I don't want to get ahead of myself, and I don't want to disappoint those who want to tank, but if we can just tread water until we're at full strength, we wouldn't need an utterly ridiculous finish for the playoffs.
We are 14-19.
We have 14 games until the end of January.
There are some tough games and some miserable ones in that stretch. Denver, @Dallas, @Houston, @LAC, Cleveland, @Phoenix, @Toronto, @Chicago, @Miami, @Orlando, @NYK, Indiana, and Charlotte. If we can split those games, and I've put the winnable ones in bold (who knows about the Clippers without CP3), we'd be 21-26.
We have 35 games from February 1st to the end of the regular season. We'd have to go 24-11 to close the season to finish at 45 wins.
Its like Dr. Buss is guarding the Celtic rim this second half. Nothings dropping
