With 55 days to go in the season
Since starting the season 6-3 they are 42-5 since practically winning at a 90% clip.
Things will get more challenging the next dozen games or so having road games at Toronto, at Miami, at LAL, at Denver and home games against Miami and Boston. The games at Toronto and at Miami and at Denver are especially difficult given second night of back to back. They haven’t played a decent team on the road in a back to back so we shall see but that’s usually a recipe for an L.
Then there’s the 5 game stretch in early April with games at Dallas, two against Toronto, at Boston and at Philly. That’s brutal.
By my guess I see them going 19-7 or 18-8 down the stretch. To get to 70 they’d have to go 22-4 and I don’t see that happening.
The good news is Toronto has a tough stretch coming up as well with a west coast road trip and are playing 14 of their final 25 on the road.
