Playoff Magic Numbers, as of Thurs Mar 24

Hello all, just a brief update for where the Knicks stand right now as they backslide into the playoffs. If there's interest I'll keep this updated, and as teams become out of reach, I'll remove them.

I think this is an interesting look. For example, it shows that catching Philly and catching Atlanta will be about the same level of difficulty, and since Atlanta is slipping lately, it might even be easier.

Not sure if the jump is relevant if this post isn't on the front page, but I suppose you'll have to humor me and take it anyway:

Atlanta (5)
3-7 last 10
40-32
10 games remaining
Knicks Magic Number: 15
Knicks hold tie-breaker

Philly (6)
6-4 last 10
37-34
11 games remaining
Knicks Magic Number: 14
Philly holds tie-breaker

Knicks (7)
3-7 last 10
35-36
11 games remaining

Indiana (8)
5-5 last 10
32-40
12 games remaining
Knicks Magic Number: 10
Indiana holds tie-breaker

Milwaukee (9)
5-5 last 10
28-42
12 games remaining
Knicks Magic Number: 6
Milwaukee holds tie-breaker

 

The Magic Number is the sum of wins for the Knicks combined with losses from the other team in order to have the Knicks end up on top.
