    I'm going to go out in a limb now and say the Raptors will finish #8 in the East, win the first play-in game (over Brooklyn, I think), and will give Boston a very tough time in the 2-7 matchup. With Trent coming off the bench as a super-sub now, and Poetl solidifying their frontcourt, they seem very dangerous.

    Their games 80 & 81 are at Boston, and I'm very interested to see how they match up.

    For the fine he receives or the medical expenses for the back injury that could cause?

    Suns lose to the Thunder which should give the Clippers extra motivation tonight against us because they're only a game behind the Suns as of this moment.

    The Spurs came from being down by 24 points to beat the Hawks in San Antonio. If they are still playing like that at the end of the season it wouldn't take much for the Blazers to lose in San Antonio to keep their lottery position.

    Honestly I think he better 5 then he is 4. Defensely he not has quick has he use to be maybe due to his injuries. Not saying he can't play the 4 in some games but I think he find his nich at the 5.

    Not really. They’ve had A BUNCH of high draft picks and those picks are turning into good players.

    The potential of guys drafted in the lottery should be higher than guys drafted in the 20s. It doesn’t always work out that way, but the chances seem better if you make the right choice
