The Raptors will make the playoffs.
They are currently 4 games back and chasing the Bucks. The Bucks are trending downwards, and falling in the standings fast. The Bucks have lost 9 of their last 11.
Toronto on the other hand is trending up. They started terrible, 4-19, but have since been 19-14, which isn't great but better than the Knicks, who are 3rd, in that same time period and a pace good enough for the playoffs. Since the Gay trade, the Raps are 7-3, with 6 wins against playoff teams. Since Gay has got use to the team a little, they are 6-1.
The Bucks have 20 games left against top 20 teams, and only 8 games against bottom feeders.
The Raps have have 15 games left against top 20 teams, and 11 against bottom 10.
Since the 76'ers (10th place) 10-7 start, they are 12-25. They wont be making it either.
The Lakers are only 2.5 games back, but are trying to catch good teams. Houston had a 7 game skid in mid-season where they lost 7 straight, but have recovered nicely and are playing well. No West team is falling like the Bucks. Plus the Lakers have 14 games left against playoff teams.

A TD is when a football player gets in the end-zone with the football!!

Well after the last two games, in which the Raps played terrible, they pretty much lost all hope.
Andrea Bargnani should never see the court again, he is terrible. Meanwhile, JV, has a very, very bright future in this league. The 20-year old in his rookie, has a 20.5% TRB% and a 4.2% BLK% His offensive game is coming along too, though can still need some polishing. But he needs to play more than the 21 minutes a game he has been.
