The Celtics will finish this month with a .500 record

The Celtics, after probably losing today to drop to 4-8, are going to go on a 6-2 run to close out the month. 

What inside information did I get to make such a bold proclamation after such a crappy start?  

I, ummm, looked at the schedule. Let's take a look ahead together, shall we? 

 Mon 16  vs Oklahoma City   8:00pm      
 Wed 18  vs Toronto   7:30pm  CSNHD    
 Fri 20  vs Phoenix   7:30pm  CSNHD    
 Sun 22  @ Washington    1:00pm  CSNHD    
 Mon 23  vs Orlando   7:30pm  CSNHD    
 Thu 26  @ Orlando    8:00pm  CSNHD    
 Fri 27  vs Indiana   7:30pm  CSNHD    
 Sun 29  vs Cleveland   6:00pm  CSNHD    
 Tue 31  @ Cleveland    7:00pm  CSNHD    

The losses on the schedule are OKC, Indiana, and one of the Orlando games.  Wins over Toronto, Phoenix, Washington, Orlando and Cleveland twice will close out the month with 10 wins and 10 losses.  

Just based on the Celtics current play, that's a reasonable outcome and it keeps them within striking distance heading into February.  It gives them a month to get into the shape they say the need to get into, and it gives them time to get on the same page offensively.  Then we can get into February and see if these Celtics will just look like this all season, or whether they're going to improve and show flashes of what we think, and they say, they can be. 

And let's face it… after the way they've looked, wouldn't you take a .500 record by the end of the month?  I would too.  And if it doesn't happen, I'm giving everyone their money back.

    Love the optimism don’t think they will lose to Indiana again and they are 4-4 with Paul pierce in the line IP already. I got then winning tonight with rondo stepping up against westbrook

    Looks more like they’ll finish that pictured stretch at. 500 rather than get to. 500.
    Btw, check out this article on Perkins. Celtics could have paid him less than the propaganda claimed, he’s in better shape than anyone but Rondo, and Doc fawns over him. http://on.si.com/zLJ1C8

    Hope you didn`t spend too much on that crystal ball!
    Splt with Orlando? Sweep Cleveland?
    I have my doubts.
