If the C's win 20 games the rest of the season I will eat my computer.


The above quote is from the "bash Rondo" thread, in which an unnamed poster made a pledge to dine on his desktop forum viewing device if the Celtics manage to go 20-18 the rest of the way.  The significance of that milestone, I imagine, is that 20 more wins would get them to 41 wins, meaning they'd finish with exactly a .500 record.

Whether or not the Celtics would make the playoffs even if they are not at or above .500 is another discussion; my feeling is it's possible they might still get in due to the pathetic state of the Eastern Conference, but who knows. He would have to fill a bowl with some premium dip and pig out on some microchips either way!



Here's the remaining schedule for the Celtics:

vs. Kings
vs. Orlando
vs. Los Angeles (Clippers)
@ Toronto
vs Los Angeles (Lakers)
vs Denver
@ Charlotte
vs Chicago
@ Denver
@ Los Angeles
@ Phoenix
@ Portland
@ Utah
vs Golden State
@ Philadelphia
@ Indiana
vs Atlanta
@ OKC
@ Charlotte
vs Toronto
vs Charlotte
vs Miami
@ New Orleans
@ Dallas
@ Memphis
vs NY
@ Cleveland
vs Atlanta
@ NY
@ Minnesota
vs Detroit
vs Cleveland
vs Washington
vs Brooklyn
@ Miami
@ Orlando
vs Indiana
@ Toronto


Things to keep in mind:

1. 20 of the remaining 38 games are on the road versus 18 at home.  The Celtics have been pretty bad on the road this season (7-14 versus 14-9 at home).

2. 20 of the remaining 38 games are against teams who currently have worse records than the Celtics currently have.

3. The Celtics face the Heat twice, the Knicks twice, and the Lakers twice.  But they face the Bobcats three times and the Raptors three times.


So what do you think?  Will he have to eat his computer?  If so, how should he go about doing it?

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
I sure hope he does.

Ahh and I had already made the other one that avoided any mention of said poster!  Well, in any case.  Let's discuss.

I still say the C's don't win 20 more or make the playoffs. Remember, Philly gets Andrew Bynum back for the stretch run.

Also, many TPs to IP for opening this as the subject is a very good one. Can the C's make the playoffs and/or win 20 more games. I say no.

And as an aside, microchips have never hurt my digestive system before.

Here;s the home games:

vs. Kings
vs. Orlando
vs. Los Angeles (Clippers)
vs Los Angeles (Lakers)
vs Denver
vs Chicago
vs Golden State
vs Atlanta
vs Toronto
vs Charlotte
vs Miami
vs NY
vs Atlanta
vs Detroit
vs Cleveland
vs Washington
vs Brooklyn
vs Indiana

18 home games. What is there 3-4 guaranteed wins. Maybe 3-5 they might wins. There looks to be a guaranteed 8-10 losses there.

And on the road this team could lose to anyone, with or without Rondo. Philly getting Bynum back or Detroit making a move to improve their young core with a productive vet that can lead stands a better chance at making the playoffs than a struggling, aging Boston team losing their top 20 player in the NBA in Rondo.

I believe the celtics will be fine in the regular season without rondo. It won't be till they reach the playoffs and pierce is bricking everything in sight with no star to step up and take over that reality will set in.

Yes, it looks like it could be a close call though.

That's my thought, and of course if pierce is moved it all changes.

I think we'll be strong over the next 10, but will fade down the stretch.
