Default vs. Houston and the next 10

despite the houston team looking a bit tired and flat
i gotta FINALLY give some credit to this team they played a decent ball game today (albeit againsta team far from 100%)
regardless the beat the team in front of them and that's what matters
next 10 for the Raps?
not so great, if we can go .500 that would be acceptable for me some tough underrated teams here, most likely 4-6 though

Sun 04 vs Orlando
Mon 05 @ Milwaukee
Wed 07 @ Washington
Fri 09 vs Memphis
Sun 11 vs Boston
Mon 12 @ Boston
Wed 14 vs Chicago
Fri 16 @ Indiana
Sun 18 vs Phoenix
Mon 19 @ Atlanta

thoughts on the raptors' next 10?

*on a side note, finally getting to my first raps game this season against orlando, school has been so crazy i just haven't had the time or money (university budget haha) to get to one and im really pumped to see the bosh v dwight matchup in person

We could go 7-3 in those span. Schedule is favoring us except for that back-to-back with Boston. Of we go 7-3 in this 10 game span.

Around .500 looks like the most likely outcome.

you posted this at like 2:30, while the raptors were playing Orlando!
but im glad they proved you wrong

anyways i say its more like
Sun 04 vs Orlando (Win)
Mon 05 @ Milwaukee (Win)
Wed 07 @ Washington (Win)
Fri 09 vs Memphis (Win)
Sun 11 vs Boston (Lose)
Mon 12 @ Boston (Lose)
Wed 14 vs Chicago (Win)
Fri 16 @ Indiana (Win)
Sun 18 vs Phoenix (Lose/Lose)
Mon 19 @ Atlanta (Win)

call me optimistic, but come on they win by 21 against Houston and just came off beating one of the elite of the east...
if there was any time for optimism it would be now

oh and also, if they play like this when J.O and Calderon get back i think they might even come up with a close win against Boston?

5 of next 9 against under .500 teams. You would hope they can get 4 of those. Of the remainder pull out 2 wins againsty tougher opponents.

Regardless of the results I want someone to take on Garnett especailly if he gives one of his cheap shot moving shoulder picks. I am looking and hoping for Voshkul (hopefully they make his contract guaranteed since they need his toughness and edge) to give some cheapshots back to Garnett. More importantly I hope the whole team especially Bosh stand up tough to the Celtics who are struggling of late.
