Thank god we're going home after tonight. Key to tonight is for us not to get too blown out of the water. Unfortunately I don't see that happening for us. It's going to get ugly.

Predict and discuss!

I hate to rock the boat, but TJ was playing well last night in spurts. Or maybe it was Jose sucking so much that made him look good.

I cant wait for the Raps to string a few wins together and erase this roadtrip.We all knew we couldnt handle the West. It's like knowing your GF is unfaithful...but you still cant watch her in the act. Dont need to see it.

TJ is like that, 2-3 games where he looks like he understands that he has to pass from time to time, and then 2-3 where he goes rambo and shoots 25 shots ...

Anyone think its time to maybe consider starting Ford? I'd be willing to take that risk. Maybe Jose can help bring to life our second unit.

Again I'll wait to see how Jose looks with Bosh back and wait to see if TJ keeps up the team play he showed last night. But I'm beginning to think that might be our best option for the playoffs. It just hasn't felt right so far.

I think we should put TJ on the inactive list and bring Martin back - at least we'd end up having one good pg. Before TJ returned, Calderon was playing comfortable and good, now he's afraid to even shoot anymore after seeing TJ going wild every time he steps on the floor ...

Your right on moremilk I totally agree. Also, I would not put it pass MJ Ford by saying that hes happy that the team is doing poorly so he can get back into the starting line up. It would be a terrible embarrassement to the raptor organization to reward MJ Ford by letting him start. Hell, what would that do to all the young raptor fans, what kind of lessons will young athletes learn from a debacle like promoting MJ Ford to the starting line up.

I was quoting that Moremilk and Raptor123 say that would be a good idea.

oh. nevermind then. I just saw the last post in the thread (yours at the time) and clearly misinterpreted it.

That's what happens when you're not watching the game.

wtf. these Utah commercials are wicked! My favorite part of the game so far.

Actually that awesome Humphries clank with 2 on the shot clock was great too.
