The Rockets, if they're the team above the Lakers, have to go 16-9 to get to 45 wins. 17-8 for 46, 18-7 for 47, 19-6 for 48. They're not near that pace right now. What makes anyone expect that to be the standard they play to? The teams behind, logically, have to go even better. The Jazz are on pace for about 46 wins...and they're ahead of Houston.
Good point, I didn't make a playoffs prediction for this exact reason.
