Default Raps Moving Up in the Power Rankings at halfway mark

From NBA.com - they actually dropped us a couple places from last week.

14. Toronto 21-20 Pace: 95.4 (13), Off: 108.6 (4), Def: 109.5 (30)

Andrea Bargnani had a nice weekend, averaging 23 points and nine boards while shooting 18-for-30 in wins over the Knicks and Mavs. He's averaging career highs across the board and already has more double-doubles (seven) than he did last season.
From ESPN - http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/powerranking

Quote:
13 (15) Raptors 21-20 It took a 10-3 surge, lots of Bosh damage and Jarrett Jack's emergence as the starting point guard to get there, but the Raps are a winning team at the 41-game mark for just the fifth time in the franchise's 15 seasons.
Hollinger has us as 12, with his playoff odds giving us a 90.8 percent chance.

I would not be that surprised if they beat either and therefor both of those teams. Their defense is much better, so it would be a matter of good shooting.

I'd be happy with 2-2 over the next 4 games.
I also feel good about tonights game.
Very worried about MIL ... 2 games in a succession with the same team is never good.

The Lakers are not a great road team only 9 & 6 with the NBAs easiest schedule so far.
Kobe is shooting like Vince lately.
Think a strong possibility of 3 & 1 for Raptors.
