This is what I'm worried about
Softest remaining strength of schedule (by Opp W-L):
1. Milwaukee .435
2. Atlanta .441
3. Philadelphia .460
So we're battling with 3 teams who have the easiest remaining schedule in the league.
Celtics have the toughest remaining schedule in the league but they are 3.5 games ahead of us and I simply don't see them falling out of the playoffs.
