Wizards Schedule Analysis: Let's see what games we should be mad about losing down the stretch.

Coming into the season i said i thought we could get 43-45 wins this season (this was with Okafor), i had revised it to 41-43 games after Gortat move. In order to get there I thought a 27-14 record at home and a 15-26 record away would be the key to about a #7 seed. This when i thought the Knicks and Nets were going to be in the mix. The Wizards are now 7-8, and i'm going to take into consideration the mix of games, the back to backs, extended trips and home stands and try to predict where the 42-44 wins will come from.

We'll go month by month:

@NYK (14-25) @ Orlando (15-25) @ Boston (16-25)



The late months will see the intensity of tanking teams ease up, plus it's heavy with Eastern Conference teams. February and April feature the Wizards making up a 5 game home/away deficit.

To be 7-8 here at this point is just fine. At 44-38, we could be the home team as a 5 seed in the 1st round over the crappy ATL division winner. This is the list of games that can get us there, and if we lose any of those games i deem winnable i'll actually get irritated. I feel i've been realistic.
