I think it's too early to tell. they definitely have a shot at the 8th spot. They need to achieve 36-26 to make it to .500.
Given they played 12 playoff teams and 11 road games, not to mention 6 close games, we can achieve 36-26. But games like tonight's are must win.
The main problem I see is players are demoralized just like this forum. It really comes down to how well Casey and his staff help them regain confidence and enthusiasm to play.
