Only teams that matter. I doubt NY PHI MIL catch ORL. Schedule for the teams looks pretty balanced, MIL and NY face 3 teams playing over .500 and 3 teams under .500. PHI has the easier schedule but play 5/6 games on the road and a crucial game against MIL at MIL. MIL is outside looking in and if we take care of business we should get 7/8 seed. Only a massive choke would make us fall out of the playoffs.

However am I reading it correct that Philly ends their season with five road games in a row? That can't be right
PHI just lost at home. Not looking good for PHI, next 5 on the road and they have a 12-16 road record.
If the Bucks get in it will be because of Philly, not the Knicks. Im not worried about missing the playoffs now
if knicks win all their games and celtics lose all of theirs, we take atlantic division, unlikely, but possible, they have a tough schedule (magic, hawks, heat, bucks)
if Knicks win all their games, and magic win only 1/5 (cause you gotta assume theyll beat the bobcats) well take the tie, the rest of their games are against tough teams.
that clippers win means a lot. lets do this
Very proud of our lads for doing what was necessary:
Taking 1 from the Bulls as the underdogs, and splitting the Heat and Celtic games.
Bring on the cHeat.
Our next 2 games coming up are the Nets & Cavs, Is it safe to say were in the playoffs yet? its beginning to look that way
So we need to have a killer attitude and jump on these teams early in next two games and take away any thoughts they may have of upsetting us. If we jump out to a 20pt lead or so chances are they will both just give up and not try. The longer we leave them in the game the better their confidence gets.
So we now have a 2.5 lead over the bucks. Both teams SHOULD win tomorrow night.. Us over nets and them over wash.
We then will be down to 4 games left with a 2.5 game lead. We could then clinch a playoff spot Friday if we win and they lose cause we hold tiebreaker over them as well.
we would be 4-1.. they would be 5-1.. we win a tie??
although i really think they drop a few they would normally win due to not being a strong road team. however it may be better for us to tank and come in 8th and face bulls. I think that is a more favorable matchup first round for us then the Heat.

It's gonna be tough. We needed a once-in-a-million trey bucket dropping night to beat Boston by 8 yesterday.
You can't shoot like a maniac every game.
Knicks are in trouble with this one-dimensional Melo-ball theyr'e running. The fumes will run out soon then we'll be running on empty.
