Bosh said clearly "we should be playing defense like we aren't going to get any help", tell that to Tj, our defense was horrendous, beside that we need to show leadership and Jose is more than capable to do it, he get everybody involved(look the ball movement when he used to be the starting pg setting the tone of the game, now take a look the stats for Tj, he managed in 8 minutes and 11 seconds, to take the team 15points down, he was 1of 5 in fga, and 0 assist that's a nice way of how to tone the game, and for the record he was substitute one and half minute too early, not the usual 2 and change minute before the end of the first quarter) and when you play this type of games keeping the tempo is the key to winning or staying close on the game(Why Spain is the world champion), in regards of Andrea once again the only time on the season where he was playing decently was when Tj wasn't around, Smitch if you are reading this and you want to keep your job, get this line-up, if you are not putting Jose as a starting line-up definitively you are playing with them rather than against.

Speaking of the starting lineup, other than Sunday's game, when was the last time Sam changed it up?

It all starts in the middle.

If Toronto can establish anything aggressive in the paint, they have a fighting chance, if not..... well it will be a very boring and very easy win for the Magic.

And oh yes, Earth to Toronto Guards, hits an open Jumper.

I'd give Hump some minutes.

Despite being a little shot happy out there at times, he at least plays like he's hungry and brings some intensity.

Alrighty .... who's ready for tonight? Is the enthusiasm still here or did losing the first game take the excitement out of you guys?

Thriller, why don't you get your friends on these message boards too? They seem to be into hoops and Raptorball as much as you. No?

We could use more Ottawans here.

I'm surprised there's still a few alive after the Sens losses.

Have one for me Thriller, I don't drink during the week.

I may hit the rhino for the game though!

Well here is my 2 cents on tonights game. The first 5 mins will be the tell tale sign on how we make out tonight. Mitch will have the make some decisions early based on how we are doing early on. This team has decided that what they worked on all year with regards to player rotations means squat. Mitch better make moves early to prevent us getting smoked early on. Moon better play more then 4 mins tonight !

From what I can tell, it's 19 in Canada, and 16 in Canadian hip hop and cheese ass dance clubs.

I have never understood why you are mature enough to vote when you are 18 but you arent to drink till you are 21 in the US.
