YAHOO GAME PREVIEW

Prediction

http://www.ebsports.net/bbs/sficons/...raptors_sm.gif - 98
http://www.ezekielbearsports.com/bbs/nba/bobcats.gif - 88

Considering how poorly the Bobcats have played, I think this is a must win for the Raps. I also expect Sam to give Bosh the night off again too to better prepare him for the tough schedule ahead. :(

Predict and discuss!

Acie 12-03-2007 09:55 AM

Raps - 97
Kitties - 85

Ya, after an awesome start to the season, the 'Cats are slumping big time right now. :(

Considering the very tough schedule we have for the month of December, this is a must win in my opinion. :mad:

Claudius 12-03-2007 10:46 AM

Hmmm....I say we lose :(

Bobacats - 97
Raptors - 93

It just seems like one of those games we lose.

Benzo 12-03-2007 11:08 AM

No Bosh
+
No Bargs= More Hump

We lose.

Plus I have a huge man crush on Walter Herrmann

Dr. J. Naismith 12-03-2007 11:08 AM

Alright fellas, the game thread is officially done for today's match-up. The Yahoo preview is available for those who care and if any of you see any mistakes, please don't hesitate to let me know. Cheers!

No Bargs? What's the deal with him now? :(

Benzo 12-03-2007 11:09 AM

According to the fan both are no-gos tonight...

...so unless Delfino grows 1 foot we are in trouble.

Besides you wanting to get in Walter's shorts, what's the deal with this guy this season? He was outstanding during the second half of the season last year, and now barely sees any court time. :confused:

I think when they brought in Richardson Hermann basically lost any potential long term PT. Also, I think he was one of Bickerstaff's favourites cause he hustled hard and played with some passion, something they lacked for a while.

Dr. J. Naismith 12-03-2007 11:34 AM

It's a shame because from what I saw last year, he was awesome around the basketball both on offense and defense and I would of preferred him to Humphries. :(

Not to mention he'd bring more international flavour. :D

Belsius 12-03-2007 01:54 PM

We are taking this game. Calderon and kapono are going to be huge.
110 -95

bjjs 12-03-2007 02:26 PM

If Bargs is out, I think we should start Joey at the 4 spot.
But it will most likely be Maceo.

Raps lose! Raps lose!

95
93

INSIDER 12-03-2007 02:30 PM

i dunno what it is, i just have a bad feeling about this game.
that feeling is Quadrupled if bosh and bargs are out.

we cant hang with athletic clubs.
bobcats will run all night... felton, Jrich, wallace, okafor... they get up and down the floor with the best of em.
this looks tough.

hopefully my man delfino comes out gunning.
i expect him and kapono to go off tonight... parker too.

Ya... Joey has shown that he definately can help at PF when we're in a pinch. At least last year he could. This year he's shown us shit all. WTF happened to him this summer? He hasen't done anything yet. This dissapearing act is getting real old.

Anyways, can't say i'm too optimistic about this one.

the Fancy jury is out. no predictions.

Dr. J. Naismith 12-03-2007 06:37 PM

So, what's the deal guys ... any word of Bargnani for tonight?

This could get ugly

Quote:

As we're wandering out of shootaround just now, after Sam tells us that Chris Bosh won't play, Andrea Bargnani won't play and there's a very good chance T.J. Ford won't play either, we're trying to figure out just who might score some points for the Raptors against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Dr. J. Naismith 12-03-2007 06:54 PM

Noooooo .... let's go bench. :(

Thanks Rapsfan!

rapsfan087 12-03-2007 06:56 PM

Raptors: 108
Bobcats: 93

Moon is gonna be the man under the boards.
