Prediction

- 103
- 95

Consistancy is the key for the Raptors right now and if we can play like we have in the last 3 games then I see no reason why we can't beat the Pacers on their homecourt.

Predict and discuss!

This could definately be a letdown game, but it's a game we have to win since we're going to be going on the road for the next 2 weeks after Sunday. I cant wait til the west coast road trip, definately the most exciting time for Raptors ball in the year besides the playoffs.

Indy sucks, they're a gimmick team and they dont even play the run and gun that well. Their team as a whole is awful talent wise. You know you suck when Dunleavy is starting.

Raptors 112 Pacers 100

I guess my 2nd paragraph could be a jinx, so I take it all back. Indys a playoff team and Dunleavy pwns.

I expect we'll win this game as long as we play at our pace:

Toronto - 102
Indy - 98

There's a good chance that Raptor killer himself Jeff Foster isn't playing which would help us on the boards considering he's always played well on the offensive glass for Indy, so keep those fingers and toes crossed.

This is a very winnable game the way we've been playing of late. Bosh n eeds to really step up and Delfino/Kapono hopefully will have strong games. We have to contain Tinsely too...he seems to go off on us more than i'd like. Raps by 9.

This is our game to lose... let's hope that Bargo shows up and that Jose still has gas in his tank...

Raps win by 7...

no way we have a fucking let down game. i think we go in there, play the way we're supposed to against indy and blow the doors off conseco and the ghost town. man, i was walking around indianapolis earlier this year, and there's not much going on down there, nothing. there was a kinko's and a starbucks, and a fountain. thats it. case closed.
though i missed seeing shaq by about a minute.

No he meant a triple double with blocks, steals and assists :P .

Heh, seriously, it will be a tough climb for Jose to get a triple double; he'd need to hit the boards extra hard. I'd be happy with a double double for Jose.

Carlos Delfino down after he flew into Jermaine O Neal and gets the offensive foul.
