Hoopsworld Raptors season preview

The argument against Toronto making the playoffs can be summarized by listing Miami, Indiana, Boston, Chicago, Brooklyn, New York, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. Whose spot in the playoffs are the Raptors going to take? There is a strong argument that the East has gotten better, but Toronto, Milwaukee, Washington and Cleveland have also improved and the Bobcats will not match last year’s record for futility. Just like in past years, a .500 record should be sufficient to earn an Eastern Conference team a playoff berth.

While it is not easy to determine which teams in the East will live up to their preseason expectations, Toronto has done enough to be a 41-win team or better and that record should take the eighth and final playoff spot.
