Domination achieved. Season over for the rest of the league.


As frustrated as I get, I do think their real level is that of a 45-50 win team. But with all the games lost to injury/covid, they have some serious ground to make up.


Prior to tonight's game, they were projected to win 44 games. If I recall correctly, they have the 7th easiest schedule remaining.

If we can get through Philly and Chicago with at least one win, then we'll be .500 going into a stretch of winnable games against NO, CHA, POR, WAS, SAC, ATL, NO, (then a tough game against MIA,) then back to cake matchups until we play Brooklyn. No excuse to still be hovering around .500 at that point. We need to be able to consistently beat bad teams.

Oh, no! Seriously?

First off, nice to see you posting.

Secondly, you’re right. I’d like to think they will be 6+ games over .500 by the end of January.

Only one other time this season, the CHA game.

But they've only played 24 games together this year.

That's 8% of the games they play together. Not great.

That's how they should always beat down bad teams.

Problem with this team is they are perfectly capable of going like .500 even against that stretch.

Just finished 4-2 against ORL, SAS, NYK x2 and IND x2.
