They need to start playing to their strengths. We don't have a legitimate center right now. We're better off just playing Bosh at the 5 and Charlie at the 4. Mo Pete and Graham on the wings, and Mike James at the point.

Key to the game? Keep the opponent from scoring 30+ in the first quarter. :sour:

Hopefully the Raps can finally chalk one up in the win column. I think this is one of their best chances, in the past we've faired decently against the Celts, but then again that was back when VC used to be the old VC. I expect a big night from Bosh, and there is no way Jalen is gonna be held scoreless again.

Also looking forward to my stay here. Big Raptor fan checkin' in.

I fear that now teams are gonna play us like we're SanAntonio, in fear of being the first team to lose to the us, just making it harder to get that first win.

We might stand a chance tonight. Ricky Davis and Pierce should have their way tonight with our shotty defense, but IMO the difference maker will be Raef LaFrentz and/or Al Jefferson. As we all know, we are great at making half decent big man look like freakin Shaq out there.

Where do you get your stuff?
I want some.
The Raps aren't going to hold any team under 90 pts. No ****ing way.

Nice to have optimistic faces here, though. =)

We have a good chance of winning tonight, but we cannot wait for the other team to motivate us by pulling ahead. We need to come out ready to win and play to win throughout the game. I hope we do.

Yeah, but I think that 1st game against the Sixers when Webber went like 5/5 in the first Q woke something up in Bosh. In the 2nd game he was much more aggresive defensively and CWebb didn't get many open shots at all. Bosh should be trying to prove to everyone who watched him get burned by CWebb that he's not a bad defender. Hopefully he'll shut LaFrentz down tonight.

Bonner starting again. Hopefully the boys can get out to a better start.

Scoreless so far. Bosh continues turning it over on drives and Jalen stays cold.

Bosh has to start getting to the line a little more. Use those fakes.
