5 Game road trip
 
This is a massive stretch before the all-star game. Get through it and the schedule opens up for us and we only play vs western conference a couple more times the rest of the way and have no more long road trips. If we can go 3-2 i'd be thrilled. Probably 2-3 though...


@Denver
@Portland
@Utah
@Sac
@Clippers


Thoughts?

They absolutely need to take care of business in Utah. SAC and DEN are 50-50 games imo, have to take one of those.

It's good that they have a 3 game buffer over .500 though.

Aamir 01-29-2014 10:14 PM

I'd be happy with 2-3 to be honest.

just4_raps 01-29-2014 10:16 PM

2-3 probably upset one of denver, portland or clippers

but lose 1 to utah or sac town

Psi 01-29-2014 10:17 PM

2-3 is the expectation, 3-2 is the goal.
Will be a tough stretch though.

pzabby 01-29-2014 11:21 PM

3-2.

we have a horrendous record against the nuggets, and portland is just a monster.

win the next two against teams not as good as us. and fight back to get a win over LA in a gritty style.

moremilk 01-29-2014 11:40 PM

3-2 would be very nice but I doubt it.

0nekhmer 01-30-2014 12:27 AM

2-0 without demar at this time :O

but yeah, 2-3 is realistic

Tran905 01-30-2014 12:27 AM

I'd be content with 2-3 tbh

10 01-30-2014 01:55 AM

I feel we can literally beat any team thats not Miami or IND.

The goal should be a 7 game winning streak going into the break.

Fröz-d 01-30-2014 01:57 AM

I think we squeak on out in Denver and finally get over that hump.
Lose to Portland.
Demolish Utah.
Sac game could be 50/50 but I'll take the raps.
and Last the raps get revenge vs. the Clips and
go 4-1 to put the league on notice :jack:

Tran905 01-30-2014 04:24 AM

Will Rudy light us up? Or will Ross plays lockdown defense on his ass

Rompeprop 01-30-2014 04:55 AM

At worst it will be 2-3, Utah W is pretty much booked and I see Raptors to get at least one W in the other 4 games. This road trip wont change our record and conference position much

Bankiz 01-30-2014 07:26 AM

denver is doable. lawson and robinson out with injury. so i hope we can win this one.
Portland, i think it will be closer than the first at home.
Ytah are in a good streak right now, so diffuclt to say, but i hope for a win.
SAC, i think our bench from sac will have in their heart to win this one.
and the clippers would be a nice game. i expect DD to be there and to want to destroy them.

3-2 will be very fine, like the last West road trip.
but a 4-1, would be way better and put distance between us and our immediate pursuiter.

gdaytday 01-30-2014 07:47 AM

It would really help to get the first win Friday night in Denver. I'm guessing that DD will be back. He was walking without any kind of noticeable limp at halftime.

Any word on how bad Amir's injury might have been? Going to be tough without him.

thought 01-30-2014 09:52 AM

I thought I heard confirmation on the radio that DeMar is playing tomorrow. 3-2 would be ideal, and I think it's doable.

I doubt that. I'd be surprised if he was in the lineup

Toby 01-30-2014 10:35 AM

here's my thoughts on the game in Portland


bjjs 01-30-2014 10:48 AM

Lose Denver
Win Portland
Lose Utah
Win Sacramento
Lose Clippers

Lose to Utah & Denver but beat Portland? :dead:

hoodz 01-30-2014 01:05 PM

4-1 losing to portland

pretty sure we can beat miami as well, came pretty close the last time

bit different being able to and actually doing it though. We probably have 10-20% odds in LA/Portland and 40-60% odds in the other 3. A 4-1 record is possible, but very unlikely. 5-0 would be miracle, 0-5 almost as well.

2-3 is most likely and 3-2 likely enough so we can hope for :)

Shadowfax 01-31-2014 11:16 AM

these 5 games will tell us a lot about this club...i'm thinking 3/5 would have to be considered a success

Owned 01-31-2014 11:55 AM

Beat Denver tonight
Lose to Portland
Beat Utah
Beat Sacramento
Lose to LAC

2-3 would be a success imo.

Diamond Scorpion 01-31-2014 04:26 PM

I can see us going 3-2 with wins over Denver, Utah and Sacramento. I believe DD returns tonight, so hopefully he will give us a little boost, but overall this team has played well while he was out.

JoeyJoJo Shabbadu 01-31-2014 07:29 PM

3 and 2 but would really like to see payback to the clippers and 4 and 1.

lankganglia 01-31-2014 11:22 PM

after the allstar our schedule is quite soft...just this roadtrip
portland tomorrow, but no more san ans or okcs

jeffb 02-06-2014 01:25 AM

2-3 it is then. No way we win Friday....you can quote me on that one.

rb 02-06-2014 01:34 AM

since you seem so sure of a loss if we win you have to cut off your left testicle
