Typo: You stated the final 5 games were all against playoff teams, but we play the Nets as our 4th to last game who aren't a playoff team, but still, I get the point (must have been an obvious typo).
But I couldn't ask for it any other way. Time to get battle tested heading into the playoffs.
I would love to see this team head into the playoffs 4 games above .500 which would mean we improved after the trade by 2 games (went into the break 2 games above .500).
For that to happen we pretty much have to win our next 5.
One game @ a time, starting with the Cavs. I do feel we can win our next 5 games against Cleveland, Toronto, Philly, NJ & Indy. It's won't be easy, it'll be a grind (especially against Philly & Indy); but it's possible.
That would put us @ 4 games above .500 with two games to go.
Split the home & away with CHI & BOS & we're heading into the playoffs 4 games above .500. Anything better than that & we ran the table, heading into the playoffs 6 games above .500 riding a 9 game win streak.
