Prediction

- 96
- 93

Well, the Bucks are down and out right now so we better take advantage of them. But, nothing like a big let down after beating the best team in the Eastern Conference last night. Leave it up to us to find a way to lose though.

Anyhow, I'll be overly optimistic for this one and way we squeak out a close one against the Bucks tomorrow night. :2gunsfiring:

Predict and discuss!

Other than Ray Allen's pic in the shooting guard slot..nice writeup

Definitely a winnable game for the Raps...dont' let Redd go off and with Mason not in the lineup going 10for11 this time we shoudl be okay.

If the Bucks are going to have Ray Allen back, then we'll be in tough... especially as he will want to avenge the loss we just gave his other team.

Other than that, i think this is pretty much a must win game. I don't think you're being "overly" optimistic in your prediction, doc. It's pretty safe actually.

Raps must take this one.

Bogut was fantastic the other night against Phoenix. We'll need some solid Rasho and Hump to bang him around and get him out of his rhythm. Should be a good game.

He's actually been on fire as of late 'trane, so I'm a little concerned on what he'll do against Bargnani. If Bogut takes advantage of Andrea early, look for Rasho to get a little more burn than usual. :mad:

Bogut was like a runaway train that time they beat us. He's very broad and hard to stop from getting the best position. We should have Rasho or Bosh guarding him and put Bargnani on Yi. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it Mason who couldn't miss a shot last time and had a perfect shooting night? Glad he'll be out

no - he torched Kapono, now we have Moon - no way he would repeat that performance ... However, I'm afraid of Bogut, he's playing really well lately and I'm not sure if we can stop it, not unless we play Rasho big minutes.

im not sure what to predict. is it me or do some of the bucks players that dont normally go off, go off against us? i share the concern with bogus, he is ablaze of late. i smell a let down game. if we can win this beast, then i think we may be a few games away from turning the corner.
raps 100
bucks 100
im on the fence.

People people, we dont need to stop Bogut, Redd does a good job of that by himself. He isnt gonna get the ball enough to hurt us, the only way it happens is if Bosh doesnt box his ugly Australian ass out. Bosh will be on Bogut tonight just like last time.
