Raptors Game Day - Back in the Playoff race?

So the raptors have started 09' off with a bang. They roll in to Milwaukee tonight to face a equally average Bucks team. This is what the kids might call a "winnable" game.
If the raptors can take care of business tonight and then beat the Wizards and Grizz later this week they could very well see themselves back in the playoff race.

Consider that they are currently 1.5 games back of the eighth spot which coincidentally is held by the Bucks. A win tonight puts them 1/2 a game back and with the 2 other winnable games this week things could get interesting.

I've maintained that eighth is not where this team needs to be. They WILL lose in 4 or 5 to the Celtics or Cavs but at this point in the year I think its great that they might have a shot to redeem themselves a little.
