So, here we are hovering a couple of games over .500 and now we have to face two surging teams. We're currently tied with Atlanta for 4th place in the East. Atlanta has won 4 in a row, 7 of their last 10, and is 14-12.
Detroit has won 5 in a row, 8 of their last 10, (including a big win over Boston) and is 20 - 7.
So we play Atlanta and then back to back games against Detroit! It would be really nice if we could beat Atlanta and split with Detroit. These next three games are going to be tough and are kind of a benchmark for where we stand at the end of the year.
(on a side note, Portland has won 10 in a row. Wow.)
