This is the record needed for a .500 record. That is an average of two wins-I obviously rounded up- for every one loss. In looking at our schedule that does indeed look realistic. Lets just take the next 3 games Tor,Ind,Orl. We have a good chance of winning 2 of 3 with Orlando being the likely loss.
The problem is that we have been so eradict this season that there are no such thing as "should wins". I mean we are a team that went from beating Boston to losing to OKC and then three games later knocking off NO on the road. But, our condidence should be high after beating SA and we showed that last night.
The Good news is that our season series against Boston, SA, and LA are finished. And we only have one more game against The Cavs
The Bad news is that we havent started our season series against Orlando which could very well represent four losses in itself. We have 18 more road games and they are against some tough teams like Den and Utah. Plus the last game agains Clev is on the road-although that really doesnt matter either way I suppose-.
Bottom line we need the next two and I would love to see us steal one against Orlando. More wins now allow for a wider margin of error so we need to hit a nice win streak. Six would be nice to nulify the rough skid leading to The All Star Break.
