A lot could happen between now and January.
We still have a road trip to end this month (that hopefully we can win two of).
I'd like to be optimistic and say we 'could' go 10 - 5 in January.
8-2 @ Home (OKC and LAL losses) and even 2-3 on the road (they are all winnable road games, maybe not Mia). 2-1 to end Dec (Orl and NO are winnable road games this month)
A 12 - 6 record from now til the end of Jan puts us at 21 - 26. Playoff contention.
We'd also have to assume that BC is going to make some sort of move with this team. His job is on the line and I can not see him just sitting around for another whole month without trying to improve this team.
