    Okay so our easy schedule is done. Shit is about to get real

    Nov 13 vs Bulls (6-2) (2 days off)
    Nov 15 vs Jazz (3-5) (2nd game of B2B)

    Nov 19 vs Grizz (7-1)

    Nov 21 vs Bucks (4-4) (1st game of B2B, 3rd game in 4 days)
    Nov 22 @ Cavs (3-3) (2nd game of B2B)

    Nov 24 vs Suns (4-3)
    Nov 26 @ Hawks (3-3) (2nd game of B2B)
    Nov 28 vs Mavs (5-3) (1st game of B2B)

    Nov 30 @ Lakers (1-6)
    Dec 2 @ Kings (5-3)
    Dec 3 @ Jazz (3-5)

    Dec 5 vs Cavs (3-3) (2nd game B2B)

    My guess
    Bulls W
    Jazz W
    Griz W
    Bucks W
    Cavs L
    Suns L
    Atl W
    Mavs L
    LA W
    Kings L
    Jazz W
    Cavs W

    I say we go 8-4 therefore we'll have a record of (15-5) 20 games into the season

    Tell me what you guys think
    I think 8-4 is the best case REALISTIC scenario (I don't think extremes on either end are likely, 10-2 or 2-10 etc.)

    The real challenges are going to be against those physical front-lines like Memphis and Sacramento. We probably lose to both teams and split the two Cavs games. Which means if we take care of business the rest of the way we can afford to drop one game to a Dallas/Phoenix/Chicago, but not more than one.

    Won't be easy, but this team can do it.

        2 Pat? Is that you???

        I want to be a bit more pessimistic, and say 7-5 or 6-6. Until we start being a little more consistent on both ends.

        I can't see us going 6-6, but 7-5 seems possible. The raps have had long stretches where they've played crappy. We can afford to play 3 crap quarters against the magic and come back for a narrow victory, but there aren't many teams in the next 12 where you can do that and still win.

        I also wouldn't be surprised to see a mini-drop while we work out some kinks. It's possible we are this season's version of last year's blazers. (Hot start, but unable to stay in best team in conference talks as the season progresses). A strong showing (8-4 or better) would be very good.

        EDIT: For the record, I voted we go 8-4. Beat most of the clearly underneath us in talent and go around .500 against the stronger opponents.

            Is the stuff in brackets the position the Raptors will be in or the opponent? Nov 15 for example shows the Jazz as the second game of a B2B.. however the Raptors have a day break after they play the Bulls.

            Assuming its the opponent position.. then both the Cavs and the Raps on Nov 22 will have played the day before. So from that perspective it should be a wash.

            From a matchup perspective, I don't like their chances against the Suns, Kings, Grizz and Cavs.. They play the Cavs twice so I say they win one, and lose the other.. probably another loss somewhere else so I go with 7-5.

              8-4. That's reasonable for this team. Sacremento could shock us though.

                I wanna say 9-3, losses coming to Cleveland, and Dallas. However, I chose 8-4, mainly because from a gut feeling, they will drop a game they should've won.

                  Even if we did 4-8 (that no one voted for), we would still be 11-9. Remember when we used to be so happy to be above .500? JUST LAST SEASON?!

                    Part of that's the schedule though - before each of the last two seasons, you'd look at the schedule and say "if we are .500 after 20 games we've got a real shot" - this year not so much.
