Ending 2012 on a Good Note
I've been taking a look at our schedule and it doesn't seem that bad for us to climb the ladder back up in the East and get to that #2 / #3 position. Here's what I got us at until New Years.
12/12: Nets @ Raptors - W 102-80 (12-9)
12/14: Pistons @ Nets - W 97-78 (13-9)
12/15: Nets @ Bulls - W 92-89 (14-9) [a bit optimistic here but I think it'll be a nail biter]
12/18: Jazz @ Nets - L 96-84 (14-10) [I do think we can play with them, but I feel like it's going to be another one of those Milwaukee or GS games]
12/19: Nets @ Knicks - L 101-92 (14-11) [The crowd will NOT be on our side, not many Nets fans will show up to this game, and that will end up costing us]
12/23: Nets @ Sixers: W 100-92 (15-11) [Brook Lopez should have a monster game with their lack of size up front]
12/25: Celtics @ Nets: W 104-98 (16-11) [Another physical game, but we will destroy them again 3-0 in the series]
12/26: Nets @ Bucks: W 92-86 (17-11) [Payback]
12/28: Bobcats @ Nets: W 100-79 (18-11) [blowout]
12/29: Cavs @ Nets: W 104-94 (19-11) [Would not be surprised if this team showed up and beat us, but I have us taking it]
12/31: Nets @ Spurs L 102-89 (19-12) [Too tough for us]
So, I have us 8-3 in our next 11. How do you guys see us finishing 2012 and what seed?
CC's Prediction: 19-12 --> #3 Seed in the East
