December watch.. 

Post#1 » by Beethoven » Sat Nov 30, 2019 11:23 pm

This is our toughest stretch of the season by far and it is relentless without any reprieve in schedule. Recall when LeBron usage was up going into Xmas last year and then he blew his groin. This is where the coaching staff got to show their pay.

Would love for us to just see the same thing and steamroll through this month but realistically what do you think our win stat would be after this month is over? This is the true litmus test of where we will be going into the playoffs i think. 8-)

A list of who we're playing would be good, rather then us having too look it up :)

Edit: we will lose our first game VS Mavericks, think they'll want revenge and they're a pretty good team

It will probably be 9-5 at best which will be very solid. I can't wish for anything better than 9-5.

Escaping December with a 26-7 record would be awesome.

Try to beat the mavs and nuggets, then rest bron and AD vs the Jazz. Rest of the games just play it out and hope for the best.

8-6, load management. We need to start sitting both AD/LBJ. Just pick two games you think you will probably lose, and let them rest.

We could go through that stretch at 10-4 with a little luck. Only Denver and the Bucks on the road and Clippers at home are guaranteed tough games. It will be a test of how we play to our advantages. Almost none of those team can match our size. If we’re chucking 3’s on the road with little rest then we will deserve to lose a few of these. If we pound the paint and put teams in foul trouble then we could do better than most here think. The defense will be a constant.... at least it has been so far.

Doesn't look like Vogel or LeBron are planning to do any kawhi style load management from what is implied from their interviews after the games. I do hope none of the premier games this month the other team comes in w any key injuries so there is no excuse for a win.

^yeah the more i look at the schedule it does seem more like the only real tough games are the @denver @milwaukee and Xmas clipper games. I'll be circling those three.

oof being right on the first game :)

Denver and Bucks will be hard and for my 4th team, I think unexpected team will beat us

Atlanta is that unexpected team

Ok let's shoot for 13-1. Just take it one game at a time. Just focus on tonite's game. Really laser zone in on the game and we can pull a win.

If we win tomorrow I think we can go unbeaten until we face Miami. Then that stretch until Christmas, excluding Atlanta, is all hard games.

If we win tonite , I say, we will sweep until @Milwaukee. Why would Miami be a problem?

9-5 would be solid. 8-6 is acceptable. Anything better than 9-5 though would be awesome, and anything lower than 8-6 would be disappointing for me personally. It's definitely a scary stretch

lol yeah this was what i was thinking at times ...they'll (haters) always find an excuse.

how about the chicago bulls in the 90s they had an easy stretch of 82-games schedules as well.
