Not the same Atlanta team we normally abuse. I still dont' think they can deal with Bosh but we're going to have to find some D in this one.

Let's get Joey out there with the express purpose of taking Horford out at the knees.

Nice idea, however this team has niether the balls, or the respect for each other to go at Horford. They are all too level headed.

i say we start carlos, joey, baston, primos and linton. just for the first minute or two, and have each one of them go up to horford and stare at him before the game starts. that should rattle him a fair bit. we can the sub them out, get back to the starters, and make sure he gets a stare-down every time we make a sub for the whole game. if that doesn't make him think twice about going to the hoop nothing will.

I hate to take things for granted ... we usually play down with "lesser" teams and it bites as back in the arse, so we damn well better win this one. I'd like to see the defense win this one.

Go Raps!!!
