This season has not been easy for the Raptors. Toronto entered the All-Star break just barely hanging in the play-in zone.
With 28 wins and 31 losses the team is tenth in the Eastern Conference. The sixth place which is the last direct playoff spot is currently occupied by the Knicks (33-27).
Despite all of this, Scottie Barnes is confident that the Raptors can make a push after the break and make the playoffs.
“We know we can do better. We’ve been in so many close games, so many tight games that we should’ve won,” Scottie Barnes said. “We know how good we can be, we know that we got off to a really bad start and we know we can get things going. So we feel really good in ourselves and our ability to still try to make that push.”
