    Raptors are currently 17-30. It is a might big hole they are in regarding the playoffs. To get 40 wins and a reasonable shot at the playoffs, they can only lose 12 of their next 35 games (i.e. they have to go 23-12).


    Here is the remaining schedule:


    Sun, Feb 3 vs Miami

    Wed, Feb 6 vs Boston

    Fri, Feb 8 @ Indiana

    Sun, Feb 10 vs New Orleans

    Tue, Feb 12 vs Denver

    Wed, Feb 13 @NY Knicks

    Tues, Feb 19 @Washington

    Wed, Feb 20 vs Memphis

    Fri, Feb 22 vs NY Knicks

    Mon, Feb 25 vs Washington

    Wed, Feb 27 @ Cleveland

    Fri, Mar 1 vs Indiana

    Sat, Mar 2 @ Milwaukee

    Mon, Mar 4 @ Golden State

    Wed, Mar 6 @ Phoenix

    Fri, Mar 8 @ Los Angeles

    Sun, Mar 10 vs Cleveland

    Wed, Mar 13 @ Boston

    Fri, Mar 15 vs Charlotte

    Sun, Mar 17 vs Miami

    Wed, Mar 20 @ Charlotte

    Fri, Mar 22 vs NY Knicks

    Sat, Mar 23 @ NY Knicks

    Wed, Mar 27 vs Atlanta

    Fri, Mar 29 @ Detroit

    Sun, Mar 31 @ Washington

    Mon, Apr 1 vs Detroit

    Wed, Apr 3 vs Washington

    Fri, Apr 5 @ Minnesota

    Sat, Apr 6 @ Milwaukee

    Tue, Apr 9 @ Chicago

    Fri, Apr 12 vs Chicago

    Sun, Apr 14 vs Brooklyn

    Tue, Apr 16 @ Atlanta

    Wed, Apr 17 vs Boston

    Schedule Breakdown

    Total games: 35

    Home games: 17

    Road games: 18

    games vs. East: 28

    Games vs. West: 7

    Games vs. opp over .500: 21

    Games vs. opp under .500: 14

    Games vs. teams currently in 6-7-8-9-10:
    • Atlanta - 2
    • Milwaukee - 2
    • Boston - 3
    • Philadelphia - 0
    • Detroit - 2



    Coulda/shoulda/woulda time: All I keep thinking about is the blown games vs. Milwaukee and Philly and the 4 "ref" games.



    So with the schedule breakdown, what do you think Raptors playoff odds are?

    Man... I put 40-60, and that was in the beginning of February. I should've seen the slip coming...

    Looking at the Bucks limp in to the playoffs (37-41, 3-7 last 10), 40 wins would have likely assured a playoff spot - even 38 would have done it had the Raps even split with Milwaukee. With four games left the Bucks play Atlanta, Charlotte, Denver, and OKC.


    Disappointing because it was attainable.
    That's exactly it. That's what is so heartbreaking about this season.
    And not even to say it could have been better ... it SHOULD have been better.

    I think next year, anything but the Playoffs will be a HUGE let down.
    Which is at least a nice feeling to have. Been a while since we've been able to say that.

    I just went back to check some of my old posts (at another site), and I found that at the 4-14 mark I predicted us to win 20 games total this season. That was before the Gay trade obviously.

    However.. sitting at 23 wins, I do not feel like they have exceeded my expectations.

    They can not make the playoffs this season maybe next year if the players like Gay and Bargnani not injury.

    Good luck next seasons!!!

    I wouldn't be too sure about this... the Raptors were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs really early last season however Casey was still playing all his vets. Casey does not like playing his rookies.. didn't do it last year when tanking could have helped.. I really doubt he will do it this year when tanking will make no sense since OKC has the pick.
    Ah man I remember that too.. I hope he's changed though. I've got tickets to a game mid-March and I'm hoping to get a big dose of the young guys. I don't want to spend the whole game booing Bargnani.

    The fun is about to begin because the minute they are mathematically eliminated, good times will ensue.

    For one thing, JV and Ross will start getting more minutes. This mean less minutes for guys like Bargnani and Anderson, which also equates to winning more games. I'm sorry to anyone who likes the latter two players, but facts are facts -- we will win more games without Bargnani and Anderson on the floor.

    I'm excited about seeing the young guys get more minutes, even if it means no playoffs.
