I say yes. They had to take a step back to accomodate the 8 new players and Pat Riley. When compare records with our team over the past 2 months of the reg season I believe the 2 teams are about on par. They have improved their guards with Williams/Payton. Posey is a nice addition. Walker takes way too many shots but at least he is there. Trying to point out that this round is going to be a dog fight. Home court is all about having game 7 on your court if needed.
