    Default Upcoming West Coast Road Trip.

    What are realistic expectations for up coming road trip?

    I think 3-2 is attainable but I am very concerned re at Utah game. The Raps need to play with desperation and intensity if not it could be a repeat of recent Boston game.

    Hopefully the wheels will not fall off. The spacing between games is much better than in previous years. There is time to regroup after a horrible loss.

    I think all of the games on the West Coast trip could go either way, so I'm not really sure what to expect. Raps have to bring their 'A' game each and every time if they want to finish this trip with a decent record. I guess you could say that about the rest of the season too.

    I don't know what to expect because this team always places to the level of their competition. They could vary well beat Portland and then lose by 20 to Utah

    Your hopes are still too high. These raptors are sadly coming back down to earth:-(

    How can any raptors fan who survived that last seven game (let's go 6-1!) stretch even begin to ponder this? It's a crazy team. Appreciate any win they bestow. Cringe with every perplexing loss. Hopefully it all ends up where we want to be. Wherever that is.

    That's the sad part. Even with 2 potential all-stars and one of the best performing benches in the league lately, there's still no consistency to our game. Id love to one day have the utmost confidence in the raptors the way an OKC fan probably has for their team.

    It's pretty damn hard to predict this raptors team. I don't even want to look past the next game at home to Orlando, that's the kind of game the raptors have been losing of late!
    All 5 games look potentially tough to me, people are talking down Utah but they have had quite a number of good wins of late.

    Either 5-0, or 0-5. If they win that first one, they'll have enough momentum.. otherwise, they will deflate for the entire stretch.

    Portland didn't look so good last few games so maybe we have a chance.

    If we come out 3-3 after the road trip and including the ORL game, then we should be happy with that. The schedule is gets much much easier after that.

    I wonder if Rudy will be healthy for the game in Sacramento?

    You're right but we played like crap that whole week. I don't think the opponents really mattered, because it was kind of a mini slump (which happens to every good team).

    I would be dissappointed if we didn't win 3. We could probably win 4 if we shoot well and don't take a bath on FT's like we have done on the road in some losses. I'm guessing there will be a couple of close games that can go either way.

    Sacramento game worries me a bit.. I'm interested to see how JV will handle Cousins.

    The Portland game is doubtful in my eyes, it's the second night of a back to back with the night before in Denver
