    I say it could happen. You have to beat the Warriors twice though.

    End the season on a 16-1 streak... YES

    I don't think we have enough season left, but I think we'll get close. 57 wins are more likely, in my opinion. That would give us a damn fine record. Love your optimism, though!

    Most likely the Rockets will have a chance to rest their players the last 5 games or so of the season as the #3 seed will have been pretty much notched up by then. So no to 60.

    This thread just reminds me how many bad losses the Rockets have on the resume. I mean some truly awful losses.

    If our super subs catch fire, they can produce even better than the starters. Here's hoping they stay hot.

    Just hope we beat out the 2015 record, because we are definitely at another level than that team.

    I'd still trade one single series win against the Dubs or Spurs for 60 wins.

    Warriors are the only game we will be the under dog.
    One game in Denver and
    One Game in L.A.
    The last two may be fighting for position.

    I think we should be able to go 10-4 at worse
    13-1 at best (I give them one off game)
    Nothing is guaranteed.

    We have a fighting chance

    I understand where you are coming from. But if we only have one loss by the time we are done with the Suns game on the 2nd then we would have already sealed the 3rd seed with no chance of getting the 2nd. It would not be to our benefit to play our starters 100% in any of those remaining games.

    We will most likely lose one of the GS games and maybe even 2 of the Nugget games.

    Come to think of it- if we are counting the playoffs then 60 games is almost a certainty. Hell, let's go for 70+

    60 wins is a media conspiracy.

    It's tough I want to get to at least 58 because historically speaking 58 win teams have a higher chance of winning a championship

    That remains to be seen. That squad was really good. If they could've stayed healthy we might have made the finals that year

    But im not even sure we will have 60 wins to trade.

    If we end up with 57 wins and you trade in 60 wins then you have negative 3 wins!

    Not good enough to make the playoffs :(
