If we can beat Miami, the skys the limit. we might be able to break LAC's winning streak record this year.

Honestly why not?? That team makeup is not anything incredible other than Paul , Griffin and a bunch of nice supporting casts.

We actually have more talent in our line. It could be a fun ride

I think it ends Friday against Chicago.

Since KG came here, we've always had trouble with the Bulls.

If not then, then it will probably be against either Miami or the Clippers when they come to Boston.

If the past is any indicator, it'll be against the team you don't expect.  So like the Pistons or the Cavs or something like that.

But realistically I think it's probably more likely against the Knicks or the rematch with the Hawks in Atlanta.

I don't care so much if the streak ends, though.  I'd really like to see the team win 10 or more of their next 14-15 games, though.  That could really put them in good position to climb the ranks.

I think Chicago is the main threat to Boston three games from now.

If they get past Chicago, then they have two easy games followed up by a three game run against New York, Atlanta and Miami. Figure at least one of those games goes against them. So if they get past the Bulls, then somewhere in that stretch. A 10 game winning streak or more.

Sounds about right. we really need to run the table on this homestand which would put us a 8 straight. then after that take it one game at a time and go as far as we can to try extending it. 10 straight would be very nice.

the good thing is, you look at the east and we really have a chance to move up the standings here.

Teams like Atlanta and the Knicks who started out hot seem to be fading abit. even Miami and Chicago are 5-5 in their last 10 games

Most likely at 7. I expect a possible loss to Chicago. I see the changes of getting the 8th win about 50%.

I just want them to beat the Bobcats on Monday.  After that, I'll worry about the next game.

IDK about the bulls...sure they beat us last time. But they dont really have much offensive firepower.

If we continue to play defense like we have been I can see us limiting them.

I was thinking about this run since Bradley got back.

We're 5-1 in the 6 games he's been back (Memphis, Indiana, Atlanta, New York, Phoenix, Houston).  Even in the loss we've played very well.

But I don't think you can really say for sure that a team has changed its stripes until you're working with at least a 20 game sample size.  Then you can point at that stretch and say you have a definitive trend.

So I'm looking for the team to do really well in the next 14 games or so.  If we reach that point with 28-30 wins, I'll feel good about this team's ability to climb up the standings moving forward.
