I see the light

The Knicks are currently 22-17, which is a great result so far. Most of us would have been ecstatic to hear a guarantee that this would be their record come this time. We've had a recent string of some really tough games, but the rest of the schedule looks a lot lighter. It goes like this:

Sorry for the formatting...but out of these next 43 games, 25 of them are against teams under .500.

That sounds good, but lets examine how the Knicks' previous games played out...

Out of 39 games so far, 21 were against teams under .500.

 

The percentage of under .500 teams were 53.8% for the first games, and 58.3% for the next 43.

By doing simple math, the Knicks have a schedule that is 1.08 times better than what it has been so far.

We should then do slightly better percentage-wise than previously.

Doing the math for this yields: winning % from 1st 39 x 1.08 = winning % for next 43

Basically...we can expect to win 61% of our next games, which equates to 26 wins added to our 22 currently:

48-34 > probably good for 5th in the East, possibly 4th.

 

side: Obviously just basing our records on performance against under .500 teams isn't the greatest analysis, but I think its not too bad.
