    Here is the schedule for February six road games with most of them against teams that are in playoff position. Six games on the road three at home. Not looking good based on our road record. Good news is only one back to back against OKC. I think if we salvage 3-6 in this month we will be about average. Anything better than this is a bonus.

    God damn. That trip at the end of February. The team will be gone 15 days!
    We had a 13 day trip once back during the Bassy days. This will be the longest I can ever remember.

    Looks like the schedule. If we beat Golden State and OKC it means we can beat them in the playoffs.

    I'm confused, that happens a lot I know. Why will you ge gone 15 days? Golden State is played here. 21 to 27 is only 6. Does the trip continue into March?

    3-6 is not average. At least 4-5, but I expect 5-4.

    Maybe he meant above average overall record?

    I think we’ll do around 6-3. We’ve been decent on the road lately, winning close games at GS, Sacramento, and Utah.

    I think he's saying it's the average record this team would achieve facing that schedule if they played it out a large number of times.

    I read that as better than the average team would do with that kind of schedule. Language is fun.

    The team gets back after the 5th. Toronto, Charlotte and Memphis on the road to start March.

    Comparing home and road performances to date, we should by all rights only be favored in the first two games and the Cleveland game. I think 3-6 is actually an accurate baseline. Wins in Dallas or Brooklyn should be considered upsets.

    We should be favored to win in both. Much better than Dallas so far and Brooklyn will be without Dinwiddie.

    Dallas is so much better at home it's ridiculous. Their home record is basically on par with ours. If they were capable of winning on the road, they'd be right in the middle of the playoff chase. We're an underdog there.

    I had forgotten about Dinwiddie's injury. That said, they're no pushovers, they still have Russell and Napier at point, and we'll be their first game after the all-star break. That's still going to be a very tough game.

    Point is that the OP viewing 3-6 as a baseline for us over that 9-game spread is not unreasonable or indefensible, even if you see it differently.

    We should win one of those two games.
