    Default Raptors @ Timberwolves -- March 9th, 2014 @7pm

    The Toronto Raptors have head north to Minneapolis to go head-to-head in a dog fight against the luke-warm Timberwolves. It should be a tough game for JV and Amir, as they will have to guard the very skilled Kevin Love who leads the league in Double-doubles with a whooping 51 and also they will need to be on guard for the cave-troll in Pekovic that is a truly strong beast in the paint, definitely a tough match-up for Jonas. Another not as dangerous thing to watch out for is Ricky Rubio's relatively hot shooting. He has been shooting just a bit under 50% in his last ten, so defence will be quite key in tonight's match.

    Game time!



    VS.



    My prediction: Raps by 4 in a not-so-close at the beginning close at the end game.

    Zarar's prediction: Sun, Mar 9 --- @ Minnesota --- W

    "Raptors bounce back in Minny and take the front end of the back-to-back on the strength of Acy’s career-high 16 rebounds."



    Well, I guess that's not happening. But I agree with the W

    Go Raps!

    But the one that really needs to step up is JV.

    I wanna see some drives from DeMar. Minnesota has very little rim protection, he needs to want it. Minimize the forced long two's please.

    Pekovic can neutralize JV by simply sitting on him.

    But I'm hoping to see some good fight in JV this game.

    Last time vs. Minny JV played Pek pretty well. Lets hope he can repeat that.

    Lowry and Gravy too. Get to the rim and strong D and the raps take this by 7. Book it! (Not that I'm ever right anyway)

    Last time I distinctly remember that Petkovic was so beastly in the paint that I was surprised that the Raps came away with the victory. The only reason they did was that Love shat the bed that game
    limpin ain't easy, but I make it look good...

    Umm...He wasn't doing that well, especially against JV, who was doing a great job keeping him from getting too deep and establishing position. He finished 6-12 for 13 pts and 6 rebs...but he had a pretty meh impact on the game. The big problem is that if JV isn't playing well, basically Hayes is the only guy with the muscle to push him, but Pek is much taller than him. Last time was one of JV's stronger performances for post D.

    *Honestly think you might be remembering from last year in terms of Pek being beastly. He destroyed us in one of those late games last year.
