    Regular season record and seeding: predictions

    Currently sitting 35-37 so I think we go 5-5 in the final 10.

    I'm going to say 40-42; seeded 9-11...I'd say if the games play out our chances are 25% 9th seed, 50% 10th seed, and 25% 11th seed.

    We have to play really well to go 5-5 with 5 at home and 5 on the road. We all know what a horrible road team we are so likely 1-4 or best case scenario 2-3. We're better than average at home so 2-3 to 4-1. I guess that blows my whole 5-5 theory. We could easily go 3-7 to 6-4.

    5-5 gives us a 75% chance to make the play in.
    6-4 gives us 100% chance to make the play in.

    Anything less than 5-5 and I see us in the lottery.

    Thoughts?

    Have you seen who are we playing untill the end of the season? Someone said we should have gone on a 7 game winning-streak or at least 6-1 against Rocket x2, OKC, Lakrers, Hornets, Spurs, Blazers, and we are now 3-3 and playing Charlotte next.
    Our games after that:
    2x Clippers
    GSW
    Sacramento
    Denver
    Memphis
    Portland
    New York
    Minnesota

    No1 of those teams is resting players except maybe Portland, and all of those are better then us (then what we showed this season). If Zion does not play at least 5 games, and i think he is playing 0 games we are going 3-7 at best, and probably 2-8...

    You're analyzing the situation too much. Regardless of an extra win or loss in the last 10, the majority of the season has been a massive failure, Zion hurt again as always, laker swap meaningless, coaching staff looks sus, BI refused to play over a toe, CJ can't run an offense, and it's just... Dire. Revel in it. Bath in it. Because deluding yourself into some last minute hope for a crumb of decency, lets the organization pass with providing a bad product 80% of the years. Sucks to suck, and we usually do.

    To be fair, for those that want some hope, this type of hope is all they are going to get out of this organization.

    Paul George injured his knee last night



    We play them twice in the next 6 games. The Clippers are currently the #5 seed, and only 2.5 games ahead of us in the standings.

    Kyrie was in a walking boot after getting stomped by Dylan Brooks. Dallas is currently the #8 seed, and only 1 game ahead of us in the standings.

    I don't think we're a good team. I am not holding my breath for a Zion return. I'm still rooting for the playoffs. More basketball = more fun.

    Ant Man is out Indefinitely for the Season for Minnesota, Kyrie left the last game in a Walking boot,Luka is out,Paul George is out for 3-4 weeks, and the clippers are in 5th and up 2 games on us. We play the clippers twice,GS once and home to Minnesota. The rest of the teams play one another. I truly believe we will move to 5th or 6th. We have won 2 straight games with Charlotte, PG-less clippers and a Dame-less blazers team up next

    I say Zion will be back right before the season ends and I believe the Pels will be in 5th or 6th seed.

    Have you seen the standings or follow what’s going on around the league ?

    We can beat all of those teams you listed. None of them are world beaters and we have beat them before. Ant Man is out for Minny,Paul George is out for 3 weeks, we should’ve beaten GS last game in SF and we will this time,dame won’t play for Portland, we can beat all these teams.

    We just lost to Houston, Lakers, and Thunder. Most of those teams are much better than those three, and Zion won't be evaluated again for 2-weeks. Get real.

    Go to the elite board if everyone over here is such a naive dummy that you need to mock.

    It’s like some people haven’t been watching the games, but just tune into the standings. The Pelicans are bad. They aren’t just miraculously going to become good.

    When we have no hope, the franchise pulls something out of their ***.

    When we have hope people get injured.

    Everyone rid your thoughts of all hope.
    BI, Zion, and CJ had a net rating of +3 when on the court together. BI and Zion had a +13.4, BI and CJ had a +13.2, Zion and CJ was just +5.4.

    BI and Zion worked. BI and CJ worked. It was CJ and Zion and all three together that didn't work.

    Have you been paying attention? Ant Man was questionable for tonight, will probably play on Friday. The Wolves also just got Towns back, Luka had 30 points tonight. George is out 2-3 weeks, not 3-4 weeks. Try keeping up.

    On these last 10 games i only see us winning 4 games max. (And that's me being optimistic) games against hornets, blazers and clips 2x.

    This message board is so toxic. The Pelicans are literally a half a game out right now and won the last 2 games by huge margins. Yall really are just unpleasant.

    You aren't exhausted with the Pels being a bad team? This is the 5th year in a row we have a losing record. We've had a losing record in 10 of the last 12 seasons, including this one.

    Yea, we are a half game out... of the play in. And those 2 games were against literally 2 of the 3 worst teams in the league, one of which we lost to before those wins.

    I recognize that my perspective right now is particularly doom and gloom, but at the same time, fans refusing to ignore the incompetence and dire state of the team isn't toxic. After all, we're on our second consecutive "franchise changing, generational talent" #1 pick who is constantly hurt. That's not too fun.

    George will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks.

    Then what good does it do to come to a message board to insult and belittle those who may still want to see how the rest of the season plays out?

    Agreed.

    It is one thing to be negative about the team. It is another think to mock those of us with hope. That is what's toxic about this place. No one's bashing those who root for losses and want Zion traded and Willie fired, etc. That's fine to feel negative about the team. Just don't be rude to those of us who derive pleasure from this team. I don't think that is an unfair request.
