    I think there is almost no way they finish that low. With Bates/Funderburk in the middle and a very physical team that is versatile and defensive-minded (Hellems, Bates, Daniels), you should be in every game.

    And if Beverly is healed up and playing as he did over the last few games last year, then this team will content.

    I don’t think we will finish that low.
