Eventhough the Celts have been up and down over these last couple weeks, I still think they have our number. Boston beats us considerably.

Predict and discuss!

Boston's lost a few in the last week or so. Maybe we can catch them unawares.

As long as we give them our full effort the whole 48 minutes, which should be possible with all the days of rest Raps have had, it should be an interesting game.

We're most likely to lose, but you never know - if Bargnani could just break out of his funk...

Not sure about this one...definitely playing better right now but Garnett has shown in the past he can totally shut Bosh down. I dont' think it'll be a trouncing but i'd be surprised(pleasantly) if we can pull out a win.

Unless we suddenly change how we play offence or just get insanely hot from 3, we'll have no chance. They pray on predictable halfcourt teams like us. Jose is gonna have to be in forward motion THE ENTIRE GAME for us to even be close. If they unleash Leon Powe on us like they did Philly last game we're gonna get fucked on the boards too.

10 point game, and close all the way to the end of the last quarter. With one minute left they'll lead by 6.

I never make predictions and I am about to show why.

Raps win by 3.

I am going on a limb here but I think that there is a small chance Raps will lose this game...
