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.

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

BTW, welcome to RF man.

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

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

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

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.

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.


Awful play to end the half.
