    It surprises me that people are still talking about playoffs with a 34.7% winning percentage...heading for 28 wins.

    With them being only 4 games out of the final spot and 33 games left, the optimism in all of us believes/hopes that they can make a run at it, but they need cooperation from Philly, Charlotte, Indiana and Milwaukee to run into a rough patch and take a hard extended fall like the Wizards and the Cavs...

    In fact if the Pistons had won their last 4 games instead of losing them, they would be in 8th spot now, a half game ahead of Charlotte

    At 20-36, the Pistons are on current pace for a 29-53 season. Many people around here are still talking playoffs....

    I stand by my prediction of 33 wins.

    We're bound for a an easy win or two at the end of the season when we're playing against a team that has their playoff spot locked in.

    Here's my prediction for the rest of the season:

    FEBRUARY
    2/16 Indiana
    2/22 Houston
    2/23 @Indiana
    2/25 @Philadelphia
    2/26 Utah

    We're not beating Utah. We'll probably split the Indiana games. We may pull of a surprise either against Philly or Houston.

    February prediction: 2-3
    Record going into March: 22-39

    MARCH
    3/1 @Milwaukee
    3/2 Minnesota
    3/6 Washington
    3/9 @San Antonio
    3/11 @Oklahoma City
    3/12 @Denver
    3/16 Toronto
    3/18 New York
    3/20 @Atlanta
    3/23 Miami
    3/25 @Cleveland
    3/26 Indiana
    3/30 @Indiana

    Minnesota, Toronto, Cleveland and Washington are all in tank mode. Since they're much better at tanking than us, we'll get those four games. We'll lose in Milwaukee and we'll go 0-3 on that brutal road trip to start the month. New York, Atlanta and Miami are all games we'll lose. We'll either split the Indiana games or lose both of those but pull of a miracle win against the other playoff teams.

    March prediction: 5-8
    Record going into April: 27-47

    APRIL
    4/1 Chicago
    4/3 @Boston
    4/5 @Washington
    4/6 New Jersey
    4/8 Milwaukee
    4/10 @Charlotte
    4/11 Cleveland
    4/13 @Philadelphia

    Boston, Chicago, Milwaukee, Charlotte and Philly will all be jockeying for playoff spots. That's 5 losses. Washington and New Jersey are lottery experts and Cleveland just sucks so bad. However, we always seem to suck against New Jersey, so we'll probably get 2 out of those 3. But, crazy things happen at the end of the season, so let's assume we'll pick up one of the games against the playoff teams.

    April prediction: 3-5
    Final record: 30-52

    Adjusting for the divine interference that will reward me for being a good boy, the Pistons will win 3 more and finish with a 33-49 record.

    Pistons are 26-49 right now with 7 games left:
    @ Boston
    @ Washington
    vs New Jersey
    vs Milwaukee
    @ Charlotte
    vs Cleveland
    @ Philly

    Only two groups (the 25-29 club and the 30-34 club) are left in the running for predicting correctly.

    And to think I failed in my willing the Pistons to 35 wins.
    I'm such a loser.
    Maybe JJ was still healthy when I voted.

    Jerekbo was injured on October 5. You voted on October 12. Nice try, though. :pound:

    I predict 3.5 wins from here out, which gives the strange victory to the 25-29 club.

    I hope they are right since we have nothing to play for except for a draft pick.

    This is the only remaining drama to the season.

    27 and 51 with 4 games to go.

    0-4, 1-3, 2-2 means that the 25-29 club clinches.

    3-1, or 4-0 means that the 30-34 club sneaks in for the W.

    We're playing a pretty bad set of teams to finish the year, so 3-1 isn't impossible:
    1) Bucks- .410 (32-46)
    2) Bobcats- .410 (32-46)
    3) Cavaliers- .218 (17-61)
    4) 76ers- .506 (40-39)

    It's April Madness!

    TaS, just because you have 30-34 doesn't mean the Taynking won't continue.
    Give it up.

    Rodney won't let them go out like that! He's playing for his next contract now.

    I understand the continual brow beating of Stuckey but to be honest; he's playing the same way he has all year and just improving as we had hoped for.

    Rodney has played [STRIKE]like a reserve[/STRIKE] very pedestrian on a poor team. His choice to be insubordinate this season can only help his ability to get that off season contract he's been looking for. As long as he's signing for no more than 8 million for 3 years... anywhere...
