Don't Fret Clips

The Clips should not be in panic right now. This start, whether you like it or not, was expected. Playing 9 perennial playoff teams in our first 9 games. 1 win was almost a good result. So we're 1-8 after a very tough stretch in our schedule, a completely new team trying to gel, injuries, and an easy part of the schedule coming up. 

In our next 8 games we play Detroit, NJ, Minny, Indy, NY, NO, Sacramento, and Phoenix. This is a very crucial stretch in the season that will determine how the Clips will shape up this year. The Clips have a great chance to maybe even reach .500 after this stretch. Probably won't happen, but if the Clips want to have any kind of success this year they have to win at least 6 of these games. This stretch will show where we really stand. And if we can put a good run together in the next 8 games, it will gel the team together and give us confidence to start winning games against quality opponents. The next 8 games will be the most important part of the season for the Clips. If we win 6 like I predict, we'll be 7-10 going in to December where we'll play many playoff teams. Confidence for December's tough schedule will be vital. Let's take advantage of this easy streak Clips.

 

I think once this team gels, we'll be able to compete with the Utah's, San Antonio's, and Portland's of the year on a nightly basis.
