This is about as easy as it gets. The Christmas game vs Phoenix is our only above .500. Along with the Raptors they are the only team that made the playoffs last season. The Heat are at .500 and could be above the mark by January 5th. Or not.
4 of those teams already fired their coaches.
The back to backs include Kings/T-Wolves a rare home/home game. A week later we're at Grizzlies then home to the Sixers. Nothing crazy like the Hornets/Magic roadies we just went through.
For the second time we take on the Grizzlies twice within a week. Last time we took both games convincingly enough.
Combined these teams winning percentage is .369. Spurs is currently at .600
The Suns game is the only one on National TV. Unless you count NBATV and I don't.
Is too farfetch'd to think we can go 9-1, 8-2 maybe even 10-0. Not really. So far beating up on bad teams has been working out for us. Its getting a win over the decent teams thats killing the Spurs.
