We beat an Atlanta team that was very short handed last night on the road; and lost to a deeply determined Toronto team at home.
We start off the post All Star break at 500. The standings are really bunched up now - from 4th to 8th seed. The team will have to focus on performing at a higher level than 500 ball here on out to qualify for the playoffs, and even try to garner home court advantage.There are 28 games left to play this season, basically a two month sprint now to qualify for the playoffs.
Today is the trade dead line day in the NBA - many teams are trying to improve, as are we the difficulties are in trying to align salaries in a move; and threading the needle on what we need short term to help vs what our plans are mid and long term in terms of salary cap management.
