Well, this first game between these two teams since Horford's foul on T.J. back on the 11th of December. I expect a little more incentive for us to win this one. Win it for T.J. boys. :D

Predict and discuss!

'trane 01-17-2008 01:48 PM

These are the gams where I wish we still had Oakley. You know Horford would have spent the whole game looking over his shoulder being abused and trashtalked by Oak. Garbo was a bit like that too, but without the reputation. We could really use a guy like that.

Acie 01-17-2008 02:01 PM

Rasho will get him if he has the chance. ;)

LX 01-17-2008 02:50 PM

I'll be there. And I'll be pissed that I won't be seeing any TJ.

I desperately need to see a live win or it will too obvious that I'm a jinx. The only win I've seen is the one without both Bosh and Lebron - hardly a game to get greatly excited about.

Kuzzy 01-17-2008 04:28 PM

ahaha cant wait to see the rookie get BooeD :D.

Torontosaurus 01-18-2008 09:29 AM

Hopefully we can string a few wins together. This would be a fun game to watch if I wasn't working :mad:, but this is a game we should win.

Hey LX sorry about your luck about missing TJ. You get to see a young point guard named Jose Calderon play in his place, watch him and Bosh lead the rapts. When your there tonight take a look around and see how many Calderon jerseys are in the stands.

Hey guys, Jay's "RaptorsForum" preview is currently available as is the Yahoo preview. :D

Claudius 01-18-2008 10:31 AM

This is a statement game for us. This team cost us Ford and they're in the hunt for the playoffs. I see a blow out coming.

We can only hope so CG .... I don't want to get my hopes up though. As much as I predicted a 10 point win for us, I think this will be a very close affair.

Sick, Wicked and Nasty! 01-18-2008 11:06 AM

We never struggle too much against the Hawks... much like PHilly they really dont' have an answer for Bosh...and the way he's been playing of late, barring a total no-show by the rest of the team this is a very winnable game for us. It would be nice to get both before heading to Boston that's for certain.

raptor123 01-18-2008 12:13 PM

We better not take the hawks lightly tonight. Coming off a solid game on Wednesday goes for not if we stink it up tonight.Every game is a winable game as long as you compete and work your ass off. We must continue to establish our inside game early with bosh and Jose must continue to keep the hawks honest with his shooting. These 2 guys set the stage early and the rest of the team will get their looks. Getting to the line is key making them count is a priority. The hawks get to the line alot more then the rapts.
Bargs must continue to work and play tough. I sometimes wonder if all this weight training in the off season is the reason why he is struggling with his shot.His mechanics are very good however that feel in the delivery might be what is missing. I find too often this year that he is way too strong on his shots.
The rapts play their game they win by 10 and win their 5th in 6 games.

Thug 01-18-2008 07:17 PM

After a quick 6-0 start by the Raptors, the Hawks call a quick timeout at the 10:21 mark of the first quarter. The Hawks need to wake up. The 3 shots made by the Raptors have been a dunk by Bosh, a dunk by Parker, and a open J by Moon.

'trane 01-18-2008 07:19 PM

playing good team D right now, but on the offensive side, Bosh's gotta start taking it to the rack...

'drea doing a good job so far.

'trane 01-18-2008 07:21 PM

asked and answered. Bosh to the rack twice.

'trane 01-18-2008 07:36 PM

16 for JSmoove in the first Q. Yikes.

Thug 01-18-2008 07:40 PM

22-27 at the end of a well-played first quarter. Raptors are the team with the lead right now and they deserve this lead as we have played pretty well. Chris Bosh with 11 points and the Raptors as a team have a good shooting percentage at around 61%. The Hawks percentage has gotten down to 42%. Josh Smith with an exceptional first quarter and 16 points.

Dr. J. Naismith 01-18-2008 08:16 PM

WOW ... what the fuck was that from Anthony Johnson on Jose? That's brutal. :mad:

Sam better get the boys riled up and use that as incentive to beat these guys during the 2nd half. Absolutely no need for that shit.

Anyhow, not too bad of a game but we gotta stop giving teams 2nd chances as well cut down on turnovers too. As soon as our 3 start dropping we should be able to pull away from them. ;)

Acie 01-18-2008 08:26 PM

Hear hear - we've got to show some balls. That shit is not acceptable even once, but now twice. They better bury the Hawks at the start of the 3rd.

Yup, I wanna see Humps get a little dirty out there and throw some elbows of his own. We still need a little payback for our boy TJ. :D

Nothing too obvious, but to send a subtle message to these guys. :mad:
