Worried about the Indiana and Denver games. Indiana will want payback and Denver has looked solid lately. It would be nice to pull at least one game away from the Knicks though.

We better beat Indiana though. I just went through that game GIF-ing up Hansbrough. The guy's a tool, the amount of dirty plays he has is unbelievable. I GIF'd two so I could fuel a little hate the next time we play them but really I could have made 10. Ridiculous.

I'm just focusing on the 8th seed team. If we do well in those 10 games, we should have a good chance of passing Detroit + Philly as well

We basically have to go 26 - 5 the rest of the way to have a chance of making the playoffs. Crazy.

Current 8th seed
2012: Milwaukee / .510 / 25-24 (Projected ~42-40)

8th seed records over the last 5 years in the East
2011: Philly / .530 / 43-39 (35-31 actual)
2010: Indiana / .451/ 37-45
2009: Chicago / .500/ 41-41
2008: Detroit / .476 / 39-43
2007: Atlanta / .451 / 37-45

Roughly 39 wins on average
Raptors are 19-32

Need to go 20-11 in our next 31 games to meet that 39 win mark.

18 games remain vs +.500 teams, 13 vs -.500 teams

It's possible!

If we weren't screwed out of 4 games by reffing we'd be at 23-28, and need to go just 16-15 to make 39 wins

Considering playoff bound in the East has generally been hovering around 0.400 we wouldn't have ''too'' much trouble going there but we would need to hope other teams go on losing streaks and we get on a winning streak or two. That said, I do not want this team to reach the Playoffs this year. We don't nearly have enough pieces to win, if we make it, it would secure BC a job without him earning it, causing an early sweep by Lebron and the Miami Heat...

Milwaukee is not a playoff team and I think we deserve the 8th seed over them, regardless of record

This team is currently 7 games back of the 8th seed with two other teams in between. Not to mention they are 13 games under .500.

They can only lose 9 games the rest of the say to finish at .500. That simply is not happening and pretty much means we have no shot at the playoffs. Keeping those hopes up is how you end up with Gray starting or Anderson playing heavy minutes instead of developing Ross.

Can we please switch this to 9th Place Hope Thread?

One, finishing 9th is much more realistic.

Two, 9th place assures we send a low lottery pick to OKC and I hope all of our fans will join me in cheering for 9th.
