How tough will it be to get those 8 Sonics wins/Nuggets losses? Here are a few factors to consider:
|vs. .500+ teams||8||10|
Remaining vs. Western Conference Top 8
The Sonics visit Denver on April 9. One would hope that, with a 10-game lead, the Sonics would have the division sewn up by then, but with all the injuries that are plaguing the Sonics and the Nuggets surging lately, that game could be what people like to call, "significant."
