I've noticed that these two players have been compared a lot lately, not for the similarities in their games but more along the lines of "who will be better in the future?" and stuff like that. These two are obviously two big men who have bright futures ahead of them.

Well, they play each other tonight head to head on national TV(TNT). So we should get to see how they compare against each other.

Leave comments about the game and the matchup.

Amare already dunked on Bosh, later spinned on Bosh went up and over him for the and1 from 8 feet that put Bosh on the bench with foul trouble.

Jake Voshkul is guarding Chris Bosh however most of the time.

Tough to say, it sounds dumb, but their really almost different players. Amare is more power and what not, and Bosh is about length. They both have good things goin for them.

Yea, Amare had that nice little jumper on Bosh. The Amare dunk wasnt on Bosh though.

Bosh also had that nice offensive rebound where he got it and upfaked and dunked after Amare bit on the fake. Bosh had that midrange jumper over Voshkuhl as well.

Amares got 7 pts, 1 reb on 5 shots. Bosh has 4 points, 2 rebs on 3 shots in a few less minutes because of the foul trouble.

Its been pretty even so far between them, other players are dominating the game.

There goes Bosh again. Amare draws another foul on Bosh.

It sucks that Bosh has to guard Amare and the Suns have the luxury of putting someone else on Bosh.

Toronto has nobody on the inside.

I think the Suns are simply more worried about other players more than Bosh.

It is not like Bosh will beat you.

Well, Amares not playing particularly well, and we havent seen much of Bosh because of fouls. Hopefully the 2nd half is more promising for these guys.

Joe Johnson and Mopete are putting on a show though.

Amare has missed his jumpers that he usually makes. Not really bad game.
He got 11 already.

Looks a little rusty and only had like 2 full practices in the last 2 month or so.

Considering hes playing against a frontline of Archibald and Baxter, he should be lighting them up. It wouldnt be a bad game if it was against Shaq and Malone.

Either way, not a bad game for Amare. Hes just not playing as good as he should be.

Amare needs to start getting better position down low.. he's missed 4 12 footers already.. Toronto's front line is so small, Voskuhl looks like an all-star out there.

Hopefully Bosh will stay out of foul trouble in the second half.

Maybe it is the headband. I remember Marion playing terribly everytime he wore a headband.
For example when Majerle retired and the entire team was wearing them.

Amare is missing an unusual amount of shots tonight that he usually makes even a lot of layups, looks pretty rusty still.

Though D'Antoni says it is because he hasn't practiced with the team which makes it tough because they play totally different than before Amare sit out.

Bosh looks very rusty as well. Hes not as involved or in rhythm as he was in the other few games I've seen him. I just realized this is Bosh's first game back since injury so it makes sense.

Mopete is on fire though damn.

Amare missed 2 straight layups at the beginning of the third otherwise he would be 8-15, 21pts right now.

Though this is worse than his usual games.

So, how does the world look with those blinders on?

haha, i see your later comments showed that you know Amare isn't god, so yeah, i'll let you off the hook. But you seriously need to be able to see that Bosh has just as bright a future as Amare.

this is definitely one of the bosh's worse games. he just came back from injury and has to guard amare...too bad this matchup can't occur when both are healthy and not rusty.

That offensive foul on Amare looked like BS. Way to get a player out of the game with his 5th foul on such a call.
