Our Magic number: Readjusted.

AKA "The combination of wins/losses for the Bulls/Celtics in order for us to clinch the EC" has been stated to be nine.

That's not the number I arrive at when I look at the standings.

More after the jump. (Cue jump)

Welcome to the other side of the fanpost.

 

As I was saying, 9 is not the "Magic number" that I come to when looking at the standings.

 

The celtics, being our closest competition in the ECF, is the rival against which I calculate the MN:

Their record stands at 50-21. Worst case scenario is they win their 11 remaining games ending up with a record of 61-21 also ending up with the tiebreaker against us. In order for us to still remain in 1st place in the East we would need to beat them in the standings and would have to end up with a 62-20 record. Our current record stands at 52-19 meaning our magic number stands at 10.

Any combination of wins for us or losses for the Celtics that sums up to 10 earns us the HCA.

 

Please inform me of any inaccuracies in this estimation. I am currently quite tipsy...
