    Need the schedule to verify my earlier prediction and make any necessary changes that I see fit.

    Bumping this thread...

    What are you guys thinking now with things clicking? Any revisions to total number of wins?

    I went with 36-45 wins. Would be extremely happy with 36...

    I also voted for 36-45 and I said 39 wins. Seems a little optimstic but still a real possibility.

    Our record is currently 19-30 with 33 games remaining.

    If we win half of those game, say 17 that puts us at 36. Our schedule should be easier in the 2nd half of the year. As long as we stay healthy and keep this team together I think its very doable.

    I said and voted 30-35 wins early in this thread before the season started and I'm sticking with it. I believe we will get there.

    Mixed bag. At least we end the season on a 5 game home stand (8 of the last 9 at home too).

    if i'm being optimistic, i think we can get 9 or 10 of those. fewer is certainly possible, though. it's hard to get a read on the team right now, as they were dreadful post-trade/pre-asb, and they've just played three very bad teams who are trying to lose basketball games.

    the next four games will be very telling, imo. tough road games with miami and SA, followed by portland (who never loses to us) and orlando (easy look-over game). split those, and i'll believe we can finish out winning half of our games overall.

    I'll be happy if we finish with 34 wins so 8 wins out of 22 which looks doable.

    Boy, I couldn't be happier to be WRONG about this team!

    We're already at 26 wins with 22 games left...I think we easily get 35 wins at the very least. There's a possibility we can hit .500 as our schedule really lightens up towards the end with a ton of home games (and we've been really good at home lately).

    Really loving how this team turned out even with a few frustrating losses here and there and then the trade that kinda messed up our momentum going into the break...we have recovered nicely and we're in for a nice end to the season.

    If we didn' have that damn 9 game losing streak. If Walton actually played randle from the start, if we didn' have that 3 game losing streak recently that almost sealed off playoff hopes, this team would be in the middle of pack in the playoffs.

    26 wins last year, 34 so far this year, through injury, prison time, a mid season trade shake up, I will take it as a step forward. 35+ is still attainable, 35 is where I voted if we had injuries, 40 if we stayed healthy and meshed well. So 35 would be fine, and with what we’ve had to work with, a literal G-League bench for multiple games, it’s not a failure of a season, and the big name free agents IMO should definitely be intrigued to play with Kuz, Zo, BI, Hart, and hopefully Randle.
