    Default GT: TOR Raptors @ PHX Suns 9pm: all about core growth as we countdown to detonation

    Yaaa after Tuesday's stinker against the Warriors... need I remind you largest lead loss given up in Raptor History, really looking forward to the ay Raptors start making positive history... lol

    Casey's days are probably counting down as well, I mean this is what got Smitch fired by BC way back when and he brought his own coach, Ujiri may do the same but hes a completely different GM than BC. Suns are actually pretty good and I don't know if anyone has been watching their games (I haven't) they are quite the surprise this year go Bledsoe go!

    I watch Raps right now just to see DeMar continue beasting on his efficiency and recent amazing Kobe Bryant impersonation, JV continuing to do his thing getting a lot more exp, Ross continue showing off how good he can be on defense and as 6th man..... winnable game but you know those RAPTORS and winnable games

    It will help the players that the game ends around midnight EST, as opposed to nearly one in the morning. Better for the fans, too.

    This is going to be one of those depressing games where we see a team that is in full-on rebuild mode that has better players than the Raps, plays better basketball and looks to have a real possibility of a bright future. Then we will be reminded that the Suns have 4 first rounders in 2014, too.

    Ugh. Go Raps!

    Lots of "somebody has to win" games tonight:

    Charlotte/Philly
    Washington/Milwaukee
    Atlanta/Cleveland

    Another game...

    We all know how GSW game ended, so I'm pleased to tell you that NBA allowed us to win this game against Suns.

    Suns will score more than 100 points.
    Raps will win by 4-7.
    Demar will get his 18 points to become sixth player in our beautiful franchise' history with 5000 career points. I don't think PJ Tucker can defend so well two games in a row. Demar will score 18 pts or more.

    and sure.. the next game against Lakers we'll lose because it's going to be live on NBA TV.

    We have zero wins when we give up 100 points. If the Raps win, the game will likely be in the 90's.
    Whatever you do, do it the best you can

    I know. We had only few wins when we gave up 100 points or more last season. I took total over ( 200+ ) and underdog raptors money line tho - that's why this game is going to be special. We'll win this game without playing defense.

    I don't see a bright future in Phoenix, I seem to recall that their owner (Robert Sarver) is as cheap as it gets.

    Not really...

    Charlotte has been quite good all season, maybe Philly takes it but most likely Charlotte takes this

    Washington is on a hot streak and Milwaukee is awful. Clear winner is going to be Wash

    Atlanta is much better than Cleveland

    So really the only 50/50 game is Orl and NYK

    If your basis for drawing conclusions about a team's prospects is how much its owner is willing to spend then you must think the Nets are going to win 20 titles in a row...

    being able to keep them should be a factor.

    Kobe had the choice of a conditioning stint in the D-League or starting against the Raps and he decided it would safer to ease his way back into game shape this way.

    Just made a threat about it and didn't see this comment, my bad.
