    Default The January Win/Loss Prediction Thread

    In another thread I called this month "winnable" but upon further review it's harder than I first thought. Here's the list; I'll make my predictions after I think about it a bit.

    Wed 2 vs Washington - W
    Fri 4 @ Boston - L
    Sat 5 vs Milwaukee - W
    Tue 8 vs Miami - W

    Thu 10 vs New York
    Sat 12 vs Charlotte
    Sun 13 @ Brooklyn
    Tue 15 @ Charlotte
    Wed 16 @ Orlando
    Fri 18 vs Houston
    Mon 21 @ Memphis
    Wed 23 @ Portland
    Sat 26 @ Utah
    Mon 28 @ Denver
    Wed 30 vs Detroit

    15 games, 8 on the road. A 3-game road trip, a 4-game road trip. One regular back to back and one 4-games-in-5-nights, 3 of which are on the road.

    Real tough month, should learn a lot about this team. I got:

    Wizards - W (I know, amazing prediction!!)
    @Boston - L
    Milwaukee - W
    Miami - L
    New York - L
    Charlotte - W
    @Brooklyn - L
    @Charlotte - W
    @Orlando - L
    Houston - L
    @Memphis - L
    @Portland - L
    @Utah - L
    @Denver - L
    Detroit - W

    So we need to flip 3 of those L's to win the month... holding homecourt against Houston, beating Orlando on the road, and taking one of the road games off Denver or Utah seem like the 3-4 that could go either way to me. If we pull that off and go 8-7 or 9-6 for the month I'll be really impressed with this team.

    I'd be pretty shocked to see us lose all 6 of those games.

    I see Denver and Utah as wins, and probably PDX.

    I wanna keep this thread alive because I'm curious how well I do or don't know this team. Need to win tonight because it is only getting harder as the month goes on.

    Agreed. It's important to know how much we know our team.

    I like to organize games by talent level rather than schedule difficulty because your positives/negatives tend to even out.

    I think we will lose 1 of the first batch, 3 in the second batch, and 2 in the last. Conceivably we can go 2-6 on the road and accomplish that as long as we take care of home court. Now, I think we will perform a bit better on the road than 2-6 and not win out at home because our home schedule is just as if not more difficult than our road schedule. But I think we will take 1 of Miami/NY at home and sweep the rest.

    I am terrible at these things because I genuinely feel the Pacers are going to win every game they play.

    I think 10-5 is very possible with how we're playing lately, but I could see us dropping one or two so it could be 8 or 9 wins but still that's good for this month. Pretty tough month. Hopefully we get granger back right after this and start pushing and getting momentum up for the playoffs. Then we're a team that no one wants to face.

    I don't see us dropping both the Miami and NYK games, but we will see.

    A stretch like this in years past would break the will to win of the Pacers. Hopefully the boys can bounce back after losing 3+ in a row.

    The loss in Utah makes the Denver a game a must win. Win in Denver and we're golden. No other options. Just win in Denver.

    Fascinating. I started off pretty well, but since then we've won games I predicted as losses and lost games I predicted as wins. We're sitting at 8-6 on the month for right now, and I expect to beat Detroit tonight and finish 9-6. Overall, despite the recent losses, this wasn't a bad month for us.

    Prediction-wise, though, I went 6-8. Who did better?

    Prediction-wise, I didn't participate in such a way as to obtain a record. But from my holistic view of grading our team, I did very well. I flipped a W/L between my second and third tiers, and if we win tonight I will have gotten our overall record right.

    10-5

    Pacers will lose one game a week. Random loss, but make it up by winning games they shouldn't.
