Its a case of same again for Vancouver Whitecaps. Air Jordan 13 Canada . After a successful switch in formation for last weeks home win over Houston Dynamo, Caps head coach Carl Robinson is expected to keep the same lineup for their match against Colorado Rapids at BC Place (Saturday at 3:30pm pt live on CTV BC). We have seen many good qualities from Robinson in his opening months as a rookie head coach, the latest being just last week when he showed a willingness to change. The Whitecaps had played his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation in the opening three matches, but needed to find a way to get the best out of forward Kenny Miller and also Chilean midfielder Pedro Morales. So Robinson made a switch, and the diamond midfield worked well as the Whitecaps won 2-1 against the Dynamo to keep their unbeaten start to the season alive. Theres little doubt about the star of the show last week - Morales was magnificent, especially in the first half. The Designated Player was everywhere, making the most of the freedom afforded him as a central attacking midfielder, showcasing his full range of ability, highlighted by his sublime passing. A cross-field ball driven between three Houston players was the top moment for me, but his first-time cross to the head of Andy OBrien, who then set up Jordan Harvey for the first goal, was very close behind. Morales is a difference maker that the Whitecaps have been craving for some time. He excites the crowd and makes those around him more effective. His influence on games will be key to deciding how successful the Whitecaps will be this season. Another big factor will be the depth of the Caps squad. They have assembled a quality group of players that gives Robinson plenty of options and will be extremely valuable as the season progresses. It also gives him the flexibility to change both personnel and formation within games, something he has already shown he is not afraid to do. One of the positives of the 4-4-2 diamond is that Darren Mattocks and Kenny Miller are both able to play in their favoured positions up front. Miller was less effective when playing wide as one of the three attacking midfielders in a 4-2-3-1, but his experience alongside the youth of Mattocks is important for the Whitecaps and against Houston, the partnership worked well. Other positives last week included a strong performance from goalkeeper David Ousted, more excellent work from young Argentine Matias Laba in his role as a defensive midfield destroyer, and solid displays from both fullbacks Jordan Harvey and Steven Beitashour. Everything seemed to work against Houston. Now the Whitecaps look for similar success against a Colorado side that is 1-1-1 through its first three matches. They have scored five goals, but all of them have been a result of penalties, four scored by Vincente Sanchez, and one rebound after Deshorn Brown saw his spot kick initially saved. Being awarded five penalties in just three games sets a new MLS record, but finishing chances from the run of play is something the Rapids have been struggling with through the first three matches (1-1 at New York, 2-0 win home to Portland, 3-2 loss home to Kansas City). Colorado are expected to play a 4-2-3-1 formation, but Pablo Mastroenis team will be missing some key pieces in Vancouver. Former Toronto FC defender Marvell Wynne is suspended after a sending off in the loss at home to Sporting Kansas City a week ago, regular left back Chris Klute is injured, and there is also a question mark about whether veteran players such as Sanchez and Edson Buddle will play on the BC Place turf. Colorado finished three points ahead of Vancouver last season, beating the Caps to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, although the Rapids exited at the first hurdle, losing their Knockout Round match against Seattle, 2-0. The Rapids have kept many of the same players who got them to the postseason. Spanish defensive midfielder Jose Mari is one of the new names likely to play in Vancouver as he returns from a one-match suspension picked up in just his second game in MLS as the Rapids beat Portland 2-0 at home a fortnight ago. Thomas Piermayr could make his MLS debut in defence after signing with the Rapids this week following a trial spell with the club. While most of the players are the same, there is, of course, a new coach. Mastroeni had a long and successful MLS career as a player and is now embarking on a new challenge. With two rookie coaches on the sidelines at BC Place, it will be an interesting tactical battle. The Whitecaps have equaled their best start to a season since joining Major League Soccer with eight points from their opening four matches, a win against Colorado would set a new high standard, and also lay a strong foundation ahead of back-to-back matches against LA Galaxy.

Catch all the action live on TSN at 7pm et and listen on TSN Radio 1050. Derrick Rose, who is nursing a sore right hamstring, is unlikely to play, according to Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. However, that was news to Rose Friday morning. "Theyre still leaving it up to me," Rose said prior to his teams shoot-around, refusing to rule himself out. "[Ill] go out there, see how shoot-around goes and if theres any tightness or soreness, theres no point to go out there and play but if I go out there and it loosens up, I think Ill be playing." The Raptors are returning home after splitting a two-game Western road trip. Following a heartbreaking double-overtime loss in Houston, they bounced back and defeated the Grizzlies, 103-87 on Wednesday. Toronto held Memphis to 43 per cent shooting and forced 19 turnovers, outshooting them 39-17 at the free-throw line. Coming off an atrocious shooting performance in Mondays loss, Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan were both efficient in Memphis. Gay scored 23 points on 8-of-18 from the field against his former team and DeRozan added 18 points, shooting 7-of-13. It was the first time both players shot over 36 per cent in the same game this season. Rose sustained his injury on a drive to the basket in the fourth quarter of Chicagos 96-81 win over the Cavaliers Monday. He has sat out of consecutive practices but with the Bulls off since the beginning of the week, the hope was that he would be able to return in Toronto. "Hes a little better," Thibodeau said of the former MVP. "If he can go, we want him to go. If he feels like he cant go, then we dont want him to go." Regardless of whether or not Rose is able to play, Dwane Caseys game plan remains the same. "Theyre going to be the same team," said the Raptors coach. "Theyre going to hit you in the mouth, punch you in the gut and just [play] smash mouth basketball whether he plays or not." Rose is averaging 28.7 points and 10.3 assists in his last three games against the Raptors, but hes missed the last five meetings and hasnt played in Toronto since February of 2011 after sitting out all of last season recovering from knee surgery. Trends and Tidbits Both the Raptors and Bulls are among the leagues top-five teams in second-chance points. Toronto leads the NBA in that category, averaging 20.2 points off the offensive glass while Chicago ranks fifth with 15.1. The Raptors are averaging 107.3 points, exceeding the century mark in each of their last three games after scoring just 92.3 in their first six contests. Theyre 2-1 on the season when scoring 100 or more points after going 16-16 last year. The Bulls are 28th in scoring, totalling just 92.3 points per game. Over the last three games, the Raptors are averaging 21.3 points off turnovers, while holding opponents to just 12.7 points off their own miscues. Chicago has committed 17.7 turnovers per game, third most in the association. Toronto hasnt had a record at or above . Air Jordan 13 Discount. 00 through 10 games since the 2009-10 season, the last year Chris Bosh played for the team. What to Watch For Move the ball For the Raptors, its pretty simple. Good things happen when they move the ball. After registering 10 assists in 58 minutes Monday, they totalled 11 in the first half of Wednesdays win. Gay and DeRozan set the tone early in that game looking to get their teammates involved and it was contagious from there. Everyone was getting easier looks and, as a result, they were more efficient as a team, playing their best basketball of the season. "The Memphis game was one of our [best] moving the ball," Casey said. "Were still trying to get that identity and maintain it, be consistent with it because any time we move the ball and pass the ball, it does create a problem [for the other team]. "Everyday we drill it," he continued. "We talk about it [and] we work on it, so its nothing new." Take care of home court The Raptors happily return home after playing six of their first nine games away from the ACC. Along with Cleveland and Washington, Toronto has played the most road games to start the season. While the Bulls havent missed a beat at home, where theyre a perfect 3-0, theyve struggled on the road to begin the season. They are winless in three games away from Chicago and are giving up 25.4 more points on the road (103.7) than they are at home (78.3). Chicago hasnt started a season 0-4 on the road since 2008-09. Who to Watch For Terrence Ross The Raptors bench was outscored by opponents reserves in each of the first six games but has bested the other teams subs in two of the last three. Ross is largely responsible for that turnaround, leading Torontos second unit in scoring in each of the last two contests. Over that span, the Raptors guard averaged 8.5 points and 3.5 rebounds, shooting 7-of-11 from the field. "Its becoming easier," the sophomore admitted. "Just [playing with more] focus basically. [Im] playing hard, really just paying attention to detail so I think thats a key thing thats going on with me right now. Casey has been impressed with Ross commitment and focus on the defensive end, which has translated to more playing time for the reserve. "Hes athletic enough he can make a mistake and catch up and make up for it," Casey said, calling Ross one of the teams better on-the-ball defenders but pointing to his improving weak-side defence. "You just dont want to make a living on that." Carlos Boozer Boozer has quietly gotten off to an excellent start for the Bulls, as Rose continues to experience highs and lows working his way back from the knee injury. The Bulls forward is averaging a team-high 18.0 points along with 8.3 rebounds, shooting 60 per cent from the field, good for the third-best percentage in the league. Boozer has scored 24.5 points and grabbed 11.3 rebounds in his last four games against the Raptors. Injury Report Rose is doubtful with a sore right hamstring for Chicago. Steve Novak, who has been inactive for six of Torontos first nine games with back tightness, is feeling better and is expected to play Friday.
