Prediction

http://www.ebsports.net/bbs/sficons/...raptors_sm.gif - 89
http://www.ezekielbearsports.com/bbs/nba/wolves.gif - 94

Minny might have a shitty record, but they've been playing some decent teams as of late and either winning close ones or losing by only a couple points. I'll be pessimistic again and say we lose a close one Sunday night in Minneapolis. :(

Predict and discuss!

Kuzzy 02-09-2008 01:47 PM

if we lose this game
im giving away my tickets to the Nets game.

No you won't because its Vince who's coming back to town. :angryfire:

Torontosaurus 02-09-2008 06:03 PM

I'll give them the benefit and count the last Clips game as just shaking off the rust from a week of waiting.

I say we win it, although Minny may make a game of it.

Man we better not lose this one, I will never hear the end of it.

Ball Don't Lie 02-10-2008 04:03 PM

For how much they get made fun of for their record, MIN has competed night in and night out and has been in pretty much every game this season(especially lately). This isnt gonna be an easy game by any stretch of the imagination.

As long as we box out Smith and Jefferson we should still win, and double Jefferson every possession if Bosh is on him

Belsius 02-10-2008 04:13 PM

I think jefferson is not playing

Belsius 02-10-2008 06:30 PM

really impotant game tonight. Is not going to be easy

Benzo 02-10-2008 06:52 PM

Jose looks groovy out there I think thats 6 assists in the first 7mins.

Bosh and Bargs both looking confidant...

...AP making Marco Jaric look like Magic Johnson.....better D than Mo my ass.

Belsius 02-10-2008 07:03 PM

jose 5 points, 8 assists, 1 rebound, in 10 mins. Another huge 1st. Lets hope he ends the game strong.

Belsius 02-10-2008 07:07 PM

marko jarik, how lucky is that guy, dating gisele bunchen

Benzo 02-10-2008 07:07 PM

Delfino is a chucker.

Why the quick hook on Moon...foul trouble?

moremilk 02-10-2008 07:10 PM

a few tj ford classics - wild penetration and a pass to nowhere, luckily touched last by a wolves player. Final possession of the quarter, he has andreea wide open and ready for a 3pt shot, but he decides to pass to parker who wasn't free and missed a contested shot ...

Belsius 02-10-2008 07:14 PM

delfino is doing pretty well.

Belsius 02-10-2008 07:15 PM

lol TJ already with 5 assists. Our Pgs have 13 assists an no turn overs. Thats what I call efficency

moremilk 02-10-2008 07:23 PM

tj is so quick though - if only he'd improve on his decision making, he would be an amazing point guard.

Belsius 02-10-2008 07:35 PM

Thats why fucking calde should take more shots

Belsius 02-10-2008 08:53 PM

Good things on this game:

- Caldes defense on the 3rd.
- Kapono best shooter ever.
- I forgot, Bargs constantly smiling in the game. Havent seen that in a long time. 16 points 6 rebounds, 2 offensive
- kaponos head:

Tj trying to get a double double in the end with that three point shot.

This team is really annoying, can we play contantly like this please? This is a fucking rollercoster.

He's looked great so far since coming back, but surprisingly(never thought a toronto fan would say this eh?) not looking for his shot enough. But I guess thats a good thing when thats what the D is giving him. TJ's a top 5 PG when playing like he did today, better than Jose because TJ gets in the lane for his assists and gets others LAYUPS as well as wide open shots.
