Night of 3/29:

Somehow the Beal-less Wizards beat the Pacers.
Heat beat the Knicks.
Pels beat the Celtics.
Detroit up 18 against the Raptors 8min left.
Utah up 19 at half against the Cavs.

Hopefully Warriors beat the Bulls to complete another very good night for our playoff standing.

Boston, Indiana and NYK L’s tonight, profitable night for the Hornets. Gotta take care of business against Washington.

This, from today's ESPN:

"BPI projects that the Celtics and Heat -- last year's Eastern Conference finalists -- will finish fourth and fifth, respectively. Boston added Evan Fournier and Miami picked up Trevor Ariza, Victor Oladipo and Nemanja Bjelica ahead of the trade deadline. The Hornets, meanwhile, are projected to finish sixth, and make the playoffs for the first time in five years."

:banghead: :crazy: 4 out of the last 5 shows real possibilities for us in the playoffs, but we are missing one thing... A big man REBOUNDING MACHINE.. We got one but JB wouldn't give him the minutes.....Nick Richards...PLEASE pull BIZ and give him the minutes NOW to get him ready.

We have a 7-game advantage over the 11th seed (Toronto).

Hell, the 10th-place Bulls are 2.5 games ahead of them, too. Obviously still about 1/3 of the season to go, but the 4-10 range is coming together. Just gotta figure out the order.

Another damn good night for our playoff outlook:

Knicks lose to the T'Wolves
Celtics lose to the Mavs
Pacers lose to the Heat
Bulls lose to the Suns
Raptors lose to the Thunder

The Knicks one really surprised me. The Wolves came back from down 18 and in a dicey ending they won by 1. Really enjoyed tuning into the end of that one :wink:

NYK did is a favor and lost to the Mavs.

Huge game Sunday against Boston.

This team desperately needs to sign a 10-day player. Heck, I would even sign a guy named MJ.

Someone like Glenn Robinson III comes to mind.

I can’t help but scoreboard watch and look at the remaining games of the teams clustered at 4-8. Atlanta is looking like our biggest threat, so this game Sunday is pretty huge. Also if we manage to stay in 4th or even 5th, we have a real chance to win our first playoff series since 2002 when this was a different franchise all together.

Fully healthy I'm not scared of any team in the East after the top 3.

Embiid will absolutely crush us and Brooklyn is way too talented. We shouldn't have much chance at beating Milwaukee, but it could be a fun competitive series and they have a recent history of choking in the playoffs, so who knows.

I'll be happy with anything except 7th/8th, but its really going to be difficult to stay in the top 6. We've been getting some lucky breaks with teams missing players and the wheels could fall off real quick if our luck runs out.

Worst matchup for us is Philadelphia. We can’t match up with their size. Nets as well for additional reasons.

Took a double L today since Boston came back and upset Denver on the road. We are now in a 3 way tie for 5th.

Return to Charlotte Hornets
