It's mentioned as a reason for moving them up a couple of spots in the rankings. And no not maybe - there's only one way to read this. Stein is not making predictions, other than the streak continuing once they fall lower.
Look - I would say Stein is putting a little pre-emptive salve on our wounds.
The schedule looks nasty. They might not win another game for two months, depending on what happens with Melo and NJ. If jersey
stays shitty, then they might grab a couple of wins. That eighth spot is not going to be within reach soon enough.
