basically all those are not realistic but the last 1
winning more than 6 games has been nearly impossible for this team throughout its history, the basis behind this doesn't even have to do with the team's current status, it just doesn't happen to this franchise to got on a streak like that
losing that many in a row won't happen either because we'd probably hit a crap team in the middle of attempting a streak like that
the last is the most realistic because we're such an on and off team we'd probably win a couple and then lose a couple

Didn't you proclaim a 9-10 game winning streak in another thread? Getting a little weak in the knees already?

I'll be the "emo" one in this particular thread and say that its only going to get worse from here on out. 8+ straight losses to look forward too over the couple weeks.

If Triano stays the rest of the season (which it appears is the case)we miss the playoffs.Unless BC pulls off a robbery.

Raptors are good enough not to lose more than 5 games in row but not good enough to win more than 5 games in row. Jay doesn't give Raptors anything more than Sam would give. To make a difference, BC needs to make some adjustments ...

Last one seems the most realistic the other ones are possibilities that are doubtful to happen but I'd like to see a 8 game winning streak. That would be nice

I'm amazed how people blame this loss on Triano - he only had ONE practice before the game. Do you really expect the whole defensive system to change in just one practice?
My concern is that I expected players to play harder last night, and that didn't happen. Jose sucked, but at least he tried. Bosh seems very disinterested in my opinion. If the new coach doesn't have the players' backing, it will be an ugly stretch ahead. We will not lose 8 in a row, I don't think - but we will be bad. I'm looking forward to the next game at home, where Bosh is finally defended by somebody who is softer than him and will get a chance to redeem. We're probably going to lose, but at least show some heart and make it a fight. I'm tired of games lost in the first quarter.

yeah, also if he ever shoots another 3 pointer, unless it's the last second of the attack and there's no other option. And no more fade aways please.

BC is gonna make Jeff Van Gundy the head coach and he is gonna walk in on his first day looking like this:


And he is gonna say something to the players like "Alright bitches time to win some games or I'ma gonna feed you to my poodle." Raps go undefeated for the rest of the season and win the championship.

It looks like these people are on the bubble for being utterly correct.

Yep I'm in there myself. Wheeee!

But we'll have to wait and see if it sticks. With just three more losses the grand master Doc will be the sole victor of a prize yet to be revealed!

how can an 8-game losing streak come before a 6-8 game streak?

it would be a 8+ losing streak, and it would come with three more losses. The names listed so far voted for a 6-8 game streak.

I was looking at the "haters" group, and it's funny how most of the names in that group qualify for at least one of the following statements:

1. they don't like Colangelo
2. they like Sam Mitchell
3. they like TJ and/or they don't like Jose

Since the poll was conducted before Triano actually got to coach a single game, it would be interesting to hear the reasoning behind their choice ....
