    Prediction

    - 99
    - 91

    This game is far from being a "gimme", but I'll be pretty disappointed if we can take advantage of the injury depleted Celtics or as Arsenalist likes to refer to they as ... the C**tics.

    BTW, I haven't heard an update regarding Hedo yet so I still have him in the starting five and if his status changes I'll edit the line-up.

    Forget it, I just read that Hedo is out today after all.

    The Raptors are beaten up, too.

    Hedo Turkoglu (knee) and Jose Calderon (hip) won't be available against the Celtics, forcing coach Jay Triano to alter his rotations.

    Toronto has been getting by with Jarrett Jack and Marcus Banks handling point guard duties, but Antoine Wright, who lost his minutes to the more athletic Sonny Weems when Toronto began its recent hot streak, will get an emergency start in place of Turkoglu.

    Tony Allen looks a LOT like Paul Pierce in the Who's Hot section.

    Gurk, since when did you become so pessimistic? That's my job.

    Anyhow, continue predicting
