^^^^ Who is voting "No" every time? ^^^^

Warriors, at home, with a purpose, by 9. Close game throughout with Jack coming up big late.

No idea when Chris Bosh will be back. I would assume he should be back for this game especially being four days away from now.

But maybe a half-ready Bosh will be the difference in the game? :wink:

The Raptors are a good enough team that we will take seriously and therefore should come out with a purpose. Monta will get 30+ and the Warriors win by 12

this is gonna be a fun game to watch

Toronto is a good squad that can put up points in a hurry and if the W's don't play their best basketball they'll get blown out.


I expect Monta to have a Big game
I also expect MP to have another Productive game

The news reports just say Bosch is "day to day". They have two games between now and Wed, and the Wed game will be the second game of a back to back for the Raptors. That, plus the home court and the way the Ws are playing, and this will be a win.

I am not to crazy about this long layoff, but as we have all been saying, the Warriors are already in Playoff mode, and these home games are must win. If Bosh plays, I do expect him to be a factor, but he shouldn't be able to overcome the Warriors playing at home.

Toronto can't defeat anybody without Bosh. They have no inside game when he's out of the lineup, and not enough firepower in the rest of their guys.

If he doesn't play, it should be an easy win. If he does play, it gets much tougher, but we should still get the win at home.

Dubs by 5 if Bosh plays, by 15 if not.

i doubt bosh will play this one..the raptors spot in the playoffs is pretty secure and the last thing he should do is rush back. he'll play if he's 100% ready...maybe even 90%..but anything less im sure he'll sit out again. thing im worried about is TJ Ford. if he plays like he did when we visited toronto then we're in trouble.

either way i say dubs by 7.

Toronto is coming off a back to back against the Lakers...

Our W's will be coming off of a 3 day Break...

Lets hope our Ws don't come out cold
...


I loved Barons Intensity last game against Orlando...IF he Brings that winning attitude to the court every game the W's will make the Playoffs.

They're 3 and 6 without him. 30 and 22 with him.

Just remember, guys.... They say the Raptors are the Eastern Conference Warriors. They never say the Dubs are the Western Conference Raptors. Just some food for thought....

I dont really see that comparison...............I dont get to see the Raptors alot but they average 100.1 points and give up only 96.0 per game, they dont rebound well but they also dont get out-rebounded like we do.

The only reason people say they are like us is because they have alot of 3-point shooters................and again, I dont see many of there games but I dont see any comparison in the way they play at all.

Yea I know.. but the mere fact that they always compare the raptors to us, but never us to them, says a lot about who the better team is... I guess im reachin but just a thought
