6. What awaits the Raptors over the next 14 days?

Toronto plays six games over the next two weeks, three on the road and three more at home. Consecutive road contests in Indiana and Houston will undoubtedly test the resolve of Nick Nurse’s squad, followed by a third straight road affair with the Mavericks.  The Raptors will then return to the Scotiabank Arena to face the Bucks on January 31st.

Prior to all of that nonsense above taking place, Kawhi and Co. will play Memphis and Sacramento, both games taking place in Toronto.

It’s worth noting that on paper, the Raptors have the easiest remaining schedule of any team. They best not take their foot off the gas just yet, or else the likes of Harden, Oladipo and Antetokounmpo will make them look silly and have us all questioning everything.

Get healthy — JV has to be getting close — and stay healthy. That remains the primary objective for this team, as they continue chipping away at the NBA’s 82-game grind, with a keen eye on the playoffs — the true test.

dark. Next. Three types of trade targets for Raptors to look at this deadline

Presently in the driver’s seat of the Eastern Conference, the Raptors will serve themselves well to finish first in the conference (hot take, I know). Mind you, when things don’t go well, we have a tendency to get awfully quiet…but something tells me this year is going to be different.

Stay loud, Toronto!
