this will be a very tight game... not sure if that raptors can pull this one out... but they have been playing great so i will say the raptors win this one in overtime

Vince has a big game with 35 points
raps-97
pacers-94

Well I agree it will be close. I really have no idea who will win. Both of these teams can be guilty of a case of Dr Jykell/Mr. hyde syndrome.

I do disagree however that vince will drop 35pts...or anything even close. Artest is just the kind of player who gets into vinces head with physical man-to-man. I think the best thing vince can do tonight is drive the lane as much as possible and look to work the ball around. B/C what might win us this game is the other matchups we have. Jalen should be able to take advantage of a much smaller JT. And I'm hoping that Bosh and Marshall can take advantage of the poor perimeter defense of JO and Foster. Our big guys are better than their's when facing the basket, hopefully they won't kill us in the paint. Someone NEEDS to keep a body on Jermaine O'neil. Limit the second chance points and take advantage of our strength on the perimeter and we should win!

Are you living the past instead of the present? Thomas got fired in the OFFSEASON, and was replaced by Carlisle.

No chance for the Raptors. Write it in the books: Vince with 32 points, but Indiana wins 101-94

hmm, there's a verb missing there- i just wonder which one... could go either way, really...

anyway, i'm really excited for this game. i think the raptors will have a tough time playing against ANY team as long as they're without chris bosh, but playing indiana (with JO) promises to be especially difficult.

i don't know whether we'll win this game (since the pacers are the class of the east right now) but i think i expect it to be close. it seems like the raps are again on the upswing, even without chris, and that positive energy could conceivably last for several more games- including this one at home.

peace

Is Bosh back for this game? If not, then I think Moiso will be one of the keys to the game, gotta see how good a job he does on Jermaine on D...

I'm going to the game! Third game all season... the Raps' record at games I've been to this season is 1-1, and the Raps' record against the Pacers when I've been there all time is 1-0. So here's hoping!

Although the Pacers are my 2nd favourite team, I'll still be rooting fully for the Raps. :yes:

The raptors need a big win against a good team. im sick and tired of these 1 point losses to the elite teams. it's time to change our ways.

Carter probably won't play as good, Artest's D is too good unless Artest gets a few quick fouls....

if Bosh is back, Jermaine is going down (and I'm serious!)

should be a easy win.....I just can't find a reason why the Raps can't beat Pacers...
