After Sunday we begin our March madness. What a horrible month.
We play 18 games in 31 days(9 home and 9 away) with no more than 1 day off between games and 5 back to backs.
How do you guys think we will fare? I think it would be very good to just go 9-9 or 10-8.

11 or 12 wins would be nice.

11 or 12 wins would be nice.
Just to stay at .500 would be nice. I don't want to get stuck playing Detroit in the second round. I'd rather play them in the ECFs.

Actually it could be worse, teams that we play in this month are mostly average. However, playing back to back and away :-o 50% would be nice.

If Saras starts it will be 75% :laugh:

This schedule makes me wanna throw up.

The best thing I can say about it is that theyre are quite a few teams hovering .500 and under. :shrug:

Looking at the schedule, and it is brutal, the upcoming initial run of 6 of 7 on the road looks big. If we could somehow go .500 in those 6 road games, and protect home court against NYK and then hit that four game homestand, we'd be in position to make out fairly well all things considered. I'm sure fatigue will be a factor but, if I'm reading correctly, there are only two back to back sets. So that could have been worse.

Tinsley and/or Cro coming back could be a factor too.

march maybe rough, but i think april is going to be a great month for the pacers. 10 of the 11 teams we play are below .500. jo, tins, and cro should be back at 100%. hopefully we can rattle off a nice winning streak and build some chemistry going into the postseason.

While the number of games in so short a time is rough for the team. Its glorious for the fans. A new game almost every day!

I would guess that we will 9 for 18 ( probably 6 wins at home and 3 wins on the road ).

This depends on when JONeal, Tinsley and Croshere returns. It maybe a blessing in disguise....the earlier they come back.....the earlier we have to work out the kinks.

If we come out .500 in the next month.....with Tinsley ( hopefully coming back in a week or so )...and hopefully JONeal coming back by the 3rd week of March.....I will be happy with that. I don't mind losing games when Tinsley, Croshere and JONeal come back...cuz we are essentially integrating in new pieces to a new offense....so losses are expected.

I just hope we can get the ship back in running condition by the 1st week of June.
