Only 2.5 games from the 4th seed with still a lot of basketball left. I think we can make it. Sadly, it is becoming clear that LP lost the locker room. No reason to keep a coach when that happens. Hopefully he can find a good assistant situation for a few years and learn from this experience. He is still a good player development coach IMO.

Shoot, I would take being the 8 seed. Just want to make the playoffs no matter how it happens lol. If we hadn't choked so many games late, we could be closer to the 4 seed.

Will Bogi start:

Schlenk did say he wasn’t sure if Bogdanovic will be the team’s starting shooting guard when he’s off his minutes restriction, as it hasn’t been a topic of conversation with McMillan yet. Kevin Huerter has started in place of Bogdanovic in the meantime.

on Dunn's injury:

 

“He’s progressing well,” Schlenk said. “When we signed him last year, we knew, coming off of the knee injury, once we got here and started rehabbing the knee, what they found was the reason for what caused the knee injury, (which) was the calcium in the ankle. And so, he had a decision. We met with (him) and his agent, and we could continue to go down the path of just rehabbing the knee and getting back out there, but the root of the problem was going to be calcium and there were just like little pebbles that were in his tendon, crazy little thing. … He made the decision, and we fully supported him to get that fixed knowing that it would put us in a situation where he would miss the first half of the season and we’d get him back later on this month. So we’re always going to support the players when it comes to doing the right thing for them, medically.”

Agreed and I think since before the season started there was talk of making the playoffs made it very important that they needed to make this change.  Should be really fun watching this team now!

Good to hear!  Can’t wait to get him playing especially with his defense.

Had we won half these games we'd be in the four slot right now. Win all of them and we're in first place in the East. These games were lost by six points or less. We had a fourth quarter lead in all but the 2/10 @DAL game. Oh boy:

  • 12/30 - @BKN - lost 145-141
  • 1/2 - CLE - lost 96-91
  • 1/4 - NYK - lost 113-108
  • 1/16 - @POR - lost 112-106
  • 1/27 - BKN - lost 132-128 OT
  • 2/3 - DAL - lost 122-116
  • 2/10 - @DAL - lost 118-117
  • 2/23 - @CLE - lost 112-111

Finished the first half with back to back road wins though and are only one game from the eighth spot. We're 4-1 under the new HC, playing better defense and fourth quarter ball. Should get Hunter, Cam and Dunn back with at least five weeks left in the regular season. If we stay healthy, we can get hot, make the playoffs and shock a few teams.
