The team is doing great! What a win against the Pistons and that should carry over but you never know.

Warriors by 10

I'm more worried about this game than the previos one against the Pistons. I just like this Toronto team that much. They have it all to be a playoff team... except a coach.

For that single reason, I'm going with the Warriors by 5.

Dude, TJ Ford DOES NOT make that much of a difference.

Andrea Bargnani can't make up for the scoring loss of Mike James and Charlie Villanueva. The Craptors have gotten worse. And we've gotten better.

Seeing as the Warriors owned them last year, I'm taking Golden State by 10.

The fact that the Raptors play highscoring fast-paced basketball should favor the Warriors. I'm going with the Warriors by 12.

Thing is, that I'm not really worried about the Toronto backcourt of TJ Ford, Anthony Parker, because easily Baron Davis and Monta Ellis could out play them and Morris Peterson can't match up with Jason Richardson, but I'm more worried about Chris Bosh. I don't think any of the Warriors frontline could match up with Chris Bosh. The best bet is for Murphy to match with Rasho and Biedrins with Bosh. If Biedrins could effectively defend Bosh and not let him gobble up 15+ rebounds, then it should be:

TJ Ford has been real good and is much more of a PG than Mike James. His scoring is decent but his playmaking is what makes the raptors that much better

I'm a Chris Bosh fan. I'm not into any other player on this team because they aren't that dangerous. Without Bosh, they'd get killed. With Bosh, they'd be lucky to win games unless it is against a low mediocre team.

Exactly... I wouldn't be surprised if Bosh scores 40 on us. We just can't match up with him inside... We have the upper hand in the backcourt (although Toronto's backcourt is better defensively), but we can't stop Bosh inside.

Still think we'll win, but it'll be closer than expected.

Bosh hd a smooth touch and can score inside and out, but if be put AB on him and let Murph guard Rasho, we should to control Bosh from killing us. AB can match Boshs energy and the rest of the Ws outmatch the Raptors,
so Ws by 8

If the Warriors can beat Dallas, NO, and Detriot, I think the Raptors should be pushovers.

I say W's by 18, even with Foyle and Dunleavy in the game.

That's how confident I am about this win!
