So it's official?
Bosh isn't playing?
i dont see a reason why we should play him, he has played through a lot and back injuries can come back to nag players (baron davis) also we are pretty much out of the playoffs so why not give Sow some extra minutes

realistically if we dont have bosh we aint gunna win and even wiv him i still think we wud lose. the pistons are on a roll defensively so watch them really cut down the raps scorin expect pistons 88 - 74 raptors scoreline. hopefully he leaves hoffa to bash wiv big ben in the paint for longa than 6 mins. and give sow sum mins the kid deserves a break!!!!

The Pistons have been really playing well in the last 2-3 months.
This game is going to be tough with or without Bosh. (Game time decision)
I still think that we'll be able to keep it close though.

The Pistons are starting to get into playoff mode, they know what it takes to get to the final and are playing like defending champs! Toronto will not be able to steal this one with or with out Bosh.

The detroit starters are playing very well and they are getting some good contribution fron Aroyo and McDyess, they have also brought back Cambell to play and take some fouls against the likes of Shaq.

I would love to see the Raps pullit off but it just is not going to happen, right now I am closely watching the Sixers to see where our draft picks will be.

Jeez you guys are negative !!!!!!!!

The Raptors can win this game if they take at least 30 3-pointers and sink 60% of them.

So let's get more positive about the Raptors as they make a run for the playoffs ..... sheesh ..... !!!!!!!!!!

Well, if we win, great; if we lose, that helps the draft position. Maybe the Pistons will take us for granted...
Donyell looks fat in that picture.

Bosh should sit this one out, it's no use playing him when the season's a wash. But either way I don't see us winning this game, without Bosh, with Bosh at 70%, or with Bosh at 100%. The Raptors are on the road and the Pistons are playing great ball lately. This is a great game to use to improve our draft position.

Very astute of you Bud_Boy to advance the strategy of tanking to improve the Raptors draft position. That's what I said a few days ago and the teen tribal honkers were all over me, crying that if the Raptors didn't try to win then their lives are not worth living. Some childish fans need to have the hope of winning or else they cannot bring themselves to watch. They refer to the Raptors as "we" as if they are part of the team. Pa thetic delusion ... !!!

There is a tread on how the Raptors will stand at the end of the season. The posters gave their win-loss predictions, but they ignored being specific on the exact wins-losses for the last 18 games. Did you read that thread and if you do could you provide us with your game by game prediction??

Udaman .....

It is one thing to actually try to win and end up losing, then be able to look at the bright side of increasing our draft position.

It is a totally other thing to suggest that the Raptors will wave the white flag and play to lose like you did.

:yes:

Couldn't agree more.
Yes Detroit has been playing some great ball, which means that we don't have to tank anything to lose this game.
Sam Mitchell is going to have the guys prepared for this one, with or without Bosh.
Are the Raptors likely to win this one?
Of course not, but I know that deep down inside, each and every one one of you are going to be watching, hoping that they do.
