I was wrong last time, picking A-Train to match up with Zo.

I'm going to project again. Bosh knows Thomas' game very well (good friends, workout partners in Texas). Marion is an undersized power forward.

So I'm giving Charlie his first NBA start in this game.

Jim Jackson? It's either going to Diaw or Jones at SF, sliding Bell to the SG.

Even if Charlie does light up from downtown, theres no way 25 get hucked up.
5 from Charlie
5 from James
5 from Mo
3 from Jalen

And thats pushing it, sure James put 9 up against the Heat, but it wont happen again.

nah, i think Sam will go with Hoff on the road.
i htink that sam is goin to bring C-villa off the bench cuz he bring sin so much energy good 6th man, so who does he start then the line up will be like this

pg. James
sg. Rose
sf. Mo Pete
pf. Bonner
C. Bosh

but since we are playin th esins and they play small ball i woul dlove to see our starting 5 like this

Pg. JOse
Sg. James
Sf. Rose
Pf. Joey GRAHAM
C . BOsh

i htink that with marion at the 4 our 4's wil be in a miss match all night i dont think CV is quick enough yet to play th e3 so he will be a lia billity againt marion same with Bosh (defense) so why not start Joey there since joey played the 4 in college he wount be at a size disadvantage and he is quick enough and strong enough to play inside against an under sized 4 this would be our best line up against the suns i htink

Ride the wave generated from the Heat game...

Suns have virtually no interior presence on the offensive side for obvious reasons, so they'll more than likely look to their perimeter game 9 times out of 10.

Really have to hope Nash doesn't get his shots falling, and then really restrict the rest of the Suns bench, namely Diaw, Jackson, House and co. Barbosa out will hurt them, considering the perimeter firepower he provided them prior to the Manu flop incident. Restrict their bench from contributing to the scoreboard and we're looking good.

Be interesting to see if we go lock-down on them or try and beat them out score for score. Either way, we can't afford to go cold from the perimeter.

This should be a tough one.

We'll need Charlie V to shoot better this game. Rose will need to show up too, hopefully he can maintain his form from the Heat game, time to break out of the slump. I'm expecting huge games from James and Bosh.

If our shots aren't falling, we are going to be in a serious world of hurt. I think we definitely need big games from James, Jalen, and Mo to stand any chance. Even if Hoff starts, I have a strong feeling he is gonna sit the rest of the game and Charlie is gonna be in there due to the pace of the game and the firepower we are going to need.

I think this is winnable, but in reality I say the Suns go for 120 due to Toronto's lackluster D.
