That's how I think it looks at the end of the year.

Miami is far and away the best team.

New York may give Miami fits during the regular season, I don't think any team stands a chance against them in the playoffs.
New York is the second best team this year.
Indiana and Chicago's defense will hold them in that second tier and when they get Granger and Rose back even partially healthy they are clearly a notch above other teams.
I don't think the third tier stands a chance against any of the second tier in the playoffs. Maybe push um a couple games, but none of them are winning a series. Boston stands the best chance of maybe doing it if they match up against Indy.
Tier 4 are sweeps.


I'd put Brooklyn in the 2nd tier. They are a talented squad and no longer have a complete dolt as their coach. I wouldn't be surprised to see them end up as the 2nd seed.

Nets beat the Knicks. They are now 1 game out of being tied for the 2nd seed.

I feel somewhat vindicated because so many people doubted them before the season (when I argued they'd battle for the 2nd seed) and then scoffed at those of us who applauded the firing of the useless Avery Johnson. I know AussieBuck and others were with me on that one. Avery is braindead.

I'm happy for that team because they have talent and they were being held back by a guy who doesn't even deserve to write useless articles on BleacherReport. It is astonishing how bad of a coach Avery Johnson was.

I wouldn't be surprised to see them with a better record but I refuse to put a team with a defense like that in the upper echelon of teams in the NBA. I think they stand no chance in a 7 game series against a team I had in the top four.

11 games until the deadline (Boylan 7-3 in first 10)

Last 10 under Boylan:

V Phoenix W
@ Chicago W
V Detroit L
@ Toronto W
@ Los Angeles L
@ Phoenix W
@ Portland W
V Philadelphia W
@ Cleveland L
V Golden State W


Next 11 before Deadline:

@ Detroit
V Chicago
@ New York
V Orlando
@ Denver
@ Utah
V Detroit
V Washington
V Philadelphia
-----All Star Break-----
@ Brooklyn
V Brooklyn
-----Trade Deadline-----



Should have won that Detroit home game and road Cleveland game. Next 11 shows a good opportunity to lock up a tough home court, but start it off by getting back a Detroit game in their place.

My guess is 6-5 but the way this season has gone who knows.

I'll go 7-4 starting with a big win in Detroit. Really I want to go 8-3, but they'll lose some **** game in there somewhere like usual.

With Atlanta losing tonight we are only 1 game back of the 6th seed, and 2.5 games back of the 3rd seed.

That's a pretty easy schedule, but I'll say they'll blow 2 home games in that stretch and go 4-2

They will go 2-3 on the road. I'll say win both games in the Big Apple.

Hoping for more. Even just a 7-4 stretch would look really nice.

I think best case scenario is 5-2 and I'll go 3-4. I think we'll drop both Rocky Mountain games, split the Nets, and go 2 of 3 in the other home games.

I think we win 1 of the away games and 3 of the 4 home games. So 4-3

Still think we finish anywhere between 6-8. Chicago and Indiana are too good defensively to drop or go on prolonged losing streaks. I also think we matchup poorly with both teams in a playoff series if it gets into a slow paced game.

I just wish everyone could enjoy the ride. I see both sides believe me. Seed and situation never concern me. It's in or out. That's all

I agree, I think the only team we'd have a shot against in the 1st round is Brooklyn or Atlanta. And I don't think Atlanta is going to get home court, Brooklyn might. I think the Bulls and Pacers are bad match-ups, the Heat are too talented, and the Knicks seem to have our number since Woodson took over.

I know not a lot of posters are on the PO bandwagon but Brooklyn, Atlanta, Indiana all lose so far and the Knicks are losing and the Bulls are in Utah.
