I don't think this is a playoff team, but if it has a chance you will know in 2 weeks.

We are 5 games from 8th place and will now face better teams following this week. That 5 is quite a hurdle.


Dont look at boston, look at the bucks. They are struggling and play tonight as well as vs us on sunday


That struggle can be attributed to their difficult schedule since mid-Dec: http://www.basketball-reference.com/tea ... games.html

Except for the blunders against the Cavs and Pistons, they mostly lost to pretty good teams such as the Clippers, Grizzlies, Spurs, Rockets and Pacers. Within that time they also beat the Heat, Nets and Celtics. They're going on a roadtrip now but against so-so teams. More importantly their February schedule is the easiest of the season. It's not that case with us. I don't see how the Raptors can close the gap provided no crazy trades or injuries.

Return to Toronto Raptors
