Tough week ahead
 
This will be a difficult week. At least we should be well rested for Wednesday's game and hopefully Bosh will be back. But how tough will this be?

How well will we do?

Wednesday vs Portland (i'll be there :dancing:)
Friday vs Cleveland
Sunday @ OKC

I predict 1-2.

My guess is that at some point in each game you will say that you feel bad about their chances.

Psi 02-20-2010 10:12 PM

I don't think they're as hard as it looks.
Portland is on a B2B coming into Toronto.
Cleveland is on a B2B vs BOSTON coming into Toronto.
OKC is the real challenge.
2-1 or 3-0 imo.

Portland we can get. Cleveland & OKC are almost guaranteed losses imo.

0-3

The Knicks are almost beating OKC right now, The Raos have a pretty good chance. Portland will be chippy, but we will get the W, Camby won't be used to the defence in Portland in time to be effective against the Raptors.

Sun 21 @ Orlando 1:00pm
Tue 23 vs New Orleans 7:00pm
Thu 25 @ Boston 8:00pm
Fri 26 @ Toronto 7:00pm

That's the Cav's current schedule.
With their current re-adjusting after the trade and with that line up of away games "guaranteed" can't be said.

Also OKC is losing to the new look Knicks. :dancing:

OKC possibly losing to NY means nothing. They'll beat us in OKC.

Cleveland i guess, looking at that schedule might be able to be had, but i doubt it. I'd be shocked if we go 2-1.

Ball Don't Lie 02-20-2010 10:24 PM

Im going to the POR/CLE games, very much looking forward to em. I think we can take the POR game for sure since BRoy is still injured and not playing like himself, though we always play tight games vs them. Hopefully we dont have Jose on Miller.

And vs CLE, we'll need a gargantuant effort.

I dont like our chances in OKC

myklue 02-20-2010 10:26 PM

KNicks have mcgrady and house now, it seems to be benefitting them... both players are dropping bombs right now.

If we beat Cleveland, I think we can carry the momentum into OKC.
Still, staying solid on my 2-1 opinion.

Ball Don't Lie 02-20-2010 10:34 PM

The Thunder are the exact type of team we struggle against. 2 guys who can get to the basket at anytime and will shred our defence in Westbrook and Durant, and they crash the offensive boards a ton. Theyre extremely quick with their perimeter defence as well which will give all of our perimeter players problems.

The only way we win in OKC is with a huge effort by one of the PGs plus Bosh/Bargs. And I dont see that happening because I think OKCs quickness is going to give everyone trouble.

Lao Wai 02-21-2010 12:03 AM

2 & 1 think Portland,Cleveland Wins OKC Lose

Beesh 02-21-2010 12:14 AM

portland and cavs are at home, so I say we can pull of those wins. Plus, we've played the cavs pretty well this year and with new players for cavs, maybe we catch the off guard :evillaugh:
But that game at OKC is going to be a tough loss im afraid.
2-1 hopefully!!

DonMughal 02-21-2010 12:28 AM

Portland will be tough but we will come out with the win with the return of Bosh and the help from the crowd.

Cleveland we lose,

and OKC will be extremely tough, but a great matchup. Two hot teams. Depends on how much momentum we have from Cleveland, if any.

Dark Knight 02-21-2010 12:31 AM

Portland should be a win if we continue to play the way we are now. Cleveland game might be a loss. OKC game could really go either way.

I say 2-1 or 3-0

I know Reggie is not back into 100% game shape but he's going to be very useful against Shaq; and our other can focus on Lebron, Jamison, William, etc and a back to back game against Boston will tired them against our well rested Toronto at home :yeah:

BBallFan 02-21-2010 01:20 AM

With Bosh back for Porland game - 2 &1
Raps will be at home with opponents on B2Bs, we should beat Portland and Cleveland (Bosh always compete against LeBron). OKC would be tough in their home court.

With Bosh back for Cleveland - 1 & 2.
I don't think our guys can handle Portland without Bosh. With Bosh back and fresh, we should take Cleveland at home. OKC would still be tough in their home court

Windex 02-21-2010 01:31 AM

the one thing thats certain is a loss in OKC
Portland and Cleveland will be 50/50 chances
1-2 after the 3 games is what I expect

Lao Wai 02-21-2010 01:52 AM

Toronto has a strong at home record so look for victories against Portland and Cleveland.
Toronto still matches up well with Cleveland plus they will have some confusion getting Jamison into the lineup.
Portland has injuries plus fitting Canby into the line-up.

OKC tough team a good test on the road.
