Default Tough Road Trip Coming

The Raptors have a tough west coast road trip coming up. It's early in the season but I think that these games are key for confidence building. They play 7 of the next 8 on the road (as I'm sure most of you are aware)...against tough teams.

1. Fri Nov. 6th @ New Orleans
2. Sat Nov. 7th @ Dallas
3. Mon Nov. 9th @ San Antonio
4. Wed Nov. 11th vs. Chicago
5. Fri Nov. 13th @ LA Clippers
6. Sun Nov. 15th @ Phoenix
7. Tue Nov. 17th @ Denver
8. Wed Nov. 18th @ Utah

What do you predict will be the Raptors record come November 19th?

1. Fri Nov. 6th @ New Orleans - loss
2. Sat Nov. 7th @ Dallas - win
3. Mon Nov. 9th @ San Antonio - loss
4. Wed Nov. 11th vs. Chicago - win
5. Fri Nov. 13th @ LA Clippers - win
6. Sun Nov. 15th @ Phoenix - win
7. Tue Nov. 17th @ Denver - loss
8. Wed Nov. 18th @ Utah - loss


I'm calling for a 4-4 stretch.

just to clarify i do think i'm being a tad optimistic, specifically with the Clips and the Suns games, but for some reason i just have more faith in these guys not to fold so easily on the road.

I guess they could VERY realistically go 3-5 (which i could accept given that we're still in the process of gelling).

0-8

That'll leave us at 2-10.

Just move 'em to Kentucky or Kansas City already!

2 wins would be huge, but I think 0-8 is not unrealistic. 4-4 is, we will never beat phoenix as long as nash is there and they're playing fast ball. And Dallas on the road on a back to back? Don't think so ...

2-6 is my realistic perdiction... but odds are they will beat a tough home team on the road so if they come back 3 and 5 i'll be happy!

1. Fri Nov. 6th @ New Orleans ----- Loss (NO has momentum from their last win, whereas we barely hung on after a 17 point lead)
2. Sat Nov. 7th @ Dallas ----------- Loss (2nd game of a back-to-back, although Dallas did lose a heartbreaker the other day to the hornets)
3. Mon Nov. 9th @ San Antonio ---- Win (We always seem to get up for games against San Antonio. Unless Ginobili beats us, I say we win)
4. Wed Nov. 11th vs. Chicago ------ Loss (who on our team is going to stop Rose and the other Bulls guards?)
5. Fri Nov. 13th @ LA Clippers ----- Win (I know they're drastically improved this year, but I think we can win)
6. Sun Nov. 15th @ Phoenix ------- Win (Run and Gun with no D, vs all O and questionable D - I say we win)
7. Tue Nov. 17th @ Denver -------- Loss (Undefeated, Carmelo is a beast)
8. Wed Nov. 18th @ Utah ---------- Loss (2nd game of a back-to-back, in Utah)

3-5. I hope I'm wrong :/

Wed Nov. 18th @ Utah - W

First three games are the toughest part of the trip, if we can squeak out a win in one of those games I say we come out above .500. Expecting a .500 trip though, Utah is playing shitty basketball and Phoenix isn't as good as its record.
