Looking ahead to the next dozen games

I haven't contributed anything in a long while but I was just poring over the next few weeks for the Blazers and thought I'd share a few observations. 

First, the schedule: 

2/20 Atlanta

2/22 Clippers

2/24 @ Houston

2/25 @ San Antonio - 2nd night of Back to Back games

2/27 @ Minnesota

3/1 San Antonio again

3/4 Indiana

3/5 @ Denver - 2nd night of Back to Back games

3/7 Minnesota

3/9 Lakers

3/11 Dallas

3/13 New Jersey

 

Things that stand out to me: 

1)  Out of the 12 games, 8 are at home. I bet we'll win 6 of those games.

2)  Out of the four road games, three are against teams that are contending for playoff spots.  I bet we still get 2 of those games. 

3)  I bet we'll lose the two back to back 2nd night games (against the Spurs and the Nuggets) but since those are teams that often beat us in their buildings anyway, I can live with it.  In other words, it's kind of a favorable schedule, in a way. 

Summary

I believe we will win 8-9 of these 12 games.  One the other hand, even if we only win 6 of the 12 (unlikely) we will still be sitting at 13 games over .500, with 17 games left.

 

All in all, I like the way things look.  Any other insights?
