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.

Were not 5 wins behind #8, we are 5 points behind, if we win and they lose, we gain 2 pts. Your way of thinking is actually giving the false impression were 5 games behind when in reality we are 2.5. Why over analyze it, its not only wrong but silly.
