It will be interesting to see how things do shake out now that we are sitting at .500. The Suns game you would think would be a win, however we know no game is a gimme with this team, then they go to Chicago, and then have a Detroit team that's playing pretty well coming here before they head off on a dreaded West Coast trip. I can't see any major changes taking place, unless this team really struggles and dips 6 or 7 games below .500.
I can see us getting there pretty quick though. If you look at our next 16 games (through Feb 6), I very easily can see us going 4-12 or 5-11, especially with Detroit playing a little better. I mean you can pencil losses next to at Bulls, at Lakers, at Suns, at Blazers, at Knicks, at Nuggets, and at Jazz right now. at Raptors, at Cavs, and at Pistons could go either way. Suns, Pistons, Sixers, Warriors, Bulls, and Magic at home I'm guessing 3 wins.
So I definitely think the Skiles heat could escalate. And I don't think it matters as I personally don't think Skiles is the reason for the mess.
