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.

Dropping both to Minnesota would be very progressive. But as a supporter of the tank ideal, this stretch worries me, tbh.

As long as Kevin Love doesn't break Wilt Chamberlains rebounding record on us or make Bargnani cry it's all good.

c'mon man lets get realistic, we need losses not wins, going 6 and 8 would hurt us more than help us, lets go 1 and 13

just fight hard, and that will be fine.

4-4

Acie 01-24-2011 09:45 AM

2-6

We're a horrible road team, so there's 4 losses and we'll go 2 -2 at home.

All these games are very winnable, except the Hawks game.

OUr injuries are really killing us this year. Doesnt help with a young team trying to mesh together, when they can even practise to gether.

2-6. The first three games are bad matchups for us home or away. We'll go 1-1 against the T'Wolves and pick up the game against the Pacers.

Tankatron has been going swimmingly, I won't give up hope

You are truly a delusional basketball fan. Honestly, you're expecting a team with 9 players dressed, that is currently 13-31, to magically go on a 8 game win streak?

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

So 3-4, and 3-5 if you include the Grizz game.

Although, I'm hoping for a hard fought, 0-8.
