Our first big and true test since the lineup swap (not counting the Pistons game because they were gassed and didn't have Hamilton in the lineup), so let's see how we fair against one of the best teams in the NBA.

Also, this is the return of the one, the only Morris Peterson. Benzo and Mo Pete fans rejoice. :)

Predict and discuss!

Ball Don't Lie 03-29-2008 12:34 PM

I'm so happy I got tix yesterday, on ebay of all places. Some dude sold 1st row 3rd section seats on auction and they only went for 80, so sick.

I dont have faith that we'll defend the pick and roll any better than we did last time. In NO we got insanely lucky in the 3rd qtr that Peja and Mo missed about 7 WIDE open looks or they would have blown the game open. Its pick your poison, if you dont help on the pick and roll with the corner guy Paul is going to get a wide open shot off the pick, or West off the pick and pop/roll, and if you do help with a 3rd guy theyll get a wide open 3. The worst thing you can do is switch with the PG being on the big because that for sure=wide open look either way.

Its still probably the most impossible offence to stop in the NBA the way CP3 does it, lets pray Mo, Peja and Pargo miss the open looks.

And I dunno who we're gonna put on Wells, hes been the 2nd best 6th man the past 2 weeks in the NBA.

I'll be cheering for Mo. Should be a playoff type atmosphere.

Raps 102 Hornets 97, 12 game winning streak here we come.

Nice catch Thriller .... good game to catch tickets too. You driving down today or leaving tomorrow morning?

Kuzzy 03-29-2008 12:48 PM

Ford will take over.

Ball Don't Lie 03-29-2008 01:09 PM

Leaving tomorrow morning.

fho 03-29-2008 10:20 PM

Definitely another litmus test of our defense and character, especially since I'm sure we'll be down early on the game.

If we can get to the free throw line then we might have a chance of not being blown out.

Go Raps!!!

Major 03-29-2008 11:07 PM

Well Hornets are 5-5 on the road in their L10, just coming off a loss from Boston yesterday. Hope the Raps could win this one.

Dr. J. Naismith 03-30-2008 09:33 AM

Yahoo Preview is currently available guys. No sure if Jay's going to have his ready today, but check the main page of the blog just incase. :)

Belsius 03-30-2008 06:04 PM

Belsius 03-30-2008 06:08 PM

'trane 03-30-2008 06:10 PM

kapono is starting?

Thug 03-30-2008 06:18 PM

Well Mo Peterson has gotten the standing ovation that he deserves from the fans, he then ran over to midcourt- got down on the floor and kissed the Raptors logo on the hardwood before signaling to the fans that they are number 1.

Mo Pete (Raptor 4 Lyfe)

BTW, Kapono starting WTF?

Belsius 03-30-2008 06:33 PM

box score doesnt look good, 9 down, tj with 3 turnovers?. is he playing well?

Torontosaurus 03-30-2008 07:07 PM

We're hanging in there. Love this action. Rasho playing really well, doing it all

Torontosaurus 03-30-2008 07:09 PM

Bosh for the 3 baby!

fho 03-30-2008 07:17 PM

I like the unit that closed out the half.

fho 03-30-2008 07:18 PM

We need to make the shots in the 2nd half. We had a lot of open looks, we just missed them.

Superjudge 03-30-2008 07:18 PM

Toronto is getting whipped.


It ain't close.

Acie 03-30-2008 07:20 PM

Mo still can't remember where those sidelines are.

If the Raps would've just played a little D they'd be in charge of this one.
