The only "tough" games would be against Miami & Boston, both at home, and at Memphis.. If you defend your home court, beat Miami, and beat the below .500 teams on the road (except Memphis) you get to like a 7 game winning streak.. and if you keep playing well and beat memphis on the road, you can get to like an 11 game winning streak (new orleans sucks, minnesota and utah at home should be easy).
Boston is slumping again. 3-7 over the last 10. Miami is really the only tough team in that stretch, although Memphis on the road will be tough. No reason we can't go 8-2 in that stretch. That would put us at 29-16. Not bad for a team with so many holes.
That would prolly move us ahead of the Clippers for the 3rd spot in the west. A 3 seed in the playoffs avoids OK city till the west finals. I believe the Lakers are fully capable of beating anyone else in the west. Spurs are playing well right now, but I think they'll have peaked too early by the time the playoffs get here.
