Default Wizards@Raptors GT (7:00 ET)



Gilbert Arenas and the Wizards come back to the ACC tonight after taking a lead in the Eastern Conference standings. Raptor's are going to try and get back to .500.

Starters

TJ Ford, Anthony Parker, Jorge Garbajosa, Chris Bosh, Rasho Nesterovic
Gilbert Arenas, DeShawn Stevenson, Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, Brenden Haywood

Key Matchup



Tj Ford returns from an ankle injury tonight and is expected to start. Gilbert Arenas despite 33 points, was pretty much contained in the 2 teams last meeting due to his dislike of afternoon games.

Raptor's have to duplicate the defensive energy they had the last meeting and hope the Wizard's supporting cast has a cold night. Antawn Jamison or Caron Butler have to step up if they want to win this game because Arenas is going to be doubled early and often.

jamison won't be playing AND they're on the second game of a back2back.

raps have the edge but wizards have been playing amazing since they're rough start to the season...

we have the homecourt, i think we can pull it out.

And as far as the game is concerned, the raptors CAN pull it out, but it worries me that Gilbert is probably gonna be looking for revenge after the last meeting.

I hope Gilbert forces it cause if we play him like we did last time, he'll shoot 30%.

It's really up to Butler to play well because he'll not only get good looks, but will be able to free up Arenas a bit if he's scoring. Haywood didn't do much last game like he usually does against us and if that happens this game, I can't see us losing because getting dominated in the paint and on the boards was our main weakness against the Wiz the last few years.

The Wiz can't stop us on offense so it's gonna come down to our defensive strategy and intensity.

I hope Arenas doesn't get 15+ free throws again. We kept bailing him out last game.
