Ok, we're not losing to the Sixers at home man. We've been struggling but not that bad, and they dont have any killers on their team like our last 2 opponents did.

Anyways, I'm glad its on WED and not today, now I can watch the continued seasons(finally) of criminal minds and svu back to back.

Doc - put down that glass of pesimism-ade.

I see this game as just what the doctor ordered. The boys will be playing desperate. Now way they will even think about a possible loss to Philly.

I only wish this game was tonight so i can get the bad Cleveland taste out of my mouth.

Yeah, doc you have been really pessimist lately, the worst thing is you have been right too, lol. Well, we need this win badly, so I think the team is going to play extremely hard.
110 - 90, Bosh Kapono and Delfino with big games. At least thats what I hope

We lose bad, and the downward spiral begins. We lose the next 4 games and fall out of playoff contention by the end of this month, proving last seasons success was a complete fluke. Good day to y'all and pray that we end up with the #1 pick next year.

Naw, no way we lose.
-I would've predicted we lose to Detroit.
-Hard to stop Lebron when he's playing like that- Detroit couldn't even do it last year when it mattered.

We've beaten this team before. Call me an optimist if you want but I say we win this one and start getting our shit together

Alright, missed the first half and see that we're barely beating them. Besides this Joey dunk that I hear was awesome, what did I miss? Who's playing well on offense and defense for us?

defense, nobody really, but moon got 4 blocks and delfino is doing pretty well. In offense, delfino too is making some points, parker is 4 for 4, 11 points, Bosh has sit all the second and part of the first because of foul trouble. Dixon is pretty bad, sam sat him. Joey is not bad, but the guy is brainles.

What about my favourite punching bag Andrea Bargnani, Belsius?

ugh. very frustrating first half. turnovers and shitty defense and rebounding are costing us.

Andrea is seriously allergic to rebounds. Even when he has positional advantage - he gets outworked by a Philly player. WTF.

Good to have Delfino and Parker back. Hopefully the second half is better.

he sat all the second I think, in the first, not horrible but not good. We got out rebounded 7 - 0 on offenseive rebounds in the first.
