http://www.ezekielbearsports.com/bbs/nba/nuggets.gif - 123

Bring on yet another loss fellas. :crying:

Predict and discuss!

Raptorman 03-13-2008 02:01 PM

I have the Raps taking this one. We have TJ, but the Nugs have 2 TJ's.

Raps 115 Nugs 109

The MVP of West Hollywood 03-13-2008 02:03 PM

I say we lose by 7 or 8. We were competitive against Lakers and GS, Denver is worse, so...

I finally calmed down and found the silver lining of the TJ thing... It might be a stroke of luck that he's "finding his balance" on the West Coast trip, I mean we probably weren't going to beat LA and GS without Bosh anyways. Can you imagine if he did this against like the TWolves and we lose? Someone would cut off his head!

RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 03-13-2008 02:48 PM

Denver 106
Toronto 96

Bargs 25points

Kuzzy 03-13-2008 05:19 PM

Denver will rip us apart.
There desperate for a playoff spot, AI and Melo will go offff
and who the hells going to guard them?
rookie moon?

This games all up to AB
because theres no way our guards will out play AI and Melo

Dr. J. Naismith 03-14-2008 09:45 AM

Yahoo Preview is up and available but unfortunately no preview from Jay. :(

INSIDER 03-14-2008 10:58 AM

nugs:
AI will run around us, hit jumpers, flop, get all the foul calls, whine to the refs... end up with 30+ points.
carmelo will go for 25/10.
camby will grab 18 rebs
martin will make one dunk and yell like he is some kind of superstar, then do absolutely nothing else for the rest of the game.
carter will just pass the ball to AI all night long and do nothing else.
kleiza will outscore our bench by himself.

raps:
bargs will get 2 rebounds all game.
rasho will go for a 10/10 game
parker will score over 20 and be our star
TJ will try to be our star and try to take AI one on one for about 8 possessions (and fail....miserably).
jose will get 2nd string minutes again.
moon will get eaten alive by carmelo.... and just smile the whole time.

we lose 117-98

'trane 03-14-2008 11:39 AM

beat down.

Belsius 03-14-2008 09:12 PM

Go Raps!!!

Dr. J. Naismith 03-14-2008 09:16 PM

Alright, I'm heading downstairs to catch the game. See you guys after the game. :)

Belsius 03-14-2008 09:22 PM

wow that was some crazy shot by Iverson.

Belsius 03-14-2008 09:34 PM

WTH is graham playing before Brezec?

The MVP of West Hollywood 03-14-2008 09:37 PM

I guess they didn't get the memo about defense. Camby's 3 :haha: :haha: :haha:

Krazy Ivan 03-14-2008 09:39 PM

Disgrace... :sigh:

44 points for Denver in 1st quarter... Camby hits a 3 point shot... are you kidding me? Camby?

Acie 03-14-2008 09:39 PM

The Raps are a joke. I've seen more effort and smarts on defense by my girlfriend's preschoolers when I play basketball with them.

Belsius 03-14-2008 09:39 PM

Magnifique!!!:frustrated:

Record for points in the first this season for the nuggets

'trane 03-14-2008 09:46 PM

just got home to find 51-31. sweet game.

Belsius 03-14-2008 09:47 PM

we are really playing like a completely disrpted team.

'trane 03-14-2008 09:50 PM

denver might score 150 tonight.........

'trane 03-14-2008 09:54 PM

This is undoubtedly the worst game of the season so far.
