Race to the Four Seed

New, comments

I'm in my morning class doing scholarly things -- obviously. Anyway, I took a quick break to look at the Sixers remaining schedule, and I wandered over to the Hawks schedule and something caught my eye. First look at this.

4.  x-Atlanta 16.5 
5.  Miami 20.0 
6.  Philadelphia 20.5 
Forgot the five seed! Let's set our sights on the fourth seed. And yes, you can blame me if I jinx it, but look at the Hawks next five games.

BOS

LAL

@PHI

@BOS

ORL

And the Sixers next five games...

CHA

@DET

ATL

MIL

DET

With 12 games remaining, a four game deficit seems difficult to make up, but look at the upcoming five-game stretches for each team and tell me it isn't possible. You can't!

Let the race to the four seed begin.
