  • Dec 22 6 game road trip--when we find out what this team is made of.

    Looking at schedule and seeding--on our big road trip I could see us losing all 6 games BUT if we could win 3, 4 or even 5 then we could be considered serious title contenders. How many games do you think we will win?

    There is no way we are losing all 6. This is most likely our best team of all time. Vinces vs Iverson debatedly a better team but people need to stop counting these guys out.

    That said, derozan will still be out so its not really a 100% measuring stick. i say we go 3-3

      It'll be a tough test, for sure.

      And if it coincides with DeRozan's return, there might be some chemistry/rust issues to work through as well.

      Plus the usual distraction of the holiday season.

        That road trip will be a nice vacation. Getting out of Toronto in mid winter is a blessing, plus five days off at Christmas.

          Wonder if they'll all stay together during the off days at xmas break. Further bonding (and warm weather) is always a good thing. 3-3 will be good result.

            Im sure the players will get to fly back to their families over Christmas after the chicago game on the 22nd, whether their family is in toronto or wherever im sure they'll get at least the 25th then reconvene and fly to L.A. on boxing day.

              I have similar concerns. There is not one game that I can say with 95 % confidence that we will win. The easiest game at Denver is on back end of back to back.

                4-2 is pretty realistic actually.

                  If Superjudge says we'll go 4-2, we're probably going 2-4

                          I will be happy with3-3...just avoid 0-6 or 1-5..

                            2-4.

                            Doesn't matter how many we win though. We are not serious contenders.

                              @CHI - L
                              @ LAC - L
                              @ DEN - Maybe W (their HC advantage is kinda gone since they don't really run anymore)
                              @ POR - L
                              @ GSW - L
                              @ PHX - L

                              I'm predicting 1-5 in that stretch.

                              Might as well predict the games between now and then also:

                              vs. DEN - W
                              @ CLE - L
                              vs. IND- W
                              @ NYK - L
                              vs. ORL - W
                              vs. BKN - L
                              @ DET - W
                              vs. NYK - W
                              (5-3)

                              So that totals to 6-8 over our next 14. We'd be 21-13 which puts us on pace for ~51 wins, which is more in line with where I see us finishing this year. This fools gold of being damn near a ~80% win percentage will be ending soon.
