Pascal Siakam and the Toronto Raptors finished last season with a 48-34 record. The Raptors have a 31-32 record at the moment and they’re two losses away from reaching last season’s loss total.
The team has a little more than 15 games remaining on their schedule. Currently the 9th seed in the Eastern Conference and three wins behind the 6th seed, every upcoming game could be pivotal for the Raptors if they plan on avoiding the NBA Play-In tournament.
The last quarter of the season will determine whether or not the Raptors even qualify for the play-in tournament. The team’s three game lead on the 11th seeded Chicago Bulls and 12th seeded Indiana Pacers isn’t daunting because of the amount of games left in the season. If the franchise loses too many games down the stretch, they won’t make the playoffs or the play-in tournament.
