    Damn it, Clutch! You're supposed to wait til tipoff to post this. :)

    I don't know about this one. The Raptors are missing Lowry and aren't playing well lately, but the Rockets are gonna be so short-handed and that arena has been a miserable place for them.

    Have some faith. All we need is Harden. Been that way all year.

    I see a lot of people expecting an L for our Rockets tonight. It's a B2B and the Rockets are going to be shorthanded to say the least.

    But...

    Toronto is 7-13 over the past 20 games
    Toronto is 5-5 over the past 10 games
    Kyle Lowry, aka their best player, is injured and likely Out tonight

    Toronto is a just an average team playing without their best player right now. Even with so many of our guys out, we still have the far more talented team led by MVBeard and Smith/Brew.

    We should take care of business tonight. We can't lose a game like this and expect to hold on to the 2 seed.

    I'm actually felling good about this one. Raptors are really floundering since they started the season strong. Dmo is back so we at least have some sort of big rotation.

    So once Dorsey fouls out before halftime.. how much burn can KJ see? I'd hate to see us overplay Ariza into the playoffs, although he's found his shot

    DMO isn't back. Dorsey/Smith/Capela is our big man rotation

    I'm know I'm probably reaching here, but one thing that might be in our favor is that by beating the Wizards yesterday, we gave them their 33rd loss of the season. Toronto only has 30 and is currently matched up with Washington if the playoffs started today. Since the Raptors won the season series with the Wizards(3-0), they're basically up 4 games in the loss column with only 9 left.

    Long story less long, Toronto doesn't have much to play for tonight other than the 3rd seed. And I'd wager they might not even wanna be 3rd since that would put them in the same bracket as Cleveland instead of Atlanta. So while I wouldn't anticipate them tanking tonight, they may also not be going all out to win.

    Probably not. Ironically that may be a good thing for the Raptors. They're 3-0 without Lowry against us since he was traded there. They're 0-2 when he plays.
