I didn't lose hope after this loss. I lost it once we went 4-19. It's just too big a hole to overcome. I hope they prove me wrong, but the math shows it's unlikely.


There is still like a 25% chance I believe...especially if the Raptors beat the Bucks twice in their two meetings.

The two games against Bucks are also worth more than the rest of our games

It's more about Milwaukee getting JJ Reddick than that. Have you seen how far back we are of them,

Ya 5 games, potentially 4.5 after tonight with 2 games vs the bucks still. As long as we stay within 4-5 games back before the March 2nd game vs them(4 games between now and then), we should be in good shape.

Also,
J.J. Redick will come off the bench for the Bucks as Monta Ellis remains in the starting lineup, according to coach Jim Boylan.
This certainly won't help calm Redick owners who were already worried about him getting enough shots alongside Ellis and Brandon Jennings. We expect him to play somewhere in the 22 to 26 minute range while suffering a serious drop in production. It's also unclear if Redick, Ish Smith and Gustavo Ayon will be available to play Saturday, although it is likely. The trio still has to pass their physical before the they can suit up.

I'm not sure how Milwaukee beats 2 of the Hawks, Mavs, and Rockets.

Meanwhile, the Raptors play the Knicks, Wizards, and Cavs.

This is about to get interesting.

We are against Milwaukee on the 2nd game of a back to back.

Indiana is not going to give us easy time, and then we will have Milwaukee the next night. I am not sure how Casey is going to manage this, but I hope we can prefer enough and take at least one of those 2 games.

How can we be sure the JJ Reddick experiement will work in Milwaukee, it could have the opposite effect.

The pessimism on this board is too much

We are surprisingly a good team when it comes to back to back... I am hoping both nights we win..

Raps are 5 games behind, but just 3 wins.

Beat the Bucks twice, that's 3 games and just 1 win.

Based on recent performance that is totally possible.

we are only sitting 10th, and lately I am just so happy to finally watch a basketball team with a real chance to win every night, and something to play for other than developing rookies, giving a chance to D-Leaguers and showcasing Calderon.

Keep up the good work, Raps.

If we don't make the playoffs, it will definitely be because of those 4 games. no question about it.

And we'll give OKC our late lottery pick. Honestly I won't be that upset.

Only game that i can confidently say we might get **** up is the Golden State game. Indiana game will come down to possessions, and Milwaukee is also a vital game to which direction we go. By no means am i sleeping on teams, but i am confident we'll be neck and neck with them after these 5-6 game stretch.
