So I finally thought it might make sense to start including the actual odds of the Jazz making the playoffs besides just following their project and actual records.
The odds of the Jazz making the playoffs jumped quite a bit after last night's win.
Hollinger still thinks we'll go 12 - 16 from here.
[Insert clever sig here...]
I'm very pessimistic, but after looking at the remaining schedule even I can't see the Jazz doing as bad as 12-16.
It's interesting to note that even though the Lakers are projected to miss the playoffs, they still won the championship in 10 of the 5000 simulated seasons.

Am I the only poster not scared of the Spurs? I know they're always our daddies, but our outside shooting is in another realm this year.
If Burks and Hayward keep continuing their progress, it will be a much different series this year if we meet them.
What would a trade do to the playoff odds? If the Jazz had a couple more victories or defeats I think they would be more inclined to make a move but they are stuck in the middle. Irregaurdless of a trade, the Jazz have two tought road trips after the break. March 4-9 @ Mil, @ Cle, @ Chi, @ NYK. Then a Tour of Texas, March 20 at Houston, March 22 at SAS and March 24 at Dallas.
Good news is the schedule spaces out well, Jazz only play back to back twice, and 15 home games to 13 on the road.
