Default Last 8 games

vs WAS - W
vs MIA - W: their team is in a funk right now
vs BOS - L: hottest team in the league (winnable game)
@ NJ - W
@ CLE - W
@ ATL - L (winnable game)
vs LAC - W
@ CHA - W

back-to-backs bolded

I predict 6-2, which puts us at 36-30 which is equivalent to 45-37 in 82.

Not bad for an up and down shtstorm of a season.

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.

We need to not play Mike Bibby. Whenever he dribbles up the ball with that stupid bobbing motion he does with his body makes me nervous that he's going to turn it over. Not that Douglas is any better as it will also result in a TO (or a bad shot which is basically the equivalent of a TO)

i rather face the bulls as the 8th seed then try to move up, though both miami and chicago will beat us if we put out the current team

we desperately need amare for the first round agaist the bulls

miami's talent will flat out run us out in the first round.

Bolded ones are MUST WIN games.
If we can go 2-2 against the Heat,Celtics,Hawks and Clippers (3 of them played at home) we would be 36-30 which means one loss from the Bucks is enough for us to get into the playoffs.

But like I said winning those 4 games against shitty teams is a must.
Losing against any of those four teams would be a huge failure and might cost us a playoff spot.

Let's put it this way:
8-0 - not happening
7-1 - not happening either
6-2 - might happen,it would almost guarantee a playoff spot
5-3 - should happen,would put a lot of pressure on Milwaukee because they would have to go 7-1 to top us.
4-4 - pretty bad but we could still make the playoffs with that record with some luck
3-5 or worse - disaster

Default Re: Last 8 games

Bucks game was a stinker, but we were due for that. We're very dependent on our bench even when half of them are starting. When we don't go at teams in waves of energy we look like we did against Milwaukee. So I'm thinking 5 and 3 is very realistic which gets us in at 8 and Philly's woes are still questionable as they got a lot of road games.

Players who have stepped up their game since Amare and Lin went down:

Tyson - 11.2 points , 11.9 rebounds (4.2 off) , 1.4 blocks 68% FG

Melo - 30 points , 7.4 rebounds , 2.9 assists , 1.7 steals , 0.8 blocks , 50% FG , 40% 3-pt

Shumpert - 14.2 points , 4 rebounds , 2.8 assists , 2 steals , 45% FG , 43% 3-pt

Bold - major improvement

If only the results will be the same this tame.

I would be really happy with 2-1.
3-0 would be too good to be true.

Howard's back is REALLY bothering him.

http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap...pinion_On_Back

Orlando's remaining schedule:

vs ATL, @CLE, vs PHI, @BOS, @UTA, @DEN, vs CHA, @MEM

He is not playing tonight against Atlanta and listed as possible against Cleveland.

This is our one and only shot at the 6th seed. Howard has missed 4 out of the last 6 games because of this nagging back issue.

Default Re: Last 8 games

In the 4 games without Howard this month, the Magic have performed thusly:

vs Den: W 104-101
@ Det: L 95-102
vs Det: W 119-89
@ Was: L 85-93

This suggests that they are still formidable at home, but on the road without Howard they are very much beatable, even by lottery teams.

Odds are Atlanta takes tonight's game and then Cleveland steals the next one if Howard doesn't suit up.

Remember, although we are 4 games behind the Magic right now, all we have to do is tie them to leap above them in the standings. We have the tiebreaker.
