    That is what we must do if we are to reach the holy grail of 60 Wins.

    Can we do it?

    Basically meaning we can lose a game every 3.5 games we play...so every 3-4 games.

    I think its doable.

    I said no. There's too many tough road gmaes and teams that want to beat the Pacers left.

    They'll probably lose one of these last two on the current trip, also I see the game in Cleveland as tough, the Sacto game, the Memphis game, the back to back vs Milwaukee, and the game vs Detroit, and New Jersey as games that are going to be very tough. That's quite a bit more than 6, I see anywhere from 55-58 wins.

    Quick stat for you With Tins as the starter we are 24-6

    Thats a little better than the 15-6 we need to get to 60. I predict 62 wins.

    Heck - I came up with 17-4 as an over-under myself.

    Figure losses at Denver, Memphis, Detroit and the Bucks. Win the rest.

    Now it'll probably be a game or two under that. One of the problems with the top teams - they almost never meet the over under because there's so much room to lose one they should win and here there are only 4 games they could win that I think they should lose.

    60's there for the taking.

    15-6 is very realistic, reasonable and real number.

    If we are in such a position, I would rather rest players than get 60 wins.

    I'm with the majority here, pretty sure we will go at least 15 -6 but also some of those teams we will want to win against, (sacto, NJ) further, the entire schedule is sort of relfected in the last 21 games, which would translte into going 16 - 5 OR 14 - 7

    since it's in the middle, I will guess we can do it, and it looks like a target they set themselves those 60 wins.

    Hicks, I was wondering the same exact thing a few moments ago as I was looking at the standings.

    I would have to answer yes and there are several great reasons why.

    1. They haven't lost more than 2 games in a row this entire season.

    2. This portion of the schedule is easy in comparison to the first half of the season.

    3. They've been on a 8-2 pace over their last 10 and are 16-5 over their previous 21 games.

    4. 12 of those 21 games are against teams below .500.



    The Pacers are in great shape to set a new franchise record.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Here is the Kings schedule from here on out.

    They are 46-15 as of now.

    We finish 60-22 the Kings would need to go 13-8 down the stretch for us to get home court, should we meet them for the championship.

    13-8? Try 14-7. 45-16 + 14-7 = 59-23.

    If the Kings have a 59-23 record, we have to be 60-22 to assure home court.

    Past that, as it currently stands we have the first tie breaker, so if we go 60-22 they need to go 15-6 to have a chance. So don't be so fast to make it easy for the Kings, Jose.

    That aside, our last 16 games have gone WWWLWWWLWWWLWWWW. If we can keep up with "WWWL" IE for every 4 games we go at least 3-1, we will go 15-5 and end up at 61-21. I think that's actually do-able. Especially with Ron already here. Hell, he's the reason we're 3-0 on this trip already. I think we'd be 1-2 at best had he stayed on the IL.

    Here's the schedule, but let's break it into blocks of 4 this time:

    Code:
      7 Sun  @ Denver
      9 Tue  Toronto
      12 Fri  @ Boston
      14 Sun  @ Cleveland
    Well, this should be a 4-0 stretch, really. Denver worries me in that they could be mad as a hornet right now and just blow up on us, but assuming we keep them in check, we come home 4-0 on the West trip, and our reward is to beat up Toronto at home. Boston isn't as dangerous they were with O'Brien there, and we were the better team then. I think we can win that one. Cleveland is getting better, and this is their last chance to beat us and it's in their house. Again I think we can win, but it'll be pretty tough. Let's say we drop this one. That leaves us at 3-1 for this block.

    Code:
      17 Wed  Portland
      19 Fri  Sacramento
      20 Sat  @ Memphis
      22 Mon  Chicago
    This is tougher. Portland can give you trouble, but then after the trade they haven't been so hot. Combine that with we're at home, and I think we take this one. The next two are ones I'd have to play the optimist to say with certainty we'll win. I'd say both are 50/50. Chicago at Conseco better be a gimme, and we need some realistic balance to this thing, so I'll say we go 2-2

    Code:
      24 Wed  Dallas
      26 Fri  @ Orlando
      28 Sun  Miami
      30 Tue  @ Milwaukee
    Dallas will be looking for payback, but we're at home and we should be up to play them anyway. It all depends on how hot the Mavs get. I'll have to say 50/50 again. @ Orlando: They give us trouble, but really, we should take care of business. Miami at home, same deal. @ Milwaukee will be tough. It's one of those inferior teams that's built in such a way to give us real problems anyway. However, we're due to beat them, so I saw we win. That makes us 3-1 here.

    Code:
      31 Wed  Milwaukee
     April
      2 Fri  Toronto
      4 Sun  @ Detroit
      6 Tue  New York
    Milwaukee again. Well, if my prediction comes true and we get them at their house, I think we'll make it a sweep and take'm at home too. Toronto in our house again, should be another victory. @ Detroit. Asking me to tell you what will happen here is impossible. I'll write it off as a loss to be conservative, though. New York will be ours. Period. Another 3-1 stretch.

    Code:
      7 Wed  @ Toronto
      9 Fri  New Jersey
      12 Mon  @ Philadelphia
      14 Wed  Chicago
    Ah, the Final Stretch. We into Toronto, and they are playing the role of spoiler. We'll either be gearing up for the playoffs and already be in the middle of our push toward it, or we're resting JO. Assuming JO doesn't sit, I think we can hold on once again in Toronto. They just happen to be a team that Al does well against, apparently, and he + JO + Ron having decent games is too much for that team. You know we'll be up for New Jersey, and I'm feeling good about this one for one reason or another, and I say we get it. Philadelphia is hard to guess. Either they're still missing guys and have given up on the year, which means they're just playing to spoil, or they've gone on enough of a role that they're fighting for a playoff seed, and it becomes a battle. Again, to keep balance I say we lose here. We'd damn well better win the Chicago game. 3-1

    If that's how it goes down, we'll end up 60-22.

    The most "up in the air" games for me are vs Sacramento, vs Dallas, and @ Detroit. If we win any of these, we're either 61-21, 62-20, or 63-19.

    We need to go 13-6 to reach 60 wins now. The longer this win streak goes, the easier and more likely it sounds.

    I have the feeling we lose in Boston and start a new streak by beating the Cavs.

    Actually, it's 12-6 now.

    It'll be 8-6 before we lose another game.

    I stand corrected.

    We will end the season 61-21 or better, unless with a few games to go we lock up homecourt for the whole playoffs, in which case, RC sits down the starters to avoid injury. For example, if we win ten more in a row and we're at 58-16 with 8 to go (or some such scenario), we could end up 59-23. But I don's see us clinching homecourt for the whole playoffs that early, so I'm sticking with 61-21.
