Magic Number Update

So to follow up the earlier post on how the NBA sucks, here's a post on the NBA. If we all agree that the NBA sucks, would the fact that the Hawks suck within the NBA be one of those "a double negative has proven positive" situations?

Anyway, the Hawks lost again tonight, which eliminated Utah. Now the only teams that have a chance at the most ping pong balls are the Southeastern Axis of Charlotte, Atlanta and New Orleans.

Hawks have 10 games left. Magic number is the combination of Hawks' losses and other team's wins needed to clinch the most ping pong balls.

Charlotte: 7
New Orleans: 5

So if the Hawks go 3-7 the rest of the way (which would be twice as high a winning percentage as the Hawks have thus far), they clinch.
