    DeMar DeRozan
    Norman Powell
    Serge Ibaka
    Jonas Valanciunas

    Toronto is 4th in ORTG and tied for 2nd in DRTG. They sit 1st in the East, 2.5 games up on Boston, with 1 game in hand.

    Possibly lost in DeMar going God-mode tonight is that Norm was the second-leading scorer on the team (17 points on 7-12 shooting). If OG is still out we're going to need him to have another big game
    The name's Bond, James Bond.

      Man I hope OG is back with fresh feet and Ibaka is well rested!

        Serge getting kicked out is a huge blessing. He's going to be fresh for Houston.

          Would be a shame if OG is out as he's the one guy we really need for this game. I hope the Raps find their 3 point shooting for this one and use JV and Jak to punish them inside. I still feel that Houston is inferior to Golden State by a significant margin and are much easier to defend. Unless they are hot or the refs are gifting Harden. Raps have a good chance.

            OG, powell, DeRozan will be guarding Harden I'm guessing

              If Powell doesn't reach or gamble he should be able to do a decent job on him

                This is a must win to shut up all of the US Media.

                  Posted this game winning dunk by Vince against Houston at the end of the last game thread.
                  Had to add here as well.

                  (I like running them both at the same time for the sweet double audio effect.)

                  Get up for this one gents. Let's get this W.

                    I think I'll be paying closest attention to the Lowry/Paul matchup. It's been a while since we've seen KLOE own a marquee PG matchup.

                      First Raps game I've been really excited about since the Celts were in town a few weeks ago. Will be a great test. Fuck all of the "it's just a regular season game" garbage. It's not. Raps already put Cavs and Celts on notice. Time to do the same to the West.

                              The Ringer with yesterdays games, with our win the lead story . Also later the Ibaka "foul" that led to his ejection.

                              If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.
