Looks like I will be listening to the game on the radio.

The Raptors never lack fan support, consistantly one of the best fan bases every year despite terrible teams over the history of the franchise, it will be a packed house everytime a good Raptors team plays in the Air Canada Center. They practically sold it out when we were the worst in the league. Now with an exciting, young, good team - the place will be one of the most hostile environments to play in the NBA.

omg u guys have to pay to see the home team? Yikes.

Are you able to get NBA League Pass there? If you have to pay anyway might as well get the chance to watch all the games.

I somehow get Raps TV for free with Rogers Digital even though it's not part of our package.

And it's not a preview. Have had it for a couple years.

Raps gotta run with this opportunity. Even if Atlanta is playing well of late, you would hope they can get over .500 since God knows when. Besides, we have a bunch of good teams in Feb so get your wins now.

I hate these RTV games, lets pray that this crap doesn't happen next year. Damn MLE trying to take our money. 20 something games on RTV is brutal for those who don't have it.

Anyways, I expect a crappy game from Bosh with 40/20

Where did you guys get Parker from? I hadn't heard of him before this year and it seems like he has made a big difference.

Really?? I thought they lost twice already to them this year... although it's definetly possible I'm retarded.

EDIT: Just checked and forgot that one win I guess. 1-3 would still be unacceptable.

I think they did lose twice, but I remember Bosh going nuts on ATL and it being an easy win last time they played.

They did. The Raps are 1-2 against the Hawks not 0-3.
