Thread: Who Will NOT make the playoffs in the East?

    Default Who Will NOT make the playoffs in the East?

    Out of the nine contenders, I left off the Magic, which one will fall short of the playoffs? My guess is Milwaukee will be the popular choice.

    tough call. I think it is between Magic, Sixers and Bucks. Only 1 of those three will make it. I suppose if I had to choose I would pick the Sixers to make the playoffs.

    Collins is great, but without Bynum I don't think they have enough to get in. If I knew he was for certain coming back, I'd probably vote for the Bucks.

    Magic's not an option Buck...

    I would really love it if the Knicks completely collapsed in the 2nd half of the season and missed the playoffs. I don't think it's likely, but it would be something I would enjoy immensely.

    I knew I shouldn't have even put Miami on the list because people would vote for them to be funny haha

    Basically it's a question of Milwaukee or Philly to me, barring of course the unexpected. Tough call. Two good coaches who tend to get as much out of players as they can and have them playing playoff-style ball. Neither has a good front court IMO. One has Holiday and Turner, the other Jennings and Ellis, in the backcourt. Smaller/stretchy fours. Tough call.

    Right now, here are their respective Off Eff and Def Eff:

    Philly: 99.3 and 101.6 (Net of -2.3)
    Milwaukee: 99.3 and 100.9. (Net of -1.6)

    So I'll give the nod to the Bucks making the playoffs and Philly missing them, but it's truly a toss up at this point.

    I don't see why most of you are saying Milwaukee. They have a great coach, some good talent, and they have a decent record right now although unspectacular.

    Philly has an even better coach and they have some good talent too. Plus, if Bynum gets healthy enough to play...... ...

    Every Pacer fan would love that only slightly less than making the playoffs ourselves.

    Even with Bynum being healthy the Bucks are still better.

    I just hope it's not the Pacers!

    Anyway, it's hard to determine right now as things get clearer at the 2nd half of the season. You see struggling teams suddenly get a momentum. You see some of the top 8 suddenly losing the race.

    Right now, the tendency to fall off are the Sixers. The loss of Iggy and with Bynum not yet ready, things will start to get really hard for them.

    I picked Philly, but I think the bottom spots will be decided by injuries. If Philly gets Bynum back I think they move by the Bucks, but it will depend on how soon they get him back. Of course other teams could suddenly drop if the injury bug hits them too.
