This next short stretch is maybe the most important of the season. The pacers are inconsistant, we all know this, so i'm going to refrain from predicting the specific wins and losses the rest of the season and simply guess that we finish 8-4.
Yes I realize that that is optimistic, but i'm high on the direction the team is going in sans the memphis game, which imo was as much of a schedule loss as any game has been this year.
I do think that we'll beat Charlotte win we play though, they have no answer for roy, and tyler can eat diaw (Ty Thom isn't back yet correct?)
The milwaukee game is tougher though, as they are a much better team than charlotte, are getting healthy, and have a little voice constantly buzzing in their head named scott skiles, who won't accept anything less than top effort.
However even if we lose the milwaukee game 8-4 should get us comfortably into the playoffs with a record of 38-44.
This team is going to give me a coronary though, it's possible we destroy boston, atlanta and orlando while losing to sacto and washington.
Just let the difference between 38-44 playing such an inexperienced lineup, with their best years ahead of them, and the same record achieved on the backs of Posey and Dunleavy. It feels really, really good, and if we make the playoffs I think that the fans can get behind the team and be the jumping off point for sustained attendance progress next year. (that is provided we don't play the bulls and our fans can't get tickets because half the place drove down from chicago)
