Prediction

- 95
- 100

Likely the hottest team in the NBA right in Portland who have won 17 of their last 18 games, which likely means we're going to have our hands full no matter how bad their road record is. So, we're gonna have to be up for this game, because if not we'll find ourselves on the losing end again against these young tough Blazers.

Predict and discuss!

We shoulda had the last game! Roy was amazing, but we sat Jose and Bosh 2 minutes too long and the momentum swung in Portland's favor and we never recovered.

I say its a winnable game for us as long as the substitutions are managed properly this time and Bosh plays like he did in NY...

Raps - 105
Portland - 102

Yahoo Preview is up and available fellas.

BTW, Roy and Blake are game time decisions. Roy still having issues with his knee injury from the other night and apparently Blake still bothered by a nagging calf injury.

Roy's expected to play today, but Blake still might be a no go.

bosh is not hot, he's still shooting very poorly. Luckily for us, he is agressive and attacking - which leads to tons of free throws and easy dunks/layups. So the hope should be for Bosh to attack and not settle for jumpshots. Bargnani's play is not that important against them, where they killed us last time was 2/3, outlaw and roy especially. So the play of AP, Moon and Delfino will be crucial tonight.

I still remember how they killed us last season at home, in the first game without Bosh - and things never looked as bad as after that Portland and the next Miami game - it was the low point of 2006/2007 ... So I want REVENGE today - let's blow them by 40!

Call me crazy milk, but I'd rather him be aggressive and drive to the hoop. It's far more effective then settling for the mid-range jumper. Gets ya to the foul line more often and also gets the opposing team in foul trouble.

Drive away Chris and don't change a single thing for today's game.

Yeah, but why on earth did he reach in during that first foul? Was he afraid that Joel was going to shoot a three?

Anyhow, hopefully Jose will pull his head out of his arse because he's playing horrible right now was two awful turnovers. :mad:

AP with the hot hand too. Keep'em coming Parker.
