    Yikes, do we sincerely have a chance tomorrow night? I don't see the outcome looking too optimistic for the Raptors versus the Lakers.

    I voted Raptors but I'm not really being realist. Hoping more then actually believing they'll win.

    Look at their starters, then look at our starters...ouch.

    However, it should be fun to see our potential stars (AB and DD) going up against established stars (KB and PG) to see how they fair. Pau and Kobe are the two ideal players to show Bargs and Demar how to the play the game so school's in session.

    This game could get uglier than the Utah game in the 1st Q. It'll be interesting to watch Barg's play against the Lakers length inside and see if Reggie can do to LA what he did to NY, Clev, Sac or will LA game plan for him like Utah did?

    I can see LA exerting their dominance early then taking responsibility for it later ala Cesar Millian The Dog Whisperer's philosophy for being a pack leader and in the NBA the Lakers are the "pack leaders".lol

    I don't forsee the Raps pulling a win against this years Lakers. I think they are one of the best teams i've ever watched.

    Bargs is going to school Gasol. I don't really see how Gasol can defend the range of Bargs; will have 25+ point tonight.

    I'm expecting DeRozen to embrace this match-up against . Matched up against one of the Best and playing in front of his HOME crowd *should* up his game.

    I'm predicting after half-time the score will be.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    .....Cause last time DeRozen choked in front of his home crowd. I think he'll show some resiliency tonight! He's got a lot to prove!

    'Bout that time.. Raps are still in it, thanks.

    They probably won't pull out a win.. You can't just say the Lakers are playing badly, Raptors are just keeping up with them right now.. If it wasn't for the turnovers, we'd be winning.

    Edit: Well, we are winning, but I mean by a decent cushion.
