Can't kick the pessimism just yet guys. ;)

Predict and discuss!

Tomorrow on ABC i see us winning as Detroit rests its starters.

Toronto- 103
Detroit- 94

moremilk 04-12-2008 09:46 PM

toronto by 1 after detroit leads by double digits in the first half.

Dr. J. Naismith 04-12-2008 09:50 PM

Our only hope for tomorrow is that the Pistons continue to struggle like they have prior to their game the other night where the demolished the Wizards. Pistons were losing some bad games to some weak teams. We can only hope for the same outcome tomorrow. :(

Raptorsince95' 04-12-2008 09:52 PM

I think the score will be.

Toronto Raptors-115
Detroit Pistons-104

I hope your right '95, but I don't see us scoring 115 points on a team like Detroit. :(

BTW, welcome to RF man. :clapping:

Acie 04-13-2008 12:24 AM

If the Raps win I'm going to streak through the neighbourhood.

Ball Don't Lie 04-13-2008 01:19 AM

If TOR wins I'll go down to the pool area in the hotel and kiss the hot pool girl.

If so, then pictures please. ;)

Previews are now available for those who care :)

Torontosaurus 04-13-2008 01:03 PM

I just hope we keep this game competitive at the very least :redbite:

Acie 04-13-2008 01:10 PM

Good start so far.

I love Hubie Brown.

Dr. J. Naismith 04-13-2008 01:11 PM

Good start to the game. Rasho and Bosh are already too much for McDyess and Rashweed. :clapping: *knocks on wood*

Jamario with some awesome help defense and a couple steals already too. :)

Dr. J. Naismith 04-13-2008 01:19 PM

Damn .... we gotta double team Billups in the post or he's going to have a field day on Ford and Jose in the paint today. :(

Belsius 04-13-2008 01:21 PM

pretty good offense by both teams.

Acie 04-13-2008 01:21 PM

Bosh scoring on Sheed in the post and looking confident.

What's up with that?

Bosh is likely pumped up a bit because this game is on national television. Something to prove I guess. :)

BTW, did any of you know that Mark Jones and Paul Jones were brothers? I had no clue until Mark said so today. :confused2:

Dr. J. Naismith 04-13-2008 01:28 PM

Bargnani needs to get his ass in the paint on offense. Considering we're strictly a damn jump shooting team, Rasho's the only one in the paint for the offensive boards compared to the 3 or 4 Pistons players fighting against him. Where's Andrea you say? Camping out at the three point line. :mad:

I had no idea idea. Makes sense though, since they're two ugly bastards. :evillaugh:

Awful play to end the half.

Belsius 04-13-2008 01:29 PM

ummm a run by detroit. In the last seconds, I hate that.

Did Prince's three pointer count? :confused2:
