we're 5-19 now right?

out of curiosity(and I dont expect this at all for the raptors)

What was the biggest comeback in history for an NBA team that was down so much and came back to make the playoffs(I.e a team that started 3-22 or whatever and ended up making playoffs) Has that ever happened?

Time to go on another losing streak. Harden gonna go off.
“Andrea is not going to go 2 for 19 very many times this season,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said after the 111-106 loss. “The other night [in Detroit] he couldn’t miss. I’m going to ride with him come hell or high water.”

JO is 26 again :o

Let's trade the entire raptors team for the suns' medical staff.

:o Wow, he's playing much better than when he was with the Celtics. Funny thing is the Celtics actually need a guy like the current JO.

It's the Suns what else do you expect? They definitely have the best medical staff in the entire league and usually old guys that have a long history with injuries play their best in years without injuring themselves. Look at what happened to Nash an Hill when they left the team. One only played 2 games this season and the other still is healing from injuries, which didn't happen that often with the Suns. Hell, even Redd looked pretty decent with the Suns the past season. In my opinion they should try to get Oden to a minimum deal, that guy with be a beast on that team.

Not sure the numbers but they mentioned something a couple games ago about how only 1 team has come back to make the playoffs after a start like this, or something like that. Cant remember exactly what they said.

I think that was a few losses ago and now (prior to last night's game) no team at 4-19 has ever come back to make the playoffs.

Speaking of Suns medical staff, I'm curious how the Celtics would look with them.

Only example I think was remotely close is the Miami Heat in 03-04 who started 5-15 and came back to make playoffs

But you know, they had Wade.

Thanks, I'm sure you'll agree that his time in Toronto was too short. Would have loved to see him here longer.
Been following his progress in Phoenix, definitely looks like he's in a great spot coming off the bench behind Gortat

Agree, he has been tremendous so far. And I think he outplayed Gortat so far.

JO- 17 mpg - 7.5ppg 4.5 rpg 1.6 bpg 19.00PER
Gortat- 31mpg- 11ppg -8rpg -1.8bpg - PER 16

JO has been impressive.

And yep, his time in Toronto was short. And it wasn't his fault. It was Colangelo's fault for leaving us a terrible backcourt along with Moon at the SF position.

If only BC acquired a good playmaker, we would have been in the playoffs.

In 1996-97 season the Suns made the play-offs despite starting the season 0-13.
