"Lesser" meaning in the standings. But you never know, it's just on paper, and they might have our number.

Go Raps!!

I fear Ford getting into a Bibby battle.

I fear any game in which Ford has to match up against a scoring PG.

The thing that makes me feel ok is that Atlanta's big's are reletively young and won't set really hard or stable picks up top, so our PG's won't have to swith off on screens, they can stay high and still stay with Bibby. One of TJ's biggest problems is his weight, and inability to fight through screens, Jose's as well. It's an advantage guys like Jack and Billups have, Baron, guys like that, they can attack the pick and roll better as they are not as susceptable to the screen slowing them down.

If Atlanta isn't establishing real hard screens, we should be ok.

If Moon plays hard.
If Bosh can man the hell up and play HARD in the paint boxing out...and he will.

If if if.

Should be a good run, I look forward to watching.

lol at hawks being a "lesser" team ... right now we're not even playing like a top 20 team. I'm sure the Hawks would be very dissapointed if they don't win tonight, kind of like we feel when we lose to Indiana at home ... We probably have the worst record in the league over the past 15 games.

Calderon has been amazing on defense. Hes working like crazy. He defended Jonhson well for two plays.

Hoping and praying that it wasn't just for that one quarter either. He's lacking on the boxing out, but that's no surprise.

Rasho quietly having a career month and a bit too. Loving what he's doing on
both ends of the floor.

Forderon once again looking strong. Let's hope for more the same during the 2nd half.

Rasho, Rasho he's our man.

Had Rasho played like he is now at the start of the season he likely would of gotten consideration for the all-star game.

I know ... so sad, but unfortunately so true. Just look at Kobe, LeBron and Wade. Anyone so much as farts on them, they get the call.
