I see 5 wins and 20 losses. Finishing at 28 and 54. 7th pick in the draft.

Even though my reasonable logic says you're right. I'm getting a horrible feeling we'll start winning matches we're not supposed to and end up 10th in the East and with the 11th pick again. :(

I hope I'm wrong.

I see a couple more wins than that. I actually think they will finish 10-15. That will put there record at 33-49 which will get them about the 8th pick I am just guessing. I hope it will be higher to possibly atract some trades for maybe some expirings and a veteran PF. I do not like this draft's depth and I think they would be better suited to try and trade for a PF and a later pick.

It really depends if Danny comes back or not. If he doesn't, my guess is the Pacers will win beween 5-7. If Danny comes back, "maybe" 8-10. Either way the Pacers are a lottery pick team.

Why would he?

Danny is said to be out 10 days to three weeks. I think it will be closer to three weeks, because they will be cautious with him, so I see him coming back for the Utah game. That's him missing 8 more games.

Since the start of the year we have gone 13-13. (.500 ball) If . . . that's a big IF. If no one gets injured, I think we can still go .500 the rest of the year. Of course we have 25 games to go and we can't do .500 over them, but if we win 12 of them that's a total of 35 wins. That won't get us in the playoffs.

I think it will take at least 38.

My guess is 6-19 the rest of the way.

Memphis here is a W

Maybe get a couple on the western swing at Sacramento & against the Clippers.

Washington here should be a W

Against Oklahoma City might be a W

The final game at home against the Bucks should be a W for no other reason than its the final game & its here.

29-53 & man I hope we pick up a few more wins along the way. I think that should put us somewhere around 9th going into the lottery.

It could be 7 wins based on the fact some teams are not going to be driven to win
to the end like the Pacers will be. Some teams will literally pack it in and tank.

O.K. all you pessimists, I came up with 7 wins.

I'm seeing 8 or 9, but given my incredibly bad results from the two sets of projections I did earlier, one in Dec and one in late Jan, I'm hopeful that the "opposite" rule applies, resulting in a 17-8 record.
























I'm not holding my breath.

Every time I make a projection, an injury comes along to throw the whole reasoning out the window. I'm not going to make any more predictions.

I see us actually pulling alot of wins, that no one expects us to ...

I am gonna say we are gonna come away playing .500 the rest of the way ...
But the hopeful optimist in me says maybe 14 to 15 wins .. lol

GO PACERS !!

I see 11 wins, but that may just be optimism.

Is Eastern Indiana Hospital for the Insane still in Richmond? :devil:

I think we'll still manage to finish with 30-32 wins somehow. We always seem to do what is not in the best interest of the franchise.

We might as well shut down Danny for this season to let him get at 100% same for Dun Dun. Its not worth them risking long term injury (see Jermaine O'Neal) for a #8 seed or less.

Let the rookies get some experience.

What the heck?

15-10

The Pacers finish 38-44 and just miss the playoffs.

It's really a pretty easy schedule. I think the minimum is 7 (counting yesterday's win). I could very easily see them winning 10+ even if Danny doesn't come back. This is a scrappy team that's not going to stop fighting and there's more talent out there than most people think.
