  • Game #42 Raps at Rockets Monday March 22nd 9pm on SN1

    I know I've been around for a while.
    But I still think I'm one of the more hopelessly optimistic people here.
    But last night was the end.
    Yes, there are a bunch of caveats but after tonight there is only one more game on the eve of the trade deadline.

    In the words of Red..



    In what should be an epic match up tonight,
    we see the saddest fanbase up against, possibly, a sadder team

    vs


    I don't figure that one game against the Rockets in the middle of the season amounts to much in the grand scheme of things.
    But the optics of being the team to "break" Houston's losing streak would be pretty ugly.
    We have to travel across the country after a dispiriting loss.
    They will be hungry after blowing a game in overtime last night.
    The tea leaves are sketchy.

    So let's check in on how our Raptors are doing..



    Right.
    Well, what can we do to help them?
    Just give it everything we have.
    Because, with all credit to the valiant posters who stepped up,
    have we ever seen this in the Republic before?



    We haven't been pulling our weight.
    So here's a place to start.
    Show up tonight if you can.
    It could be the last game for a long standing Raptor wearing red..or white...or gold...or blue.
    It could be the last night of the GROAT.


    As always,
    Go Raps.

      The aftermath of the game and Raptor fans on social media going crazy would be entertaining though

        I don't know where it fell apart but since we are 17-25 that would mean we've played 42 games. So this would be game 43.

          This is clearly why the Raps have been in a funk!

          Here's the culprit.. Truly a game worth forgetting but also the last game before we started this terrible stretch by eking out a win against....the Rockets! It's fate!

          I said we should give everything we have so let me start by fixing that.

              The team that finally breaks the Rockets losing streak will be shown on sports networks across the friggin' country with Rockets players whoopin it up. IT BETTER NOT BE US or we won't see a decent free agent for another decade plus!

                This was the game thread we needed. Crazy to think this might be our last game with KLOE

                    Longest losing streak vs second longest. Today we either extend theirs or take the 'crown' of the longest streak from them.

                        Yeah but theirs is historically bad. Ours is just "oh hey look at that" bad. The Rockets haven't won since before the Superbowl.

                        Honestly this game scares me though. Just a weird matchup for us. Christian Wood is gonna be a problem I think.

                          The Rockets are getting healthy again. They have DJ Augustin listed as probable for tonight's game. Yes... THE DJ Augustin.

                            If we are still thinking of actually trading Lowry, he should not play in this game......same goes for norm.
                            Imagine if either had a season ending injury, just how sill that would look against the worst team in the league?
