We get rolling in 10 with what you folks are saying heading into this one so drop a comment in and I will post it when we get rolling at 6:45.
Wade has had a few off nights by his high standards and that is something to worry about for the Raps.
They NEED to win if they are GOING to win is another question.
What should help is Hedo Turkoglu returns to the line up. Wright remains out for 2nd straight game and Reggie Evans is still stuck on 2 weeks away.
both of these teams come in on losing streaks...Raps lost 3 straight and the Heat 2...both are losers of the last 3 of 4.
The Good- Chris Bosh and Marco Belinelli
The Bad- Jose Calderon and Jarrett Jack
The Ugly- The Raps D and the start they had in Utah.
He was good in the last game he played against the Suns...very good in the 4th quarter.
Calderon needs to stay in front of his man on D...I want to see that before I even worry about what he does on the other end.
This starts a 3 game home stand for the Raps with Magic here on Sunday and a game I am going to cover for the Dino Nation Blog vs Pacers on Tuesday.
As far as thing go for Miami there division looks tough with the Magic and Hawks both off to impressive starts.
The Bobcats even have got better you would figure with recently adding Stephen Jackson from the Warriors.
In the Atlantic it is a 1 horse race with the Celtics ahead of the division and may lap everyone before it is done.
The start tonight I feel is key for the Raptors they need to get this crowd behind them at the ACC. If they have a start anything close to the one in Utah this crowd could turn on them fast.
The Raps need to start re-estalishing a home court advantage
In the year they won their lone Division Title they won 30 games at the A.C.C that number has been on the decline since.
Is there ever a good time to lose 4 in a row?
J.O you folks remember him? He got off to fast start this season in Miami but of late has had injury issues...SHOCKING I KNOW.
Let's hope it is some quality ball for 4 Quarters.
This is a special day for me. It was a year ago today that the Dino Nation Blog teamed up with The Score it would be nice if the Raps could get a W for us.
Tip time is almost here in the T-Dot so let's see which Raptor team decides to show up tonight.
well technically I am in Hamilton but you know what I mean...LOL
Where ever you happen to be it is almost time for basketball.
The 7-4 Heat take on the 5-7 Raps.
I tweeted to Demar DeRozan to give me a dunk to go crazy about hope he can make it happen.
Intros going down at the ACC
It is the regular starting 5 for your Raptors....Bosh, Bargnani, Hedo(returning) , DeRozan and Calderon.
It may be eating all that pizza...I hope not I like to eat pizza.
Jones, O'Neal, Beasley, Chalmers and D-Wade the starting 5 for the Heat.
By 1 or 21...Raps need a win.
