Here Comes the Home Stretch

One down, one more to go.

Well, what a horrible finish to this Raps season.  First of all, the 104-88 loss to the Bulls at the ACC on Sunday may be the nail in the coffin for the Raps' playoff hopes but Toronto finally ended their losing skid with a win over the Pistons last night.  So playoff hopes are still alive.  Andrea Bargnani put up a career 33 points while former Piston, Amir Johnson, also put up a career-high with his 26 points.  

Now, even with a revamped Raptors roster in 09-10, this Raptors team may face another season without a playoff appearance.  So what needs to happen for the Raps to stay in it?

Who do the Raps have left?

vs. NYK (Wednesday)

And for the Bulls?

vs. BOS (Tuesday), @CHA (Wednesday)

What's the worst case scenario?
If the Bulls go 2-0, the Raps are out of it.  If Chicago goes 1-1 in the next two, then Toronto can get by winning the game against the Knicks.  If Chicago finishes 0-2, then the Raps are in.
