The pistons are one of the hottest teams in the league. i hope they can keep the win streak alive so we can try to snap it.

on a more serious note... this will be the toughest game for the raptors in a long time... Detroit is a team that plays within there boundries... they have bought into Larry Brown's system and are playing great basketball.. touogh matchup for the Raptors when you look down low... Ben Wallace and Elden Cambell along with Mehmet Okur will be a huge problem for the undersized raptors...

Hey KO maybe this is a good time to put MOISO in and give the kid a shot... with no AD down low we are going to look for Baxter to have a huge game against Big Ben... Our guard play must be steller in this game for us to win... Wen NEED at least 20+ points from Vince and Jalen and 10 from Alvin to win this one

I agreed with everything from the first paragraph of your post..but i dont agree with any of this^^.

1. Moiso is not a hard nosed guy..he wouldnt be able to do anything against the likes of ben wallace or elden campbell.

2. Detroit is not gonna score 100 points. We dont need huge offensive games from anyone we need them to keep playing solid D and for one guy to step it up in the 4th to seal the W.

220 points in their last two games.

They have just been playing great basketball lately. In their last 3 games against Houston, Dallas, and Chicago they've won by a combined 48 points. They are very hot right now.

Mugatu: "The Pistons are so hot right now."



This is going to be a tough game. We need Vince, Jalen, and Donny to have huge games. The only way to break the Detroit defensive system is to make good passes all game long. If we do our "one and out" jobs and our lazy pull-up jumpers, we won't be able to compete. Should be a good game to watch, though. An interesting storyline should be Mike Curry's play against his former team. Wait, did I say interesting? I meant boring. But still useful.

haha that is one funny pic... more like a gorilla actually, he was probably scratching his armpits after that dunk :laugh:

but yah are u guys forgeting this is actually a pretty good game for KO? It is his former team after all... I'm sure he'll want to win this game really bad. But bottom line of the game: Vince'll either make us or break us.

btw will Big Bosh Man be back yet?

I just meant that Detroit being such a great defensive team our "good" players like Vince and Jalen need to produce because it will be difficult for others to get invoved if they aren;t on there game

ya but new orleans front line causes way more problems then detriots because they're bigger and have a better post up game then detriot. i think the raptors are going to wake up for this game seeing detriot is red hot and all.. the raptors need to make a statement and this is the game to do it.

<font face="Trebuchet MS">There is no way that Bosh is playing, and if he somehow does then he probably will not start. Lonny Baxter will most likely start again.

Well, if Toronto wants to have ANY chance against this team, they better play with 100% passion and energy like they did on Sunday against Portland!

Do we have a chance to beat them? Yeah! I don't care if the "Bad Boys 2" Pistons are on a 9 game winning streak! Streaks can come to an end just like that! Don't be surprised if the Raps come up with one tonight!

Look on the bright side: at least this isn't the SECOND game on the back 2 back! Oh boy...tomorrow? :dead:

Oh yeah I just wanna add something else to what I said earlier!

Does anyone else but me feel that Toronto has a slight advantage since Kevin O'Neill was the assistant coach for the Pistons last season? I mean, he knows the Pistons like the back of his hand! He had a part in making Ben Wallace a defensive threat in the east! He helped the team make the eastern conference finals! Don't you people think that maybe O'Neill knows all the strengths and weaknesses of this team? Sure, there's a new coach, but they're still playing the same way they did last season! Nothing's really changed with this team!

it is reported that Bosh will sit out his thrird straight game.

come on moiso!!!! Bosh said he wants to be able to produce for the rest of the season... therefore he doesn't want to rush back

that could give us a slight advantage, but the Pistons got a whole bunch of players compared to last season plus a new head coach.

still, they did keep their core guys minus Uncle Cliff.

i don't really like to look at things like that.
