Default What the nuggets need to do

J.R. Smith is the key to winning if the Nuggets want to make this run for the last playoff spot or even the northwestern division. He has made critical three point shots when it counts and his play can change the game in a heartbeat. That is why they call him "the one man comeback man." We all know the key to the Nuggets must win games is their defense, but the question is can we play consistent enough to beat teams like the suns, spurs, mavs, lakers, and the other big west teams? I think Melo and A.I. needs to step up their game level.

I never understood why J.R. Smith isn't getting more minutes.I know he's got trouble off the court, but he has the talent to be a star in this league and he will reach his potential if he's given more minutes.And this experiment with A.I. and Melo obviously isn't working so imo we should trade A.I. for a true point guard or try to get Calderon in free agency, but the Raptors probably won't let him go.And fire the coach DAMMIT!!!!

Tell me what you guys think of these predictions, we'll probably win at least 1 game that I think we'll lose and lose one that I think we'll win...

March 14th: vs. Toronto Raptors: WIN
March 16th: vs. Seattle Supersonics: WIN
March 18th: @ Detroit Pistons: LOSS
March 19th: @ Philadelphia 76ers: WIN
March 21st: @ New Jersey Nets: WIN
March 23rd: @ Toronto Raptors: WIN
March 24th: @ Memphis Grizzlies: WIN
March 27th: vs. Dallas Mavericks: WIN
March 29th: vs. Golden State Warriors: WIN
March 31st: @ Phoenix Suns: LOSS

April 1st: vs. Phoenix Suns: WIN
April 5th: vs. Sacramento Kings: WIN
April 6th: @ Seattle Supersonics: WIN
April 8th: @ L.A. Clippers: WIN
April 10th: @ Golden State Warriors: LOSS
April 12th: @ Utah Jazz: LOSS
April 13th: vs. Houston: WIN
April 16th: vs Memphis Grizzlies: WIN

That'll give us a record of 52-30, most likely putting us into the playoffs, but THIS is probably what the Warriors will do:

March 15th: vs. Memphis Grizzlies: WIN
March 18th: @ Sacramento Kings: WIN
March 19th: @ L.A. Clippers: WIN
March 21st: vs. Houston Rockets: WIN
March 23rd: @ L.A. Lakers: LOSS
March 24th: vs. L.A. Lakers: WIN
March 27th: vs. Portland Trailblazers: WIN
March 29th: @ Denver Nuggets: LOSS
March 30th: vs. Dallas Mavericks: WIN

April 1st: @ San Antonio Spurs: LOSS
April 2nd: @ Dallas Mavericks: LOSS
April 4th: @ Memphis Grizzlies: WIN
April 6th: @ New Orleans Hornets: LOSS
April 8th: vs. Sacramento Kings: WIN
April 10th: vs. Denver Nuggets: WIN
April 12th: vs. L.A. Clippers: WIN
April 14th: @ Phoenix Suns:LOSS
April 16th: vs. Seattle Supersonics: WIN

That would give Golden State a record of 52-30 as well, so, who wins the tiebreaker and gets the playoff spot? If we won both of the Golden State games that would give us a huge boost, but the end of March looks like a tough stretch for the Nuggets, hopefully we can pull it out :\


Theoretically the Nuggets could lose 4 games in a row at the end of march(DAL,GSW,PHX,PHX) but at the same time the Warriors could lose 4 in the middle of march(HOU,LAL,LAL,POR) What do you guys see happening? This playoff race could continue down to the last game of the season, and by the looks of things, it will.
