Meaning their goal is to go 30-15 (.667 percentage) in the remaining games.
That's higher than it should be. 90 points is the usual playoff cut line, give or take 2-4 points. Cutting that down for a 48 games season that projects out to around 53 points. I'd say 51-55 points will be where the playoff line is. 56 should be a pretty safe bet to make playoffs, IMO.
