UPDATE: Just read at RealGM that Granger's not playing tonight because he is suspended for hitting Nocioni last night.

two words: CAKE WALK.


Still though, you have to wonder if teams can mentally prepare to "battle" when on paper they are so heavily favoured.

I think Toronto will crush them, but still there is an ounce of concern as to whether some Raptors already think this game is won before tipoff.

We're the Raptors who seem to find ways to lose easy games.

Bosh or no Bosh, NO way should we lose to these scrubs

Things I like so far:
- Bargs having a decent game
- Parker playing with heart

Things I don't like so far:
- Tj dribbling into the defense and losing the ball for no apparent reason
- Marquis Daniels flying right past Moon for an uncontested layup

We need to play some serious D right now!

I used to think Moon was a great one-on-one defender, but he definitely isn't. He's with help defense, but easily exploited one-on-one unfortunately.
