Howard vs Bargs on the boards. WHO WANTS IT MORE!!! :haha:

Superjudge 03-03-2008 01:36 PM

152- 61

Toronto is deadmeat.


fancylad 03-03-2008 01:46 PM

we'll win. We need this more than orlando. Orlando will underestimate.

Bargnani will have a big game. Rasho will contain Howard all night long.

and then when we DO win... everything will be gravy once again and we can start planning that parade on yonge st.

INSIDER 03-03-2008 04:05 PM

sorry boys...
orlando will rock us.

Right on.

snappity snap.

If Dwight doesn't grab a 30 boards tonight, he will be labelled as a "bust" in my books.

Ball Don't Lie 03-03-2008 10:21 PM

This could definately be one of those games where we surprise and play insanely well since we're playing a better team and we've surprised in games like this on the road vs good teams so far so who knows.

moremilk 03-03-2008 10:24 PM

a little "bird" told me Sam's secret strategy against Orlando. We will play small ball, with Moon at center defending Howard. Moon will use his quickness to bother howard and force a lot of turnovers ... Apparently Sam wanted to save this for the playoffs, but he got scared by the recent slump and was forced to reveal its plans ahead of schedule ... :)

RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 03-03-2008 10:52 PM

Raptors 88
Magic 101


Kuzzy 03-03-2008 11:25 PM

Bargnani another bad game.
Howard 25 boards.
Magic win by 20+.
Can almost gurantee a Magic victory.

alseaf 03-04-2008 10:16 AM

look out for Sam's new and improved 'experiment'. He will have Jose, TJ, and mole-face Martin on the court at the same time, while having the towel boy at center and Stephen Graham at PF... that's right, i said Stephen.

We'll lose by 20+ and Van gundy will call out Superman for not grabbing 50 rebounds when matched up against Il Fago.

Yahoo Preview available fellas .... unfortunately Jay's tied up with work and family commitments over the next little while so we won't have his previews for awhile. :(

No, Garrity. :crying:

moremilk 03-04-2008 01:32 PM

apparently we broke another nba (negative) record with the biggest second point differential since they started tracking the stat ... we also have the 82 point, and the season is still young ...

against the magic, the best strategy is to play no defense and try to shoot 70% on offense. Howard cannot rebound made shots, so that would solve the rebounding problem ... :)

Belsius 03-04-2008 07:06 PM

we need the best of calde and TJ to win these. GO RAPS.
