Prediction

Even with Bosh playing this game, we're still gonna get torched by the Suns. I'm glad I'm likely going to be drunk tonight. It'll help ease the pain.

Predict and discuss!

I find this image of Kapono rather disturbing for some reason, he resembles some kind of axe-murderer who never passes up a kill, err shot.

I find this image even more disturbing than your axe murderer, as he resembles a jumpshooting pansy who wont defend anyone or lead our team even though he's our alleged 'leader'

Well if the suns have started celebrating christmas early we just might have a chance. The following will have to happen if we win tonight, Bosh will have to score 20 plus points and get 10 plus rebounds, Calderon will have to score 15 plus points and 15 plus assists, Kapano will have to score 15 plus points and delfino will have to score 15 plus points.They have to keep the suns scoring to under 95 points. They will have to feed nash and stods alot of egg nog in the pre game warm up.

I guess if we go Tony Harding on Nash before the game that's possible, besides that we have a better chance to win 60 games this year than holding the Suns under 100 the way we're playing.

Since even Raps feel that this game is a loss... Sam is inserting Bargo back in the starting lineup... I guess he feels there is nothing for them to lose...

BTW... there are rumblings that TJ might retire...

Great 1st half, but not surprised with the display in the 2nd half.

Kudos to Bosh .... pansy or not, he played one helluva game and surprisingly impressive in the post and especially when driving to the hoop drawing numerous fouls. Other than him, everyone else was non-existant. Jose's fuckin' gassed and must be looking forward to the Xmas break. Oh ya ..... and Bargnani is still fuckin' shit. It's bullshit that Sam is benching Rasho now. :mad:

Yay!

I got to watch the game on a 6" monitor, on the back of the seat in front of me. Not a great second half, but a good way to kill some time on a five hour flight.
