We gotta blowout some team sooner or later, so why not one of the league's worst in Minnesota. ;)

Predict and discuss!

Ball Don't Lie 02-26-2008 04:06 PM

Could be a letdown game, but we'll still win. Bargs should continue his streak of good games every other game. 22 8 and 4.

A let down game?????

Thriller, if last night wasn't a let down and a wake up call, I dunno what is for this so called "contender".

Ball Don't Lie 02-26-2008 04:40 PM

A letdown game is the NY game where we had good rest and we dont play up to our potential and LOSE.

I think most expected it to be a close game last night with it being a back to back and Indy being a very good 3 pt shooting team, the kind of team we tend to struggle against with our bad perimeter D.

Superjudge 02-26-2008 05:14 PM

Toronto lacks a killer instinct in general.

Look at who they have beat this year.

Look at who they have lost to.


Talk about a contrast!!!

Belsius 02-26-2008 06:13 PM

I think what shows that a team is good, is when its capable of playing badly and still win. Thats what we finally did yesterday, thats part of being big.

Jay's RF Raptors Preview is now available as well the Yahoo one fellas. Be sure to check out Jay's preview for tonight's match-up on the main page or click the logo in the original post in this thread. :dance:

Superjudge 02-27-2008 11:28 AM

any team can win any night.

westbeach 02-27-2008 12:37 PM

Aside from Monday's game, Toronto's margin of victory in February has been 19.5 pts. If they win, they're gonna win big considering Minnesota played last night and 3rd game in 4 nights. They'll win by 20+ points....if they win.

Superjudge 02-27-2008 01:07 PM

i hope they win by 40

moremilk 02-27-2008 02:24 PM

I think we will be extremely tired, it's the 4th game in 6 days. On the other hand, most of our shooters had off nights in Indiana, so they should bounce back. They're also horrible on the road, and we're playing well at home lately - we should win this one ...

Belsius 02-27-2008 02:25 PM

I think we have 24 games in 36 days, so we better be prepared

westbeach 02-27-2008 02:30 PM

of which, we'll go 17-7. :)

Superjudge 02-27-2008 02:44 PM

just get the Judge 50+ so I can brag.

Torontosaurus 02-27-2008 04:52 PM

Not looking too far ahead, but I would say the next 5 games are games we SHOULD win, and I expect them to.

Superjudge 02-27-2008 05:53 PM
