    Prediction

    - 215
    - 235

    Two teams that aren't particularly fantastic on defense, hence why this might the first game EVER where two teams each score over 200 points. LOL

    I can't wait for the Bosh vs. Amare match-up. Considering the "new" Bosh and his consistent inside play now, it should make for an interesting evening.

    Doc, awesome job. Hilarious that you're predicting this will be a 235 to 215 point game. A combined 450 points?! How many fouls will be called? And how many 3 pointers will have to be made to get us there?

    On a more serious note, I think CB4 will post better numbers than Amare. I think CB4 has a much more complete game and more weapons at his disposal. But then again, I only follow the Raptors and not the Suns so I admittedly have not watched a whole lot of Amare's games. I do know that Amare hasn't posted numbers like CB4 has, though, so here's hoping CB4's play inspires the rest of the Raptors to bring their A-Game and beat the Suns.

    haha .... Thanks Carbon. Considering how neither team takes pride in their defense I jokingly took an opportunity poke fun at both teams.

    Bosh and Amare mathc-up sounds epic on paper. I hope there are matching up with one another and not switching off and have Frye on Bosh. I can't see that happening, but I expect big things from Andrea on Channing tomorrow too. Two centres that love the stretch the offense with their outside range. Should be an entertaining game tomorrow.

    According to Doug Smith rumour has it that Hedo is out for tonight's game.

    Not sure who will replace him yet. Likely Wright though.

    The bench coming up big tonight. Marco's been automatic so far.

    Although he's only played 8 minutes so far tonight, I hope we see more Weems after this game. He's been active all night and I love his court awareness.

    Is there such a thing as a good loss? If so, that was one. Good effort Raptors.
