What do you think will happen on this upcoming 3 game home stretch. IMO they need to take 2 of 3. Tall order with Miami and Orlando coming to town.

vs Miami (Fri)

vs Orlando (Sun)

vs Pacers (Tues)

I think we match up with Miami SOOO well...Especially since Wade has to guard our weakest position. We know that Bosh is quicker than Haslem/JO and taller/stronger than Beasley. If we can put together 30 minutes of solid defence and continue being the most efficient offensive team in the league we can win that one!!

But Indiana's Granger is a handful and the Magic have too much perimeter movement for the Raptors to contain the 3's.

They're not playing anyone on the back-end of a back-to-back.

I hope they can go 2-1, but wouldn't be surprised with a 1-2 stretch.

Most likely were gonna win 1 of those game, i think we can beat the pacers and the heat. Orlando is gonna be tough, but this time jameer wont drop 30 on us but they do have Carter and lewis back. W/e, it will still be a very entertaining game even if we lose.

I'd agree with that. Although I could see us beating ORL too since they'll be sans Nelson and we'll have something to prove....

But 2 out of 3? Yeah... that's what we need at least.

Sans Nelson?? Woopy! They'll still have Howard, VC, Lewis, Pietrus, Barnes and others.

Plus we'll likely not have Turkoglu and or Wright. Orlando will kill us.

We will beat ORL sunday. Its going to be the loudest youve seen the ACC since the playoffs. Orlando wont be able to overcome the energy.

I'm going to the game with 7 friends, so we'll make sure of it

Carter's gonna drop 25 on us..

They can take the Pacers (just like they could take Memphis) and definitely have a strong shot against Miami.

Hopefully this doesn't prove to be the case, but Friday could be one of those 'schedule losses' where the team just comes out flat at home after a tough west coast trip.

It would certainly be nice to get 2 wins out of this. And I dont think thats far fetched either.

Miami is 7-4 but they have played 8/11 at home and have only won one quality team (Denver). Other than that they have been beating bad-decent teams (NY, NJ, Indiana, Washington, Bulls). I would say its a game we should win.

Orlando will be the toughest one. They have been batling injuries (plus Lewis suspension) and still managed 9-3 record. They got all sorts of talent that can kill us. D12 can go nuts inside, Carter can decide to show why its his arena still, or Lewis might be killing us with threes. But they too have had more home games than away ones and pretty easy opponents so far. So its not impossible either.

Indiana is 5-4 after playing 6 of 9 at home and beating teams like NYK, GSW, and NJ. They did manage to win Boston, but other than that all their wins are cheap ones. So this is a must win.

If we can get that 2-1 record we just might get out of November only two games below .500 which I would consider an ok performance considering the schedule (we are still facing Bobcats, Phoenix and Boston after these three).

Winning the first game of these three would be a good way to get things started and to take advantage of the home cooking. Realistically I think they will go 1-2 with a win over Indiana provided that they do not treat that game as an afterthought after playing the Magic on Sunday.
