That Atlanta game double screwed us, because Washington lost to Sacramento last night.

Updated: The way Brooklyn is playing it looks like they will be the 5th seed which leaves us fighting with Washington for the 6th seed.

The Wizards upcoming schedule is semi-difficult.

- @ Portland

- @ LAL

- @ Denver

- @ Phoenix

- vs. Indiana

- vs. Atlanta

- @ Charlotte

They could easily go 2-5 or 1-6.

We need to capitalize by beating one of Houston or Portland then beat Brooklyn which puts us into the super easy part of our schedule where we could easily go 7-0 down the stretch.

It all starts with these next three games though. We HAVE to go 2-1 in the next three.

Only 2 games behind 6th and 1 game ahead of 8th. We can end up anywhere it's exciting

Portland didn't impress me too much when I saw them in San Antonio... I think we can take em... If splitter was workin on Em I think Al will do well

I really don't think the Wizards will win a game on their road trip... they're just not a good road team (they lost @SacTown last night).

If we go 3-1 in our next four, which is difficult but possible... (vs PTL, vs. HOU, vs. BRK, @ ORL) and Washington goes 0-4 on their road trip, I believe we would be even with them in the standings with them coming to Charlotte for both teams next game.

I forgot to mention... Atlanta plays New Orleans on Friday. If they beat New Orleans they will jump us in the standings.

They also have two games in hand on us.

I will say this - to me, it's not the seed but the opponent IMO.  Since I don't think a 4th or higher is realistic at this point to get a home-court advantage in the series, I wouldn't mind the eighth spot as long as we get Indiana in the first round and Miami doesn't leapfrog them.

 

I feel that against the Pacers or Raptors we would be okay, but Miami would sweep us.  The Bulls would give us fits as well, so I will go with either the eight or six spot assuming the top four stay as is.  I feel that would give us the best chance to win a playoff game, perhaps series, under the Bobcats name before it is retired.

    • This is why mock drafts are stupid (and why the serious analysts like Mayock only do them to appease viewers) because it's almost impossible to guess what each GM is going to do and to pick out all the trades. 

      How a rational human being should judge these analysts is were they right about the studs and the duds three years from now. This is why I am indifferent about Christian. I didn't waste my time watching hours of tape, but I trust that DG did. If he's Christian ends up being the player we want him to be, then that's success. If mayock and others saw him having success in the next level then that's success. If analysts don't think Trubisky will have success and he does, then that's failure on part of the analysts.
    • Kareem Hunt from Toledo runs in a similar manner to Cook and will be available in the 3rd and maybe 4th. If they value someone higher than Cook, it's possible they pass and take a back later.
