    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.

    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

    Exactly. Couldn't agree more.

    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.

    This is such an important stretch of the season. Gotta stretch out that lead over Brooklyn.

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

    Especially with Brooklyn on 7 game road trip than spans all star break.

    This is the Raptors' time to stretch their lead over Brooklyn and Atlanta. These are all very winnable games against teams we have either already beaten this season or have the statistical potential to beat.

    No more Boston/Charlotte/Sacremento-esque games.

    I want them to play hard and to play with purpose, that is to win these games and extend their lead in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference.

    This is such a great schedule. On Paper it looks like 7-1, but I don't think the Raptors are consistent enough to win all the games they are expected to win, so I'm thinking 5-3 or hopefully 6-2.
