14 @NO W
15 Dallas W (beware of Mayo in kobe Mode)(if Rubio is back we'll win this one)
17 @Orlando W (if not too tired)
18 @Miami L
20 OKC L
23 @NY L

i'm guessing 3 - 3


Our schedule is really getting more difficult in the next weeks.

We need to beat New Orleans tomorrow to have a good start to this tough stretch of games. Dallas should be winnable, too, but it's gonna be an ugly one. b2b wins are always ugly. :lol:

Key games for 12/13/12

LAL VS NYK
SAS VS POR - (Only because I despise Portland with the exception of Lillard)

Key games for 12/14/12

It seems like all the Western teams fighting for a playoff spots have some "Easy" games for friday..take a look:

DAL vs TOR
LAL vs WAS
GSW vs ORL

Our game: MIN vs NOH

BOS vs HOU
UTA vs PHX
MEM vs DEN - Denver, GSW and Utah could be the 3 teams we're fighting with for the last 3 spots.

Thanks for doing this. Was going to after last night, but forgot.

We really need to win the games we should win from here on out. There isn't a lot of room for error. We need 3-3 .

It's really good to see that we are actually in the playoffs with Rubio being out, Love shooting like a turd and all the other injuries. Rubio's going to cover up a lot of our problems..and allow us to see what we really will need.

It's really amazing if you think about it. Our starting 5 coming into the season

Rubio: yet to play
Roy: Has played just 5 of team's 19 games
Kirilenko: Missed 4 games
Love: Missed 9 games. Struggling on offense.
Pekovic: Missed 2 games. Struggling offensively

Only 3 players have played all 19 games: Ridnour, Shved, Cunningham

And yet, we came into tonight 7th in the West, and are possibly a game away from Rubio making his debut.

I think we can go at least 3-2 in next 5, if we see some Rubio magic. Why wouldn't Miami or OKC fall? Maybe even both. I think just Nicks one isn't winnable.

We are making the playoffs this year.

Write it down, ship it out. We are there.
"What can I say. We were lucky. I thought we would lose all the way. We didn't play well, but well enough to win." - Mavs coach Don Nelson after the same game.

Nothing like a loss like tonight's to keep you grounded. It's far too early for ANY playoff talk.

good point.
even though we hate to lose a winnable game, we can use this loss to ponder what the team still needs
in order to improve. even though we have a solid lineup, we still have a lot of work to do

Update 12/22/12

Currently 6th seed

Image

Key games

UTA @ MIA - Should be a game where Miami is a heavy favorite
MEM @ HOU - Have to keep the teams in the hunt for the 7th and 8th seed far, FAR away
CHA @ DEN - Looks like Denver should win this one though...

Undecided .... LAL @ GSW ..Do we want LAL to keep losing? Or do we think GSW will falter and become a lower seed?
