  • Game #60: Toronto Raptors 118 - Denver Nuggets 133


    ^^Looking at Pat McCaw Box Score..



    Back to work
    Thread Theme



    Throw it out, burn it, forget about it, that was a stinker in charlotte but let’s put it behind us. One of the few bad losses of the season. These things happen but we have a chance to redeem ourselves against a top western conference team at altitude.

    The Raps head out for their 2nd western road trip of the season. Last time we hit the west coast the boys were able to return home with a 4-2 record. This 5 game trip has 3 winnable game sandwiched between 2 tough opponents. Kicking the trip off with a big win could shape how the rest of the roadie goes. Matching up with Jokic without both our Centers is a tough ask, hopefully Serge is able to return in time for this one or else RHJ and Boucher are going to have their hands full with the leagues best center. Both teams are going to be motivated each coming off a bad loss, expect a high intensity back and forth playoff type game to take place with an early Sunday tip off.


    Starters-Going with a little guess work

    Raptors





    Nuggets







    Bertas X-Factor- TD has a chance for a psedo revenge game. The nuggets had him on their summer league team for 1 game before the raptors swooped in and grabbed him. If FVV is back his scoring may not be needed as much, if Freedy Sr. misses another one however we are going to need some bench buckets. Raptors totaled 9 bench points friday night. The team cant afford to get that type of production from the bench with so many main guys out. Look for TD to hunt down some early 3s and get the ball rolling late in the 1st.

    Honorable Mention-Serge if he plays
    To be the champs you got to beat the champs

    Tough game to win for Raps, away game at altitude. Hoping Jamal has a good game but we still win.

      Let's Go.
      Sunday afternoon games are weird but I like 'em

      Without Serge/Gasol/FVV the Raps are a middling team really and are going to lose to some azz teams. Added is Pascal has only been OK recently Kyle too. No idea why we see so much McCaw so I've stopped wondering. It's not like Nurse and Bobby/Masai don't see the same things so ....

          Watching Celtics vs Houston. Go figure, Houston can't make a 3...It's md 2nd quarter and they are like 4 - 18. Harden just nailed a 4 point play. Committed two driving fouls.

            I thought those were locations of CN railway blockades.

            Gotta snap that L streak. Let’s go, Bert!

              This is the sardine and onion sandwich game for both these teams.
              Both the Raps and Nuggets are looking to get the bad taste out their mouths from the previous outings.
              Denver got dummied by the Clips by 30 and the Raps.. well the Raps lost to Charlotte.

              Should be entertaining.

              Truly hope Serge and Freddy are ready to go to start the roadie and win the first one to set the tone for the trip. .

                Rockets seem to have found their range. Big third.
                Up three going into the fourth.
                Fuck Boston.

                          It’s true... Tatum missing the first free throw... then intentionally missing the second, Houston almost securing the rebound twice, only to have it land right with Jaylen, deep beyond the arc... and to have it go in on a string like it was nothing...

                          I went full Real Ghostbusters™️ Peter Venkman w/ Fright Features toy circa 1986.

                            I saw the Vegas line yesterday at some time to be even.. Now we're 4.5 dogs. Wonder if that means Serge will be out again? If we have to use RHJ and Boucher on Jokic it's going to be a loooong night.

                              It feels like we always play away to Denver at the end of these west coast trips, so maybe playing them at the start will be a good thing
