If they play without Lowry and Bargnani the whole way through, I think they win 3 games. Bargnani out of the lineup makes the defense better. And I don't necessarily think Calderon is better than Lowry, but right now the team has more chemistry with Jose, and Jose plays with more confidence when he knows he's getting his minutes. 3-4 is realistic under those conditions.

if they can get a very difficult win tomorrow against houston, i see a winning streak coming which will last until the san antonio game (5 game winning streak), against the spurs we will lose and against the next two (new orleans, orlando), i see the team win one of them (don't know which) ---> 10-21

best case: we win everything besides against the spurs
worst case: we only win one game against those lower teams like detroit, cleveland or orlando

Home games, easier opponents. We should win some games. Possibly even 10-21

We beat an absolutely slumping Dallas squad where they went 0-for from three and looked anemic on offence as their best players (on the court) struggled mightily to hold on to the ball and make open looks. There is no winning streak coming soon. We're just not that good. Say it was the defense all you want last night, it wasn't. They looked terrible. Heck, we looked terrible. This optimism is not based in reality. We will struggle and I predict we won't win two in a row until one of Lowry or Bargnani come back.

Also, we're now past the two teams with pathetic frontcourts. Here comes the boom.

I think we only split with Orlando. Don't sleep on the Magic. They can beat us when they are at home.

I think we beat the Pistons and the Magic at home, and maybe even Houston. I figure we win one of the Cleveland and Houston games. So 3-4 total, as I said above. That's assuming Bargnani GTFOs the whole 7 games.

Yeah, you make some good points. I don't see a serious win streak coming. But I do think the Raps can win a few of these games.

Aside from losing close games, the main reason the Raps' record sucks is because they're horriawful on the road: 1-14.

But they actually are decent at home: 4-5. And out of those losses, they lost to the Pacers by 1 point, and the Spurs and Jazz in overtime. They've got a few homes games against less challenging opponents, so I think they can win at least a couple of those.

Just one game. The schedule is really in our favour for the remainder of the month. If Lowry returns earlier, I think we could make a strong push.

Houston: Loss
Cleveland: Loss
Detroit: Win
Orlando: Win
Spurs: Loss
Hornets: Win
Magic: Loss

8-23
3-4

Is it really THAT far fetched to say we can still compete for a playoff spot then? I still think we can make the playoffs if we're under .500....

Come on, lets just have those 5 minutes of joy at least. All in all it was not your usuall terrible game..

That said, I think Houston is overrated and overacheiving. Not that there's a great chance the Raps can beat them, but I do believe there's a close game coming. Then again we all know how those usually go..

today is the day, if we can win this game i believe they could get a winning streak running and a 10-21 record at the end of the month would be a real possibility, if they lose today it will go on like the whole season and we'll go into january with something like 7-24; pretty important game today

See the thing is, we keep saying that today is the day. I think it's too little too late, unless we are really going to go 180 degrees
