We bumped up into poll option #2:

Tracker: 16/47 (last updated 1/29/2024 after start of Suns/Heat)

One person has a chance to be the only one to get it if they don’t play at least 13 more games together.

With 35 games remaining, looks like it'll be a tight race between poll options #3 and #4. Best case with perfect attendance, is now 51, which is in the middle of poll option #4 and the most popular option. "So, you're saying there's a chance?" It would require a minimum of 26 games out of the 51 remaining to get there.

Another thing to think about is we'll most likely be resting these guys near the end of the season depending on where we're at in seeding.

I can see the stars each taking a game or so off near the end of the season if our playoff spot is set even if they are healthy. Right toe soreness. 🤐

That’s to be expected.

Need to play 23 of 32 to get into that large group of us in the 42-58 range

I picked 29-41; I'd love to be wrong and have it be 42-58. Fingers crossed that we don't get some kind of nagging injury to one of the Big <= 3.

Tonight on the TNT broadcast, they were saying Beal will have to miss a couple games after he gets his nose reset.

Maybe he can go the Owen Wilson route and allow it to become part of his character. 👃🏻

Bumping this because the updated tracker is getting hard to find.

I’m the one person that was at 16-28, a prediction that I didn’t really expect to be too realistic; I was just pissed off about Beal’s first of seemingly dozens of setbacks this season. I can hardly believe that we’re now closing on 20 games remaining and it’s still in play.

Next poll... Who's going to highest scoring game this year? Could see Book go for 63.
Man, I was so close...

Yea... I feel you might be right. I felt they'd hit 29 given the historical data we have on them, then factor in that Booker would probably miss games to "load manage" when the other 2 would be playing.

Beal will be back soon. The only way they don't get up to the 42-58 bucket now is if one of them gets a big injury late in the season. Knock on wood.

We are very close to having that 42-58 group be unreachable…after tonight we will have 21 games left and will need 19 of them to have the big 3 play.

Yep. Here's the latest soon to be 23/61 due to Book's injury.

So the one-third that picked less than half the season are looking pretty smart now.

I'm assuming you're saying the 23% is 1/3? Other acceptable answer... 1/4. ;)
