14 - 12

Finish 44 - 38

Maybe we can pull off another win or two if we catch a team on a back to back.  So 16-10 max.  But then again, we can also still fall apart.

Dyce's answer is close enough. 43 wins was enough for the 7th seed last season.

Man, that is a tough schedule. With so many teams grouped together it looks like 2 teams will probably be left out with 43-44 wins. We'd have to get 15 wins to probably be safe, which is doable but we'd have to stay healthy. 20 wins against that schedule is pretty crazy I can't see that.

Wow, 5 Back to backs (2 of which are consecutively away. The top 5 teams in the league at this point (by record) are HOU, GSW, TOR, CLE, SA. We play a top 5 team six times in the season. We are playing seven games against NOLA, POR, DEN, and UTAH. And I count 7 "easy" games against lower ranking teams (of those 7, two are b2b+away games, one is b2b+home).

Needless to say it will be a tough road ahead. I don't want to make any projections without spending more time looking at the schedule more closely. And after a brief look at the schedules for NOLA, POR, DEN, and Utah... it seems we are going to have to play near flawlessly. NOLA (imo) is more likely to be bumped. POR is too unpredictable.

Looking to me like we will end the season with around 45-46 wins (so I am hoping 46-36 record). That will be hard to accomplish but I think it's in the realm of doable.
