    Anthem, buddy, pal. What math course did you take that said we have to win 13 games to go from 43 to 52 wins?

    I'd say the best we could hope for would be 50-18. More likely 49-19.

    50-18 means going 7-2. I'll take it.

    I'm dyslexic.

    I was trying to figure out how Shade thought we'd go from 43-16 to 56-16.

    Looking for 56 wins instead of 53.

    It never hurts to look for more wins.

    Seriously, you didn't change it? I swear I saw that first number as 56...

    Time to check myself back into the Center. Home away from home...

    I didn't change it. And, actually, it's 52. Not 53.

    Well, Dark-coolness-under-leafy-tree, you went out on large limb on March 1, and I followed lead on March 7 with this post for rest of season:

    Going out on a limb, here, (WAAAAAAAY OUT ON A LIMB!) and laying down my game-by-game predictions for the final 19 games of the season.

    March 9 Toronto WIN
    March 12 @ Boston WIN
    March 14 @ Cleveland WIN
    March 17 Portland WIN
    March 19 Sacramento LOSS
    March 20 @ Memphis LOSS
    March 22 Chicago WIN
    March 24 Dallas LOSS
    March 26 @ Orlando WIN
    March 28 Miami WIN
    March 30 @ Milwaukee WIN
    March 31 Milwaukee WIN
    April 2 Toronto WIN
    April 4 @ Detroit LOSS
    April 6 New York WIN
    April 7 @ Toronto WIN
    April 9 New Jersey LOSS
    April 12 @ Philadelphia WIN
    April 14 Chicago WIN

    The Pacers go 14-5 for the rest of the regular season, finish at 61-21, with the best record in the league and go to the NBA finals.
    You one wise man of round ball!

    I think you might be one game short, but it's still possible they meet your prediction.

    your limb isn't looking so massive now. nice!
    Is that a compliment, or an insult?
