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 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.

Toronto lacks a killer instinct in general.

Look at who they have beat this year.

Look at who they have lost to.

Ouch.

Talk about a contrast!!!

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.

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.

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 ...

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