When I first previewed the schedule for February, I anticipate a tough month. I'm sure you all did. As I review the results of the month, the only two losses that I can say were completely unexpected were the Indiana and Sacramento losses -- maybe the Seattle loss, but given that it was a home/home series and we got the first win at our home, it wasn't too surprising to see a letdown by our team and a good night by the home sonics.
The point is, February RESULTS were about what the schedule dictated. Perhaps the manner in which we played could have been better, but in the end, I'd say the schedule played itself out as expected.
Based on that theory, we are now entering a new month altogether, and I see a MUCH MORE FAVORABLE schedule ahead.
Here's my forecast -- you heard it here FIRST!
Sun, Mar 2 @ Golden State - WIN
Tue, Mar 4 Phoenix - LOSS
Fri, Mar 7 @ Milwaukee - WIN
Sat, Mar 8 @ NY Knicks - WIN
Mon, Mar 10 @ Cleveland - LOSS
Tue, Mar 11 @ Minnesota - WIN
Thu, Mar 13 @ Sacramento - WIN
Sat, Mar 15 Minnesota - WIN
Tue, Mar 18 Phoenix - WIN
Fri, Mar 21 LA Clippers - WIN
Sat, Mar 22 @ LA Clippers - LOSS
Mon, Mar 24 @ Seattle - WIN
Tue, Mar 25 Washington - WIN
Thu, Mar 27 @ Golden State - LOSS
Sat, Mar 29 Charlotte - WIN
That's it. I anticipate an 11-4 month of March!
