The first game is on the road Oct 30 in Orlando, in what should be a great game. Orlando is predicted to be one of the top teams in the conference. However, last-years rookie of the year Mike Miller is out for a few weeks with a leg injury, and just last night Grant Hill re-injured the same ankle he had two operations on. Will still be a good game.

Maybe, just maybe, its time again.

the raptors have apparently made a trade but nothing has been confirmed yet, i heard keon clarks name mentioned. i really hope we havent traded keon that would be a dumb move.

Man what a horrible performance on D and offence. Every shot was a long or crazy jumper. Its so frustrating watching this team sometimes. A. Davis must start to pick it up.

Got a big scare wit Carter going down as well. Turns out it was a bruise.

Maybe, just maybe, its time again.

i missed the game thank god, but i had a feeling we were gonna lose cause it really sucks starting on the road aginst a good team like orlando we should be able to pull it off aginst the heat tonight but who knows, i just hope the raptors dont start the season poorly and considering we have a very tough schedul early on its very likely.

In November, we play 10 road games, and only 3 home games.

If we get slightly over .500 after November, we will be in good.

Maybe, just maybe, its time again.

Raptors lose again not exactly the start we were looking for but we did start the season 0-3 last year so i have a feeling we will bounce back, we host the mavericks tommorow night at the ACC which should be a good game and hopefully the raptrs will come to play. after that we play 2 more home games then we go off on a tought west coast road trip which could leave us in bad shape going into december.

They still look very out of sinc. Antonio is crap. He did well in last years playoffs, but overall not a great player.

We have the depth, now our coach better learn how to use it.

Maybe, just maybe, its time again.

I didn't know this game was gonna be shown on TSN. So I watched MJ's return instead!

It's alright, it's alright.

As Marek pointed out. We started the season 0-3 last year. I'm sure we'll bounce back!

Hey, anyone know if they'll be showing any games on Raptors TV?

No. No games on Raptors TV.

Maybe when their current contract runs out with CTV Sportsnet, and when enough people purchase the station on digital.

Maybe, just maybe, its time again.

On Raptors TV they showed a reply of the Raptors-Maverics game.

It just ended. This was the raptors i'm used to seeing! We played like the Real Madrid of basketball. Very attractive. Carter-Peterson was awesome! Olajuwon was very impressive! Hec everyone played brilliantly! Don't forget! Raptors-Pacers 5:30 Eastern tomrow on Sportsnet Ontario.

well this was just one win so you cant draw any conclusions from this, Raps always perform good at home and give a good effort but when it comes down to facing some of the western opponents on the road next week then we will find out what the raptors are really made off cause i recall last year we did not fair so well on the road or against the west.

It was good. Definitely the bright spot this year is Peterson. Much more confident.

Hopeful we can go 3-2 before the long west coast trip.

Maybe, just maybe, its time again.

great effort last night with a definite improvement on D. vince found his shot and mo pete was too much ! that youngster's the key. if peterson can be effective on a consistent basis, we're mint ! give 'em time, we'll be firing on all cylinders when it counts in the playoffs and that's all that matters.

GO RAPS GO !!!
