I think Parker will be more than ready to play D on Roy. Parker has been playing great, and I expect this to continue into Sunday's game and his D on Roy will be the biggest factor.

Bargnani should have a decent game too. With the lack of muscle and strength, he was no match for Eddy Curry and should have an easier job on D today, and I can see him scoring a lot as well.

Prediction: Raps win due to a very nice 4th quarter

We should put Moon on Roy this time. Roy absolutely destroyed Ap in the last meeting and because he handles the ball so much for them our defense was at his mercy.

Put on AP on someone like Webster, who he can handle, and let Moon use his length and Athleticism to bother Roy.

OR, throw different looks at him. He's the only guard threat so get the ball out of his hands by using AP and moon on him at different times. Unless of course one of them sucks chunks against him (goes without saying, hopefully)

Portland has a sexy record but I think the Raps got it this time.

Hopefully Smitch doesnt sit Bosh and Caldy for a long and critical stretch in the 4th Q like last time
