We kind of redecorated the live blog set up at least on my end of things. The Return of Reggie Evans the former Sixer makes his Raptors Regular season debut. Not appearing his Hedo Turkoglu due to illness in family, same story for Allen Iverson who's daughter is ill and he is back it Atlanta.
Like I said no A.I, Sonny Weems will start in place of Hedo for the Raps.
Evans is expected to play only 5-10 minutes max according to Jay Triano in an interview on Toronto Radio today.
Raps with a win will set a record for most home wins at All Star Break with 20.
Holiday and Green the starting back court for Sixers with usual suspects in Iggy, Brand and Sam D.
Raps have Jack, DeRozan, Weems, Bosh and Bargnani. Your starters for the Raps.
So as we reach this unofficial half way point for Raps what are your thoughts on these Raptors?
We have about 15 minutes to talk prior to tip so if you have anything to say let's here from you.
I am personal excited for the return of Reggie Evans I have interviewed him a few times and know how hard he has worked to get back.
He will make everyone tougher. Thing about if you have a friend that is a tough guy and you go to a bar. You feel a little safer cause he is there. That is the first thing he can do.
Beyond that he is a force on the glass and a decent defender of ether a 4 or a 5 despite his lack of size at 6 8ish
Nah when I said to Reggie some think of yo like a Charles Oakley he answered nah he had a jump shot. Reggie is a real guy and tough as heck on the floor but one of the nicer guys off the floor.
His offense is not why he is here and he knows it.
I think that is a question for TSN this is the Score but I feel your pain was in your shoes last season. I do the best to make live blog an excellent substitute.
But yes this one is one the duece.
This is last game before a week off for Raptors there next game after the break is a week today against the surprising Grizzlies.
Raps have won 7 straight at the ACC and really have done an excellent job defending their home floor.
LOL well we love that kinda spirit here on liveblogs well I do anyway.
Should be interesting night at ACC as mentioned by on of you Sixers have won 5 straight but Eddie Jordan's first season with Sixers overall has been disappointing.
So what are you folks most looking forward to on All Star Weekend?
CB4 will be coaching the sophomores going against Kevin Durant coaching the Rooks.
Don't you mean Demar cause he is winning he told me so...LOL
Anyway let's hope we get a show LBJ is a DNP for dunk contest.
Depends on where you live and what cable provider you are rocking.
Almost game time in the T-Dot!!!
Run This Town Tonight the theme to welcome the Starting 5 to the Floor.
Like that tune not many current tunes I dig but that is one.
Ok HERE WE GO LIVE ON SCORE.COM AND SCORE MOBILE...GAMETIME AT THE ACC!!!
Raps in the tradition home red and white. Sixers in the old school red retro look Sixer uniforms.
Tip Time is T-DOT is NOW!!!!
