    Default Is 4-19 so far fetched yet again?

    Based on Raps performance this week is 4-19 or thereabouts really that far off in the next month?

    Yeah, that's really unrealistic this is still a .500 team so at the least they end 10-13

    I think the confidence stems from a blowout over Utah. This thread stayed dormant for 2 days.

    Now with the win over Utah, 4-19 is unlikely. They'll have to go 1-15 over the next 16.

    However, looking at the schedule, how many games do you consider winnable? I bold the ones I think should be gimmes.

    That would leave the Raptors 8-27 before heading in to the cushy part of their schedule. At this point the season is long lost.

    So while 4-19 might not happen, I still don't think the .500 is realistic if you are looking at their record after 23 games or 35 games.

    Yeah, but other teams will have off nights.
    We'll be a few games south of .500, but nothing so ugly.

    Good point.

    But every weaker team I highlighted will likely come in to the game thinking it is a winnable game.

    How long do Chicago, Brooklyn, and the Knicks keep pissing away games?

    That is exactly the concern I have that Raps will be irrelevant by jan then will go on nice winning streak to screw up any chance at wiggins. If they are not at or very close to .500 by end of December it will be the same cycle all over again.

    winning more than 1 games places this team out of the top 5 picks, book it. Teams are serious tanking thi year. The NBa crated this climate, they push certain markets... the weak markets will always be tank builders. They have to.

    If they can finish bottom 5/6, that is good enough. In the end it is a lottery afterall.

    Utah might finish with the worst record but they are still going to be a 75% chance they don't get the #1 pick.

    We are 3-4, but I think going into the season our best case scenario would be 5-2. I still maintain that we will be just south of .500 by the end of November. Also, I'm betting on Derozan and Gay to get back to their historical shooting norms of .450-.400, that will get us a couple of wins by themselves, if they do that.

    If they continue poor percentage as per Houston game they have no chance of reaching those percentages.

    No need to panic guys. We will be on the fast track back to slightly below .500 in no time.

    You have the Raps over Charlotte as a gimme, yet in 33 games vs the Bobcats, the Raps are 17-16. The Bobcats have been historically inept against the entire NBA yet have always seemed to hold their own against the Raps. At this point, no games are gimmes for this team.

    That's because the Raptors have been historically inept against the entire NBA.

    lol also true. So maybe there are no gimmes for this team until further notice?

    All the gimmes for the Raps will be obvious once the games have been played, and not before.
