It is not about points, it is points above .500

#8 team is 4 points above .500

we are 1 pioint below .500

when you win a game you get 2 points but add 1 game so you are only gaining 1 point above 500 per win.

we are 5 points. so 5 wins behind #8
looking at the point total and thinking
a 2 point game brings us alot closer
gives a false impression

That 5 points we need to play 6 games and win them all while the other team goes .500.
