Prediction

http://www.ebsports.net/bbs/sficons/...raptors_sm.gif - 105
http://www.ezekielbearsports.com/bbs/nba/wizards.gif - 95

Apparently Bosh is still going to be out for a while longer, so considering the Wiz are playing without their two stars right now we should be able to beat Antawn and the Wiz. :)

Predict and discuss!

fancylad 03-06-2008 02:47 PM

honestly, it will be up to TJ if we win or lose.

Ball Don't Lie 03-06-2008 03:16 PM

I htought Bosh was back after the roadtrip?

Belsius 03-06-2008 03:18 PM

Nope, I believe Feschuk mentioned this morning that Bosh had another scan on his knee yesterday and he's going to miss the next few games. :(

BballWatcher 03-06-2008 03:19 PM

Before getting steamrolled by the Magic the Wiz beat a really good team - New Orleans. They beat them again about a week earlier.

Wiz are still dangerous, even without their two "best players." Practically everybody on that roster is having a career year. DeShawn, Daniels and Blatche have played well in wins. Jamison is stellar.

Raptorman 03-06-2008 05:10 PM

I wish it looked like the team was taking advantage of this time to gel without CB4. It seems they are treading water waiting for his return.

The MVP of West Hollywood 03-06-2008 05:49 PM

I think we should still win this one... Remember how pissed we were when we lost to the Wiz without Caron before? And now we're at home.

Really the only reason Washington has looked good lately is because they beat New Orleans twice, and it's natural to assume they just had their number like they did Boston. Otherwise in the last stretch, they got blown out by Orlando and Houston, lost to the Knicks, and beat crappy Charlotte and Chicago. Actually, that's better than what we've been doing lately...

Kuzzy 03-06-2008 11:05 PM

who cares
lets finish 6th
face orlando
get bosh rested up
advance to 2nd round
gain some experience and face the best of the best.

Torontosaurus 03-06-2008 11:21 PM

If we start strong like last game, I think its winnable

Is Bargnani gonna play or is he too injured?

Andrea will be playing. :)

Yahoo Preview available this morning guys. ;)

alseaf 03-07-2008 12:37 PM

we have to start winning these winnable games, especially since Bosh seems to be out for longer than anticipated, thus leaving us exposed as ever during the west coast trip coming up.

Claudius 03-07-2008 01:33 PM

I'll be at this game. They haven't lost in my presence since 2001 against San Antonio. I shall be massively disappointed if we get our asses handed to us by washington.

moremilk 03-07-2008 01:34 PM

what makes this a winnable game? I say it's a fifty-fifty at best. They beat us two times already, one with CB4 and one without. Blatche, Haywood and Young will destroy us tonight on the boards if we're not careful. Considering they come after a bad beating and we after a nice blowout, the best odds are that we lose a painful one, 55-30 on the boards ...

alseaf 03-07-2008 01:47 PM

i agree that this is pretty much a toss up becasue with their respective stars out, the teams may be evenly matched. moremilk, this and next seattle game arr winnable compared to the next 3 after that...LAKERS, WARRIORS, DENVER. Without Bosh, we lose all 3, not chance.

ClingRap 03-07-2008 05:52 PM

i like the wizards bench over ours. for some reason i have a bad feeling about this one, a really bad one.

Oscar 007 03-07-2008 07:11 PM

Considering how effectively we've been rebounding I figure it will be a cake walk ??!!! They're toast if they can't rebound tonight. I remain eternally optimistic: Raps by 8.

lang 03-07-2008 07:26 PM

Hey Oscar. Welcome to RF! :)

The MVP of West Hollywood 03-07-2008 07:50 PM

Man does Roger Mason own us. Every damn game.

INSIDER 03-07-2008 08:17 PM

if i see Moon take another terrible 3 point shot, i'm going to break my tv.
