Probably we'll win 5-6 of those, at best scenario.

Six if Lowry comes back healthy and we keep playing in sync, seven if we're lucky. Nine if we're REALLY lucky and Bargnani comes back in 2011-2012 form. If he plays the way the has all year? Four

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.

We will continue with this Magical run. I say we go 11-4 in that stretch. Jose will continue his magical play leading the point.....Amir, Davis,Ross DD,AA,MP, getting Lowry back and Bargs as part of the supporting cast and our 2013 is looking pretty good.

Its not an obsession its a reality my friend. Its based on facts.....right now we are playing well so why not keep it going. Our d is playing like it did last year. Remember we had Bargs in the line up last year....why cant we all not enjoy this run. Yes i agree i will be the first to say that I love Jose's game. Until someone else comes along that is better as a point guard its Jose running the point. Its not me pumping his tires there is no need for that as Jose just keeps out playing all challengers brought into the ring to take over his spot. Consider me a counter puncher in a heavy weight fight.....many come on here swinging from their heels to knock Jose on his ass.....all i do is counter punch putting many in disarray.

So I really like our team.....we need both Lowry and Bargs to support on whats happening here. Bargs was on page last year...somehow for whatever reason he has not been the same as last year.Lowry has to want to buy in ....the guy has so much talent however if your head is not in the right place then you become an issue. Hopefully Lowry buys into what we want to do because we really need that energy.

Jose's such a great PG but shockingly there was little if any interest in him when his contract had 2-3 years left

There wasn't much interest this summer either when we were once again trying to deal him.

15-0

as for Calderon "interest". I know you guys have obvious connects on the inside of Raps management, so seriously, you MUST know who was calling about what. I mean, really, all they do is play NBA2K13 and fiddle with the ESPN trade machine right...thats how it works right. Of course there was that one time, when some idiots here decided Calderon for Rudy Gay made sense, but I think Memphis, while busy building a winning team, forgot to pay its internet bill that day and couldnt work the trade machine....other than that, ya, guess you guys ar right, nobody was interested in Calderon...had they been, Colangelo would SURELY have posted it here.

Your brilliant logic is ruining little baby jesus' birthday

Calderon's style of play fits with this group of guys. This doesn't change the fact that he sucks in defense. But since the other 4 guys are good help defenders...especially the athletic frontcourt of Ed Davis and JV/Amir...it compensates Jose's lack of defensive IQ. Now if Barg is on the floor...you get 2 defensive liability and Calderon looks horrible (and plus, the offense becomes stagnant with Bargs on the floor). I wanna see Lowry with this group of athletic guys...and see what he can bring. Basketball is all about style of play...and right now the chemistry is clicking and hopefully we keep winning!

Lillard will destroy Calderon if Lowry's not back/starting by then.
