Raptors 5 Game road trip

This is a massive stretch before the all-star game. Get through it and the schedule opens up for us and we only play vs western conference a couple more times the rest of the way and have no more long road trips. If we can go 3-2 i'd be thrilled. Probably 2-3 though...


@Denver
@Portland
@Utah
@Sac
@Clippers


Thoughts?

They absolutely need to take care of business in Utah. SAC and DEN are 50-50 games imo, have to take one of those.

It's good that they have a 3 game buffer over .500 though.

I'd be happy with 2-3 to be honest.

2-3 is the expectation, 3-2 is the goal.
Will be a tough stretch though.

3-2.

we have a horrendous record against the nuggets, and portland is just a monster.

win the next two against teams not as good as us. and fight back to get a win over LA in a gritty style.

3-2 would be very nice but I doubt it.

I feel we can literally beat any team thats not Miami or IND.

The goal should be a 7 game winning streak going into the break.

I think we squeak on out in Denver and finally get over that hump.
Lose to Portland.
Demolish Utah.
Sac game could be 50/50 but I'll take the raps.
and Last the raps get revenge vs. the Clips and
go 4-1 to put the league on notice

At worst it will be 2-3, Utah W is pretty much booked and I see Raptors to get at least one W in the other 4 games. This road trip wont change our record and conference position much

denver is doable. lawson and robinson out with injury. so i hope we can win this one.
Portland, i think it will be closer than the first at home.
Ytah are in a good streak right now, so diffuclt to say, but i hope for a win.
SAC, i think our bench from sac will have in their heart to win this one.
and the clippers would be a nice game. i expect DD to be there and to want to destroy them.

3-2 will be very fine, like the last West road trip.
but a 4-1, would be way better and put distance between us and our immediate pursuiter.

It would really help to get the first win Friday night in Denver. I'm guessing that DD will be back. He was walking without any kind of noticeable limp at halftime.

Any word on how bad Amir's injury might have been? Going to be tough without him.

I thought I heard confirmation on the radio that DeMar is playing tomorrow. 3-2 would be ideal, and I think it's doable.

I doubt that. I'd be surprised if he was in the lineup
