Wiz have been good lately winning 5 of their last 7 games. Should be a good one.

Should probably stop Martell Webster this time on those open threes.

John Wall will make a wall from the bricks he's going to be shooting. We'll be fine. Raptors win, Andrea is inactive with the Kleiza disease, the only way fans can't boo him.

What's up with all the "if you criticize the raptors, you aren't a true fan" threads lately?

They beat them with Iggy + gallo + chandler :/...
Feel like this is a trap game even if we have days off and its on the home court, I hope they've learned their lesson from the Sacramento game and take every team seriously without taking a day off and playing lethargical

I think the Wiz will come out and try to pressure the ball a little more this time instead of waiting till the game was almost over. Wall and Beal wreaked havoc on our ball handlers with their on the ball pressure.

this is home game, we have to take care of business.

we r 2-1 in 10 game stand, 4th of 10 games, we have to win this game

we seriously need to consider placing bargs on inactive list, if he isnt going to keep on giving 0 pt production like last 2 games.

we should have won that game against griz. also, we lost my 6 freakin pts, luckily we won by 2 pts against the knicks.

The Wizards are a dangerous team. They just took a dump on the Nuggets last night because this is all they do right now--try to ruin everything beautiful and appealing in this world. If a team has playoff aspirations, Washington will try their best to beat them.

fyi, tough for him to start racking up the points when:

a) he's usually the 4th or 5th option
b) he doesnt get any looks. He took 2 shots last game, 2. 1 was a mid range jumper, the other was a bailout jumper while being draped all over by Chandler.
c) his primary role now seems to be as a screen setter and nothing more.

Bargs just needs continue to play defence and not force the issue offensively, he'll never get the touches to rack up the numbers on this team. He'll just have to keep deferring to JL3 and AA on the second unit and bide his time till the off season.

As of right now, we're 4.5 games back of 8th.

Toronto Raptors
Monday, Feb. 25 ------- Wizards (Win)
Wednesday, Feb. 27--- Cavaliers (Win)
Friday, Mar. 1 ---------- Pacers (Win)
*Saturday, Mar. 2 ------- Bucks (Win)
Monday, Mar. 4 -------- Warriors (Lose)
Wednesday, Mar. 6 ---- Suns (Win)
Friday, Mar. 8 ---------- Lakers (Win)

Milwaukee Bucks
Saturday, Feb. 23 ------ Hawks (Lose)
Tuesday, Feb. 26 ------- Mavericks (Win)
Wednesday, Feb. 27 --- Rockets (Lose)
*Saturday, Mar. 2 ------- Raptors (Lose)
Monday, Mar. 4 -------- Jazz (Lose)
Wednesday, Mar. 6---- Clippers (Lose)
Saturday, Mar. 9 ------ Warriors (Lose)

If all goes according to plan we'll be 29-34 and in the 8th seed and they'd be 27-33 and 0.5 games back.
And that would still be with more than a month left of games, I think our chances are better than most people think.

People are still not convinced. But we're very lucky that the schedule is in our favor. I predict we'll kick the Bucks out of the 8th seed in 2-3 weeks.

Our last 10 games of the season are kind of hellish...we have zero room for slippage right now..

From here on, every game is like a playoff game....it's a must win.

Exactly how i looked at our schedule probability going. Crazy thing is, Mavericks are playing great basketball as of late.

Hope it pans out to our direction, only loss i can admittedly say we'll likely lose is GS game

We will lose more than one game, that's for sure.
But I don't see how the Bucks can win more than 2 games..

Only 1 loss for the Raptors would be great, but I see them losing to the Pacers this time. Granger is back I think...I don`t know if that makes the Pacers better or worst though since he`s been gone for awhile.

Bassy is having his best season in his career playing for the Suns and a pass first, shoot later type pg. I hope he backs up Lowry sooner than later. Co'z at this time, too many chuckers on the second unit right now. It was really irritating to watch how they play. Barg also needs to get touches we already know what he is capable of despite his weaknesses maan if he can get it going our team can be actually legit.
