its tough our great season could be over and playoffs but i just have that feeling lowry and demar wont let this happen and i think amir and patterson will step up..for young jonas and ross i dont see them having a big game but i expect the older guys stepping up...i expect to see novak and landry more than previous 6 games..its time for older guys to step up!...i believe raptors will come on top!

Not even 10 AM and I'm nervous. I would of preferred to sleep until noon then just watch the ****ing game but my mom woke me up lol.

I honestly don't know if we win today, but win or lose, I couldn't be prouder of this team. Granted, I'll probably be in the heat of the moment/be upset if we do.. but this has been an amazing year.

Sly Guy

I haven't been wrong about a game by game prediction in this series, and I say we win this one. It was critical we got our feet wet in an elimination game even though it was a loss last time. This time, we've learned, and we will recognize the fact we've gotta put forward the effort right from the tip and not let off.

We've been the better team all along, and when we play like it, Brooklyn can't handle us. Now it's time just to do it once more and we'll be rid of them until novmber.

Judging by how this series has gone and how the Clippers game was officiated. This game scares me. If the refs let them play through everything and swallow there whistle. Then the Raps don't stand a chance. The Raps just aren't a physical bunch and don't know how to clutch and grab to slow down the opposition.

I really don't want Demar on JJ to start. Throw Ross on him and if he gets 2 quick fouls - so be it. It's not like he's done anything this series anyways. I could only watch the 1st half of game 6 but what I saw from Demar on the defensive end was a joke. Didn't fight through screens or even attempt to deny post position on JJ. Part of it was probably because he didn't want to pick up fouls but another part was because he just cant handle him.

I think it's the other way. If refs let them play then it's better for us. Calling fouls on everything kills our flow. JV gets into early foul trouble.

I agree. It's not that we don't play physical, it's that we don't know how to work the refs in a physical game yet. If the Raptors can just play a physical game without worrying about cheap fouls they might be able to actually raise their game.

They've fought through a lot this year. Let's grind this one out Raptors!!

They're scrapping but they haven't executed well.

Kidd realized that we can't guard JJ one on one and he realized we can't close out when he passes out of doubles if he has an extra shooter. We were only able to close out before because Livingston can't shoot so it was easier for our bigs to contest the weakside.

True enough. The guy is young and he's not seeing everything. There's a bit of panic involved.

Anyone notice the games we've sucked in also correspond to the new experiences this team has never had?

Game 1 - never been in the playoffs
Game 6 - never had a close out game
Game 7 - never had a Game 7

The other games were just part of the series and the Raptors had a chance to recover and improve. The Nets have owned all the games where experience is most important.

Yeah they showed some key replays of the Nets exploiting our doubles on JJ, both with a corner three and with a quick pass into KG in the post. They've been hitting 3s and that's been a big difference. We had to know they would not stay cold all series.

Honestly I think it's more about ball IQ. Can he develop that? That's going to be his biggest challenge. It's also the thing so many American guards struggle to improve upon. Their default has been individual play -- put the team on your back play -- whenever your team gets shut down.

It's hard for players to change the way they're hard-wired.
