We're Smooth Sailing But Thunderstorms Are On The Horizon

After 5 games we're looking like a pretty solid team at 3-2. We could easily be 4-1 right now but let's not dwell on what could have happened, let's talk about was has happened and what will most likely happen in the future. 5 games in we've looked impressive with each outing and with a team FULL of new faces it's pretty hard to tell that they've only been acquainted for a tiny handful of months. Every single game we've played we've been in it, we were never blown out and for opposing teams we were the bunch that just wouldn't go away. Having Portland, Boston and Chicago back to back to back was no cake walk. All Playoff bound teams who weren't going to lay down for the up and coming Knicks. We managed to dismantle Chicago on their home court on national television in one of the best shooting performances in recent memory, the Knicks are back. Our upcoming schedule isn't a very scary one. The remainder of November shouldn't cause concern or any headaches, December on the other hand... Eh, that's a bit different. Take a look.

Look at all of that drool! Look at all of the tears! We have some pretty easy competition in for the remainder of this month. Golden State, Houston and Milwaukee are three teams we shouldn't take lightly. Houston and Milwaukee are struggling but shouldn't be taken lightly and Golden State has been pretty much delivering fatalities. Denver and Atlanta haven't gotten better from last year but they were playoff teams, playoff teams that we beat last year. In fact, Atlanta never beat us last year, we seem to have their number and with a vastly improved team they should have even more problems with us now than they did in the past. The fact is, there's a buttload of games this month that we SHOULD win. Not just could but should. 

This is where things get a bit messy.

December starts off easy enough, got a hot New Orleans team but then its 4 straight very winnable games. After that the thunderstorms start rolling in. Those are some pretty tough games. Our heart is going to be racing on nearly all of those match ups. They'll be close, they'll be frustrating and they'll be hell. The worst part is that the beginning of January is just as tough as well but we'll save that for another story. We have to take care of Philadelphia tomorrow evening and win as many as these November games as possible because the road is about to get rocky and fast.
