    Default GT: Toronto vs. Clippers: The pain is almost over

    Toronto leads the league in back to backs with 6. Toronto has also played the most playoff teams from last season and have played more road games than any other team. The first 21 games of their schedule are brutal but then the raptors have one of the easiest schedule from then on. Lucky for them today is game 21. Hopefully we can start to see the raptors we all anticipated starting with an upset against LA today.

    I knew it was bad ... I didn't know it was THIS bad. Crazy.
    Well this leaves me even more optimistic that everything will even itself out in the end...but first we gotta get past the Clips.

    Which should be a tall task. They've been playing really well this year ... need CP3 to have a monster game in Fantasy though .. so I'm torn. Haha

    Negative Ned time:

    Schedule has absolutely been brutal. But the results show us that the Raptors aren't a team that is made to achieve much more than possibly a first round exit.

    Radical changes are not needed but the current veteran 'core' pieces should go. That includes #tradeBargnani, Calderon, Kleiza, and possibly Amir. Lots of great people in there I know but really what have those 4 done for Toronto in the last few years?

    We'll see. They have Houston, Brooklyn and Dallas off the road trip. Then they have SA, NO and Orl on an awkward Christmas time road swing to finish the month. The rest of the month isn't going to be easy. Then they've still got 3 against Boston, 4 against the Knicks, 2 more against Brooklyn after this week, and 2 more against Philly. They also haven't played Miami yet. Or Chicago. Or Atlanta. Or the Lakers.

    It won't be that much easier.

    Default hoping for the best

    Yeah, the schedule guy is merciless with our Raps and the early season road trips.
    I am not going to watch the air show today, you think 3 pointer after 3 pointer is bad. This is going to be worse.

    Raptors by 9 because the Del Negro loses his mind and plays Odom 47 minutes on Bargnani so Bargnani goes off for 50.

    When you are a terrible basketball team every game on the schedule is tough.

    I hate the openers this season. All they do is hype the other team.
