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.

Bargs does tend to be more aggressive and confident against other international players. It's like he's establishing his turf as the best young import.

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.

Raps 102

Bucks 94

Then again Im extremely Biased.

Bargs is around 270lbs this year. Yi is 235 at most...so we should get to see how his (Bargnani) post game is coming along if they matchup that way.

Yi weighs 246lbs. Not "235 at most".

- Yi weighs 246 pounds.

- Yi’s height is 6 feet, 11 inches without shoes. With shoes, Yi is 7-1/4, making him the tallest player on the Bucks’ roster. Bucks center Andrew Bogut is 7-0 in sneakers.

- Yi has a wing span of 7-3 ˝. That’s ˝-inch longer than Bogut’s.

- Yi has 3.4 percent body fat. Again, that is the best on the team. Michael Ruffin is second at 3.9.

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.

I've got to assume Bogut/Bosh will guard each other and Bargnani/Yi.

Mo Williams has sucked so far this year, but I think he'll bounce back tonight playing against his old buddy.

Damn, I guess I was going by his predraft weight. Still a advantage for Bargs, but not by as much as I expected.

Bosh and Bargs gonna run wild on the Bucks. Hopefully Parker bounces back and does a good job on Redd. At least the Boston game showed Bosh's conditioning is at least almost up to snuff.

He should do ok. He has his worst games against the Wallace/Mourning/Shaq type centers, and is usually able to play his game against the less physical guys like Bosh.

I think Bosh comes back strong and puts up 25 and 12 along with TJ with his usual double double and the raps win by about 8 or 9.
