    Key Match UP


    Jose Calderon v. Kemba Walker

    MHC TAKE:

    Tonight the Raps look for their second straight win when they host the Charlotte Bobcats at the ACC. Toronto is coming off an impressive win against the 76ers as they were missing 4 of their bigs (Gray, Kleiza, Bargs & Jonas) and guard Terrence Ross. The Raptors will likely be short handed once more and need Amir Johnson to avoid getting into foul trouble or Acy may be in line to see some big minutes. Toronto will be looking for some payback after dropping a game to the Cats earlier in the season on November 21st by just one point. The Bobcats have won 10 of 13 against the Raptors and had posted three straight victories at Toronto. However, Charlotte is just 2-22 in their last 24 games after having an 18 game losing streak earlier in the season.

    Lets go RAPTORS!!

    Seems like Charlotte has beaten the Raptors a lot recently. Hopefully we can get this one, but I wouldn't be surprised at a loss.

    Also, I think Fields probably starts again. Ross participated in shoot around and could be good to go. Lowry will contain Walker a lot better than Calderon tonight.

    I agree Daouds...Fields likely starts again - has played well the last few games and in my opinion has earned the start. Calderon will start, but I think Lowry will see more time tonight if he can be patient with his game and include everyone. He is a better defender than Jose for sure, and we'll need that on Walker.

    I hope Fields can keep MKG off the offensive boards. Seeing how the Cats have been playing this should be a winnable game for the Raps. Mullens is out as well which will be a big help for the Raps.

    I'll be pissed if we lose this one since it seems we always lose to Charlotte.

    Definitely a game that the Raptor's need to win. I'll be cheering at the ACC. I look forward to seeing MKG and Walker live. I always enjoy watching players I've never seen live.

    DeRozan excels against inferior talent (as most players do). Should be a strong game for him. I voted him in the poll.

    Taylor is going to be all over DeMar. It was a tough choice but I went with Anderson against their bench.

    lowry is the better defender but has anyone noticed that opposing point guards go at lowry much more than calderon because lowry gets into them and jose sags off making lowry the one who gives up more points
