Re: Last 8 games
I actually think we go 6-2 at the very least.
So far without Lin and Amare the team has gone 6-3 and that stretch was against better teams than we have to face in the next 8. Also, Amare is returning against the Wizards Friday.
if we do go 6-2, Orlando would have to go 2-6 the rest of the way for us to tie them. Looking at their schedule, I think it is conceivable.
vs ATL, @CLE, vs PHI, @BOS, @UTA, @DEN, vs CHA, @MEM
and here is Philly's schedule as well.
vs NJ, @ORL, vs IND, @CLE, @IND, @NJ, @MIL, @DET
Atlantic division seems out of reach but the 6th seed isn't.
