    Don't forget to vote for the winner at the top of every game thread.

    OK guys and gals, tomorrow night we take on the other team which all of the NBA have already written off in the Cavaliers. But based on their performance the other night versus Beantown, this isn't going to be a cake walk for the Raptors. Antawn is coming off the bench and apparently isn't happy. Mo Williams will be a game time decision because of a nagging groin injury. So in their absences (aka limited time for Antawn) players like Sessions, Hickson and Boobie Gibson have stepped in their place. Should be interesting tomorrow night at the ACC.

    Varrejao might not play, his dad is having heart surgery and he's been excused. Afternoon decision.

    Raptors better win, I've got my tickets to the game! Cleveland did just beat Boston though, hopefully they spent a lot of energy in the process...

      Thanks Mack. Didn't see that earlier. I'll tweak the line-up then.

        I voted for Cleveland because they're schooling everyone in my nba2k11.

          After looking at that lineup, I am thankful the Raptors are not as hosed as the Cavs.

          The problem with them is not just that they suck. Heck, if they keep playing good defense, they might get a playoff spot. The problem with them is that they suck and they are OLD. Old, old, old and crappy. Poor bastards.

            Under Cleveland's Bench it says "Graham". Would that be a Joey Graham or a Stephen Graham? Or is there a triplet I don't know about?

              That's Joey, Mack. As if you can't tell the difference between him and his brother.

                Hey, if Varejao isn't starting, who's gonna take his place, Hollins? LMFAO.

                    Thing we need to do to win
                    -------------------------

                    Kleiza needs to play better, hit open shots and stop turning the ball over.

                    Bargs needs to shoot some more jumpshots/3s.

                    Defend the perimeter, if we give up 9 3s again we are doomed.

                    Make free throws! Especially late.

                    Amir needs to stop taking retarded fouls.

                    Weems needs to shoot better.

                          hahaha i know ive started my day right when ive read your post heinz

                          i think the raps are going to win this one, but they shouldnt take the cavs for granted because they still have dangerous players.

                          if we win tonight, we'll be tied with the heat and celtics. who wouldve known.....

                            Serious? You actually lost? HAHA. In my My Player I got drafted by Memphis 25th. I restarted because my earlier PG got drafted by the Spurs 20th, but I was 5'10 and they kept on playing me at the 2 and 3. I was matched up for 20 minutes against Rashard Lewis in one game. But now Memphis is funner, I'm a SG, 6'4 and I get time at SG and PG

                              LOL.. i wont say the it was ME who lost.. but by the time i got subbed in, we were already down by 14 towards the end of the 1st, and bargs was lighting it up.

                              miami is messed in the game though, i'm a 6'3" SG... and they've given me time at every position except C. trying to get your teammate grade up when you're a guard defending KG is impossible

                              i debated restarting the second miami drafted me.. but you get a TON of open looks on that team
