I'm going to take a cheery, cheesy, Life of Brian take on the next 5 games on our schedule. We can't lose!

Either we win (and I refuse to think that winning is a bad thing - the kids need some minor successes to build upon) or we lose and still win with draft position.

The next 5 opponents all have records under .386 so they are all within range of passing the Celtics for the higher "tank rank."

The Knicks don't have a pick so there's no motivation to tank and they've actually been on a bit of an uptick lately. The Sixers and Magic, however, are both 2-8 in their last 10 (just like the Celtics) and the Kings have lost 4 in a row.

So it's anyone's ballgames!
