    Default 6-game homestand (Jan 8-18): bounce back or sink?

    We've tracked the previous home-stand and road trip, to predict and evaluate the team's performance, while also hoping to secure bragging rights!

    The next 6 games are at home, as DC preaches a return to fundamental defensive commitments. They come home to enjoy 3 straight days off to practice and have no back-to-backs, with DeRozan's return on the horizon.

    Currently on a 3-game losing streak, dropping games against the top 2 teams in the NBA (Golden State & Portland) and the hottest team in the league (Phoenix have won 9 of their past 11), will the Raptors bounce back or sink? They've dropped from 1st in the Eastern Conference to 3rd, behind Atlanta and Chicago.

    Jan 8 - Charlotte (2nd night of back-to-back, 3rd game in 4 nights)

    Jan 10 - Boston (2nd night of back-to-back, 3rd game in 4 nights)

    Jan 12 - Detroit

    Jan 14 - Philadelphia (2nd night of back-to-back)

    Jan 16 - Atlanta

    Jan 18 - New Orleans


    It's time to let your inner Nostradamus out... how will the Raptors react to their first 3-game losing streak of the season?

    4-2 at worst. Charlotte, Boston, Detroit and Philadelphia should be sure fire wins. Atlanta we've already beat but that was early, they've been really really good since. And then New Orleans should be a win but Anthony Davis has the skills (and whistle respect) to steal it.

    I'll go with 5-1. Loss the Atlanta.

    damn I could see us going 3-3. Boston, Detroit are tough. Atlanta is obviously a different beast from last time we played. New Orleans could be a problem too. I'll go 3-3

    Also the New Orleans game is a 3:30 game on a Sunday. It's at home this time but still worth mentioning.

    5-1

    Reason for optimism: Trusting the defensive rust is off and the players are getting some good loving at home

    Anything worse than 5-1 is extremely upsetting.

    That's probably going to be a loss then

    I'm banking on the fact that our defense has picked itself by then, and that DD's transitioned back in by then also.

    4-2, I think atlanta will beat us, and post josh smith detroit has been pretty good, have a strong rebounding front court and quick guard in jennings, which are both things we've been struggling with.

    I'll go 4-2. If Atlanta continues to play this way, nobody's beating them.

    We're due for a trap game here, hmmmmmm.... can't look off Detroit. SVG's looking like a genius right now.

    I don't think we're due for a trap game, I mean we've only lost 1 game to a losing team (Lakers). At this point I wouldn't even call the Detroit game a trap game, just a genuine tough one. They won in SA last night after being behind by 20 so they're good.

    Raptors have a good team not a great team. Only one team is above .500 but the Raptors should be able to go toe to toe with Atlanta especially with DeMar back.

    I'm going to go 5-1. I think the Raptors beat the Hawks and Pistons but lose to the Pelicans. Eric Gordon is back, nobody will be able to stop Davis, and Asik will be able to stop JV. Plus its an early game.
