The Raptors are currently at 16 and 17 after their fifth win at home tonight. If they were to play at .600 the rest of the way they would end up winning 29.4 games out of 49. With 29 wins the Raptors would end up with 45 wins. I truly believe that if they want to be successful in the playoffs this year three things need to happen:
1. Come up with the 4th seed in the conference. Will 45 wins be enough to accomplish this? Probably not.... They will need between 52 and 48 wins. This would mean playing at .734 winning percentage the rest of the way - again not likely
2. Either match up against Miami or Atlanta. I think if the Raptors can continue to play at the .600 level they could beat either team on any given night
3. Acquire a dependable, high scorer that would come of the bench and can also help with rebounding.
