Hmm... the Raptors have killed the Magic at home this season, but in the one game on the road against Orlando, they performed a massacred bigger than 50 Cent could ever dream of. This should be a tough one, but at the same time, the Magic were rolling during our last encounter with them, and now they find themselves in an uphill battle to get to the #8 spot in the East. Then again, the Raptors aren't in the best shape either. All I hope for is a close game, I can't stand to be embarrassed by these guys again, especially with the rivalry the two teams have.

I think the raps can win this one. The Magic have been struggling as of late and have had some team issues. Hopefully Bosh comes back strong after a sub par game tonight. The whole team should come in with a lot of confidence as they played a strong game against the best team in the league.

They gotta stop Howard as usual, the man is a monster in the paint. If they keep the ball in Francis' hands they should be alright, I know he had a good game against the Hawks but hopefully he'll shoot the Magic out of this one.

This is a must-lose game. The Magic still have a chance to catch up to Philly and we're neck and neck with New York. The Raps should be a bit weary from yesterday's game so I foresee a Magic victory, despite their injury troubles. I'd like to see another hard-fought loss for the Raps.

As much as I hate to root against the Raps, I second the motion!

:yes:

I was just about to say that,

Orlando is one of the teams tring to catch Phily for the #8 spot, if we want a lower pick we need Phily to lose (which they havent been doing recently) and other teams such as Orlando and New Jersey to keep winning (except when the nets come here on the 15th that one we have to win :D)

Considering the circumstances, I wouldn't mind a loss here. However, Toronto really got beat up last time in Orlando, so I'm sure they are going to bring the effort for tonight's game, much like they have for this entire road trip. Orlando has been struggling of late, and the fact that Jameer Nelson is out will make things even worst for them.
I am highly anticipating the match up between Bosh and Howard. Hopefully Bosh can end up on top.

lol... how much uCash did you put on this game? :D
None, I've only been in the vBookie forum twice in the past week?

Haven't made a bet... I'm tweaking the RPG, and hopefully DaBullz will be installing some other stuff we found.

Oh, I want the Raptors to win, as the Nets are chasing the Magic and 76ers. LOL

Haha we will beat them when they come to the ACC so I'm not too worried about it. I rather have NJ in the playoffs than the 76ers though.
Either way, as long as either Orlando or NJ make it instead of Philly, I'll be happy.

I'll be paying attention to the McD's game more than this probably, anyways.

But this is a game I hope we lose. Assuming Philly loses and New Jersey, and Orlando win, that brings them to within one game i think (i know it does for the magic)
