    But Towns is going to have another field day.

    I only show respect to Raptors, cool ex-Raptors, and Canadians. Everyone else is the enemy!

    Especially if we gameplan for Scola to defend him again.

    A trap game ? Looking ahead to the Lebrons ?

    A revenge game ? The raps make amends for the steamer they laid vs the T-pups as they seemingly focused more on their travel plans to the Bahamas during the ASG break than on Minny and lay a beatdown on Wiggins and KAT?

    A BAU game ? Another one of 82. This one in late February at home against a team they should win against on talent alone ?

    A beating a team you should beat game ? Raps win by 11 and the crew at RR analyses the minutiae for 25 pages that includes but is not limited to Scola's overall effectiveness, DD's shot selection (a given), whether or not MarkiefMorris would have made a theoretical difference if he was a get at the trade deadline, Caseys rotations/substitution patterns, when Casey calls timeout and the colour of his tie vs the suit he has on , the +/- effect on JV of the halftime coach interview by Eric Smith, Biz's lack of offense .... How soon we forget the eye gouging teams of 4 years ago and the only thing to look forward to was if we could get a starter at the 9 slot in the June draft...

    Raps win.... Sooooo looking forward to the Friday game vs the LeBrons...

    Too much pride on this team to be swept by the wolves. It will be a close game. None of our Bigs can match up with KAT. Raps still win 102 - 95.

    But not enough pride to avoid a sweep by the Nuggets?

    Still sour as green apples after that Wednesday when they beat us. The team just finished a 2nd qtr and stopped giving a shit. Not going to blame the refs, even if they did do a shit job. I didn't toss my TV out of the window because Andrew Wiggins contribution was the reason they beat us.

    Time to get some revenge. A three game winning streak heading into the Cavs game would also be nice.

    The Phil Jackson definition of an elite team is winning 40 before you lose 20. We have to go at least 3-1 in our next 4 to get there.

    Beat the Wolves, Pistons and Jazz and lose to the Cavs - that seems doable.
