Default Raptors on the road Back to Respectable?

Quote:
But after going for seven wins and thirteen losses to start the season, can the Raptors go 10-3 to close out December one game above .500?

The schedule says, “Yes!”

But the Raptors players and coaches have not proven that they have the “toughness” to take advantage of “soft” spots in the schedule yet.

The next 11 games in December on about as soft as the Raps can hope for!

If they can go 8-3, they're 1 game over .500

Can they do it?

Answer is yes the schedule is much better for the Raptors.
Mostly bottom dwellers and teams headed to be bottom dwellers.
Milwaukee had the easiest schedule in the NBA now getting beat-up the rookie back being a rookie.
Indicators will be Charlotte they play poorly away from home but a good defensive club.
Miami the Raptors on paper a much better club........but need to pass them for 5th.
Plus will be huge indicator how they react to playing Atlanta again after the humilating defeat.

it would be a very impressive performance

fringe playoff teams don't go 8-3 on the road, regardless of who they're playing. If we'd do that, it would mean we really area 50-win calibre team.

to truly become respectable in the eyes of other teams, their defense needs to improve.

Raptors aren't getting any respect whatsoever until they start playing some D


maybe people in Canada would respect us, but i know for a fact those South of the border see us as the Northern GS Warriors
