while we have all been discussing edging out Minny for #8, the Clippers, who have been playing better of late, are now also ahead of the ws for the last seed. It is going to take the ws going 25-15 in the second half to make the playoffs.

This is exactly the reason I have been saying the last few days that this team cannot afford to lose more games and continue this losing slide. I have a feeling .500 is not going to get us in the playoffs. That being said, the next two games at home are huge against the Nets and Bobcats. Must wins in my eyes. The Warriors must get back to winning ways really soon or the playoffs will be a distant memory as I said before.

The Warriors cannot expect the Clippers to mire in mediocrity the rest of the season. With the talent that team has they have the ability to go on a nice winning streak and really open up the gap on that 8th spot. The Warriors must respond with some wins this week.

I agree, Chi-Tom. The ws next 10 games are ALL winnable. They don't play a truly quality team until the Nuggets on 2/12, followed by home games against the knicks and grizzlies, so it is not inconceivable for them to win 12 of those 13. That will not happen, esp. since there is so much road, but if the ws are not 10-3 or 9-4 after the grizzlies game, they are not a playoff team...if they go 9-4, they are 28-27 at the break. If you look at the schedule, there is no excuse for a playoff team to do anything less:

First I want to see what happens with Mags. He has already said that he doesn't want to be a Clipper besides the trade deadline... it will be interesting to see what they can get in a trade.

Still think the last playoff berth will be around 43 wins... that's almost the same record Colt's talking about.

Yeah, but most of them are on the road... and we all know how bad we are on the road.

Still, I think we can have a 7-3 record.

This is the schedule (and my picks for the games):

Nets - W
Bobcats - W
@ Cavs - L
@ Hawks - W
@ Sixers - W
@ Bobcats - W
@ Pacers - W
@ T-Wolves - L
Bulls - L
Hawks - W

I'm pretty much with you on the record, here is my version...
Nets - W
Bobcats - W
@ Cavs - W (payback time)
@ Hawks - W
@ Sixers - W
@ Bobcats - L
@ Pacers - W (Payback time 2)
@ T-Wolves - L (they may also steal this one, Minny is in disarray)
Bulls - L (maybe)
Hawks - W

anywhere from 5-5 to 9-1 (that's after I freebased :wink: )

The Warriors have 12 games before the All-Star break. Here is how I see them playing it out:

Nets - W
Bobcats - W
@ Cavs - L
@ Hawks - W
@ Sixers - W
@ Bobcats - W
@ Pacers - L
@ T-Wolves - L
Bulls - W
Atlanta - W
@Denver - L
New York - W

I have them at 8-4 over the next twelve which would even their record up at 27-27 at the break. This is not a bad record and it definitely puts the Warriors in a position to make a move after the break to get that 8th spot.

Like the Warriors, the Clippers have an East Coast trip before the break. Here is a rundown of their games before the All-Star Break:

New Jersey - W
Minnesota - W
@ Seattle - L
Chicago - W
@ Boston - W
@ Toronto - L
@ New York - W
@ Cleveland - L
@ Philadelphia - W
@ Indiana - L
@ Detroit - L
Atlanta - W

Thus, I have them going 7-5 before the break which would put them at 27-26 before the break, 1/2 game ahead of the Warriors.

That above is my guess of what will happen. However, with the Warriors, they are hard to predict. I am hoping for a strong East Coast trip against a few minnows of that lowly conference, but the Warriors have struggled to win on the road and will need to step it up over the next three weeks to reach .500 before the break. If they do make it to .500, anything is possible.
