No Deron scares me a little bit.

Looks like Humphries is out for the rest of the season too.

I wonder who the Raps will shut down for this game...

This is a must-lose... if we win we will pass Washington in the standings, cannot let that happen.

You mean we "can" slip in the standings.

Shame this season got to the point where we cheered for the opposing team to win.

It'll all be worth it when our young guys are heading into their prime. Then we can finally cheer for our team for all 82 of our games LOL

So much mixed emotion in this thread, and I totally agree.

I always want my team to win, but I also realize the importance of drafting well to make your team competitive. Ideally, I'd like Washington to win all of their remaining games, and then we could too. However, winning a game or two at the end of the season has cost us draft positioning before. I believe if you're in the top 3, the furthest you can slide down is 4th, maybe 5th? However, if you're in 4th, you can fall a lot further.

I've just resigned (notice, not re-signed) myself to watching these games, and seeing effort from the guys. That's all I really care about. I'd like to see this team (injuries and all) stick with the really good teams until the last possession.

Tank or not, we should savour this game. We likely will win (although it the Raptors). We have Miami and Milwaukee left on the schedule. Point is this can be our last win in a while.

The wizards last 2 games are Boston and Cleveland.. they beat Cleveland every time they played them, so hopefully they can do it again. They also beat Boston once... hopefully they can pull off a miracle.
