Expect The Raps To Play Physical . Order From The Top.

Yes sir. Finally the series will turn ugly. OK . Not really ugly but Betty ugly as the NBA is strict nowadays. It is going to be 1/2 of how Eastside Story was in the old days. You know . The days of the Knicks and Heat complete with Jeff Van Gundy hugging Zo's leg (photo on the right). The days of No Harm, No Foul , the Jordan Rules , Rileyball and Detroit Bad Boys. Say what you like about the past 6 games , but these were more like beauty pageant .Yes, the 1st 2 games were low scoring but not because of scrapping and grappling. There were none of that . Today , the East play the finesse game. If you like physical basketball , one can find it in the Warriors-Mavs series. The players of both teams don't like each other according to Matt Barmes of Golden State. Like in game 5 , Jason Terry of the Mavs grappled with Warrior guard par excellence Baron Davis causing the latter's head to hit the floor.Every game in that series is like watching 2 pitt bulls fighting. In the Nets-Raps series , it's like 2 pitt bulls battling . Two stuffed toy pitt bulls. Soft .
Game 6 will be different if you are to believe Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo's statement to the press . First , BC said he had the whole team listen to Papa Bear Wayne Embry. The old time ex NBAer spoke to the Raps of his times as a former member of the Cincinati Royals and how they repelled the Barbarians at the gate during the medieval age. Kidding. Actually , Mr. Embry told the young Raps that there are many teams who came from behind in the past and won. Like the Celts during the time of Hondo Havlicek , he told the Raps. Then , Bryan said the team must play physical if they hope to win . You hear that Sam . The team should match their fans hatred for VC , RJ and to some degree J Kidd with some physical plays. Go to the Swamp and whack 'em Jersey boys . After all , Tony Soprano won't be there. The taping of the series finale was long time finito !

Papa Bear speech should inspire the young bears.That is if they don't buckle to GoldiNets early rampage!The game will be won in the 1st quarter.Sam should ask his boys to warm up early so they will not fall in the same predicament as in games 3 and 4.

I think Wayne Embry can do a better job of keeping Mikki Moore of the glass than Bosh. Seriously, Bosh needs to have a 35pt, 16reb type game for us to have a chance.

i dont know how reasonable it is to expect the raptors to play physical, when they havent played that way the whole season. and the only physical guy (garbo) is out.

bosh needs a monster game, and is due. if he does it or not will be determined in the first 12 minutes.

aahh Tony Soprano was there! That might be why Bargnani is allergic to the paint.

Sam's last sec play was tough to execute.The margin of error for that type of play was very very slim . No wonder , it failed.
Still, a good season for the Raps !
