The Hawks seem to always play us tough and it would make a lot of sense for there to be an emotional let-down after beating the Warriors.

But who knows?  At this point I have no idea what to expect from this team.

We could have a letdown against Atlanta or anyone, but look next week to that Indy/Orlando/Detroit 3 games in 4 days stretch, and that's a pretty good candidate to end it. 2nd night of a back to back on the road in Indy would be my vote. The 2nd night of a back to back game on the road is usually a killer.

I know there's gonna be a game where the other team has a hot shooting night while we go cold, but...all those teams are beatable. It's not impossible we run the table the rest of the calendar year.

I was thinking of something between 35 - 80.
46, 47-ish but there is no such option in the poll.
Still no prefered option ::)

The Heat will play us tough I bet, but I think there's a good chance this streak stays alive after this week.

But agree with @nickagneta, DET could give us a helluva fight and could be where the streak ends (@19 games).

And LOL at this poll with 57% (me included) saying it would end at 13 vs. Warriors  :laugh:

LOL I remember last year, when down 2-0 to CLE in ECF, I made a poll saying "Do You Believe", and about 85% said "Nope. CLE will sweep", especially with IT now out for the rest of the season.

Then they won Game 3. So funny.  :laugh:

We should handle Dallas, Miami, and Orlando easily enough, but I can see both the Pacers and Pistons games being tough. I could see the Pacers beating us in Indy on the second night of a back to back, even if theoretically we should be favored.

It will probably come on some night where we shoot like 30% from the feild and lose 88-84 to some very average team. Just don't want it to be against the sixers. I find those guys insufferable.

Agree. Losing to someone like the Pacers would be perfectly fine
