If We Get the 5th or 6th Seed, Can We Win the First Round?

30 posts in this topic

We aren't catching the Nets or Bulls so it's between us and Washington for the six spot.

 

I think we absolutely can get out of the first round.

We're only 3 games behind Brooklyn with 2 games left against them.

Can we pull the 4 seed?

I just want the Bobcats to manage one playoff win before disappearing. Anything more than that is gravy for me.

Looking at the schedules, we realistically can only catch the Wizards. Which would give us the raptors. We can win a 7 game series against them for sure.

I think we have a chance to win any series except for Heat and Pacers.

 

With a true scoring Big man like Al we have a solid chance. He shoots at a high rate and not many teams can stop him down low. With solid defense and some other people hitting a shot here and there we could definitely win a first round series. I think we will win a game no matter who we draw in opening round

True, but the Nets are super hot right now.

Brooklyn is on fire lately.  They have the best record in the NBA since the start of January - they've only lost 9 games since then.  They've won 8 of their last 10.

 

Of their remaining 19 games, only 7 are against teams that would make the playoffs if the season ended today.  Don't feel good about catching up with them.  

 

All eyes on Washington, who are down Nene for a good chunk of time.  Their schedule is easy too, but they aren't playing at the same level as Brooklyn.

I don't know, I guess I just don't see Brooklyn being as good as everyone else does. You guys are probably right though, I doubt we'll catch them.

Look at Charlotte and Washington and Brooklyn schedules I posted in another thread. Unless they melt down against teams like Orlando and below .500 teams, we can't make up 3 games unless we win out

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
