This optimism is not based in reality. We will struggle and I predict we won't win two in a row until one of Lowry or Bargnani
Also, we're now past the two teams with pathetic frontcourts. Here comes the boom.
Yeah, you make some good points. I don't see a serious win streak coming. But I do think the Raps can win a few of these games.
Aside from losing close games, the main reason the Raps' record sucks is because they're horriawful on the road: 1-14.
But they actually are decent at home: 4-5. And out of those losses, they lost to the Pacers by 1 point, and the Spurs and Jazz in overtime. They've got a few homes games against less challenging opponents, so I think they can win at least a couple of those.
