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.

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.



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.

I highly doubt we beat the Lakers on the road...
That rarely happens for Eastern conference teams.
THe Pacers arent a sure-fire win either..
Ever since we took them out, they're playing like a team possessed absolutely destroying every team in their path..
Granger may be in the equation in the fourth meeting as well.


As for the Bucks...they're pretty good against the West.
It'll be interesting how they do..but they certainly wont go 1-9 in the next 10, Jennings/Ellis can will their team to a victory when they're on.and it happens like every 2-3 games

Besides the Bucks difficult schedule coming up, they may have chemistry issues with Redick joining and it will take time for them to gel.....

Cavs have no answer for Demar and Rudy, if they have big games expect a win.

You Toronto fans are so on top of things that I started to post about the Wizards. This game isn't even until Monday. Wizards fans on the Washington board barely get the game thread started before the games start. :)

Bassy for 45 with 19 assists. JL3 benched for remainder of season. AA traded to WNBA. Bargnani eats pasta.

I hope Wale shows up to bust a cap on someones azz.

Hi guys, I've been on vacation for the past week and a bit, and happy to be back to watch Mondays game, for some reason I strangely missed watching the raptors. I have a few questions, I heard that Ross won the dunk contest and we're 2/1 since the break (ps: f*** the Knicks! :D ), need to be filled in:

1) Good wins or ugly wins and bad performances by the other team?
2) How has the DD/Rudy/Lowry tandem looked?
3) Heard we traded for Telfair. Has he played yet? If so, good or bad?
4) Has Ross looked better since the break?
5) How's Val?
^EDIT^ 6) What's this business with Wale?

Thanks guys. Cheers

Im pretty sure Telfair is going to get some burn by Casey to see what he has in the 1st game. This would be a good time as any to see that if Bargnani gets more touches and if he does, does something productive. This is going to be a tell all tale for Bargnani this week honestly. If it doesent work out after the week, hate to say it, but we might have to consider a $10 Million bench warmer. Small Ball isint Bargnani's forte but they are still trotting him out there, they really want to help him. Acy is lying in wait to take Bargnani's minutes and role in the 2nd Unit Small Ball lineup.

Because the Wizards aren't looking for anything logical, like playoffs. They can't be understood, bullied, crushed, or reasoned with. Some teams just want to watch the NBA burn.

I was a lot more scared of the Wizards when they had Nick Young.

Return to Toronto Raptors
