I have been ignoring this team for the past month-and-a-half and just saw the standings. As long as Bargs is out, we should be fine.

I created this topic before I heard about Jonas's injury. :(

Before the season began I did think we had a shot at the 8th spot. I don't feel that way now though because I did not expect atlanta, milwaukee, and chicago to be this much better than us. On top of that you have boston and philly fighting for a spot. THe only team ahead in the standing I see us overtaking is orlando

Yea, 6+ games is a lot. People actually expect us to go on 10 winning streaks and other teams to go on massive losing streaks on the other hand to allow us back in? lol

Not that I think that it will happen either, but I'm sure the same things were said in 2002.

It sounds plausible but some people dont realize that 6 games under is alot tougher than it looks, near impossible. It would have to entail another team or two nose diving, and the Raptors on a massive win streak to gain that ground.

So we have to win 6 more games in a row and hope another team loses 6 games in a row. Ye, lets discuss this if we ever get close.

Raps just need to get into 10th or 9th place. Give the draft pick to OKC and get that over with.

I hope bargs is out for the rest of the season. When he comes back its back to 20 game losing streak.

6-6.5 games...is extremely far back....
Thats like comparing the 3rd seed with an 8th seed...
Playoff is a big reach even with this win streak; but nice to see the team doing well.

That's like hoping our team starts a 12 game winning streak (not including these past 5) and hoping the other team stands pat.

I agree playoffs is a big reach, even with the win streak. This thread may have been a bit premature, but I was somewhat surprised at the standings.

Lately, this forum is how I am following the team. If they continue winning, I will probably tune in to the games more often. And post in the game threads. That said, my motivation has somewhat decreased with Jonas V's injury
