If we continue to win 3, lose 2, win 2, lose 2, etc the rest of the way I will be very disappointed.

We've also won 9 of our last 13.

I don't think we need 20. 18 should do it.

Average 45.4. First team out was 48, 46, 44, 43 twice, 42 twice, 41, 40, and 39. Average 42.8.

How much would you bet that 43 isn't enough?
I will say, 43 is the PERFECT over/under. I can totally see this team playing very well over the final stretch and getting 43 wins, but I personally do not think it will be enough barring a season-ending injury to Harden which the projections don't take in to account.
Trodgers, which team does your projections say will miss the playoffs thereby allowing us in?
