Home Sweet Home
In every sport there is a home field advantage, but nowhere is it greater than in the NBA. In the NBA, it's not unusual for a team to dominate at home and stink on the road. Take my Toronto Raptors, for instance.
Yesterday the Raptors trailed the New Orleans Hornets by as much as 16 points in the third quarter, but came back to win 102-99. It was their ninth win in their past ten games at the ACC. At home, the Raptors are a sweet 13-5. On the road, it's a different story all together. We've lost 11 straight and are a dismal 2-18.
If the Raps manage to win even 30% of their road games they'll win the Atlantic division. All I care is that they beat New Jersey.
