Thread: Predict Hornets record through first 10 games

  1. #26
    Not sure why it's a high fiving event to predict a person who has been pessimistic about the team would be on the low end of the 1st 10 games.

    realistically i will say 5-5, but 6-4 is obtainable. 7 and 8 wins (out of 10) wont come early on. We will get in better runs come February when the team starts to mesh.

    Yeah I'm not surprised by the 2 win pick considering who it came from.

    I think we should all say 2-8 or maybe even 1-9. So then when/if they win more games, we can all be pleasantly surprised.

    Since this kind of pertains to one of the first ten games we'll be playing, I figured I'd post it here that Manu will not be playing Wednesday. Stephen Jackson to get Manu's minutes.

    ETA:

    Mike Monroe ‏@Monroe_SA
    @DaTrillStak5 will get Manu's minutes in #Spurs opener vs. Hornets

    9m Mike Monroe ‏@Monroe_SA
    @manuginobili won't travel to New Orleans for opener; back to be reassessed Thursday

    Wed 31 vs San Antonio W

    Sat 3 @ Chicago W
    Wed 7 vs Philadelphia L

    Fri 16 vs Oklahoma City L
    Sat 17 @ Milwaukee W
    Tue 20 vs New York W
    Wed 21 @ Indiana L

    I think we open with the win. Both of Monty's teams have started out 2-0, and the Arena should be pumping.

    After that, 4-6. The one wildcard I'm going with is us beating the Bulls on the road. If our guards can stay healthy, I could see a steal there.

    I'm going to say 5-5 and wouldn't be surprised if it shifted a game one way or the other....play like they did against Miami and I have underestimated them a good bit....oh, and Gordon is a huge wildcard....

    This team turns it over way to much to win any road games right now.

    4-6. The Rockets, Bucks and Jazz games could swing our way.. But then again, all of the others can swing away from us

    we will go .500 which id be happy with..

    wins against UTA PHI CHA HOU and MIL

    with a slight chance to get the SA and IND games. against SA - its the first game of the new Hornets era, home game, everyone is jacked up and Manu is unavailable; against IND - depending on EJ, whether he will go off on his hometown team for 30+ points.

    to be 6-4 or 7-3 - We should be very ecstatic, and will have good reason to be optimistic about having a winning season.

    7-3. Gordon, Anderson, and Monty's coaching continue to be underrated.

    This was going to happen until I just jinxed it all.

    That puts them at 4-6 to start the season.
    6-4 with a great chance of a 7-3

    No Manu for Wednesday's opener... just saw on the ESPN ticker that he'll miss the game.

    For me, the Hornets winning on opening night is the real kicker. If they can open the season with a win, I think they could go 3-0 to start the season, 4-1 in first 5 (take an L vs Philadelphia), and 6-4 in first 10 games.

    Really the teams success is dependent upon Eric Gordon playing in all ten games, and playing at least 30 minutes in each game.

    5-5......it's going to be bumpy road Monty trying line-ups and players to get the best players to win games but we will be a very competitve team.... teams will give us there A game...... it's not how you start but how you finish.... every season bring changes, injuries, trades and some players not panning out etc.....

    Think .500 is realistic. Everyone thinks 35ish wins was realistic but when they do this pickem they don't use the same logic. I think the beginning of the season will be worse than the first second though.

    Has Gordon decided if he is playing or will he ride the bench the entire season again?

    Go read the Gordon thread and decide for yourself.

    I could see a win over the Spurs now that Manu won't play. I'm 50/50 on that one though. The Spurs are a veteran team and have won countless tough games without Manu. Hornets are young and inexperienced. They still don't know how to play with each other yet.

    I also heard Amare will be out 6 weeks for the Knicks. I have the Hornets winning that one anyway. I still think 4-6 or 5-5 is a safe bet, and probably a bit optimistic.

    Most people think 40 wins is the best case scenario for the Hornets this year. 5-5 through 10 puts them on pace for that. With a young & inexperienced team, I imagine they'll finish the season stronger than they start. So 3-7 or 4-6 is probably the most likely scenario.
