Manu's a game time decision, but even without him we still can contain Bonner.

Predicting a loss tonight to the 15-1 at home Spurs.

Predict and discuss!

We usually play them down to the wire(besides last year because of Bowen injuring everyone).

Hopefully we keep it close, if we win this game I'll streak down my street at midnight shouting "JOEY GRAHAM MVP".

Wow. scrappy game. we showed some poise, capital P poise. I think our defense was nice, and I liked how sam parked bosh's jump shooting ass on the bench for the entire fourth. I also think they're aggressive double's and Bosh's turning the ball over out of them made him a liability and the energy coming from that unit was nice.

What the hell? Did they call the game at half time or something? 83-73.

Missed another dandy it seems.

Who was the player of the game for the Raps guys?

The top performers for each team were Tim Duncan for the Spurs and Jose Calderon for the Raptors.

Man, am reading those stats correctly and Bargnani had 3 blocks tonight?

Wow, some stellar defense from the big guy. How was he actually on defense tonight fellas?

BTW, this team frustrates me to no end. We lose to absolute shit teams and play awesome against the better ones in the league. What gives?

Bosh' jump shooting ass deserves to be sat a lot more often. Bargs and Humps is a good combo.

Trade Bosh+ for Kobe

Great game! Nervous when the spurs got it down to 1 point as we sometimes wilt under pressure, but they held their own this game against a very experienced team.

Bosh got some extra rest, so here's hoping for a monster game from him vs Houston.

I said Bosh+...+means more, like Bosh, Graham, 1st, 2nd for Kobe.

How is that stupid Bosh and Bynum would look real nice and they could trade those picks and Graham or other players for another quality player.

One of my all time favourite sports moments happened in this game, when Pop thought he got tossed, left, came back and made sure he got tossed, then headed back out. That was beautiful.

The one thing that was evident tonight (and has been in many other Spurs games) is that when you put really heavy pressure on Duncan, he gets upset and starts whining. Remember the whole Joey Crawford incident? It didn't happen because he was laughing on the bench, it had more to do with his history of whining to refs, which led to Crawford taking his laughing waaaaaay to personally, which then led to Duncan being tossed. For a big guy, he doesn't like when teams get a little rough with him.

Nice to see Bonner still knocking a guy down when he feels it is necessary. That bodycheck on Calderon was NHL quality.
