    Default Rest of February - predictions

    The remainder of the month looks favourable. Only 2 road games and 1 back to back. Here is what we have coming up:

    10th vs NO
    12th vs ATL
    18th @ WAS
    19th vs CHI
    21st vs CLE
    23rd vs ORL
    25th @CLE
    27th vs WAS

    How do you think the Raps will fare during the rest of the month?

    I'm gonna go with the high end and pick 6 wins. Every single one of these games is winnable. i have faith!

    Other than Chicago (2nd night of back to back), I think there's no reason not to win them all.

    But Raps have a habit of losing games they should win--Boston, Sacramento and Charlotte.

    Which is why I said "no reason not to win"; not would win

    Ok Fair enough. We all know we are not going 8-0 though it would be possible if played to what they are capable of in each game.

    I wouldn't be shocked if we did though. Those are all winnable games. Chicago is struggling to score and if that wasn't the 2nd of the back to back games, I'd say we should win that game. I also wouldn't be shocked to see us win only 2 or 3 of the games. Such is the life in Raptors land.

    The two against Washington, Chicago and the one against Atlanta will be very important. If Brooklyn does end up winning the Atlantic, you don't want the Raptors to suddenly be looking at 7th place facing Miami in the first round.

    If they play like a top team, then an extended winning streak is well within their grasp, solidifying their spot at the top of the 'best of the rest of the EC' group.

    If they play down to the competition like they have against some pretty poor teams, they could suddenly find themselves on the EC playoff bubble, on the brink of 'no man's land'.

    With guys like Hansborough getting healthy, I think DC will crack the whip and make sure they put away their weaker opponents. Otherwise, things could get interesting heading into the trade deadline.

    Anything less than 6-2 will seem like a big disappointment.

    I expect them to 4-4 to be honest. They always seem to play at their opponents level and have been playing awful defense lately

    Not good lol. What are they at right now? I'm still not too pleased with the way they've been playing though. But you can get away with that when you play crappy teams.

    Isn't that kind of the best way to predict? If things go bad you're right, and if we do better than expected you win as a fan because their playing better than you thought

    not really. thats not predicting. thats just trying to play it safe so you dont get burned. kind of like how GLF expects EVERY game to be a loss, just so an actual loss doesn't hurt as much.

    either way, 6-1 in this stretch! even the most positive posts in this thread considered a 6-2 run to be a success. Closing the month with 7-1 with a win over washington (which is definitely possible, especially without nene) is just icing on the cake and would be a franchise record of 33 wins by march.

    A lot of that is due to Amir not showing up hes been leaving JV high and dry for help D losing rebounds to old ladies, and giving up lanes that a paralyzed hobbit could exploit.

    All games recently best minutes have been when Amir is sitting on the bench.
