Raptors 2009-2010 Month by Month Prediction


This was my response to Franchise's post but I'll see what everyone else has to say, since it looks like the Fan Posts are a little slow right now.

Here's my month by month predictions:

October:  Starting off with a bang with Cleveland.  (1-1)

November: This will be the make or break part to the season with 2 long road trips out west sandwhiched by a cup of coffee at home to da Bulls. Then there’s the two games against the Magic and one with the Celtics. The must win games are vs the Clippers, Bobcats, Heat, Pacers and Pistons. Crossing my fingers huge for a near .500 month.  (7-9)

December: A lot of home and aways but this is where they need to dominate. This is the softest part of the schedule and if they didn’t get destroyed in November, or even if they did, they need to move huge. If they go on a 6-12 start (which is very realistic if not probable)  they may not have the confidence to run December as they need to.  But let’s be positive.  (9-6)

January: A more balanced month again with home and aways vs eastern opponents. (7-8)

February: Nice easy run at home with only Cleveland as a huge opponent. (7-3)

March: The meat of the season with another long West Coast trip through the Lakers. A balanced schedule with a mixture of tough and soft: (8-8)

April: Finishing off against Eastern rivals. They will be jockeying for mid range spot in the playoffs and if they survived the first month, a battle for 4th. If they didn’t survive the first month they’ll be battling for a playoff spot. (4-4)

Total: 43 Wins, 6th Seed
