raptors Vs. pistons

Tough call. Detroit is tough this year. They have a good team but if the Raptors play the way we all know they can, it's possible they could go all the way to the east final. They won't be gettin' by NJ however.

In a word, and with respect to Gorilla Monsoon, this series will be a slobberknocker. Two very phsyical teams who don't particularly like each other will make for low scoring high intensity contests.

The Raptors have simply been on fire over the last stretch and go into the playoffs playing playoff calibre basketball. I think if Childs is healthy and Olajuwon shows that he's been saving his best game for when it counts, the Raptors have a chance to take it.


The Raps have a team of veterans who have tasted the playoffs before and know how to win. They are playing great defense and are taking much smarter shots on O.

Raps in 5!!!!!

Hmmm...

I think Detroit has a lot of secondary players steppin up for them, like us, but... Their players are gonna choke, and everyone will step up for the raps, and its ova in fowah.
Bookah!

this isn't the era of dumars, rodman, zeke and lambier with chuck daly calling the plays. yeah this version of the pistons is decent , with ben wallace playing like a man possessed and STACK scoring his 25 per game but they are by no means unbeatable.

AD, Childs, Williams, MoPete. JYD, and the centre duo of eric montross and hakeem olajuwon will get the job done

i have been so impressed with JYD lately. so under-rated. he's such a tough player when he gets in the grove and gets a chance to play

SHUT YOUR FUCKING PIEHOLE BEFORE I COME OVER THERE AND MAKE SURE THAT DISCO STU DOESN'T "ADVERTISE" FOR THOSE ASSLIKING PISTONS ONCE MORE.

You're treading on thin ice, friend, I'm one empassioned woman when it comes to the raps, I cried in my car listening to AD address the crowd at the ACC tonight.

SO SHUT UP OR TAKE IT ELSEWHERE

What did he say?
thanked everyone for sticking by them during that awful -17 run...

Good luck to the Raps...they could go far if they keep gelling and putting up a solid defence...

I hope Carter chills till next season...it will be good for the team to attempt this without...will build character for the rest and prove that they can score without him.

As for Detroit...if you hold down both Stackhouse and Wallace then there is every chance.

The Raptors joined the 1996-97 Phoenix Suns and the 1976-77 Chicago Bulls as the only three teams in the history of the NBA, NHL and major league baseball to endure a 13-game losing streak and still advance to the postseason!

Holy shit what a game! The crowd at the ACC was so loud (and I was watching on TV) - and I'm so fucking happy for them - despite the naysayers and cynics out there.

Bring on Detroit - it'll be a tough and physical game, and we may not have a Ben Wallace on our team, but so what? 14 games ago we wouldn't even have IMAGINED making it to the playoffs without Vince.

Anything can happen, my friends. ANYTHING can happen. :)

I have a feeling he'll be a big factor in the series....but hopefully the Raps can pull through. You never know, with the playoffs - it's a whole different game.

Can't wait...
