    I'll be there.

    If Sean Williams doesn't play, I'll be disappointed.

    Raps need to win this one. And win big. I predict CB will have a monster night along with Turk. Harris/Lopez will go off as usual. It's a matter of the Raps containing the other players, and not letting role players have career games, which has been the case a number of times this season. Case in point, JJ Reddick anyone?

    Raps 105
    NJ 90

    Let's Go Raptors!!!

    CDR. 'Nuf said. Watch him pick off at least three lazy passes and come away with breakaway dunks. Interested to see how far Yi has come along.

    Yeah CDR has been a bright spot this season for NJ. Is he playing tonight? I thought he was still out with that knee injury?

    Unless you've heard otherwise Arse, I think he's still injured and likely isn't playing tonight.

    Well that should help us but whenever a good player on the other team is injured we always find a way to lose :dead:

    I missed the first few minutes ... did something happen to Brook Lopez?

    Injured or just foul trouble?

    Courtney Lee is a lot of fun to watch. Very good defensive + good offensive player, nice shooting stroke and good at finishing on the rim. Excellent quickness and good athleticism.

    Haha, Weems losing the ball before that alley oop pass to DeRozan ... three great fastbreaks in a row after Amir throws one down.

    Excellent block by Bargnani on Devin Harris' drive to lead to that DeRozan dunk.

    Wow -- 39-15 after one

    Superb performance by the Raptors and an awful one from the Nets.

    The Nets offense has been dreadful this year. 30th in offensive efficiency + 30th in eFG%.

    They don't have enough offensive firepower to make back a 24 point deficit. This game is over.

    Nets should play Bobby Simmons at the power forward position and try to spread the floor out. Alongside some combination of Lee/CDR/Williams/Harris on the perimeter.

    Brook Lopez is their only big man who has a positive impact on the game. They should try to limit their other bigs playing time.

    Now this is more like it. This has been a fun game to watch. Marcus Banks is looking like Pistol Pete out there tonight.

    Nice dish from Jack and two-handed slam from Bargnani.
