    He is playing over his head, like most of the Raptors lately.

    This game will be tough for the Rox, mainly because we just don't have enough bodies inside.

    They have JV, 2 Johnsons and Hansbro. while we have Josh and Dorsey.

    Their glaring weakness is T Ross, whose getting less FT and almost ranked in the bottom of the league, while our strongest defensive position is Ariza.

    This is the game will not be based on if Harden will score 50 to win it, it will be based on how do we counter their inside presence.

    So what you're saying is this is your fault. :|

    jk. you going to tonight's game? root hard for us h-towners if you do.


    I don't see how McHale can avoid playing Capela tonight. We have Smith and Dorsey and then...that's it. Come on McHale. Let the big guy get some minutes to clog up the paint and grab boards.

    How about this for a fun stat:

    Lowry ranks as one of just four players this season (alongside Paul Millsap, Trevor Ariza and Josh Smith) whose shooting percentage goes down in each successive quarter - per Marc Stein

    You only need one Johnson, and that's big Nick

    Anyone know where the Pap is? We could really use him for depth purposes tonight.

    I think Johnson and McDaniels might actually get some playing time in addition to Capella when we play extremely small and have Ariza at PF for stretches. I think we have enough versatility to match up but might be too gassed from yesterday.

    As one poster mentioned, please no Ariza at C. He has been rebounding and hustling well but we are asking too much from him.

    Pap hasn't recovered from an ankle injury as yet. I wish he was healthy too.

    Damn I completely forgot about Pap. He'd help us out tonight, but if everyone is healthy he probably isn't in the rotation.

    I think his timeline is similar to DMo's.

    Capela has looked like one of the more atrocious players I've ever seen in the NBA during his small window of minutes. Can't say I'm looking forward to seeing him against somebody like Valanciunas.
