voted 17-13. had a hard time picking between that one and 18-12 but 17 out of 30 is optimistic enough imo. some tough games still left to play.

19-11, of course. Then my 48 win prediction (below my user name) can come true.

it still think we can hit 53 wins this season! but i took 21 - 9 and BC is chuckling at all the "experts" who claimed he was a fool!

Boston is struggling and i think we can actually win our division and host a series! i can't wait for the stupid all-star farce to be over! nice break, but a waste of time and talent! any fan who voted for AI is stupid!!! he did the right thing and declined! first classy thing he did in his career!

ok just went through the schedule and this is how i break it down.....

8 extremely tough games (CLE, LA, ATL, UTA, DEN, CLE, BOS, ATL)

6 tough but winnable games (MEM, POR, OKC, HOU, POR, OKC)

16 MUST win games (NJN, WAS, NYK, PHI, SAC, GSW, NJN, MIN, MIA, CHA, LAC, PHI, GSW, CHI, DET, NYK)

so looking at it like this, i say at worst we should go 16-14 and at best 20-10
(maybe more than 20 wins depending on how good we really have become since the beginning and finally start competing against ATL and BOS)

so a projectile of 45-37 at worst and 49-33 at the best

IMO:

8 extemely tough games (2-6)

6 Tough but winable games (4-2)

16 must win games (12-4)

= 18-12

Final record of 47-35 (Good for 5th place)

(CLE, LA, ATL, UTA, DEN, CLE, BOS, ATL)
Can win against LA, Boston, Denver, and Utah. Atlanta will kill us and so will Cleveland.
4-4

(MEM, POR, OKC, HOU, POR, OKC)
OKC and POR are tough not so much Houston or Memphis.
4-2

(NJN, WAS, NYK, PHI, SAC, GSW, NJN, MIN, MIA, CHA, LAC, PHI, GSW, CHI, DET, NYK)
Might lose against Philidelphia, Miami.
14-2

Streak = 22-8
Record = 51-31

ya thats what i voted for, im sure they wont win ALL the games that are must wins plus the team has been playing GREAT since december and they are bound to hit a rough patch so 18-12 sound perfectly reasonable. I just want to see how we fair against ATL, BOS and CLE i dont expect wins but i expect a solid team effort and a glimpse of hope showing that we can compete with them come the playoffs.

I break down Abdiesel's prediction more...

3 extremely tough games @AWAY (LA, CLE, ATL)
-> 0-3

5 extremely tough games @HOME (CLE, ATL, UTA, DEN, BOS)
-> 2-3

3 tough but winnable games @AWAY (OKC, HOU, POR)
-> 1-2

3 tough but winnable games @HOME (MEM, POR, OKC)
-> 2-1

9 MUST win games @AWAY (NJN, SAC, GSW, NJN, MIN, MIA, CHA, PHI, DET)
-> 6-3

7 MUST win games @HOME (WAS, NYK, PHI, LAC, GSW, CHI, NYK)
-> 6-1

-->> 46-36

If Raptors are consistent they can easily beat out any team except the top 3-4 seeds in each conference.

You guys are underrating them. 50+ wins at least. I'll bank on that.

I hope people don't get me wrong but Raptors are more than capable of consistently playing at a high level as they possess more than an adequate arsenal of weapons. But what good is an arsenal of weapons with no ammo (in this case defense). Catch my drift?

If the Raptors actually win 50 games, I will shit my pants.
