Personally, I think the teams we are playing against are weak enough that we can go .500 during the stretch, but no more. We are right in the middle of that pack of weak teams. The last two games we won featured some uncharacteristic performances from players that don't normally play like that. We got some fluke achievements, one from Kleiza, one from Anderson, and neither is likely to keep up for an 8 game stretch. They couldn't even do it for two games, really -- they each scored only 2 points in the other games.
If we end up blowing some of these though and going 5-5 or something then your prediction seems pretty accurate.

No. We could finish 10th but we lost too many close ones early in the season and there have been too many injuries to bridge the divide.
We won't make it unless we go on a miracle 10 game winning streak and that's impossible. Anyways we need to finish in the middle of the pack so OKC gets our pick. I rather give it to them in a weak draft class.
The raptors should be trying to get back to the .500 mark before the end of the season. Hopefuly Bargnani will be gone until then to give us a chance
While it is unlikely, I still believe it is possible. Injuries can derail a season for any team and it all it takes is for a few of the teams in front of us to face some injury trouble later in the season and the Raps could be right back in it. Now this is keeping in mind that the Raptors continue to play the mistake free basketball they have played over the last two games and Bargnani when he returns does not revert back to being Mr. Brick City.
