Thread: 2nd half of season and playoffs

  1. #1

    2nd half of season and playoffs

    Can this team reel off 5-10 wins in a row in the second half of the season, IF Gordon plays every game from here on and they continue to improve? Or, is that just not possible?
    We had quite a few interesting conversations as we pondered and navigated the nightly canopy.

    They reeled off 4 just now. I think they can reach at least 5.

    Next 13 games as I seem them:

    GSW - Win
    Kings - Win
    Spurs - Loss
    HOU - Win
    Grizzlies - Loss
    Lakers - Win
    Jazz - Win
    Nuggets - Win
    Wolves - Win
    Suns - Win
    Hawks - Win
    Raptors - Win
    Pistons - Win

    Give or take a loss against either the Lakers or Utah, and I can definitely see this happening.

    I'd agree, but my logic is this: GS is without Curry, Sacramento is a mess, Houston is at home, Nuggets are hit-or-miss, Wolves are injured, Suns just suck, Hawks are a mess, Raptors suck, Pistons suck.

    2nd half of season and playoffs

    I think we lose at Utah off a back to back. Hard to win there like that. Altitude issues, tough place to play. I like our chances better at LA the night before.

    But if we can stay healthy, I think we make it.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    That would put us at 24-28, or probably about five-8 ish games out of the playoffs. IF that happens, and that's a big if, I can easily see us making the playoffs. With that much steam, it would be difficult to stop any team.

    As fun as it is to think about, the winning percentage required to make the playoffs would be contention level winning. If you remember in CP3's last year, the team looked contention worthy in stretches but would follow a 10 game winning streak by a 10 game losing streak. Hopefully this team doesn't have any losing streaks in its future, but missing the playoffs by winning "only" 65% of the time from this point would be quite an accomplishment. That's 4-6 seed range if you play that way for a full season and is also about the rate the team has won the last 2 seasons when Gordon plays so it doesn't seem too unrealistic to aim for.
