    Hollinger's playoff odds has been predicting we'll win 50 games for the last week and a half, so I'd definitely say it's possible. Heck, we even "won" 63 games in on of his simulations (he runs 5000 every night). A LOT would have to go right to hit that mark though and I'd be happy with anything 48 and over.

    No way raptors win 50+ this season, as much as I'd love to watch that transpire..it just isn't happening. Last year 7 teams won over 50 games and if the warriors and blazers never hit the 50 win mark, there is NO WAY the raptors can. Maybe next year (lol RIGHT....like every other year).

    if the raptors couldn't beat the celtics after they traded away there "starting point guard" crawford......they ain't hitting no 50. I swear i wanted them to **** so bad which they looked like they were going to do from the on slot, 6-12 okay. I got in the mind frame of being happy, every time they lost but ever since then they started winning and got me excited and emotionally invested in the team again. And what happens.......god damnit, right when you think there gonna roll on a shit team, they fold..........classssiccccc raptors, different players, same old bullshit.

    Look, that game was crap. But even great teams have bad games, even against terrible competition. The same night, the Heat got blown out by Washington. They bounced back against MIN. Let's see what they do next before writing off the season.

    I really don't see any correlation to the Warriors w-l record and ours. They both have much harder schedules than we do, and play in a more competitive conference. Them losing games in no way impedes our ability to win games. I can't see us winning 51+ but I think 50 wins as a realistic best scenario is just about right. I really don't know how to predict where they'll end up, but I'm hoping for 48+.

    if toronto can manage to never lose two in a row, and to win 2 for every one loss 8 times, the will finish at 10 games over .500. Seeing as the schedule is a bit less scary (that boston win really would have helped this) its doable.

    If they only win at .500 pace they end up with 44 wins.

    can they eek out 6-8 more.... maybe so

    Thats said, they damn well better, because Brooklyn has awakened and are not going away, period.

    Things will be different after the all-star break, particularly as we near the playoffs. I suspect that the Nets, Knicks, Wizards, Bulls, Bucks, Hawks will all pick up their games....and, of course, there's still Indiana and Miami.

    The real test is yet ahead.

    hollinger also says we currently have a higher chance to make the finals than the heat does.

    Masai must extend Casey. Is more or less forced to overpay Lowry and can't trade any starters.
    Re-signs 2Pat and picks up the extra year on Salmons contract. Is this what we want? Just asking.
    Sounds about right. And 50 wins is definitely in reach.

    The ideal scenario would be for us to win division and Brooklyn finish 7th and knock off Miami in first round.

    In order to win 50, we need to go 30 - 14 for the rest of the season; certainly not impossible but it'd be tough for sure.

    49 wins -- just because ....

    ok im hungover, so my math might suck.... isnt 30-14 like 16 games over .500?

    they are already 2 game sover

    so thats 18 games over .500

    .500 is 41 wins.

    41 + 18 = 69

    thats 69 wins no?

    fuck, I think im drunk

    Even after losing to the lakers, the 50 win season is a possibility. This is how bad East is this year.

    and with those two shitty losses, hollinger now stipulates we're gonna max out at a projected 48 wins instead of 50. we just lost about 6% from our odds of being atlantic division champs.

    still another half a season to go.

    Agreed, not possible at this point in the year though lol. Also not realistic but fck it, aim high haha
    If we're sticking with unrealistic expectations, why stop at 82? Make it 98 (i.e 82 plus a 16-game playoff winning streak).
