You don't always get I can agree with that logic, but basketball reality is such where unfortunately not every game is picture perfect for the players and fans, not every quarter has you running on a 5-15 point lead. There will be games where we have to make a 4th quarter comeback and will. We'll obviously have those Bulls and Cavs games where we can't quite make it happen at the end. Sucks, I know. Gonna have those losess, oh well. When it looks to be a real trend with these guys, I'll worry. But I'm ok with a 52-55 game season, rather than a worn out 64 win squad, peaking too early.
