    OK guys and gals, tomorrow night we take on the other team which all of the NBA have already written off in the Cavaliers. But based on their performance the other night versus Beantown, this isn't going to be a cake walk for the Raptors. Antawn is coming off the bench and apparently isn't happy. Mo Williams will be a game time decision because of a nagging groin injury. So in their absences (aka limited time for Antawn) players like Sessions, Hickson and Boobie Gibson have stepped in their place. Should be interesting tomorrow night at the ACC.

    Varrejao might not play, his dad is having heart surgery and he's been excused. Afternoon decision.

    Raptors better win, I've got my tickets to the game! Cleveland did just beat Boston though, hopefully they spent a lot of energy in the process...

    Thanks Mack. Didn't see that earlier. I'll tweak the line-up then.

    After looking at that lineup, I am thankful the Raptors are not as hosed as the Cavs.

    The problem with them is not just that they suck. Heck, if they keep playing good defense, they might get a playoff spot. The problem with them is that they suck and they are OLD. Old, old, old and crappy. Poor bastards.

    Under Cleveland's Bench it says "Graham". Would that be a Joey Graham or a Stephen Graham? Or is there a triplet I don't know about?

    That's Joey, Mack. As if you can't tell the difference between him and his brother.

    Hey, if Varejao isn't starting, who's gonna take his place, Hollins? LMFAO.

    Thing we need to do to win
    -------------------------

    Kleiza needs to play better, hit open shots and stop turning the ball over.

    Bargs needs to shoot some more jumpshots/3s.

    Defend the perimeter, if we give up 9 3s again we are doomed.

    Make free throws! Especially late.

    Amir needs to stop taking retarded fouls.

    Weems needs to shoot better.

    hahaha i know ive started my day right when ive read your post heinz

    i think the raps are going to win this one, but they shouldnt take the cavs for granted because they still have dangerous players.

    if we win tonight, we'll be tied with the heat and celtics. who wouldve known.....

    Serious? You actually lost? HAHA. In my My Player I got drafted by Memphis 25th. I restarted because my earlier PG got drafted by the Spurs 20th, but I was 5'10 and they kept on playing me at the 2 and 3. I was matched up for 20 minutes against Rashard Lewis in one game. But now Memphis is funner, I'm a SG, 6'4 and I get time at SG and PG

    LOL.. i wont say the it was ME who lost.. but by the time i got subbed in, we were already down by 14 towards the end of the 1st, and bargs was lighting it up.

    miami is messed in the game though, i'm a 6'3" SG... and they've given me time at every position except C. trying to get your teammate grade up when you're a guard defending KG is impossible

    i debated restarting the second miami drafted me.. but you get a TON of open looks on that team

    Yeah, they shouldn't allow that. But I'm pretty good with Memphis now. I'm the sixth man after 10 games (I play Association way more, 35-12 with TO on HOF difficulty and 12 minute quarters) I get tons of dunks And tons of offensive rebounds. In 21 minutes a game, I average 3 rebounds, 2.7 offensive rebounds. 4 assists as well Oh, and 18 points on 56%. I don't have any threes made, cause I'm "athletic". I'm going way off topic LOL. Raps over Cavs!

    Kleiza needs to stop travelling, Bargs needs to establish a low post presence, Derozan has a terrible jumper, Calderon looks flat out shitty- give his spot to Banks or Bosa

    it's funny, we were at an Indiana game a couple seasons ago when Stephen was on them. We kept telling everyone around us Joey got traded at halftime! There were many believers, let me tell you! We were like 6 rows above the Indiana bench...

    Jamison won't start, so they'll probably have Hollins starting. We don't need 'Drea shooting jump shots all game...we need him dominating in the paint and get their bigs into foul trouble. Hopefully, Calderon has a better game and everyone else improves their shooting.

    Look for the Raptors to try and constantly get to the line. It's one of the best ways to deal with a defensive team like Cleveland.
