Default The Next Eight Games

Looking at our upcoming schedule I see perhaps the only stretch of eight winnable games in a row we might encounter all season. Luckily it's also a do or die point as we've been in a slump and desperately need these wins going into the all-star break and generally just to stay in the playoff hunt. The games are:

Jan 24th vs. Grizzlies
Jan 26th vs. Sixers
Jan 28th vs. Bucks
Jan 29th @ TWolves
Jan 31st @ Pacers
Feb 2nd @ Hawks
Feb 4th vs. TWolves
Feb 6th @ Bucks

If we do great (6-8 wins) we're easily back in the thick of the playoff hunt.
If we do well (4-5 wins) we'll just be staying afloat in our crappy position.
If we do poorly (less than 4) than our guys have just given up and we genuinely are in full-on tank mode.

But, with the Grizz tomorrow and the Hawks on the 2nd being the hardest teams during this stretch, I think we have a genuine shot at winning eight in a row.
