so yi plays the 4? bosh vs yi tonight? they'll probably switch bogut over... makes more sense to have yi covering bargs... even though bargs is much heavier (i think) not that bargs ever really tries to back anyone down in the post.
These are the games the Raps must win, even on the road. Obviously a weaker team. The Bucks won't be able to defend Bargs the way Boston did. Also Bogut isnt quick enough to defend Bosh and Bargs either.
Yi should foul out in about 10 mins.
The Bucks gaurd play will have to be very good for them to stay in the game.
The Raptors can and should win this one easily. The Raptors are playing great D to start the year and I don't see why it won't continue here.
A blowout would be nice since this is the first game of a back to back. Not that I worry about Orlando much (the Raptors are a better team) but it would be good to rest some players for that game. Hopefully Bosh doesn't have to play more than 25 minutes today after the 40+ he played vs the Celtics. He's not 100% yet and overtime games don't help the "easing him in" thing the coaches planned at the start of the year.
It'll be interesting to see how Bargnani plays Bogut or if he does at all. Last year early in the season Bogut badly schooled him for an entire half before the Raptors coaching finally realized they better put Bosh and Rasho on him instead.
