East Conference standings last 15 games
« on: February 02, 2013, 02:21:19 AM »
1-Brooklyn 11-4
2-Chicago 10-5
3-Boston 9-6
3-Miami 9-6
3-Indiana 9-6
6-New York 8-7
6-Milwaukee 8-7
6-Detroit 8-7
9-Washington 7-8
10-Atlanta 6-9
10-Cleveland 6-9
10-Philadelphia 6-9
13-Toronto 5-10
14-Charlotte 4-11
15-Oralndo 2-13

I know it'll be tougher going forward without Rondo and Sully but it hasn't been all that bad. For what its worth, the last 15 games coincides around the time of Bradley's return
 
Couple of interesting observations.

* If we continue to win 9 out of every 15 games we'll go 22-14 the rest of the way to finish 45-37. This will probably be good enough to get us out of the 8 seed.

* New York is barely a .500 team in that span and you could take it a bit further. They started the year 18-5 and have been 11-10 since. If they continue to play .500 ball they will finish with a 47-35 record.

* Brooklyn has been rolling and they could end up catching the Knicks

* If Miami is monitoring playoff seedings, the last thing they want to see as the #1 seed is a proud Boston team at #8, and a Derrick Rose led Chicago at #4. Something tells me the Heat would prefer to see Milwaukee at #8 and Brooklyn at #4.

* During that 15 game span, The Cs are limiting teams to 91.6 ppg. Only Indiana and Chicago are better (89.7 ppg) If anything, we have finally gotten back to playing championship caliber defense

* Suddenly that Detroit loss a couple of weeks ago doesn't look so bad. The Pistons are 8-7 in their last 15 games.

Yeah, if only we could erase all of the games before this 15 game span then maybe this thread would mean something.  ;)

I don't consider anything less than a 20 game sample to be big enough to draw conclusions.

Thanks for the research and insight. Tp!

I think if we can continue to play like this, and get the most out of our teams talent, we could possibly still win the Atlantic.

Wow @ negative attitude towards the opening poster. What the heck is wrong with you people?

I found the info pretty interesting. Yes, you take it with a grain of salt. Someone, however, put some time into getting some interesting statistics, so the least you can do is show a little appreciation.

That said, I like where Boston is going, but basketball is a game of runs, through-and-through, so we might go on a bad stretch sooner or later again. I hope not, but it's possible. At the very least though, it shows that we're *capable* of runs again, and the defensive stats are the ones that stood out to me as the most telling ones.

Cheers for posting these.

A few thoughts:

*Brooklyn has improved. They are yet to match up with Miami by any means and they struggle against them, but they are playing better overall.

*Chicago is silently having another great season with Rose.

*Detroit has steadied the ship considerably. Washington, while not as strong as Detroit, made a move forward.

*Toronto, after trading for Gay, and getting Bargnani back from injury (he can't play any worse than he did pre-injury) will not be as easy to get past.

*Philadelphia amongst the playoff contenders and Orlando amongst the bottom ranked teams are struggling (regardless of the record, though, their record also reflected their issues perfectly in that span).

Without Rondo, it won't be easy to make gigantic leaps, but I'm more concerned about the Captain here. He is needed to carry even more of a load now, as not only the go-to scorer, but also the facilitator, so, I hope he doesn't get burned down through regular season.

I think a lot of New York's struggles came about because of the loss of Raymond Felton. Their offense has looked really poor without his dribble penetration and drive and kick game. Very stagnant. Shooters not getting as many quality looks as they did earlier in the season.

With Felton coming back now, I think New York will slowly ramp up as he gets into shape and they rebuild chemistry and will finish the season strongly.

I know the Clipper are w/o CP3 but it scared me how easy the Raptors dismantled them. Gay makes them dangeorous and even more athletic.

Plus you'd think integrating Amare and Shumpert should help as well.

I'm not trying to have a negative attitude, I just don't think it means much to look at the record for the conference over the last 15 games.

Might as well ask how we're looking over three last 3?

I'm just taking it game by game.

Edit: Oh, but TPs for the work from the op and the one doing the analyses.

  I agree, but I'd rather have a streaky team than a constantly middle of the pack team, there's always a chance you'll get hot at around the same time.
