Some more numbers...

We have to go 19-9 the rest of the way to finish 42-40. Memphis can only go 14-14 at best the rest of the way which would also put them at 42-40.

Of their final 28 games though, they play 20 games against playoff teams if you count us. I know they have a tough schedule after the all star break but they likely only need to go .500 the rest of the way and they keep beating teams they’re not supposed to. I gotta admit I don’t understand Memphis getting no love. I’ll finally be a firm believer if they lose 3 of these 4 right out the gate.

Carmelo went 1-15. Yeesh. I guess that's how you earn a spot on team USA over Jrue.

They barely over .500 playing a soft schedule up to this point. You think they will continue to play .500 on a hard schedule to finish the year? There’s no way they’re finishing over .500

Anyone worried about Memphis needs to look at remaining schedule strength.

1. MEM
.
.
.
30. NOP

Tankathon Remaining Schedule Strength

And that doesn't even take into consideration that, of MEM's remaining 28 games, 16 of them are on the road and only 12 are at home (we have 14 home remaining and 14 on the road).

Yep this sos data has helped me accept memphis has no shot.
Their two games coming up vs lakers are both the 2nd of back to back.

I wouldn't say no shot, but it would probably be the most impressive thing this season in my book for them to finish over .500 and in the 8 spot with this schedule left.

Lillard hurt, he has a groin.



He's going to have a MRI today. It will be interesting to see how much time he's going to miss. If he's out against us in Portland, then I really, really like our chances in that game.

Dame is a dog. He won't rest unless he's forced to.

If he tries to play through it, he’s basically risking doing more damage to the injury that could keep him out most of the rest of the season. They’d probably be wise to hold him out.

Let's hope it's the 2 week variety

That's what he hoping. He doesn't want to face Jrue again after the asb.

5dimes put out odds for over/unders of team totals

blazers over/under 39 wins with both over and under right at -110

pelicans over/under 38.5 wins with over at -135

grizzlies over/under 38.5 wins with over at -125

(spurs over/under 36.5 wins with under at -130)

so they see us, portland, and memphis all finishing around 39 with the blazers having maybe the slightest of edges right now. a win in our final game against them on friday in portland would be a massive win
