They are playing decent ball, but they're really only one injury away from being mediocre. They struggled without Arenas the other night, against Boston (currently 9th in the division.) Their record for the last 10 is 4-6. They're only 5 games above Chicago, who sit in 11th in the division. Chicago and New Jersey have better records for their last 10 games. To call the Wiz playoff bound after 3/8ths of a season is very loyal of you. :)
This gives the Celtics the chance to make a run this year, and if things don't work out well, they go into the 2011-12 season (should there be one) with expiring contracts of Garnett and Allen on the books.
