The way they're playing right now, it would be hard to say they wouldn't.

I say no because they havent played that many teams above 500 yet so its gonna start to get harder to win.

They are playing like a team on a mission right now! Its pretty amazing that King James has hardly had to play in the 4th quarter this year! :speechless:

exactly they have played nothing but below 500 teams plus they beat a jazz team without boozer and williams so the verdict is out on how good they are
when the schedule gets a little tougher we will see

They have to win 2 out of every 3 games basically. They'll do it if they stay healthy.

they have to go 40-19 on the rest of the season to pull it off. I like their chances.

Boston nor the Lakers have had hard schedules at all either.

THANK YOU.

You are the fairest person on these forums, and I am glad somebody had the cahones to tell all the NBA "know it alls" on PSD that they need to do some research before bashing the Cavaliers' strength of schedule.

The Celtics and Lakers are beating up on a bunch of nobodies too. In fact Boston has had I think 13 home games and...10 road games.. I think. And their next 5 of 6 are at home. LOL.

it all evens out at the end of the year but bashing teams for SOS is ludicrous.

The Cavs will win 60. It's practically booked. All they have to do is stay healthy.

How do you figure?

ummm because hes averaging under 6 minutes per 4th quarter this year, their ave. margin of victory is over 13 for the season. in the last 10 games he is playin under 32 minutes per game.

Its almost a lock 4 them 2 get 60.

How cool would it be if the Lakers, Celtics, and Cavs got over 70.

Almost impossible but they'll all get in the 60s.


Can't believe the Lakers lost 2 the Kings though.

4 sure boston and lakers is the only thing that can stop them.

I was thinking, would either team do a wally+ for VC deal, VC doesnt really fit with the Nets direction, and if the Cavs got VC they would easily be the best.

I think the strength of schedule thing is overrated. The only things of importance to look at are win margin, and how many more road wins you have than home losses. Next would be defensive efficency
Boston-- +10.4, 8 more wins
Cleveland-- +13.5, 7 more wins
LAL-- +10.6, 6 more wins

Lakers have had the fewest road games of the bunch, and the worst defense of the 3. I think the best teams so far are
Cleveland
Boston
LAL

After that, there is a big, big dropoff. THese are your contenders. When SA, Utah both get healthy, they could stagger somewhere near these 3 possibly

Hawkeye15
12-13-2008, 03:21 PM
so, anyways, all 3 can win 60. And I think they all win barring injuries

i don't think the schedule matters at all. their confidence right now is sky high. They're going to continue to roll on people and when the better opponents come, they'll be ready.

i've seen this far too many times. Why would New Jersey gives the cavs an asset like that when they're gunning for LeBron in 2010? If Cleveland becomes a better team, that hurts the nets. How do people not get that?

I think Cleveland will win around 56 games this year, the schedule gets tougher as the season progresses. They still have not gone on a tough, west coast road trip.

I think its certainly possible.

Possible but no. Down the stretch, they have a tougher schedule, injuries play a big factor and Mike Brown may wanna rest some of the key guys.

I dont think the cavs would do it because VC's contract run past 2010 and hurts their chances of signing 2 max deals. And although he is a good player, i dont think VC would be a good fit with the cavs.

60, yes. 70, no.

Theyll end up with 60-62 wins

12-13-2008, 07:38 PM
they just have to win 2 out of every 3 from here on out, which is a possibility for them

How is Boston not 1st??

Considering the level that they are playing at, and the level teh rest of the nba is playing at, it is possible. But even as a Cavs fan i don't think it will happen, but i think we'll get close. 56-58 wins probably.

As long as LeBron is playing, I can't say no.

they have played a lot of below 500 teams but stilll there a really good basketball team and i say the have a huge shot at winning 60 games.

Theyre 20 and 3 right now
so theyre on pace for 60-9


Cavs 2008-2009 record 61-21

5-4 against teams above .500 So we still have to wait and see.

I see the Cavs winning somewhere around 55-58 games. They COULD make a run at 60 wins, but I don't see it happening for them. Reason being, the East is really improved from how it was in years past, and outside of the Wizards, there wouldn't be another easy win for them inside the conference.
