    Prediction

    - 105
    - 90

    There likely will be some game time changes. Right now as it stands we might be playing the Pistons sans Prince, Gordon and Hamilton. Rip will likely be back and Gordon also stands a good chance to be back in time for Wednesday night's game. Here's hoping their not though.

    Detroit will be playing in the second day of a back to back. They face the bobcats on tuesday in Charlotte i think, a game that is expected to be a close one. If hamilton or gordon return, i think it will be against charlotte and i doubt that both of them will play against us. I think it'll be the first time of the season that Toronto has three days of rest right? we should win this one. My prediction, a Rapotrs win on wensday and sunday and then another win against charlotte. Make it 5 in a row for the raps

    Rip and Gordon are apparently game time decisions tonight too:

    Gordon and Hamilton, who has averaged 19.9 points during the home win streak over Toronto, will be gametime decisions. Prince is expected to miss his 26th straight game.

    I've been watching a fair bit of the Pistons lately and they're in pretty bad shape. They've run out of gas offensively and need to get at least one scorer back to balance out the offense. Too short handed to be a serious threat right now.

    The Raptors should get a win tonight if their main guys (Gordon, Rip, Tayshaun) are still out.

    Big thing for Detroit is how well do they contain Hedo Turkoglu. They can live with Bosh having a big night but Turkoglu is the danger man because he will create a lot more open looks for others and get numerous players involved.

    Jerebko's defense on Hedo, and Detroit's PnR defense against Hedo, are keys for them.

    Good game tonight. Raps did agood job on D but they need to improve on the glass. Raps will lose the next game if they don't get on the glass. Pistons were coming of a back to back, that also helped the Raps. Player of the game is Bargs for the offensive spark and Hedo at second for being the assist man tonight

    Great game! Man I love watching tha raps blow out an opponent! Even if it's against a depleted team haha. 11 assists from hedo was very nice. The young gunnas were at it again! 28% opp. FG % is just ridiculous. Hopefully Det is without their stars again on Wed.
